I was wondering if experienced traders can shed some light on why did RUT soar yesterday (Friday 2nd) while there was doom and gloom news all over? In my opinion people are overreacting in regards to Trumps tarrifs on steel anyway. Just day ahead the ratio of put to call on RUT was 3:1. So what happened? Short squeeze on expiration Friday? Some big shots decided it was time to buy RUT? On march first someone bought 2444 put options with strikes 1475 and 1435 half volume each! It was not part of a spread. Couldn't see matching numbers. Anyway, I can't tell who/what moved RUT yesterday.
