Starting to look like someone has figured out how to use Silver as a "catalyst" to turn Coffee beans into Cocoa !!!
Hope SIH11 stays under 28 at least till the dust settles this week.
Here's another trial balloon on boiling down the futures options data to see if it posts in an understandable form.
Looked at the expiring Feb. Sih11 options. I can't imagine that there is enough there [not much OI] for them to fiddle with the SIH11 contract.
BUTTTTT SIH11 is at 27.87 and not much movement now after the 0.3 move up earlier tonight.
For FUN, I will suggest that SIH11 will stay about where it is through expiration in 3 days.
If it rises to 28 then 414 calls go ITM and only 359 puts go out. If it drops to 27.5 or 27 MANY more puts go ITM and relatively few calls.
So, Trades, a good test. If SIH11 stays above 27.5 and below 28 the "most damage" will be done at expiration from what I see.
Below is the March data.
Well, I guess that's better.
For anyone interested, the problem posting a table with clear columns has a few "parts".
The CGI code used by the TFC bulletin board converts the text you type/enter into standard HTML for display AND uses "variable width fonts" to boot.
Also, you cannot use standard HTML to format anything. That is why your post will "blow up" if you use the "less than or greater than symbol [some think of it as left, right arrow]. These symbols bracket the HTML tags and their use will result in you losing your message/typing !!
Further, many/most spreadsheets use "tabs" for delimiters. The CGI software does not "include the tab" but converts it to the proper number of spaces. Then when displayed by your browser, all extra spaces are "dutifully removed" as that is the way HTML was designed.
So, as annoying as it is, it seems the best way is to convert all tabs to spaces and then substitute the "under score" character for the spaces. Reason, the underscore displays at the full width of the widest character of the font being displayed and doesn't screw up the column alignment. If you use a dot(period) "looks better to me" but it is smaller and screws up the column alignment.
OK, long story, but may help some folks trying to display data in a table form.
