Massive Momo Update

People keep writing me asking if this rally is real or if they should be paying attention to all that bearish talk they keep seeing on the financial news.

But what we are facing over the coming weeks and months will register several standard deviations beyond current worst case scenarios, at least based on activity/pricing I’m currently seeing in the option chains.
