Up Up And Awaaay!!

Is it a bird? No!  Is it a plane? No!  What is it? It’s a bear being shot out of a canon! And I’m not even exaggerating as this rally may be nearing its first leg but is long from being over.

If you’re new to options then I suggest you point your browser to to the first three posts in our ongoing tutorial series on option theory.
