“If it’s obvious, it’s obviously wrong” – Joseph Granville
I think most people, me included, is expecting a down move on Monday, which means it will probably close up instead.
The most tricky scenario I can think of assuming the market is rigged would be a gap down and close green on Monday. Then they could drop it Tuesday and Wednesday, but close the week green.
I’m expecting the moves to be a lot smaller next week, and I plan to write a cash secured put on Boeing stock (2 week 150 strike) if we gap down on Monday since I wouldn’t mind owning more shares at an effective price in the low 130s.
Daily chart of QQQ below. I suspect we trade in the 175-205 range for a couple weeks.
