Options Trading: Markets to Rise Another 22%!

Options Trading: Markets to Rise Another 22%!

By: Bob Pisani
CNBC Reporter

Every day, traders write to me saying, have you ever seen anything like this rally, Bob? When was the last time you saw this?

Well, now we know, thanks to the number crunchers at Bespoke: it’s pretty rare. Since September 1, the S&P 500 is up 27 percent.

Stock market option trading

Bespoke found 5 periods where the S&P charts matched nearly perfectly with the action of the last six months: 1935, 1949, 1953, 1958, and 1995.

What they found: in each of those five cases, the S&P 500 saw additional gains over the following 12 months with an average gain of 22.1%!

Thank you, Paul Hickey at Bespoke.
