SPX: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
Today's economic calendar is mostly empty, with overseas data the only events.

Chinese retail sales and inflation numbers, released last night, may affect trading this morning--especially in commodities.

The only scheduled event on the today's calendar is the Bank of Japan's interest-rate announcement tonight. The news could affect trading because strong Japanese equities and a weak yen have helped support global sentiment this year.

Tomorrow remains relatively quiet, with French and Italian industrial production scheduled for the morning. The Federal Reserve will also release minutes from its last meeting in the afternoon.

The agenda is more active on Thursday as retailers report same-store sales and the Labor Department announces initial jobless claims.

So far, my articles have taken you through a logical progression of option theory and fundamental concepts of options. As of yet, I have not mentioned a single strategy and for a good reason! The actual application of a strategy should come AFTER you learn about the option product itself.
