I've been talking about a "super rally" for a while now. My first article on it was on July 28th (Click here to see the article). At the time, SPX was only at 1385:
SPX touched 1475 on Friday. That's 90 points or +6.5% on the broader market. All through August, the market traded in a tight range and most analysts were calling for the market top, even after SPX had broken above 1400. We acknowledged their views but stayed with our own, and have been raking in the profits in the past couple of weeks. Once of our long-time subscribers exclaimed in the Trading Room on Friday:

This is one of the best times to trade options. VIX is low so the premiums are low. But, the movements are big as we are in a "super rally". Too many people are still in denial of this rally, and many have begun to play "catching up". If you think you've missed this rally, you haven't. We are perhaps only in the 2nd inning!
