A winner and a loser for the session. The markets had a small gap up and headfaked both directions early but never got going. We closed basically on the VWAP both sides, and if you look at the NASDAQ in particular, it was dead flat to start the week. Volume was 1.85 billion shares.

Net ticks: -2.5 ticks.

One call stopped and the market was so dull for the first 90 minutes that we didn’t have any calls on the short side. ES < LPT was set and would have worked great, for example. See that section below.
Net ticks: -7 ticks.
