Not much for options expiration, although the Opening Range plays worked yet again (1 stop out and 2 winners) and the extra trade call was set up nice but didn’t work on the ES. The ES left a small gap above and traded in a narrow range. Triple expiration was only 2.2 billion shares, which is obviously up (and not real) but not as big as a usual triple expiration.

Net ticks: -7 ticks.
