Markets and a couple trade updates

Not much action in the broader markets to write home about today.  It’s been a day of mild bidding and little selling, and traders finally seem to want to catch their breath.  Could be the quiet before the storm. Or it could be the quiet before the quiet before the storm. I’d lean towards the latter.

I bought a little more APOL puts, dated out into the middle of next year and with strikes at about and just below the current quote.

That’s it for my trading today. RIMM’s earnings are up after hours and I’m nervous about that even though I just threw a tiny bit of capital at some calls there knowing that it’s mostly a gamble on sentiment/price/exhausted-selling into an earnings report. It is what it is.
