Insider buying dropped nearly in half with insiders purchasing $21.26 million of their stock last week compared to $40.11 million in the week prior. Selling increased with insiders selling $1.94 billion of stock last week compared to $1.11 billion in the week prior.
Sell/Buy Ratio: The insider Sell/Buy ratio is calculated by dividing the total insider sales in a given week by total insider purchases that week. The adjusted ratio for last week increased to 91.2. In other words, insiders sold more than 91 times as much stock as they purchased. The Sell/Buy ratio this week compares unfavorably with the prior week, when the ratio stood at 27.77.

Not only is a bond market crash inevitable, but it will hit sooner than many think - by 2015 or 2016 at the latest, according to Michael Pento, president of Pento Portfolio Strategies.
Pento said of the bond market in an interview with The Street -
"It's the most overpriced, over-owned, oversupplied market in the history of American economics."

For more than a year now, I have posted periodic updates on the performance of several option trading strategies here at zentrader. These updates were intended to give traders an edge in the market, not only by showing which option strategies are currently profitable and which should be avoided, but how the options themselves can help predict future trends in the stock market.
Stocks and Options at a Glance
Beginning next week, I will begin publishing a brand new, re-designed series of option updates. The most exciting change in the new updates will be a new chart entitled “Stocks and Options at a Glance”. As the name implies, this new chart will allow readers to view the current state of the stock market as well as the performance of nearly every common option strategy, in a single glance.
