Today is options expiration day, check out how this session has performed specifically in June.
Key Event: Quad Witching Options Expiration

Event Details: Quadruple witching options expiration refers to a date on which stock index futures, stock index options, stock options, and single stock futures expire simultaneously. While stock options contracts and index options expire on the third Friday of every month, all four asset classes expire simultaneously on the third Friday of March, June, September, and December. Once an options or futures contract passes its expiration date, the contract is invalid. Therefore, traders must decide what to do with their options by this last trading day.
