The markets are testing higher as we approach the open on options expiration day, this day has often shown a bias.

Key Event: Options Expiration


Description: The monthly expiration date for listed stock options in the United States is normally the third Friday of the contract month or the month that the contract expires. Once an option 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.
