This is a fancy day.

How can futures react?

With today expiring, it is not just any expiring.

On four occasions on every calendar year, you have several things set to expire on the same day.

You have futures and future options set to expire today.

That brings us to the next big expiring, which is set for december 20. is there some kind of trade you can put on to capture that and the volatility?

We are coming off of this nice rally on wednesday evening in the s&p after the fomc meeting.
