Meta Strategy Derivatives Portfolio – Probability Map Update.
High Failure Rate
Friday’s high CPI print derailed another promising setup, as bad news instantly turned a contrarian take on sentiment into a self-fulfilling prophecy instead.
The remaining traders with long positioning all stampeded for the exit at once, and a low liquidity environment and negative gamma exposure did the rest.
