April Gold Option Expiration

Today's the day. On the Comex close at 1:30 EDT, April gold options will expire. Anyone looking at the open interest late last week could clearly see that the "sweet spot" of minimum pain for The Banks was near $1200. Gee, where is price this morning?

Bill held the stick by the branches of the Y pinched between his thumbs and palms (at the end of his lifelines), palms up, wrapped his fingers around next, and then curled his wrists upwards causing the stem of the Y to point upwards, and started walking slowly across the sandy field, chanting an ancient rhyme with his eyes closed.
