NEW YORK, Oct 31 (Reuters) – Options on the iShares MSCI
Japan Index fund attracted a rush of bullish trading
activity on Friday after the Bank of Japan significantly ramped
up its stimulus program.
The Bank of Japan shocked global financial markets on Friday
by expanding its massive stimulus spending in a stark admission
that economic growth and inflation have not picked up as much as
expected after a sales tax hike in April.
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Pandora Media Inc shares slid more on Thursday, touching a 52-week low after the Internet radio service operator’s disappointing results last week, but trading in the options market showed some expect the share price to recover.
Pandora shares have shed nearly a fifth of their value since Oct. 23, when it reported a lower-than-expected increase in listeners in the third quarter. The shares were down 3.3 percent to $18.59 on Thursday. But the weakness prompted some bullish bets on the stock in the options market.
