Pattern 1853 Cavalry Trooper’s Sword, 1854 ©.

Introduced as the first universal pattern cavalry sword for both light and heavy cavalry, this sword came in for heavy criticism during the Crimean War (1854-1856), much of it ill-informed. Regiments often carried out unofficial bending tests on the blades, which severely weakened them.

It is possible that up to 50 per cent of the cavalry who fought in the Crimean War carried the new sword while the others had to use the Pattern 1821. At Balaklava it is known that some troopers at least of the 11th (Prince Albert’s Own) Hussars and 2nd (Royal North British) Dragoons were armed with the new sword.

Restricting your eating times

Restricting your eating times

The reasons for these health benefits relate to the fact that the human body appears to be designed to thrive in a cycle of “feast and famine.” By imitating the ancestral conditions of cyclical nourishment, your body enters into a state of optimal functioning. Three major mechanisms by which fasting benefits your health include:

Increased insulin sensitivity and mitochondrial energy efficiency. […] Reduced oxidative stress. […] Increased capacity to resist stress, disease and aging.

Big trade bets against Greek crash

A huge trade is betting against the collapse of Greece’s stock market.

optionMONSTER’s tracking systems detected the sale of 20,000 July 6 puts in the Global X FTSE Greece 20 ETF this morning, all of them in one print for the bid price of $0.05. This is clearly a new position, as volume was more than double the strike’s open interest of 8,176 contracts.

The put seller collects the $0.05 premium and is looking for GREK to stay above $6 through expiration two weeks from tomorrow. If the stock falls below that strike price, the trader will be on the hook to buy shares at that level. (See our Education section)

This appears to be what is known as a “nickel strategy,” a trade that has a reasonable probability of success but also carries significant risks in a sharp selloff, especially because such trades are often done with large leverage. The strategy gets its name from being likened to “ picking up nickels in front of a steamroller .”

GREK is off 0.7 percent to $10.57 near midday trading. The exchange-traded fund, which reflects Greece’s equities, has declined steadily since hovering above $24 in June 2014 as its debt crisis has intensified.

The nation will hold a referendum this Sunday on whether to accept concessions and stay in the Eurozone, a de facto vote on sitting government.

Today’s put sale makes up 86 percent of the total option volume in the fund.

What's behind big put sale in JNJ

Traders are betting that Johnson & Johnson will hold its ground for the next five weeks.

A print of 3,700 Weekly 97 puts expiring on Aug. 7 was sold for $1.05 this morning, according to optionMONSTER’s tracking systems. This is clearly a new position, as open interest in the strike was a mere 33 contracts before the trade occurred.

The put seller collects the $1.05 premium and is looking for JNJ to stay above $97 through expiration. If the stock falls below that strike price, the trader will be on the hook to buy shares at that level. Investors sometimes sell puts this way in hopes of picking up a stock at an effective discount to existing levels. (See our Education section)

JNJ is up 0.34 percent to $98.80 in early trade. The health-care products giant climbed to a recent high of $104.48 after announcing a $1.1 billion deal to develop Hepatitis C drugs with Achillion Pharmaceuticals on May 19, but the stock then pulled back sharply and has been range-bound for the last month.

The company is scheduled to report quarterly results on July 14.

What's behind put selling in Jive

Jive Software had seen repeated put selling in large volume earlier this year, and traders came back with the same strategy yesterday.

optionMONSTER’s tracking systems detected the sale of 20,000 July 5 puts for the bid price of $0.05. This is clearly a new position, as volume was far above the strike’s open interest of 1,546 contracts.

The put seller collects the $0.05 premium and is looking for JIVE to stay above $5 through expiration in mid-July. If the stock falls below that strike price, these put sellers will be on the hook to buy shares at that level. Investors sometimes sell puts this way in hopes of picking up a stock at an effective discount to existing levels. (See our Education section)

The name drew heavy put selling at the $5 level at least four other times this year.

JIVE ended yesterday’s session unchanged at $5.25 yesterday. The maker of business-intelligence software climbed to $5.99 on May 11 but has been pulling back since.

Yesterday’s put sale made up all but 2 contracts in Jive’s total option volume in the session. The name has an average turnover of just 635 a day.
