Interesting time technically for BHP as the stock price flirts with the resistane set out early in the year (Dec, 03 & Feb/March 04). If we see the price break through 12.70-12.80 then technically its blue sky ahead smile.gif

firky i wrote a long response and i lost my cable connection last night. grrr.gif

open interest for july is highest around $12.50 strike. smarter folk than you and i are looking for a close around here on july 29.

before you take too many long call positions you need to have some kind of strategy in place or you will lose plenty of money in ETO's.

you have a a tidy %% profit atm consider taking it and then do lots of reading.

good luck

I am sorry to tell you but if you are holding those options they expired last month.

Hopefully, you mean July.

Hi Wolverine

Holding BHP4A they exire 24-06-04. Bought at 54c so happy with today's close and sitting on a profit (though only small).

Last few lot of option trades though have taught me that I really suck at exit strategy. So would appreciate opinions B4 calling this one.

TIA
Firky

what options are you holding? more info would help.

BHP like most major resource stocks should benefit from the latest round of commodity upgrades from analysts in the last week or so.

Smith Barney virtually upgraded everything this week.

Hi All

Reasonably new to this and looking for advice.

Holding some BHP options. Wondering if anyone has any targets and timeframes for BHP after today's run up and pending August 18 announcement.

All opinions appreciated.

TIA
Firky
