    What exact time is opex?

    Is it 11:59 today, 5:30 yesterday, or what moment do MMs need to target?

    • I know I do right now, example I was up close to 5k (yeah not much but) with April 17 $230 calls, and now, down. :(

      But yeah, everyone learns and some on this board have helped, but like I said, you learn from your mistakes, everyone makes them and learns. I've been doing options for 2 yrs and still learning the different ways to make money (and lose) using options.

      I've been trading stocks for 5 yrs and never did the "buying/selling short" because I'm not sure how it really works. So i'm reading and asking about that.

      In my opinion there is too much BS on this board with user like (indian, stocker, and some others)with their bogus buys, sells, etc. However, there are some informative postes on here as well, though its tough at times to pick out the good from the bad.

      We learn everyday, I won't learn if you don't ask and try.

      your questions were answered. They were just pointing out some things you should know is all. trying to help. Maybe alittle sarcastic but help is help.

      Options close at end of day
      Settlement is on Saturday
      Max pain is still at 210
      It's the last trading day for March Options.
      It's risky and this is a crazy manipulated stock. One of the biggest companies in America. You can make some money but you could lose alot. Especially today.

      They shake you out and it works. You must be on the ball with this one.

      I will personally apologize if I said anything to offend you.

      Stick around, you will learn WHO is giving good info. It is slim, but some people try to help.

      • I'm the one to apologize, I didn't notice you were one of the answers above. Thanks.

        I am indeed a beginner so I'm taking it slow. What fascinates me though is that MMs really have that power to move the stock on a company of this size. I wonder how large percentage of AAPL is affected by this kind of tampering, as opposed to being locked in as long term positions, but if it is something like 10% or so I can see the potential for volatility.

    • If you have to ask that you better run from options as fast and as far away as you can.

      If you think that you can make money on this scam stock options on scam stocks are even a bigger scam.

      I pray you are not a head of household if you continue to play with options.
