    OT:AMZN; Options experts, please respond..

    I asked this question in AMZN board.

    Actually, what I need: In general, whether MMs will try options that have huge OI worthless on OPEX?

    Below is my question. AMZN is an example here.


    Looks like AMZN close below 160.00 tomorrow.

    But there is a huge OI on 160 & 165 puts compare to calls on same strikes. If it closes below 160, market makers will have a big loss. In order to avoid that pain, they need to close above 165 and make worthless all puts below 165.

    Will that happen? Is there any chance tomorrow that it will close above 165 after all this negative news and bearishness in this current trend?

    Appreciate your comments.
