    SEC Complaint Filed

    Whether or not you think GOOG option prices are being manipulated (just pull up the puts or calls in any pricing model and compare that to the current market being made), I'd like to see what the SEC thinks...So I invited them to the party:

    "Thank you!
    This response confirms that the Division of Enforcement of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission has received your complaint. We are always interested in hearing from members of the public, and you may be assured that the matter you have raised is being given careful consideration in view of the Commission's overall enforcement responsibilities under the federal securities laws. It is, however, the Commission's policy to conduct its inquiries on a confidential basis. The Commission conducts its investigations in this manner to preserve the integrity of its investigative process as well as to protect persons against whom unfounded charges may be made or where the Commission determines that enforcement action is not necessary or appropriate..."

    As I've said, I don't mind losing money when I make a stupid decision...But something's wrong with the current markets being made for GOOG options. If you can't see that, then you're either a market maker, option seller or in denial.

    I just want a level playing field where I can win or lose based on skill. There's no skill involved when call or put owners can't sell their options at or even near fair value...Maybe the SEC will see that some normalcy returns to GOOG options pricing soon?
