Do you know how many people have come along before you saying the exact same thing, only to lose it all in the blink of an eye?
Well, the only saving grace is, people who invest as foolishly as you never have much money at all to risk anyway, so it's not like you're losing anything significant to begin with right. People who have real money, aren't this stupid.
So go ahead and play Russian roulette with your 600 bucks, good luck
You are sounding agitated that someone with less experience than yourself can trade you under the table. You must be long VXX and looking to take your frustrations out on others, because all that time you have spent learning how the market works, not doing you a bit of good, because you are too afraid to take any risks. Keep in mind, scared money never wins. I appreciate you sharing thoughts about options, greeks etc, but the whining and childish attacks are getting old. If you truly know something about the market and option trading, then you know that my account is significantly higher than the $600 that you mention, or I wouldn't be able to short calls in my account. Check around, see what the brokerage firms require. Stop exposing your own naivete!
