I've been thinking about these calls all day. It would make sense that max pain would put the price at 15 on friday, but I can't imagine one person made a 4000 option buy 2 weeks ago with a strike of 15 dollars without having a good reason for it to go well over 15. In fact, it would have to be 15.40 or so to break even. Any rational person wouldn't go all in on one strike with just two weeks, when the price was already (at the time of that purchase) 14.85.
My interpretation is that there will be something spectacular in the next two days, so I am leaving my new options and shares from this latest pullback unhedged- let's see what we get!
