    What happened to timberlane?....Did he go bankrupt?

    I remember he was posting his new strategies after he got destroyed when AMZN gapped up after its earnings.

    And now, it's up substantially since then, and timberlane doesn't post anymore.

    It's a brutal game.

    • "Small players who are underfunded are the option buyers "

      Some of the biggest institutional money firms are monstrously big buyers of options to hedge their portfolios. Small retail option buyers account for only a small percentage of overall option volume.

      But either buyer or seller, options come with a rather thick disclosure booklet for a very good reason. lol

    • So, it looks like you did mention selling December short straddles after all. I was wrong about that. You weren't specific about them or anything, but you did mention them. Now we're even for the rediculous lies you were trying to tell about me a couple of weeks ago.... Remember when you kept paraphrasing/twisting my posts from several months ago to make it seem like I said that OPEX has no bearing on AMZN's price movement when I clearly said at all times that my opinion is that OPEX considerations are secondary to other forces that can move the stock? Anyway, I missed that post about your December short straddles and I take reaponsibility for that.


      I'm 99% sure that I didn't miss anything about the NOV 125 puts. You did not post that sale in real time, coffee or no coffee.

    • "What happened to the NOV 125 puts you said you posted the sale of in real time? Are you going to apologize for lying about that?"

      Nope, I am going to let you look a little longer. Go put a pot of coffee on.

    • "Now that I have shown you the post, are you going to apologize, or just keep ranting like a lunatic? "

      What happened to the NOV 125 puts you said you posted the sale of in real time? Are you going to apologize for lying about that?

    • BTW, did you even bother to read the post you just replied to?

    • "All we saw from your posts recently are that you sold $120 calls then $130 calls (December, January and April) as AMZN was getting higher and higher"

      Really?

      "Then you just disappeared."

      I have posted every single day.

      "But you shouldn't have survived if you had the short positions you said you have."

      Why?

    • I have to agree with Gloptopus. All we saw from your posts recently are that you sold $120 calls then $130 calls (December, January and April) as AMZN was getting higher and higher and you were getting madder and madder. Then you just disappeared. We all assume you have capitulated. Don't get me wrong. You often have a good insight on the market. But you just made a tiny but fatal mistake. You decide to continue fighting one stock when market has told you clearly that you are wrong.

      I know today is a good day for bears to resurface. But you shouldn't have survived if you had the short positions you said you have.

    • "And whatever you claim you are "looking at" is not a real-time post for a sale of NOV 125 puts. That post does not exist and you know it. I've looked at your entire history from earnings through the end of NOV OPEX. You did not post a real-time sale for NOV 125 puts. Period. You are pretending to have a cute reason for not providing proof but the reality is, the post doesn't exist. End of story."

      Look harder...

    • "You haven't mentioned anything about selling puts beyond NOV OPEX."

      Sure I did. Since I don't want you staying up until 5am looking for my posts again, I will give you this one for free:

      "(until you said you were going to sell some puts against a new short position that you claimed you took a couple of days ago.)"

      Wrong. Per usual.

      "That is until AMZN shot up $12 in three days. Now all of a sudden you had a whole bunch of short puts to close out for a profit? Is that what you're saying? Pretty typical."

      Do you realize how stupid you look time after time? You are so hell bent on "proving me wrong" that you are blinded. You come on here and rant and rave and make yourself look like a fool. Pretty typical.

      Now that I have shown you the post, are you going to apologize, or just keep ranting like a lunatic?

    • "I had short straddles. I bought back all the puts that I was short."

      So, when did you sell these straddles? I haven't seen any posts that correlate with this claim. Last month you posted that you sold Jan 120 and 130 calls, December 130 calls, and April 100 calls. You haven't mentioned anything about selling puts beyond NOV OPEX. (until you said you were going to sell some puts against a new short position that you claimed you took a couple of days ago.) That is until AMZN shot up $12 in three days. Now all of a sudden you had a whole bunch of short puts to close out for a profit? Is that what you're saying? Pretty typical.


      "You mean yesterday?"
      Yes.


      And whatever you claim you are "looking at" is not a real-time post for a sale of NOV 125 puts. That post does not exist and you know it. I've looked at your entire history from earnings through the end of NOV OPEX. You did not post a real-time sale for NOV 125 puts. Period. You are pretending to have a cute reason for not providing proof but the reality is, the post doesn't exist. End of story.
