Dude - max pain for this Friday is $235 right now, but it could easily slip to $240. Either way, that is a good drop from Today's close. You were not patient enough - this dog moves quick once it turns.
to each his own, but why would you play that weekly options game in AMZN? How accurate is those weekly max pain numbers? Probably mostly a bullish scam to fleece retail put buyers. think the whole weekly options is a new way to fleece the public.
I own Put options for Apr 2013, but I look at the weekly numbers to gauge where the money and bets currently are. With AMZN, is usually tells a pretty good story. I use that plus other technical indicators to decide when to straight short for short term gain.
