Thanks for the help crackheadz. Sybil, knowing that optionz crackheadz would be of no use in answering this basic question, called the dealerz of the crack to get the answèr. The cboe only tradez index optionz until 4:15pm est . The rest trade during regular market hourz only.
I can't speak for all crackheads... I typically trade puts pre-earnings. My thought process is I can limit my downside to the option premium and hope for a big downward move off earnings.
So Sybil, maybe you can enlighten me. Do you really think that institutions would invest billions so they could manipulate the stock price in a effort to keep a few $$$ in premiums?
Seems far fetched to me.
