was anyone assigned the spy march154 calls on friday morning ... looks like nasdaq-omx phlx allowed the on floor market makers to steal $1.5 million of the dividends ?
Absolutly 1000% correct,,, that was the game plan.....
All the itm calls held by non beginners were assigned. You would have to be crazy to have not exercised itm calls Thursday at close.
the issue isn't the exercise but the nasdaqphlx allowing m-ms to prearrange wash sales of 3million contracts to expand the pool so those that the windfall of non exercised would go to them rather than to original sellers ?
