    AS THE OPTIONS TRADERS BAIL, IT SHOULD BE OBVIOUS THEY ARE NO FRIEND TO LONGS !!!!!!!

    They jump in and out ( which is legal) to scalp a tiny chunk of the longs equity.
    as doc post...it doesn't care about capital appreciation. it cares about probable
    cyclical gyrations to swoop in with it's doc scalpel to slice some of the equity for it's self. The longs carry the load and most risk. So longs who support them clogging this board, bumping others messages off and thinking it is their right to do so. just remember.....they care nothing about the company that supports all us longs. they are parasites on our company. and they show their mean spirited selfishness here every day. they not only manipulate sp. They manipulate sentiment and this board.
    if you think that is a good thing well you are a fool. they are a blight. A sore on the surface of finance and investing. they do not build companies or add jobs. Quite the opposite. but hey free market. Fine. And this is a free public forum about agnc, not just for options pirates. I am long. And most longs gave up posting here. Wonder why?? I don't.

    • I'm a long term holder and a option trader, covered calls mostly. Option traders buy and sell with one another based on how they think the option is valued. What they do does not effect the stock price, it's the other way around.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • Why the attitude? It almost sounds like you're jealous.I used to just hold for the dividends but decided to learn about options.The traders on here were happy to share their strategies now I do both.If I could get the CD rates that my father used to get during Reagons years I wouldn't bother with the stock market at all.Learn about options and you will be glad you did. It's a lot more exciting (and stressful) than buy and hold.If you can multiply your gains with the leverage of options, what's wrong with that?The whole market is a rigged game,if you can tip the odds in your favor why not?

      Sentiment: Buy

    • I post here and I don't do options or short stocks. Ever!
