Guys, it is getting closer to expiration- so here is an update
On the call side the max OI is at 135 and 140 calls- please roll over the calls to march- alarge OI means serious resistance- you dont win these battles with the MM's
Rolling over to March gives you more time you still get to participate in the upside! Holding on to 135 and 140 feb calls or establishing new positions- you are basically erecting concrete barriers in front of a bicycle! Guess who gets hurt- it is not the concrete block the oI at 135 is at 4k and 140 is 5K- the volume in 135's is 8500- and the OI at 140 is nearly 5k- both have to come down to the 1K level or the forward progress will be halted. So please if you are long feb 135 calls and 140 calls and roll them over to March!
Not necessarily a brick wall. Could be a butter wall! These crooks/thieves line themselves on both sides. If they sold calls at 135/140, then yes, they will not let the price get above these numbers so that they can pocket the premium and not have to cover. But it is quite possible that many bought calls, in which case, they have every incentive to drive the price past these numbers so that they can make a hefty profit by selling the 'in the money' calls. Not sure which side of the aisle the thieves have lined up this time.
