    Something I noticed about a yr ago.

    I have come to the conclusion that the powers to be that drive these stks up and down. Just rape the options players every mth...Options expired last Fri. They closed it at $9.99. or right at $10. Thus making every $10. call and above worthless...Same with puts. $10. and below expired worthless. Right now, if you look at the options board. It still looks like $10. is the magic number. Right now if the stk were trading at $10, at expiration...It would make all but about 400 of those puts, and 1,000 or so of those calls worthless again. Just remember PLD closed 2 wks ago at $10.73...Just for them to snatch it back to $10. on options expiration....But there is really no way, , to know how the PTB have their money positioned. But I do like to study the options board and try to figure it out...I think I learned something on IBM last mth...If they are selling a lot of puts on a stk. for no reason other than people are betting it will drop. Don't you believe it. If they have the equity to sell all those puts. They have the money to drive it up and wipe them all out...I think TPB, sell all those puts. The calls are a different animal. Us, Joe six packs sell a lot of them agains our stk...So you can't really know, where they are on them. But getting back to DRYS...It looks like $6. is the magic nuber right now. But for some reason, when I was looking at it earlier, I was thinking they could drive it up to $7.50 and not be getting hurt. Don't pay me too much attention. Hell all those numbers could change dramatically in the next wk. Good luck...

    • Ok, Shook me out today. I guess I will be on the sidelines for a while. Maybe we will see the big correction everyone is talking about. Been looking at FXP (shorting the Chinese market) but have not bought yet.

      • Well I got my 10% correction on DRYS in one day. I had 100 $5. calls that I paid .90 for a couple of days ago. This morning they were bid .70 ask .80....I put a bid in at .75 for anouther 100...Didn't get them...But I sold 80 of the 100 I had at 1.20 and just sold the other 20 for $1.30...I also bought 900 shrs this morning at $5.669. And sold them at 6.26...Got a good lick on CIT today also. A blind hog will find an acorn once in a while....I am up about 8k for the day and have most of my money in cash right now...I am looking a pull back...Hope you done OK....Good luck...

      • do not listen to fu$king analysts... they know nothing... no correction in this market... reason: big pullback, people start buying on the same day... so no correction... people on the market thought US not in recession... they also thought stocks so cheap... they think sp500 will go up to 1350 year end..
