. . . I don't see AMZN going over $533.23 today.
Yeah, but does it matter? Shorts here are still deeply in the red and will remain deeply in the red until their brokers pull the plug.
Oh, one more thing. Didn't someone buy those 750K shares "dumped" at the close? Why did he/they buy those 750K shares?
"What the hell was that?"
They don't see that nothing is really happening.
They knock down the price, sell puts, and as soon as they finish selling enough puts, they stop knocking down the price. (When they don't knock down the price, the price returns to where it was.)
Therefore, those who manipulate this stock exploit shorts here.
Some shorts here bought puts earlier this morning and sold them for a loss around 2:16 p.m.
