You may get an opportunity to liquidate your short position with a reduced loss right after the open today.
Don't think. Just place a market order to cover.
Go neutral, re-assess the current situation as objectively as you can, and then buy as many out-of-the-money calls (preferably Weeklys calls expiring this coming Friday) as you can with what you are left with after liquidating your miserable short position.
Then . . . only then, I assure you, AMZN will finally do what you've been wanting her to do for so long: she will collapse and hit $160 in several days.
You will feel vindicated.
How do you know even one trade is real?
According to my belief system, those who manipulate this stock just move bids and asks until we bite.
Right now, it seems that no one is really biting (to buy shares or calls), so they keep raising bids and asks. When they get high enough (above $383+), stupid shorts here will start buying shares or selling their puts.
Yesterday, near the close, I bought some calls.
This morning, AMZN dipped rather significantly.
My calls looked like they'd expire worthless.
I deployed my Martingale strategy.
It paid off. On average, I got out with a small profit.
Of course, I got off too early. I sold all of my calls when AMZN was still below $380.
I've had enough excitement for the day.
"The volume is pathetic and the market maker moves the stock price $1.00 on 100 shares and controls the supply."
Each time a transaction is made, the buying force and selling force are perfectly matched. All it takes to move the price higher or lower from that point is actually 1 share. Trading 1 share is legal.
How pathetic you shorts are!
You guys have been calling her SCAMAZON.
You just got became the latest victims of hers . . . again!
If you think this stock is rigged (as you claim), why do you expect her to move rationally?
Techstrategy, if you know so well how this market works, why do you keep losing money with your puts (and calls)?
The two stooges, Sybil and Techstrategy, are still . . . alive and spewing the same old garbage.
Is this a great country or what?
