they have been way too greedy by selling tons of put options to unsuspecting buyers but every once in a while they get their rears handed to them on a plate for scamming the common people.
some big fund managers also feel it is perfectly fine to sell worthless calls to unsuspecting buyers.
a flush for certain big money managers is very good for all markets. and i enjoy constantly taking away ALL of their money.
you simply do not know stock trading, or stock investing.
you NEVER buy a "break-down".
you "sell" a break-down.
computer algorithmic trading programs are already keen to all movements(they are ALL selling right now), so they always take away all of your money.
That's the temptation/risk that put sellers are now facing in a high risk market (overbought).
In order to save their losses they use very tight stop-loss orders and sell assigned shares on the open market in order to raise cash positions. When the short sellers are 100% satisfied there are no more buyers and the slide lower continues.
Remember when no one knew why the "flash crash" happened years ago? Well, I knew the answer but no one asked.
So I simply trade and I very much enjoy trading.
Make a ton of money v.
FYI, I loaded-up on put options this week in many equities (That is, across the board).
My posts are always my own opinions.
Watch and learn something this time people.
stk, you are about to lose your #$%$ here.
i have been a trader since the 1990's and you are about to learn something about "break-downs" (happening right now).
i posted the trading action for this week here for all to benefit but don't think i'll keep giving away secrets, nor will i leave them posted for very long on these message boards.
They'll get assigned on every put they sell which will cause a cascading effect of more & more sellers.
As they are "assigned shares" they'll be forced to sell those shares that were assigned.
This is my own opinion of what's about to happen to AMAZON put sellers.
Ending the week at $690 even (or lower).

Petrobras is the most indebted oil company in the world, and low oil prices have made the debt burden – which stands at about $130 billion – increasingly difficult to manage.
