piles of sideline money waiting for a sizeable pullback to buy into,
money rotating into beaten down sectors,
earnings and outlook continue to expand.
new qtr new fiscal year fund placement.
you stink and stew in your profound chronic mental illness.
living off the backs of taxpayers and your families,
as you sneer off everything.
and pss away your days and years.
you're crowned the markets peak.
you sneered off everything.
and you turnaround,
and crowned the markets peak.
right back into puts at pc on that big eod ramp into close.
and got the pc fold over and held over.
strongly felt it would be instantly given back.
was pretty annoyed when market held that last test of 197 and went nuts to upside.
looked like 197 was gonna fail and then, boom.
had a 50% open gain and didn't take it. came back to entry and tagged me out and got right back into puts at late day test of pc.
see if 197 can fail today.
it's a biggie.
buying options going into earnings is a suckers bet.
selling the outers is far safer.
and this time around iv more bloated than usual,
even with that, nearly every beta has tossed out an 200 - 300% on ntm puts the day after earnings.
fb 78p tossed out 100%.
most everyone else tossed out even more.
nflx, amzn, vmw, trla, googl, etc,
that's the proper play.
money is going out of betas and being reallocated.
your win rate would more than make up for the any loss.
i didn't stick to my original game plan and that was to short any and all betas going into earnings.
trula bidu and others the latest disaster du jour.
having an owl and red hawks and now doves on property is fantastic.
in many cultures you are blessed if an owl makes your home his home.
keeps the crows away, very smart and devious birds can't stand their racket. in monticeto there was an enormous flock of crows that would hang out in a series of oak trees across the street and at 5am on a sunday, the one day i can sleep in, they are out there in the oak trees going apesht.
every morning was a highly grating racket from that huge flock of crows.
i really learned to despise them.
shoulda shot one because apparently when you kill one the entire flock takes notice and moves on.
they may be eurasian collared, they came into oregon a decade ago.
the size is right but eurasians do not have black spreckles on backside like mourning doves which these had, especially the two females, and neither supposedly have brilliant flash of orange plummage under wings and hop up and down trees like clumsy woodpeckers. mostly spent time on floor acting live doves. they made quite a spectacle of themselves. .
owl hangs out in woods next to us and keeps us company but yet to see it. we certainly hear it every night. red tailed mama hawk and baby hawk in treetops right above us past two summers constantly crying out, they are great but appear to have moved on for now. those doves were bold to be hanging out on owls and hawks home turf.
want to see a snowy owl at work some time in depths of winter, they've made a big comeback past few years in northern plains.
