They only give OPINIONS....How much you put into those opinions is up to you. You can find an opinion to support buyers and sellers.
That's all we need....Even more Government regulation. An idea? How about you take whatever you read as INFORMATION to decide for yourself. Unless like many, you think it's best to let the Government decide for you.
Just doesn't seem like the correct play to me for POTENTIALLY fantastic earnings and big stock movement. This does not seem the time to "define risk",while limiting potential reward substantially. Another time yes but if anything, one could consider a straddle here.
There isn't anything nefarious about "dark pool" prints. These are simply trades done dealer to dealer and are cleared up at the end of the trading day. We would buy/sell securities and would match the transaction after market closed. More a function of not having to deal with the inputting of trades during busy trading hours than anything else. Not sure what you could possibly gain from seeing these trades on a more timely manor?
I'm holding longer term options but also a fair amount that will expire probably worthless tomorrow...23 calls. But I pretty much always view options as a gamble of sorts. My April 18 calls hopefully aren't a big gamble.
Micron has been on a tear recently...Even today it finished green while the market was down over 100. I don't get what some of you expect? If it's not moving up 2% per day something is wrong? Lots of post today wondering about Micron and "what's wrong!". Nothing is wrong unless you know something I don't? If your a long term holder, I don't get the concern. If your a day trader, I don't get the concern....
I get the same sick feeling in my gut trading this time to time that I got back in the day as a NASDAQ Market Maker trading Yahoo at $400 plus. We would refer to this action as a whip saw and it was easy to keep landing on the cutting side. Right now I just have April 18 calls...Normally I wouldn't buy that far out and that far in the money but MU has forced me to do so. If you REALLY want to eat antacids, try day trading the 22 1/2 or 23 calls expiring tomorrow.....Adrenaline junky fix.
$22.40 low...$22.91 high during first 4 minutes of trading!
I wouldn't probably sell the 26 call because it's not enough to limit up side if blow out earnings. I do think it would be smart to buy a put however.
Also...Though I really think we are going to probably close right here at .22...I'm hoping at least another test of days high. What could work against us would be a drift downwards of the overall markets through close because of the run up this morning.
I'm fresh some 21 1/2 puts here expiring tomorrow at .16....Tough getting idea of close and beyond through tomorrow though.
Sure they are...They arent trading without human interaction and round figures work best for most. I usually put stops around these numbers because of that. Heck, even high low shoots for 10 pennies. Why not 9 or 11?
