futures red now. sandp up 400 points in 2013. even if it dropped 100 points, it would still be up 300 points for the year. thats still huge. a pull back for year end selling would not unusual.
did anybody see those huge buys for 425k and 155k share and a few other big ones? Those are what spiked the volume and they could be a short entering just as much as they could be long. in my observations, short enter in very big share amounts. longs enter in small and average in. just my opinion though. the next few days trading will tell if they were long or short positions.
If WS likes to use news as reason to justify where technicals send markets, I would think the adoption of the Volker rule could be that reason to make the correction you're anticipating through EW.
Could those large blocks have been shorted shares? That's what I've observed when I've seen large blocks go through on the buy side. Likewise when I see large blocks going through on the sell side, I figure its some short exiting.
You bashers all work for the same company? You all seem very organized. Feeling insecure?
he should be in prison. taking a short position then making false claims.. prison for life.
Look bud, I own shares long term and I own options. If options aren't a legitimate vehicle to trade a stock with then they shouldn't be sold. I made a very valid question about the motives behind data, data that might be skewed by big $$ investors that could harm my options investment. All I said is I wish there was more definitive data about how options were bought so I could make a better decision. When data is presented and shows a high amount of interest, its only natural a person would like to know the facts that make up that data. I don't need a lecture about short term thinking. If you believe options aren't a credible vehicle then you should say it. But don't criticize me because I think better data would be able to provide better analysis. thanks
but it sure would be valuable information if we knew when options were bought if they bought long or as a short position using a long vehicle. Knowing that might cause a person to make a better informed decision is all Im saying.
I saw that statement. If it were that easy to be on the right side of a trade, we'd all be rich. Those kinds of comments give hope but can also meant to lure in people who might think a rise is iminent when it could be the opposite. The call volume is very high. Who know though if those calls were bough long or sold to open and meant to be short? I wish that kind of detail was available on options activity.
watch the spread on your options. this am mine was .20 .45/.65... all the others was .05...outrageous then share price tanked. not sure what goings on here. don't want to get excited because too many times been dissappojnted.
share price hardly moved. im beginnging to think too much bullishness is a bad sign. seen it before. want the best but been burned way too many times in these scenarios. its too easy for ws string pullers to see high call volumes and bet against. way too easy.
Why did this stock drop so much over the past month? Any reason for it? Just rumors? Or an actual event or PR? Just curious. Noticed lots of buy activity today even though stock iwa red most of day. thanks in advance.
