interesting comment. Let me add my two cents worth of speculation. If a big pharma offers a buyout price, no MM in the world can keep you down from making money. I experienced this personally with DELL where I made a killing.
how much does TradeStation charge? I believe they are reasonable
did you use ameritrade or scottrade? They charge .75 per contract and if you got 100 contracts you will be down by 75
I said "SHOULD"
