So assume that for the 47.5k cleared you'd need at least 475 options contracts assuming each nets him $100 in profit (which was unlikely) during that periood. Meaning there was an additional 700+ (remember a buy and a sell are 2 separate transactions) options traded that's not reported in the put contract volume in the WHOLE TIME between Sep to Dec for Apr 2.50 puts to even make this feasible.
I would too be interested if you announce the details of the new position you plan to open against GURE. However, I tend to leave you on ignore so I'm sure I'll miss it.
Is it me or does it look like that moving the price up takes a less shares than moving the price down? Meaning, if someone was trying to buy and sell small batches of this stock to push the price down they need more stock to sell than they buy to get the price down even when selling large batches at the end of the market so the stock closes down. This seems to be going on for a while.
Has anyone looked at the order volume for upticks vs downticks and have an exact ratio?
Would be apt to buy more if the stock is price was cheaper but then that might be one of the reasons it seems harder for the price to come down than to go up.
