Or all the downgrades after the 5C/5S announcement?
Or the reason this great company was hammered down to $388?
NO REASON EXCEPT THE USELESS WALLSTREET FIRMS ONLY REASON TO EXIST IS TO STEAL YOUR MONEY
I learned from my Apple losses, Ended up like you holding a lot of worthless Apple Calls. You have to find something with repeatability. . Don't go after the big 10 20 30 -baggers.
Used market order to sell the Nov 1st $525 at $14.95 before the lunch hour.
Missed that low around 2 pm ( I think it got down to $13.50 or so)
After missing that drop but in a close order for $13.75 around 3 pm or so
Order went throught before 3:30pm
gained a pt of those MMs today, plus my shares (and Aguu's too) are up $12 +
I was looking at the Nov 8th $525 but then noticed the Nov 1st $525 was only like a buck and change less so I wrote the Nov 1st $525 instead. Perhaps I should buy the Nov 8th $525, looks too cheap compared to the Nov 1st at same strike
I show the EMA 50 crossing above the EMA 200 on Oct 9th. I think that was the day it got knocked down hard but closed with a big gain.
UP NOW 9 DAYS IN A ROW. WOW!
With my brokerage account, no stock price triggers on option trades, and no stop loss orders on option trades, I should not be using this account for options. What would be great is multi-triggers, such as if Dow hits whatever and stock is over under whatever then do option buy or sell. That would be awesome.
We need a hitlist for judgement day. I nominate LNKD as a potential short attack victim. That big drop it had about 10 days ago was very unusual. it dropped like a rock that day
can't wait to see the carnage
I just bought my 490s back at close. A big oops by me. On Monday morning I was praying for a drop to buy them back , got the drop at open on Monday and STILL DIDN"T BUY THEM back , lots of profits slipped through my fingers and became a big loss. But I look at this way (in a desperate attempt to keep my ego intact) at least I was holding anything that expired worthless! Have a good weekend everyone.
Everyone can see it , but how do you know when to short? Last week or so I though for sure that was it. Made a few pts on puts but now it is back up again
nah, you should kick yourself for not buying the GOOG 995 calls that expired today
They were selling for 10 cents, TEN CENTS
and closed at $16+ SIXTEEN DOLLARS!
I vote, YES and good riddance, however, I wil still watch for good times to sell calls every now and then
Sold the $490 on Oct 1st for $11.43
Had many , many chances to close out the trade in the 4s 5s 6s etc
But instead I closed the trade today at 3:58 pm at $18+ for a 7 pt + loss
A big oops by me. I was really expecting a reality to reach market but didn't happen.
On the bright side, and this is the imoprtant part, I can look it as though I went long an option at $18.58 and sold it at $11.43
That';s pretty good for the retareded muppet I am
This muppet is hold ing his head high !
