Oh my sweet summer Taques...
Alas I cannot.
I decided to buy nothing but indexes.
Funny thing about funds that are intimately tied to the market as a whole and how they act when the market as a whole takes a giant poop on my dreams...
Money no money come back!
Poor Taques can't calendar.
i can’t afford one
We probably have a poster around here somewhere with an extra Cats of 1986 poster
Psh like I’d part with my Cats of 1986 calendar...
Naked call writing gone bad
If anyone wants to bet against natural gas buy $boil puts
I’m utilizing DGAZ
I'm easing my way into Amazon. I've got about 25% of what I want to put in, in.
I want to buy more Boeing as well.
If you have a longer term outlook there's a ton of stuff on sale right now.
GE steady makes new lows
What’s the consensus, time to buy yet? Time for them to sell off/break up?
I do think GE is undervalued and has long-term upside with high likelihood of short-term losses.
Idk, I’ll probably just keep moving all savings and potential investment funds into my Vio 2.25% account. Feds raising rates, market continuing to trend down/correct, blah blah blah.
what are we buying today boys
All my buys are for the long-term. I've just been strengthening my positions in ZUO, EPD, and ROKU recently.
I shorted it but I don’t know what I’m doing
So do I understand this correctly: you sold off the GE stock you had (at a loss) expecting a) then to drop more in the short term, and b) that you’ll purchase them back at an even lower price?
He sold stocks someone else had.
The other two parts are right, but then a part c) where the stocks return to the original owner, and he pockets the difference.
Why didn’t I buy LBranda before the holiday season started? Great dividends and excellent short-term growth. Man I am bad at this...
We’re all good when looking in the rear view mirror, don’t sweat it.
I know it’s not likely but if they strike a deal and end everything the market will open up 10% on Monday.
Yield curve inverted.
How long until we're all poor and paying our utility bills with pinches of gold dust?
I think the equifax stock will be driven down to $95 by Feb 28. How much would I win on a $1000 option?
Do you mean $100?
There isn’t an expiration date in February right now. Only Jan and April
I really need some eli5 options articles haha.
I thing they miss earnings which will be released early Feb. I want to make a play on that.
How can I make money on that?
I guess my only choice is to select an April end date? Why isn't there a Feb choice?
Got $1000 to play with.. ...
Do you work for them? What data lead you to that conclusion?
Buy options with strike prices of $100, expiring 4/18/19. Currently, each 100 contract purchase will set you back $535.
You can see how much money you'll make using this calculator right here http://www.optionsprofitcalculator.com/calculator/short-put.html
You'll make money if the stock closes below the strike minus whatever premium you paid for the option
This is an ELI5 article on options expiration: https://www.investopedia.com/articles/optioninvestor/03/090303.asp
Basically it's made up and determined by the CBOE
Thanks! Nah, but they're laying off people.
Word. Layoff usually boost stock prices, See GM.
Make sure it's also not already priced in so you don't get cucked.
They're pretty bearish anyway so you should be in the green, but I'm talking out of my ass.
I believe it's in preparation for a big miss.
How do I read the chart? Different bt buy and write? If the stock price is $95 on April 18 or whenever, how much do I earn?
Take a look at this:
He did options, right?
Put in that you're buying a put, not writing.
Spoiler: here's the chart
This thing is nice because you can see the option's value going down over time, this is one of those "greeks" discussed, Theta.
Say your prediction is correct and EFX is trading $95 on 2/28. Your profit per 100 contracts will be $121. If it's below that you're locking in more profit. Sell the fucker when/if this happens so you can avoid more theta decay losses.
here's the link to that chart so you can interact with the different cells
Lots of people think it will go down
If you buy a $100 option the stock has to go to 95 for you to just break even
How're you TSLA puts doin
GM puts are poppin tho
Already priced in. Dangit.
Any good puts out there?
Long. This AM i got 2 $149 strikes exp 1/4/19, they're up 54% on the day.
These are a little out of the money for my taste but after my October, I'm gambling with ~$50 lol.
Honestly, I'd wait for a green day on QQQ, then get some at different strike prices on diffrent dates to spread out your risk.
My pets heads are falling off!
Unloaded those puts.
Trying a new less greedy strategy.
My $NVDA puts are up almost 400% total so far.
post screens bitch
