    I posted this morning that the charts looked like a move was happening. I was not expecting a -700. I think we can get redder. My charts are not showing a real bounce coming.

    I am expecting 303 retest. Green into close and I will have no positions into the weekend.

    If the shorts give up like yesterday we will rip.

    Yeah, I just kept my SPY put as a bit of a hedge through the weekend. The 80% of my account I won't look at will get crushed but the 20% I do look at will be green :)

    trumps polling + the stock market tanking will let the Dems write the next bill likely with automatic triggers for continued payments, extensions of the robust UI benefits, on and on

    Thing you should be watching for is this BA flight certification. They will use the result of that to take the market up or down.

    They have been. And cooking up cancellations when a flight isn't full enough to fill one the next day.

    AA is such a piece of shit company. Even though I own a little stock in it and its major hubs are the two airports I fly the most, nothing would make me happier than to see it go belly up.

    I had the opportunity to fly private about a year ago. Need to up my day-trading game to make that the norm. Leave the commercial flights to Lyrtch and the rest of the proletariat untouchables.

    Couple weeks in to my new gig and will be working with stocks/options more than I have in a long time. Transferring over a small trad IRA to the new firm so I can fuck around and try to school myself up options a bit more. Haven't owned an individual stock in 5+ years. I know I wanna buy some DraftKings but also wanna hedge against the NFL getting cancelled. I haven't looked at prices on buying puts yet, but from what I recall via Series 7 a decade ago, long puts as a strike at or close to whatever I get the stock at in the next week is the general thought? I was thinking to look at mid/late August contracts as a decent time frame to get news about pre-season NFL games getting cancelled or MLB starting then stopping a month in to their season ...

    Also gonna buy some Twitter shares cause I respect the platform somewhat and hate FB. A tech/biz platform has speculated them moving to a subscription based model to undercut their need for ad based revenue (not they they've announced anything to thay affect) ...

    Why is it that profiting off puts feels so much sweeter than profiting on calls???

    my retirement account will drop 10K but I make $1K on a put and feel like Buffett

    Here's a pretty basic explanation of a btc portfolio for you. Curious for you to show anything that did similar.
