    MCU1 only has 8GB on the EMMC chip...I know, because I replaced mine when it failed!

    Is there a tax benefit to selling to close an option position at a near-100% loss vs letting it expire worthless? My 850C expiring tomorrow isn’t looking good.

    Yep I bought a 2/28, a mid-May for the same reasons, and I’m waiting to buy a June 21 or 22 LEAP. Those prices aren’t moving nearly as much...the power of Theta and a big IV driving that.

    Hmmm I wonder if today was a good day to buy my first call options...time will tell!

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Thanks KarenRei, this is very helpful and insightful, particularly the bits about how to structure the spread, which nicely answers my question about strike targets. Rather than get hung up on choosing a single strike price, the spread lets me span the entire range I was targeting (say 30% -...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Hey all, I’ve been enjoying this thread with great interest for the past few weeks, and I don’t think I have been on TMC so obsessively since late 2012, when we were all going bonkers over seeing any new pictures or videos of everyone’s newly delivered Model S, in all their glorious original...

    Simply put, object consistency should NOT be a concept restricted to human intelligence. Agree 100%.

    This is exactly the kind of bet I would like to make, understanding that you probably need to make quite a few of these before you hit the lottery ticket day like .07 to $3 or $4. But I’m scared to death of buying a hundred or even ten contracts and having it expire ITM without being able to...

    I sold a share of BRK-A for about 120K in 2012 and bought TSLA with the proceeds. BRK-A has tripled in value since then. TSLA was at 28 or so...

    Air Spring Suspension Leak

    Could that sound also be your control arms? I have had my lower fronts replaced twice now, probable due to corrosion. And the knuckle joints replaced once as well.

    I recall this happening once to ORCL stock decades ago...one “glitch” managed to tank the whole stock. Always suspected it was a manipulation. [Edit: this is in reference to the glitch trade at 428 captured above, I don’t know what happened to my thread quote]

    Options trading strategy/advice

    Thanks for pointing this out. What happens in this case? Say you bought a large number of long calls that you couldn’t possibly exercise, which go deep ITM...a huge winner...but you can’t find a buyer for your sell to close order. You call your broker to tell them not to automatically...
