    Troll? It’s not my fault I’m telling the truth about Gigapress start and Elon decided to pump a creepy grocery carrying robot instead. If you are Elon how the hell do you not slam dunk the cyberteuck gigapress start next month? Meanwhile Optimus just staring at me as I take a shower...

    It's not news of imminent delivery of CT,. it is only what I described, except to say that they are apparently planning more than just seeing if the machinery works.... they are getting ready to crank apparently.... I think it's relevant insofar as they are aggressively moving on it much more...

    Good point, this week it’s taught me a bit about how much money Is being held in the stock by short term traders. In other words, how much cushion is there in the stock for a big macro dip (evergrande, etc)…. I suppose another way of thinking of this is how to identify the accumulation prices...

    He should do another twitter poll about how quickly to sell the remaining shares. That would be swell of him.

    i don’t know where we land tomorrow, but I do believe tomorrow will clarify exactly how powerful the gamma squeeze was in the stock price ascending. I’m wrong two or three times a day…. But I kind of think this will be similar to Elon’s tweets about Bitcoin. If price dives, there will be a...

    Twitter TSLA describing Elon’s use of the Twitter poll reminds me of the Life of Brian scene where he is encouraging them all to think for themselves.

    Sadly, I think his twitter poll is not about putting his agenda to the people, but rather comes off a bit more like the dude from the movie “gladiator”. Most people in America aren’t like, “wow, how down to earth that he is asking if he should pay taxes!” Tom Brady doesn’t sit at a dive...

    Hey don’t tell me what to not tell Elon not to do with his shares! I have a complex plan for his share selling…. Involving arbitrage and an offshore tax shelter…. If I’m not allowed to tell him what to do…. Then you aren’t allowed to tell me what not to tell him what not to do!

    Yeah, but it’s not the same, you don’t have to love it or leave it. Regardless, this was just sort of stupid of Elon. Sometimes he does stupid stuff. I do stupid stuff like 30 times a day. He does stupid stuff like once every 30 days. That’s not a bad record. I am envious of that...

    Thank you for saying this. It’s getting frustrating read Tesla fans twist themselves in knots trying to make Elon’s move into a brilliant act of genius…. There is no one I respect and admire more than Elon Musk…. But this was stupid, not genius, and even if it is some brilliant “4...

    Gary is annoyed. He’s bad at hiding it. He knows it’s not about Elon selling his shares, it’s about unforced errors for no reason. At best, Elon he’s playing 4d chess on shorts and doesn’t care about collateral damage, at worst it’s an “SEC violation” we have to roll our eyes at for 12...

    But by buying shares, they are effectively delta hedged no? wouldn't more call buyers have to cause them to delta hedge more? If the price goes up, they will have to Gamma Hedge I suppose.... Just trying to understand the concept.

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Curious if anyone here has any thoughts on this from a devil's advocate point of view. It certainly seems that people were hanging back until Jpowell was done, and that a monstrous amount of delta hedging occurred at the end of the day.... But now that it's hedged fully by most market makers...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Actually, perhaps I should clarify, that I mean something different by "split" roll. I may be using wrong term. I am advocating taking a bad BPS or BCS and converting it into a condor (or butterly if really far from the money), therefore not increasing margin, risk or leverage. You are...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Split roll is best if patient it seems. Flip split is very intriguing too. Depending how far from the money you are. If far enough away, you can skip the part of making it a condor and just sell itm butterfly never taking loss. Then as stock price gets closer, convert to condors until it...

    This is fascinating time, we have WSB meme stock euphoria combined with the obsessive diehard TSLA investor, I’m not sure us TSLA Uberbulls should consider ourselves allies with WSB. And it’s fascinating that people like Leo are telegraphing their buys to fuel gamma further. I’m biased, I...

    That means he’s tapped out actually, he’s counting on increase in portfolio to keep leveraging up. He may get there but I don’t see him creating the massive gamma he did these past 2 weeks unless he buys all at once in similar fashion?

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    It’s very hard to know how a stock will behave during violent upswing… Gary seems to think that PMs start trimming positions at 1200. But that doesn’t mean they’d sell all of their position. Still, it should create some resistance unless Leo keeps buying.

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I think it would be interesting to quantify these large moves over the same timeframe we’ve seen this last 9 days. Because that puts it in a totally different light. We’ve seen 310+ dollars in 8 days which is problematic for sustained rise given that a lot of the rise ahead of earnings was...

    Be very very careful doing this, I got burned badly closing the IC on front week and then opening a new position. Try to open the new position first before shutting the old one down. Have enough in reserve to do that and it shouldn’t be a problem. I also plan to start earlier next week.

    Did you calculate what you would have had if you sold ATM puts each week until you got your shares back? Opportunity cost is a real thing. I would be a trillionaire if I would have bought TSLA stock instead of a $167,000 P100D 5 years ago; but the joy I’ve experienced from that vehicle was...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    It’s going to be very interesting tomorrow. I think the fact that “only” 25 million shares changing hands today means the institutional buying is over and retail FOMO is driving this surge. If the stock doesn’t achieve escape velocity in the morning, I expect a pretty rapid sell off until...

    Which do we break first? 1200 or 1000? Make a guess.... I dare you. My short term prediction, I think tomorrow we ATH on opening surge, but close at 1067. We are currenty in meme mode on this stock. Next week I see a opening salvo early in the week followed by drop to 1000...

    PSA- Be careful rolling. I lost 90k last week by fat fingering a roll. Which blew a month of profit in an instant. As much as people tell you that rolling a position is a separate discrete action... this is not quite true. I spent hours the previous weekend mapping the planned roll...

    well if it is any consolation, I look forward to the day I can experience that sort of cowardice with my portfolio.... it means I've grown it nicely.... until then, I'll keep learning to be more patient, less brave and less stupid. btw.... cowardice is a compliment in case my humor sucks as bad...

    For those who follow my crappy predictions, I figure I’d share some price research that best mirrors the current run up. Basically the way things have evolved around earnings, the last few days most closely model January 2020. If this holds to be true, we’d see gap up tomorrow but then...

    So, as I mentioned earlier, last friday, I placed a very aggressive position, 940/1000; but kept 1/2 account in reserve (that's a lot of reserve for my daredevil self). Today, as it was going against me, I bought 950 longs on the way up while I thought about my strategy.... and sold them...

    Flip roll or split roll may be in my future with my 940/1000…. I left plenty of cash in reserve this time, but I need to not botch execution …. Any tips? It’s early in the week and Elon could sell his shares this week. Volatility abounds

    Verily I say unto you, there will be a big beat…. It will be impressive. Monday and Tuesday next week will be glorious. But the Oracle has spoken that blood stained candles will fall as hedge funds sell the news, defying the logic of the nobles on the main investment thread. “824” cries...
