    Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Discussion Thread

    I only checked gemini. Not enough for me to convert and/or store anything there. I'm just going to stick to my plan of buying when people are no longer talking about crypto and taking profits when everyone bragging about how much they're making. I think we'll keep "stair stepping" lower ($40k...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I prefer to sell a lot of narrow spreads vs wide because I focus on the premium collected to dollars at risk in a max loss situation. edit: SPY put spread for example right now: 360/370: 1.96 369/370: .32 Closed everything for a few % profit (edit: 8%) because I luckily sold more puts and...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Boring day and want something to do so I sold some 7/15 765/770 and 795/800 call spreads on the up move and some 695/700 put spreads a couple mins ago. Probably going to get out of all by the end of the day. Still an Iron Condor when sold at different times? A lot of my positions turn into ICs...

    The "B" in BCS/BPS doesn't tell us anything btw. Unless I'm missing something that everyone here already knows... edit: now that I think of it, I never see it written that way anywhere else. I guess it's safe to assume bull but why don't you guys say short or long?

    You also need dates but if that really is daily, he’s making a killing! I’m actually going to check it out now. I think it’d be worth allocating a small amount. Edit: To anyone reading, make sure to read every word of the terms and conditions. Withdrawal limits, if you need to leave it in for a...

    You haven't looked into it yourself? I don't know which coin he's earning interest on but I doubt he's making 1.5% interest daily. Edit: maybe 1.5% apy paid daily. And I don't agree with his statement about there being no risk. Everything has some degree of risk. I don't trust exchanges enough...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I'm more surprised reading the posts from people who ARE getting the timing right. I don't contribute much because I'd rather stay on topic but the TSLA moves are way too big and unpredictable for me in this bear market. I was drawn to this thread a year ago because the majority of my income was...

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

    Yep. I look at these news/announcement/meeting days the same as earnings when it comes to trying to guess the impact the actual information will have on the market. Yeah, we'll get some increased vol/movement but good luck betting on the direction.

    I'm still not convinced any of this is helpful... tracking max pain, MMs, etc. Oh wow, it says TSLA will close below 990... yeah, we know. I'd be interested to see some backtesting

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    It's been mostly QQQ and SPY lately. I should have specified spreads. ICs I guess (are they "proper ICs" when sold at different times?) but I never open both sides at the same time, sell puts in the down move and calls when they rally. About .2 delta short leg. edit: been buying long puts when...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I usually stay away from earnings trades because I feel like the moves are always 50/50 up or down regardless of results. I prefer to sell based off charts/big moves and sell into strength. edit: and sell a lot of index options when Vol is high. Not sure what you mean by suckered in... Vol is...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I bought more stock at open @Zhelko Dimic Do you usually suggest selling puts so deep in the money (1000)? Honestly never considered it but the return on risk actually looks good compared to getting half the premium for something like an 800. 1000 giving you ~60% higher max return on risk, ~15%...

    I get that a couple won't wipe him out. If you can't tell, I'm pretty bearish now and that's why I feel strongly about using leverage in a market like this. Also not a fan of sitting on unrealized losses for an extended period of time. I still plan to buy more shares but I also bought far OTM...

    No, I haven't read your other posts. I'm just pointing out the increased potential for unrealized/realized losses over time, not a margin call specifically. I obviously don't know what his portfolio looks like but based on his income, I'm assuming he got in early in TSLA and it makes up a...

    Might as well rack up margin debt because TSLA only goes up, right? New people should see everyone's P&L before taking advice.

    @john tanglewoo I just made an account here and they have some good IV info. Not sure if you can set alerts for IV moves. Glad you asked the question because it made me realize a lot of what I do is mostly off gut feeling.. I need to look into the data more often...

    RIVN and AMD most recently. Before that it was been when Vol spikes QQQ, SPY, IWM about 30-45 days out. I should have looked at my account first because a lot I have currently are call spreads now that I look at it. I don't document the trades and already closed the majority of the put spreads...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Are you looking at the same price, or delta? I honestly just follow VIX daily because I sell puts and calls (single options and spreads) on a lot of stocks. Your brokerage should have an IV column for the stock/options for you to add and refer to. I know this is off topic but I like selling put...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Yeah in my experience, any reactionary trade that seems obvious because of news (bullish bet in this case) is usually the wrong play. It could work but there's a better chance of it going against you rapidly vs normal times so like you, I just stay away. edit: when I say trade/bet, I'm talking...
