    Hi All Wanted a quick answer regarding shipping of our Model 3 cross-country. It will take >6 days and they are picking up tomorrow morning, so trying to figure out best way to do this. Leave sentry mode on or off? Valet mode? Anything else to ensure safety and security of the car?

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

    I am glad Elon tweeted what he did. It brought out the true colors of the PIF fund who refused to confirm that they were in talks with Tesla. They had no problem making Elon looks like a liar - maybe they thought that gave them more leverage. Not the type of people who can be trusted as...

    How long ago was the original tweet talking about Bill’s short position in Tesla? Was that back in 2020? Just curious and want to guesstimate how much money he has lost on this short so far.

    Closed the put spreads +p770/-p970 expiring 22Apr in taxable account for 80% profit at market open yesterday. But as the market dropped decided not to risk waiting further and rolled out the +p975/-p1075 in IRA expiring 20May out to September for tiny credit. With the markets the way they are...

    Rob Maurer was asking for any one with legal knowledge to let him know if there is a way from blocking them from using his video. They did not ask for permission, so unsure if they can use his YouTube videos in this way.

    Nice of you to ask - just been extremely busy at work and didn't have the time to post, although I have been scanning this thread regularly.

    Haven't posted here in a while - decided to reply because of experience in this and because some of the responses annoyed me. Contracts split exactly same way as shares. Last time TSLA split 1:5 - every 1 share became 5 shares @ 1/5 the SP. For options, each contract became 5 contracts at...

    Closed out all my BPSs for 11/26 as well as for 12/03 early this morning- all were over 80% profit. I usually set GTC closing orders for about 80-85% profit, so they all triggered on the way up to 1200! But, I completely missed the dip to open new positions. So now, I have nothing open and have...

    Agree with this sentiment. This is the main reason why I have made the decision not to sell any CCs or BCS at this time. I have only tried selling BCSs twice to combine with my BPSs as an IC. However, each time I tried the BCS, the stock decided to spike up requiring me to scramble to manage...

    The exception being when you are doing a roll out of desperation - like last week Tuesday when I had a bunch of +p960/-p1060 spreads. With the stock price dropping fast and the short let already ITM, the long leg also was significantly high premium. My learning from last week: when doing...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Not sure I agree with this part, Maybe you can explain a little more. I would think if the stock is going up then covered calls are highly risky. Similarly if you think the stock is going down then BPS would be risky

    How do you manage the holy spreadsheets in situations like last week when all I did was roll out the positions to a later date?

    I don’t understand what people complain so much about with respect to service. With our two Teslas, first of all we have never really needed much service.

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    Thanks everyone for the ‘not advice’. I decided that rolling out now is probably for the best. So rolled out the -p1060 down to -p1010 or -p1020 still keeping the spread at a 100. The BPS with -p995/p795 - just rolled those out at same strikes but 2 weeks out. I believe that 1000 is the floor...

    You guys are actually thinking that a 10% drop is possible? I just don't understand why everyone is freaking out so much.
