    I was thinking about the unwinding the wave comments, there are not enough transportation vehicles to handle the wave. So when Tesla gets to steady state, at some point the same issue of not enough vehicles (ships, trains, trucks, etc) will be reached in steady state. My question is, how far...

    I could swear I have heard some of these proposals before. Are they able to resubmit offer their proposals have been rejected? Wish my bingo card had “dozed off during the proposals”

    I would love to see anyone do it in 10 minutes. I’ve been an electrician for 15 years and it takes me 1.5 hours for the easy ones. The complicated ones can get into 3 hours if wires need to be spliced and extra bars installed. The main panel also often need to be moved off of the service...

    Can you give an example of this? I’m trying to wrap my head around rolling back and down with out a debit. I have a set of September 1100/-1200 puts that I’d like to get freed up but think I am stuck unless we go to 1300+. I rolled them out the other week when we bottomed on that Tuesday...

    I’m also concerned about Elon’s Master Plan part 3. I know it’s going to be fantastic, however I personally feel it will be heavily weighted toward AI and the robot. This, I don’t think the market will understand and could potentially give us another Q1 Earnings reaction.

    I agree. The thing is, we know this works. This week was the week the can was done being kicked down the road and ugh, it was brutal. The past two months have been gut wretching and I really wished I would have kicked stuff out another month to April, I think that would have saved some of my...

    I’m just finishing up a vacation and moved everything out so I wouldn’t have to mess with trades this past week. It was weird not knowing what the market was doing all day long. It also made me think about doing something like you mentioned above. I was looking at some bps if I sell 2 months...

    Yea I normally do that, however this series of rolls started from a position I opened 11/30 last year. Started as 845/-1045. Today I did my 9th roll on them for a $1 debit and doubled the contracts and made them -945/845’s for 3/11. I’m leaving for vacation next weekend and don’t want to have...

    Even now it’s showing a midpoint of $2.50 debit. When the bid is higher than the ask, then I can get a credit.

    Yea just looking at them it does, my spread sheet said I should have been able to roll for $2 credit, couldn’t even get them filled for even. I ran into this two weeks ago with some $300 wide spreads I had too. If tomorrow am is the same, I’ll look at kicking them out to 2/25. (EDIT: I mean...

    Does anyone have any insight on why I’m having problems rolling my BPS -995/795’s out each week for even or a small credit despite us being $30 over the mid point? Even near the highs today I was still looking at a $2 debit to roll them out.

    Why are people widening their spreads? I’m narrowing mine to lower the short leg significantly and raising the long leg a few strikes. I’ve found I can do this and it’s only slightly raising the mid point. I understand that max loss can happen faster this way, however the stuff I have done...

    Phew. Survived another week. I was having problems earlier in the week rolling some BPS -1030/730 spreads for credit when we were well above their mid point. This caused me to look into doubling contracts and halving spread size. I calculated the credits I took earlier. And figured what I...

    I’d like to close my -1020’s and -1030’s with profit today. At this point I’d even settle for break even.

    It has everything to do with your account balance. I used to do day trading quite a bit and am familiar with the rules. See link below. https://tlc.thinkorswim.com/center/faq/Most-Common-Questions#q_04

    In my experience it is only for that day. You have to bring you account value back above 25k. So if I currently have 5 day trades and my account drops below 25k today. I need to deposit money to bring it back up to 25k. If tomorrow all 5 of those day trades have hit their 5 day and clear, I’m...

    You don’t have to worry about daytrader status unless your account falls under $25k for that day. If you maintain a balance over that in a full margin account don’t worry about those messages. With 10-20x 200 pt spreads, you don’t need to be concerned with the smart trading rules, unless there...

    I think we should be focusing on the true American EV Leader, GM with their meeting with Ford and POTUS tonight. That is what really should be in the news and the target of our discussions for where EV’s are headed.

    Those calculations are never correct. I take the previous credit received, subtract .01 or .02 depending on how many contracts there are to remove the fees. And add that value to my new position plus or minus the new transaction price. So if I did a debit roll for $1, I subtract that from the...

    I rolled everything that had a mid point at or below todays prices. Got small credits. One I paid .50 to roll it out. I went for max strike improvement. Only got about 10 on most of them. I still have almost half of my bps expiring this week that had higher midpoints. The little rally at the...

    Until the next time something irrational happens with the market. However, another thing is if you do go this route, you don’t have to hold the 2024 spread until expiration. If you track your break even with it. Just get back to that point and close it out and you are back to the full freedom...

    Could you let us know what time of day they did that? I rolled some 880/-1040s to next week 860/-1040s with Fidelity today at 1:25 eastern. And some 900/-1060s to 840/-1060s at 1:15 in another fidelity account. I would have thought these would have gotten called away before yours if...
