    Big tech is down 4-5% respectively. It could possibly be the end of this rally.

    Hopium got the best of you - again! I’m positioning exactly the opposite. Trying to roll the 135s weekly until they magically expire worthless or close to that and I can roll up for a credit.

    I understand that Max Pain data is to be taken with a pinch of salt, but I'm seeing a large spike of 120P's for Feb 17. Nothing in the surrounding weeks pops out this much and therefore could be relevant with short-term SP...?

    I'm with you @scubastevo80. Waiting for this rally to either solidify and get into short puts again, or a dead cat bounce over the next couple weeks and be able to recover my 135s should they not assign early... GLTA

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I believe so. I’m just not taking part in the ecstasy because a) of course I’m partially on the losing side this time (my leaps are very happy this week) b) we’ve had numerous run-ups last year only to hit new lows shortly after c) I don’t think the economy as a whole is doing much better...

    Wiki Selling TSLA Options - Be the House

    I agree with you, we have our history hahaha I'll try to roll for $1 a week - that covers all family expenses. If the roll dips below $1, then I'll most likely give up on shares and trail the SP with short puts until eventually I eat it that way. Worked pretty well in the past couple years...

    I'm with you. It's always these next great events that turn out to be nothingburgers at best, sometimes like you pointed out, a fair drop and we all stand like what...?! Hence why I'm holding the -135c's for 1/27, which of course has to be mitigated tomorrow, but I'm looking to just even roll...

    I guess I'm putting on my put selling hat soon as I'm short 135 calls against all my shares this week. Will wait until Friday and see if I can roll to 140s 2 weeks out, and if not, I'll probably let them exercise these 135s if they need be. I'll also be able to take the losses from the shares...

    A standard Employee Purchase Plan (ESPP) in the US enables that you can contribute through every paycheck (max ~5-10% of paycheck) over a 6-mth period. Once the purchase period is ending, the plan operator checks whether the first or last day of the period has a lower SP, deducts a percentage...

    Goes without saying that one should NEVER exchange their shares to long call options expiring a month out! VERY ballsy move. To 2-year out LEAPs, sure, one can go through a wash sale period with relatively low risk. Still magnified risk compared to shares. Best I see is to sell calls until...

    I think your logic is correct, the small amount of the 2nd wash sale will be assigned to this buy. The rest will be considered a regular loss.

    Got FSD Beta 10.8 finally. Seems it’s a fairly wide release (2021.44.25.6). Does this mean that Tesla can recognize a larger revenue in 2021?

    The fact that you’re still with us shows that your risk management was stress tested and stood up to such test. Not everybody’s did. I learned a lot over these past days and will get to continue on the journey also. Good luck…

    Roll it to next week, collect premium. Rinse and repeat until it expires worthless and you keep the premium.

    Wish e-trade had a margin calculator that lets you simulate a share price... But in a nutshell, I verify every move with the margin calculator and make sure that it meets my rule for margin excess. That rule keeps getting more and more conservative, now that I'm managing a fairly large portfolio.

    Glad you have recovered. Exactly the situation I'm trying to avoid, while still selling enough puts weekly to keep income flowing / account growing... As for myself, I'm holding -15 x 1130p into next week with triple the margin excess I used to have, so not feeling very nervous.. How do you...

    Ouch that sounds like an uncomfortable situation. How bad was it and how did you recover, may I ask?
