Only true if all S&P names drop the same percentage. If TSLA drops more relative to other names, index funds will have to sell some TSLA at the next rebalance. Similarly, if TSLA drops less relative to other names, they will have to buy more TSLA.
Thanks. Does anyone know where to find this 'Order Flow Distribution' information (or something similar) in ThinkOrSwim?A lot more large orders

I don't believe it would help them to do that. They are selling to investment firms which are "stockholders of record". I don't know if you can obtain that status without having the actual shares in your hot little hands. So all it would do is move the spike (if any) a couple of days. I also don't think even the SEC could look the other way if they did this.
I would congratulate you but the return for holding TSLA through that same period (without compounding) averages 2.82% per day.
The other thing I know is the traders that have an unusually good run tend to post their results and the traders who blew it tend to slink off into the shadows without letting us know about their personal disasters.
some people really have problems here....SMH
Not trading at all - am HODL'ing. The 3% stuff was a light-hearted response to @Lycanthrope Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the 2019-2020 Investors' Roundtable following which I decided to just see how it went...
FWIW: the JAN15'21 720C I bought on S&P announcement is currently sitting at 8X. A couple of days ago I sold 20% of the position when it was 10X briefly. I have GTC order in for half of the remaining position at 10X and the rest at 20X, just in case I miss something.
The DEC31'21 700C I bought a couple of days later is barely breaking even right now. I'll sell this one on gut feeling as it was a lottery call only.
Do I need to be doing somethng with my Fidelity IRA account to make sure contracts aren't executed before I want? Keep hearing these posts about random executions by brokers.
Nope. They won't have to sell TSLA to reduce their percentage because the drop in the stock price has already reduced their percentage the exact amount needed.
Depends on employers I think.Oh yes you can trade options in BL account. If not for that I'd be missing a digit in my account total figure.
Well I put in a limit on close order at ~$1500 just in case we get a crazy closing cross. And bought two $1000 calls at $.10 so I dont lose my shares if it executes. I don’t think either will execute, but its a cheap thrill to be part of the action.
