Hey you need to post more coherently, you are incoherent now so general public can understand what you have done/ planning to do. You want folks to understand your brilliance make it possible.

Take that RIG put option play of yours. I assume you bought and sold on the same date March $55 puts on Thursday when RIG was >60 for something around $1.9 a put.

On Friday the stock dropped $2, and your puts went up temporarily to 2.70. So you sold them for $0.7 gain minus the commision both ways.

Did I get it right above?

If so why didn't you wait till Monday when your puts went up another 0.8 to $3.50? Would double your profit.

DO you expect the market to rally today? Do you think shorting FAZ is a good idea?

BOTD - what level of stock price do you target on NEM?

I started my SRS positions at average of $70 now.

Starting FAZ as well near the buzzer

for the RIG trade.

we added the march 55s with RIG above $60, we gave our logic and buy target for the puts. saying that RIG up 25% YTD we wanted to add puts above $60. we did.

then we sold MONDAY when rig hit $55. BIG WINNNNER!

not sure what you are asking exactly, but thats how the trade went. (good thing we sold yesterday, eh?)

.... sorry about our randomness and humor. i understand my "verbiage" can be a bit tough to decipher. we'll try to make our RECO's more obvious going forward.
