Can I tag a long and shoot my picks even if I haven't hypothetically bought them? I wanted to wait until this semester was over with and be able to start when I could devote more time to this as a beginner.

Friday 21 2008
Picked 2 Citigroup DEC 2.50 Call options @ 2.00
I thought to myself 4.00 would have been good to get out with a nice profit and no stress of holding onto to such a shaky stock right now.
Would have sold Monday when those options were 4.00 for a good twenty minutes, for a 400 dollar profit. Not a bad hour.

Monday 24 2008
I did some chart reading and saw that there was more room for AMZN to go down and looked at the puts for DEC.
Picked 1 DEC 45.00 put option for 5.00
Fast forward to Tuesday 25 2008
The market hasn't made that reversal that we all know is coming and AMZN puts are already climbing. They are now 5.75 and should climb higher. Should be very interesting to see what this price does when the market tanks again.

the only problem with your post is its not in real time. you posted a trade from friday on citigroup nonetheless. you 2nd post about amazon is ok but this thread is for REAL- Time trades. trades being done today, right now.

real time trades would be your amzn puts at todays price of 5.75 not saying you bought them yesterday. not trying to give you a hard time but some people on here want to see real results in real time.

My post i wrote i bought FNM yesterday if i were to post today i bought it after a 50% gain no one would believe I actually bought it monday see my point ?

Shaping up to be a crappy day on Wall Street....

Would seriously be watching the candles of DXD at 3pm today.....provides 2:1 leverage for riding a few percent on a late-in-the-day selloff.

OK you asked for it!!!!

Bought 600 QQQQ June 09 $16 PUTS Today @ .75. For anyone who doubts that, just check the volume today on those options.  600 of those are MINE!!

This IS NOT the position I wrote about earlier.  That position was closed out at a profit.

So WHY did I buy these options?????

Well...I feel as though our economy will get AS BAD as our REAL ESTATE market did.  If you think about this it makes COMMON SENSE.
How can the entire PLANET have a HISTORIC real estate CRASH and it NOT effect the general economy.  IT WILL....and like real estate, it will be FAR worse than almost ANYONE expects.  GDP numbers sucked today and job losses are going to be HUGE!!  These rallies we are having are the  dieing gasps of a market headed LOWER.......MUCH LOWER...
At one time I would enter a position like this and just STAY IN IT!!
I've learned that it is far easier to avoid the ups and downs and just snipe at these positions taking chunks here and there. 

The June 09's give me TIME to be WRONG......We COULD have a BIGTIME rally over the next month....Because these options don't expire
for over 7 months it gives me a CUSHION.  I don't need this market to CRASH inorder to make money here.  A decent sell off and I'm out!!!

MAKE A NOTE.........Take a look at how far those June 09 $16's are down TODAY.......They are down .34 to .75    If we get a GIVE BACK sell off of that 900 point run up we had over the last 2 days, these options will be back over 1.00.

Great! The market certainly has a much larger downside to it than most are talking about, but they all know it. Look how long it took for people to begin recognizing a recession in the future. With that said, I'm expecting a continuous decline over the next 6 months. After Christmas, people won't have an obligation to spend or travel much. The holidays always lift people up and almost cause them to forget about all of their problems. Come next year will be very sobering for most.
