    What about you, greedynoob, did you get back in today?

    Well, in case you haven’t, I PM’d Adam Christianson (TMO webmaster) on your behalf.

    Where are you seeing it, for our reference?  Mac?  iOS devices too?  Which browser if Mac?

    Constantly from my iPad - it sux - very frustrating !

    Rosie?  Is that you?  Or has an AdBot? taken over?

    Weird day. 

    Oh and now AMZN is approaching 230.  Now that’s just great.

    tis me, Mav,  I just got the reply formatted wrong!

    here, I’ll try again.

    Well Adam, you know what to do.  I’m not getting bombarded since I’m lucky I guess, but others are.

    In the meantime, say goodbye to more than a few AFBers.

    Sorry, but this is very disappointing.  Video pop-ups are one thing.  Subjecting forum contributors to ads between posts is a whole ‘nother kettle of fish.

    AAPL now hovering around 605?  The hell…?

    Don’t hit the trade button, Mav!  DON’T!

    BAD MAV!  BAD!

    Did you PM Adam Christianson yet?

    Screenshot would be immensely helpful.

    Yet to see any pop-ups.  But hey, take a break for a few days in the meantime.  Or otherwise, happy trails or something.

    Do you really think Adam C. is unaware of these?  Is a teenager unaware of Kim Kardashian’s cleavage?

    Actually Mercel - I think you are on the opposite part of the body - according to my son!

    Funny.  She’s got junk in the trunk.  Ok, both sides then.

    Looks like those 700 or so 605’s were consequential after all…

    (11,889 calls to 11,139 puts).

    I just closed out some 600/605’s before we went below 605…mitigated some of the disaster this month.

    How is this criminal rigging allowed week after week and month after month is beyond me incredibly frustrating at this point.

    Just bought with what little I had left to deploy.  Okay, AAPL Earnings, work your magic!

    What about you, greedynoob, did you get back in today?

    Yes, some higher than I should have earlier on. Then I looked at what prices, given current volatility & theta, would be if AAPL tanked all the way down to 605, and put in limit orders. They all filled (at around 607, surprisingly) and I’m happy with those prices.

    So I took a look at theta & pricing this AM, and found that today’s 610 would be Monday’s 620—that was after I bought in at prices I should have avoided. Anyway, my bottom line is about 640 day after. Below that I get killed pretty quickly, above it I start to do well quickly.

    So my “planned for” day-after scenario is earnings at about $12, PE of 14.5, IV dropping 15% over night. That’s a decent profit. Anything better than that, ZOOOM! On the low end, any one of: earnings about $11, PE of 14, or IV collapsing to historic lows, I come out having done a lot of work for a bit of a loss. Earnings of $10.30 and PE of 13, and oh, that would hurt…

    What it comes down to for me is this:

    WS consensus: $10.32

    vs:

    Patrick Smellie: $12.51
    Andy Zaky: $12.46
    Horace Dediu: $11.54
    Luke Kittel: $12.30
    Alexis Cabot: $12.70
    Daniel Tello: $12.16
    Turley Muller: $12.12

    Those all being people with a good track record of calling AAPL. (And I note Gregg Thurman is at $12.56. In my short time here, I’ve noticed he seems pretty good at calling things.)

    Looks like pin is at 605 after all.

    Have a good week-end, and let’s hope for better luck next week.

    I’m not getting any such thing at all—leads me to suspect a bug rather than intended behavior.

    Whew.  Good thing I didn’t buy any last-minute AAPL calls today.  (But I might as well have, given how my AMZN BPS play is doing.)

    The game is rigged, for now.  604.30 is a total BS close.  Hang in there, everyone.

    Whoa!

    Really?

    Btw, any pop-up issues iPad?  Seems some of our (for the moment) active AFBers are suffering badly from audio/video popups.
