$WKHS To the people making fun of the people that got burned, consider this: I purchased a large amount of options for today. I was completely responsible and hedged my bets with put options, to the extent that if the contract didn't happen and my long calls became worthless, I would have been reimbursed when the bears came knocking. Good right? Wrong, within 45 seconds, the market makers deflated all options on both sides. My calls became worthless, my puts that were covering them were worth 20% of what I paid for them. It's heartbreaking to do what you think you need to do and have the market makers find some new way to fuck you that you didn't even know existed.
