YOLO (0.5 shares)! Goog will continue to do well - good tech, they're crushing with search, chrome, youtube, etc. Deepmind should continue to be an interesting development. Gcloud is kind of meh. Gsuite is good. Got in when there was a ton of FUD about their "culture" and "AI destroying search" -- who the fuck cares about their culture when they print billions every quarter Can't go wrong going Long NVDA (hardware), Goog (internet) and msft (software / enterprise). AMZN still owns cloud w/ AWS though. If the market dips I'm going long and hard into all 3 - these companies aren't going away anytime soon. And I doubt they get replaced / supplanted anytime soon. Though with a market correction the advertising budgets will get slashed so their earnings will get hurt. "AI" replacing search is such bullshit because the companies doing search are the only ones that can reasonable create the applications for AI lol.

Thanks for your submission! To keep things interesting, we want to see big gains and big losses! So we've set the following thresholds for Gain, Loss, and YOLO flaired posts: * YOLO posts must be a minimum of $10,000 of options or $25,000 of shares and recently opened. * Gain / Loss posts must show realized gains or losses of more than $2,500 for options or $5,000 for shares. We want to see the actual trade. What you got in at, what you sold at. Then tell us why you did it. Give us the story of why you're a fucking genius (or idiot). This is what a great post looks like: [$17.2K Gain on AMZN](https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets/comments/wb5m4o/not_too_shabby_172k_gain_amzn/) - OP described his gain in the title, has a clear screenshot showing both the entry and exit, meaning his gains were locked in, and they explained their reasoning in the comments and what they learned. All around a great post! Here are examples of what could get your post removed: * [$300,000 SDC Loss. Still not selling](https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets/comments/wpm9am/over_300000_unrealized_loss_sdc_not_selling/) - Even though this is a tremendous loss and something worth posting about, **the position hasn't been closed yet**. Here are examples of amazing posts which could have been even better: * [$75,000 DDOG Loss.](https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets/comments/unsrey/loss_porn_ddog_call/) - This is a great post and one that won't get removed. However, the OP could have talked about *why* they entered the position in the first place, what their target price was, and what went wrong. OP didn't stick around in the comments to answer any questions. * [$1.1MM Loss, No details](https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets/comments/lxm6wt/hold_me_1100000_loss/) - OP simply posted a screenshot of their overall portfolio balance. It's definitely a big loss, but it's not that interesting without OP talking about what trades they were in and why. OP didn't answer most questions in the comments which left many readers speculating on what happened. --- All that being said, we are here to help. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to post to our community. We have to balance this with making the subreddit interesting for our readers. If you need some guidance, don't hesitate to [reach out to modmail](https://old.reddit.com/message/compose/?to=/r/wallstreetbets) and we'll give you some pointers!

No comment. There is likely a retracement on Monday as last week’s selloff was too steep by a day and then some PCE euphoria on Friday. If you get a pop post/pre market and want to close some exposure in your options, you can sell short AMZN shares. Other than those points, it’s up to you whether you want to stay in or get out.

I still believe AMZN will bounce back and upward to new ATH after proving the higher earnings growth trend is legit with also good forward guidance

Mentions:#AMZN

Yeah most of time I don't see many other rationales behind it other than just being cheaper than at or in. Which I get the appeal of sure, but if I'm making a directional play, ATM or ITM that supports my game plan is just better imo. OTM low expiration just kinda baffles me a bit unless part of some kind of insurance I guess? I like opening a spread with my long ATM or ITM at my preferred entry and my short at the upper end of my expectations on the play. Like with AMZN I'd be looking to enter an ATM or ITM call at 175 if the price falls to/below $176 and selling a call at the 190. I don't expect it to break $190 anyway so I don't mind "capping" my upside to reduce my outlay for the ITM long. Also gives more room for error if it starts to go wrong. For Aug 16th exp that would be about 25 delta, $640 debit with $860 max profit. I'd cap my losses at about $200 otherwise sit back and watch. Could result in getting stopped out before a push like I'm sure many did on Apr 25th but gotta be disciplined with the risk management!

Mentions:#AMZN

Any chance AMZN gets back to $188-$190 this week?

Mentions:#AMZN

Depends on float IMO. AMZN has a large large float, retail does nothing to budge it. And the big money gets the news before we do.

Mentions:#AMZN

> For example, if a bunch of amzn calls with a strike price of 190 expire otm last Friday. Does it affect the sentiment or price of the underlying in any way? Friday's share volume was 32.2 million shares. Friday's option volume, counting *all* contracts (all expirations, all strikes) was 629,424. So roughly 50x **fewer* contracts traded vs. shares. And that's for all contracts, not just the 190 of one expiration. I can't look up the OI for contracts that already expired, but we can assume it's a tiny fraction of that 32.2 million shares traded that day. Just to work up a made-up example for that specific 190c, let's say it's 1 contract of OI per 100,000 shares of daily volume. Even if you covert the contracts to nominal 100 shares per contract, that's still just 0.1% of the daily volume of shares. So how much influence should the expiration of 0.1% of the daily volume have on the share price? To say nothing of the float size of AMZN, which is over 9 billion shares. Compared to the total float, a single 190 contract expiring is something like 0.000001% of the float. **TL;DR** - Options are a tiny portion of the overall share market, so they usually don't move the needle.

I don't quite understand what else you're trading off of, if not your own opinion. Just going off of market news or other people's opinions? Does that not still influence your opinion into making a trade? I'd rather trade off the level of confidence I have in my own opinions, based on what I'm seeing on the charts. If I don't have belief and confidence that my trade is going to work, based on what I'm seeing on the charts, why would I take it? Who else's opinion matters but my own? I can see clear resistance for AMZN at $190. I'm not going to go long on AMZN in the middle of a channel into, *what is in my opinion*, a clear resistance level. That is my opinion, and going long currently would not fill me with confidence. I would be stressing and trying to micromanage it like OP is. That is not something I'd be comfortable with and is the kind of trade that would make me panic sell once it's in the red.

Mentions:#AMZN

Yes, essentially. Turning his naked calls into a spread. OP already has the long legs at $190. Selling calls at $200 just means they'd cover a lot of their outlay and overall risk is reduced. If AMZN gets back to $190 but doesn't break above, they should be able to sell the $190 long calls and let the $200 short calls either expire or buy them back for peanuts close to expiry and make back most of the money, maybe even profit off it. Personally, that's what I'd be looking for. Selling $200 calls, watch the price action and look to cash out the longs if I see the price failing at $190. If earnings comes and the price shoots over $200 then of course they might get exercised on the short $200 calls, but they have the $190 long calls to cover, so it's no issue. If it AMZN trades sideways or even goes down more, then the $200 calls sold is just extra cash to cover the losses from the long calls. I have much less capital than OP but I'd still be looking at vertical spreads because it's just a simple way to reduce your outlay. It caps your upside but if risk management is something you care about, it's something to consider. If you're happy to dump $100k in naked calls then you better be happy with the potential large loss that comes with it, otherwise look to cover yourself in some way.

I hate to say this because I had I different opinion before but I think this CRWD ordeal has affected AMZN. My technical analysis says if it doesn’t hold her we could be going down to 174 region.

Mentions:#CRWD#AMZN

I have a couple of contracts with APPL (there's hope), one with TSM (Probably done) at the same expiration, and with my AMZN expiring 9/20. My opinion is this sell off is likely an overreaction. The geopolitical aspect is and has been a concern for a while. I think everyone is just freaking out because it's such a steep sell off. The gambling sub sure had a day. Looking at the chart, AMZN had a similar, sharp drop, and it came back out of it two weeks later. I bought them ATM, and I was either going to go for small percentage gains or sell the minute it looked like it was going sideways since I'm still new to this, and I just wanted to get a feel for trading options. I didn't expect two comments about the same geopolitical area to come out on the same week. Personally, I'm going to hold my APPL and AMZN, and likely try to salvage what I can from TSM. It's either going to recover or keep correcting, and I'm betting on the former. If not, then, lesson learned to diversify and manage risk better. NFA

Mentions:#TSM#AMZN

I trade risky plays that have higher win percentages. Remember, the name of the game is "Buy Low, Sell High" My strategy for daytrading options: Wait for the stock to make a move, don't try to predict it at market open. For example, if SPY is down for the day, I'll only look at Call options, and wait until both the option chart and underlying stock chart (SPY in this case) both look like they're going to rebound according to technicals. I found that looking at the option chart is very helpful, as it sometimes gives a more clear story. You'll need to practice with your indicators of choice, paper trade first. Long story short, wait for the stock to make a move, then trade the opposite direction. Of course, this isn't a perfect strategy, but for something like SPY, or any of the big names (AAPL, MSFT, META, AMZN, etc.), they almost always have a decent bounce on a red day. For swing trading options: Follow the big money. I first look at stocks that are down for the year. Reminder, we want to try our best to Buy Low Sell High. Then, I look at the options chain and look for a Call contract with larger Open Interest (OI) than the others. In ThinkOrSwim, it allows you to open the chart of your option contract of choice. Add the OpenInterest indicator and look at the yearly chart. It'll show where there are spikes of OpenInterest, and big, out of the ordinary spikes often indicate whales buying up contracts. If the OI spike was recent, and you're able to get in at around the same price as the when the spike happened, it's often a good indicator that a whale knows something's coming, and that the stock will climb. After finding the high OI contract, I usually buy the same strike price expiring 2 weeks to a month after that high OI contract. For example, if I notice a high OI spike for $PFE July 19 $30 Call, I'll buy the August 16 $30 Call. This way you give it more time to climb, slightly decreasing your risk. It also gives more wiggle room to pick up more contracts if they dip more. Always stick to options with close Bid/Ask spreads! Preferably 1 or 2 penny difference. I've been able to be profitable doing these. It does take practice recognizing these plays, but it's worth looking into imo.

I suggest you sell the AMZN calls and buy AAPL calls instead. Best free advice I have ever given.

Mentions:#AMZN#AAPL

Alright well 8/16 still has time, theta isn't eating you alive as its only around .14 so 14 bucks a day ain't shit on these cons, although they will bump up a small amount come Monday. I have traded AMZN cons before though and they are stubborn, but you may get a bounce to come test that 189 spot, which would make for an almost perfect head and shoulder pattern if it rejects it. You're in a bad spot but I don't think its the end of the world. the selloff last week was rough but I don't think we are totally in a free fall and support will come, a LOT of people have been waiting for the dips to get into positions similar to yours, so I think Monday and Tuesday could see some tech recovery. Those are just my thoughts though, so they aren't worth too much when it comes to the stock market.

Continuing the previous message. So, NOW what do you do? Let's look out on the horizon. Here's the link again to save you from scrolling back. [http://charts.gammaedge.us/8dfa138b/AMZN\_-1\_8dfa138b\_db\_history\_daily\_07\_20\_2024\_00\_46\_51.html](http://charts.gammaedge.us/8dfa138b/AMZN_-1_8dfa138b_db_history_daily_07_20_2024_00_46_51.html) As you hover, you see the dotted lines extend to the NEXT expiry: July 26. Red line < 0. LHP < 0. This means that in the LHP, which contains ITM calls and OTM puts, the puts outnumber the deltas of the ITM call deltas. They are in control. Green line almost railed near -1: This means that for the next week, in the RHP, which contains the ITM put delta and the OTM call delta, there is little OTM call delta to offset to the puts. There is no upside speculation to speak of, and more importantly, charm in the overhead is very heavy and is pushing the complex down. As the complex gets weighed down by ITM puts (as well as OTM puts), charm continues to grow in the overhead and this charm is NEGATIVE DELTA. This means our book gets shorter, the Dealer's book gets longer, and to hedge flat, they SELL those deltas back to 0. There is downward pressure on AMZN for the next week> (timeframe matters - you're dealing with options that have finite lifetime). Your TL;DR is that for the next week, life is going to suck for you, given Friday's structure. It can chance, AND IT WILL, but it's going to take something other than the current structure to save your tail. What about all that data to the right? Glad you asked. The data to the right in that figure shows the positioning into August 2, August 9th, and finally August 16th. The next two weeks do not look great from today (but we have no clue if price will go any direction - all we can do is read the structure that is in front of us TODAY). August 2 has a DB < 0 August 9th has a DB that is < 0, We note that we do see, at the current price level, some speculative puts that will grow in delta in this week, so there is a ray of sunshine. The monthly on August 16 jumps, which is good. AMZN could continue to fall. That's a different analysis. Luckily, with options, your risk is defined, but with a zillion calls, you may blow your account by next month. Note again: I have no clue what AMZN is going to do and this may all be irrelevant. I use this info - no need for you to do so. This being said, I would have have never done what you did because I manage risk and you have to yet learn this. Most learn this by blowing their account - hopefully things work out in your favor before you get a margin call or go broke. Learn how things work dude. Take your time. This is a marathon, not a sprint.

I think it's always good to step back and look at the bigger picture. Yep, you suck at risk management. Fix that. NOW. IDK what the fuck you're thinking but you're not on a path to success. Okay, with that out of my system, let me say one more thing: First of all, a disclaimer: I have no clue if AMZN is going up, down, or sideways. The answer is "YES". Let's objectively look at AMZN. IF you believe that the options "tail" wags the stock "dog", then I present the following: [https://imgur.com/4j5PQnt](https://imgur.com/4j5PQnt) This shows that notionally, at a 50 delta, there is 2.768x control of the underlying stock in options transactions. Put another way, when we place options trades, the Dealers have to respond, more than they do with simple stock, only because the tail is literally wagging the dog. The risk - "delta" - of the options complex creates movement in the underlying price, hence, we need to look at the structure of the underlying options complex and see how the market is positioned in context of Greeks. To do this, I rely on some data that I've posted here as an interactive link: [http://charts.gammaedge.us/8dfa138b/AMZN\_-1\_8dfa138b\_db\_history\_daily\_07\_20\_2024\_00\_46\_51.html](http://charts.gammaedge.us/8dfa138b/AMZN_-1_8dfa138b_db_history_daily_07_20_2024_00_46_51.html) This shows price and something called "Detla Balance". Basically, if there are a whole bunch of people/institutions betting that AMZN will go up, we'll see it in a DB that is > 0. Conversely, if we see that DB < 0, we lack upside speculation (which is what you want), and this suggests lower prices as people speculate with puts. The graphic at the link above is interactive. When you hover over prices, you get a value: Values > 0 are considered bullish Values < 0 are considered bearish There are 3 components here: 1) Blue DB: this is an oscillator that is designed to rail -1 to +1. It is comprised of the following two components: 2) Net Delta LHP Pct: The LHP, or "left hand plane", that area below spot price, has a moneyness associated with it. Here, calls are ITM (in the money) and puts are OTM (out of the money). OTM puts are speculative to the downside; the ITM calls were placed long ago when AMZN was in an uptrend. 3) Net Delta RHP Pct: The RHP, or "right hand plane", is that area ABOVE spot price, and it too has a moneyness associated with it. Here, calls are OTM (speculative) and puts are ITM (deltas are growing and these holders are most likely positive. Values above DB > 0 mean that OTM calls outnumber the ITM put deltas. This is good for price expansion. Values below DB < 0 mean that OTM puts outnumber the ITM call deltas. This is good for price contraction. If you hover over that link, yep, I can see where you got screwed if you placed your trades after July 16. July 16 EOD (end of day) was the last day DB was = 1, and both the RHP and LHP were still call dominated. July 17th EOD would have been your signal to exit. Yes, this would have sucked. That's trading. Know your exits BEFORE you enter the trade. July 18th EOD was a continuation day down. You're really hating life, and moreso, you're adding to a falling position where DB (downside put speculation is growing), and you're screwed. Dealers are SELLING AMZN to hedge flat, and you have no support. Price stabilized yesterday on July 19th and bounced. Too little, too late. The DB value is now -1, meaning, it's constituents are < 0. Puts are controlling the stock. Period. I need to post this - will continue in the adjoining message....

I never use stop losses but ill probably cut one loose if im down 40% or so on an option that is very far out. If im down this much that means by the time i catch up theta will have eaten me down so much that it will be pointless since I buy very far out in expiration. I try to go cash during earnings because of the volatility. If I do play earnings I play the ETFs associated with earnings (QQQ for big tech instead of buying options on google or meta in example). My big winner that I still remain optimistic about is META and AMZN. Both are money printing machines that aren't going anywhere anytime soon. AMZN P/E is pretty high but META is still very much reasonable at this price (P/E of 25-30 on Growth/Tech is considered fair value). Profit wise if I see 15-20% usually I take it. I've missed out on alot of gains if I let them run but I've also dodged some losses by being conservative. Never get greedy, keep slowly growing you're account, the money will come over time. Trust me.

If it moved in my favor in the next week or two, I would allow myself to add another $3800 for a total investment of $9500. So my max loss would be less than 1/10th of your max loss. Allocation is everything in options trading, my man. *Everything*. Options are too risky and volatile to be plonking down more than half your account on any single trade. ANY. My trading plan says no more than 3% of my account to open a trade, and no more than 5% by adding on later. I recommend you adopt a similar plan if you trade options in the future. I trade for a living, and my allocation rules are the #1 reason I'm earning a living and don't have a wiped out account. I don't know what AMZN is going to do but don't dump in a panic on Monday. You've got time. Take a deep breath and wait and see what happens next week.

AMZN will be back to 200 after earnings

Mentions:#AMZN

I've been in this situation before and sold calendars and diagonals along the way. As of Friday close the 08/02 $190 calls were selling around $5.00. This trade alone cuts your max loss from 110k to about 37k. This is the day after earnings though so I personally would sell 1 or 2 strikes out and maybe wait for IV to pick up. The 08/02 195's are at $3.50 and this cuts max loss in half and you have another 2 weeks of calls to sell. The second half of July historically is down for the markets, but I think we're due for a bounce next week. AMZN averages 2-2.5% daily so as of now you're not too far off. Hopefully it doesn't drop too much more, but there's gamma support at 180 and technical support at 170 -175. AMZN earnings moves also average about +/- 7%. If it stays somewhat in this range I think IV alone along with any runup to earnings will put your 190's in the green. It might be best to close them out (or trim down the position) early before earnings or else you'll really be screwed if they miss.

This is your 5th post about these options since you bought the contract. You are fully aware of what you should've done, but you didn't sell and instead lost more money. AMZN was hitting clear resistance at $200 and began pulling back while the market was hitting a new all-time high. Maybe this is a brief retracement and you can pretend to be a genius in a few weeks; maybe the stock falls to the SMA 200 like it did last fall and you lose everything because you gambled 100k on calls while the stock and SPY were dropping, had zero plan for your trade, and have no idea how options work. With 100k to throw away, you could have just bought 500 shares and sold weekly calls to the fucking idiots trying to catch a falling knife, and not have to worry about theta and IV.

I understand you're stressing, but you do still have time left. The question is how much more are you willing to drawdown into? That's the question you should've had an answer for before entering the position. Know what losses are acceptable to you and what is not. Then stick to it! I don't know if you saw my comments on your post over there, but in my opinion, AMZN will either find support at this level and try to break over 190 again in a week or two, or drop to around 174 before pushing towards 190 again in a few weeks time. I think there's strong support on both the Nasdaq at 19500 (current 19700) and AMZN at 174 (current 183). If you can hold down to those levels you could argue that tech will be primed to move higher again. But I'd be wary of the fact there is clear struggle to break $190 and if you get close to that, the intraday action around that level will determine if it is going to reclaim that as a support to move higher, or be rejected at $190 again to fall back into this channel it's in currently. It's all down to your risk profile and how much you're willing to lose, both on paper and realised, before they expire. You could be down 50% by the time AMZN finds real support. If that is acceptable loss, then ride it out and close if it goes beyond that. Maybe look at selling some 200 strike calls to cover? They've got earnings on the 1st so watch out for that, I could see you clawing back most of your loss from that if it pushes to 190 or above so there's still hope. It just depends on if you can continue to handle the drawdown before it gets there. You bought a month-away expiration for a reason, right?

Mentions:#AMZN

Option prices will start inflating due to IV with earnings but you still need a decent move up to get out of the hole. If it means anything, I bought 100 shares on Friday so I’m bullish but I don’t have an expiration date chipping away at my money like you do. AMZN tends to do well after earnings and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see another pop on great earnings/outlook. But it’s all still a gamble. If we do get a bounce this week, maybe take some contracts off the table so you preserve some of your money and gamble a little on earnings. Could potentially see huge gains if AMZN gets to $200+ after earnings.

AMZN had a trailing p/e of over 300 1 year ago. The stock has nearly doubled since then. The market is forward looking. The valuation does look rich here, but just saying you can't ignore the earnings growth. Forward earnings PEG ratio is probably a better valuation metric than just trailing P/E.

Still got plenty of time. $AMZN can start ripping again fairly soon. You messed up buying the prime day pump. It’s always a sell the news event. Now that they took there profits they will start buying the dip. Or at least I hope so 😂 I bought some $220 calls 8/30 for .97 today. I’m hoping we get a rip in the next week or 2.

Get out while you can. Nothing at this point suggests that AMZN will be up this much in a month. If you’re feeling bullish and adventurous, get a few OTM butterflies for a very small part of your account. Much cheaper than straight calls. Also, call debit spreads are much more forgiving

I'd say it's still plausible for this to drop into 174 before seeing some proper support. Where's the stop loss? What's the game plan? Is there any reason to think that, in 1 month, AMZN is going up to 197? Imo there would probably be resistance at 190 let alone getting back to break even. Want to take the chance on clawing back some gains for a smaller loss? True, the price moved from 180 to 200 in 1 month prior to the market tanking this past week or so, so you're hinging your hopes on that happening again, *to break even*.

Honestly OP with your expiration date you still have a high likelihood of profiting from this trade, AMZN’s numbers are still good. I guess the questions to ask yourself are, did anything change with the company’s outlook since I bought? How do current market conditions affect my position? Am I comfortable with the possibility of loosing more?

Here are examples of amazing posts which could have been even better: * [$75,000 DDOG Loss.](https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets/comments/unsrey/loss_porn_ddog_call/) - This is a great post and one that won't get removed. However, the OP could have talked about *why* they entered the position in the first place, what their target price was, and what went wrong. OP didn't stick around in the comments to answer any questions. * [$1.1MM Loss, No details](https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets/comments/lxm6wt/hold_me_1100000_loss/) - OP simply posted a screenshot of their overall portfolio balance. It's definitely a big loss, but it's not that interesting without OP talking about what trades they were in and why. OP didn't answer most questions in the comments which left many readers speculating on what happened. --- All that being said, we are here to help.

Thanks for your submission! To keep things interesting, we want to see big gains and big losses! So we've set the following thresholds for Gain, Loss, and YOLO flaired posts: * YOLO posts must be a minimum of $10,000 of options or $25,000 of shares and recently opened. * Gain / Loss posts must show realized gains or losses of more than $2,500 for options or $5,000 for shares. We want to see the actual trade. What you got in at, what you sold at. Then tell us why you did it. Give us the story of why you're a fucking genius (or idiot). This is what a great post looks like: [$17.2K Gain on AMZN](https://www.reddit.com/r/wallstreetbets/comments/wb5m4o/not_too_shabby_172k_gain_amzn/) - OP described his gain in the title, has a clear screenshot showing both the entry and exit, meaning his gains were locked in, and they explained their reasoning in the comments and what they learned.

Man - how is CRWD only down 10% after crippling the globe? I swear if AMZN whiffs on earning by missing EPS estimate by 1 cent it tanks more than that.

No. Fallout hasn’t even started yet for them. Companies are going to come after them for reimbursement of losses, and they aren’t MSFT/AMZN/APPL big where they can just pay everyone and keep going on.
