I should have bought some SPY puts about 8 days ago. I could have retired had I gone all in with SPY puts last week but I didn't

Anyone here chasing them SPY puts now

Sold my YANG today. Sold my ERY on Friday (should have held out to today - but who knew?). Dipped my toe a little into TYH at the end of day. Will probably want to pick up some more slowly tomorrow. I'm banking on support of S&P at 1250.

Are you still holding MPEL? I think I'm going to buy put if it comes back to >14.

LNKD is going to announce after close today, could swing big in either direction.

I disagree... who knows where QE3 is right now...

QE3 better come quick, and if it does, it'll look so desperate that even Joe public might catch on and get upset.

Double-S is banned, on the day the market tanks - coincidence? Mods in bad mood about their 401ks?

I think Q3 will kick in sooner or later. This is a reason for it to kick in. Bernanke said before that Q3 will kick in if needed and they are creating a need for it now. In order for it to kick in there must be a need. They need to show Congress that this is needed so they create panic to show that things are not ok and there is a need for Q3.
