    $SDRL, $ESV, $DO, $NE, $ATW, $RDC, $RIG: Stop grabbing the falling knife. Wait for the selling onslaught to stop. Sellers are in charge.

    • 360NoviceInvestor: Falling knife is right... We'll see what happens but in the mean time it is not fun to see my options become essentially worthless.

    • 360NoviceInvestor: This is why it is recommended to buy calls with expiration dates at least a couple months out.
