        $AAPL $109 pin. My short 109 put now worth $0. So predictable, just like last Friday & most other Fridays.

                Obama said today he is open to Congress sending him "repatriation bills" and to use the $ on transportation infrastructure. Good for $AAPL.

                    • pocohonta: yep, pinned at 108 on Friday options expiration day. Happens so often, it's almost predictable. Use it to your advantage!

                        Sold most of my $AAPL calls as stk hit new high, rolled the rest into Feb/Apr/Jun months. Will buy dips but not holding my breathe for one.

                            $AAPL up 1% while market is down 1% today. All else equal, if market recover by 1% then Apple should be up another 1%.

                                    $AAPL should close slightly up, around $102 today after the Alibaba mania subsides. Shorted 21 of Sep $102 calls against my LEAPs.
