    Good luck with that. Regarding IV , does that get adjusted prior to open or as it opens? any thoughts on where it may begin at, was in the 40's yesterday... thanks Erick

    Hope you got adjusted unscathed, who would have thought a near zero change post earnings on this one? Wonder which eay momentum will carry once market fully opens...

    Hi Erick, you know you're in good company. I have some OTM calls..May 470 and some puts May 320's. A bit of a wide straddle but if the stock had gone wild either way, who knows. I ended up selling the calls later in the day but bought some back just before the close. I think IV put myself out to be crushed...
    As you say, time will tell, have a good Wednesday!

  • Markets recover after a brief crash caused by an erroneous report the President had been injured in an explosion at the White House. The news came about from AP's twitter feed being hacked. The White House says the President is fine, and the AP's White House correspondent calls the report "obviously false." [View news story]

    Hi Eric, tough times, - re AAPL would you expect the IV collapse to be immediate regardless of direction/month of exp. If yes would you see low 20's from present 40's? on IV. So, basically what I'm asking is if IV crush is automatic with an earnings result or does direction due to results weigh in also. I remember having some puts on RIMM way back and they had an ugly earnings release, stock dropped, options shrunk....badly.

    Thanks

    Hi Erick, how would SPY puts compare to your SDS calls? Less volatility return? Thanks

    Yea, I ended up being one of them. Had some puts on the Q's and was amazed how it came back and held at the 67.50 area...forever. It was like the market was waiting for a fed announcement or something. Didn't really know what was happening in the final minutes and decided to close out my position. Better safe than way on the wrong side...at least that's how it felt at the time.
