nice trade so far!!!! To the moon!
Yeah, man, that demand for KOSPI (kopsi?) option...
I'd love to see a person make a market in Bitcoin vol. I'd also love to see a risk manager that would approve any sizable position in it.
how nice if we could enter a BTC sell stop order at 19000.
and how nice if there is BTC VIX volatility index futures for trading.
Anybody remember the IBM warrants that couldn't be borrowed and sold short. Probably about two decades ago. Would have been a fabulous buy/write, but they couldn't be sold short. I think they were issued to sweeten a bond.
It didn't end well and it happened in a few hours.
Sure. A phantasmal payment for a phantasmal product is quite equitable.
33-50% retrace, consolidation, then up and away. Not betting the farm, though.
If it can't be shorted (and no BTC is available on regulated markets like IB), then how can anybody sell them?
Because other brokers will allow shorting.
P.S. IB isn't a regulated market. It is a broker that allows it's clients to trade on regulated markets like the CME, NYMEX etc.
IB won't allow shorting and will only allow longs @ 50% margin. Most other brokers will offer both directions.
