Goog & The S&P ??

Discussion in 'Trading' started by Slim Harpo, Jun 17, 2005.

  1. Was the S&P realigned or whatever they do to it yet? and was Google involved at all?
  2. The reason I asked this a couple hours ago is I wanted to play around with some GOOG options..

    I did anyway...

    I bought (20) June 280 Calls at 3:26pm @ $.05 when GOOG was still in that $277 and change range most of the day..

    Then a flurry hit right before the close and Goog briefly touched over $280 and the options started going crazy and I already had put in to sell them for $.15 and they did at @ 3:52:34pm....After that it touched .20 and then went downhill from

    So made a quick buck..

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    PS> I just looked now at 4:25 at GOOG's closing price and it shows $280.30 but yet the last trade on the June 280 Calls shows .05 which is what I saw right after I sold mine for .15
    I dunno..just glad that I put in to close them out at .15 as soon as I bought them @ .05 cause it was quite a flurry..
