Robinhood suicide story -- My educated guess on the trade As far as I know the actual trade hasn't been revealed, but some details are out. So based on those details I would like to take an educated guess on the trade. I am guessing on the strikes, but I think they are close. Account: $16,000 Trade: AMZN OTM credit put spread Wednesday June 10, 2020 AMZN at $2,650 Sell 3 contracts June12 2,590 puts Buy 3 contracts June12 2,585 puts Credit about $500 Maximum loss $1000, maximum profit $500 Thursday June 11, 2020 AMZN drops $90 to $2,560 The credit put spread is now ITM No big deal as the maximum loss is only $1000 Now this is how the trade went downhill. The short puts where exercised early on Thursday June 11, 2020 and 300 AMZN shares were put to his account at $2,590 each. 300 x $2,590 = $777,000 $777,000 - margin available = $730,000 His account shows a buying power of -$730,000 but does not show the long 300 AMZN shares or the long 2585 puts. He then killed himself later that day. Friday June 12, 2020 AMZN opens at $2,600 The 300 AMZN shares are liquidated at $2,600 $2,600 x 300 = $780,000 $780,000 - $777,000 = $3,000 profit. Still long the AMZN June12 $2,585 puts. Daily range from $1.00 to $80.00. Expired at $40.00. His account most likely was at a huge profit on Friday.
