USO liquidation?

Discussion in 'Options' started by FSU, Apr 21, 2020.

  1. USO already finished rolling their May position last week. I was referring to the June contract. They will be getting margin calls if it falls to $6.40 but there is no way who ever they clears their trades will wait until that price to start liquidating.

  2. Means a lot more pain ahead for people who think they're buying oil at the bottom.

  3. Eh... not really. I am a small barnacle. I can hold all year and it wont matter... even if my measly 600 shares are liquidated. I wasn't planning on selling anytime soon anyway and relatively low risk.

    I more so feel bad for gussian :

    Ive done poorly overall trying to trade oil stocks & ETFs this past month. I made a tiny win APA but lost hundreds trading UWT DWT UCO USO etc.

    There is likely a trade in oil somewhere but I have sucked trying so I'll hold off for now.

    Pot & casino stocks have been better for me MGM PENN TLRY CGC there's a joke in there somewhere lol

    How about shorting futures? I thought this is the obvious trade.
