Your biggest %Percentage% winner?

  1. Lately, with the volatility I'm sure there are some big winners out there.

    My biggest is not really so big. Only 641%

    When I do well in a week I like to take a little extra risk on exp. Normally I trade expiration regardless.

    I've been trading Bidu exclusively( a little GS) for a few months and have a good feel for her.

    On thurs Aug 4(or there abouts) she rallied a tad and bought some puts ( about $3 or 4 OTM) around close. She gapped down the next morning.

    Bought @.17 sold @ 1.26.

    I've never seen options move so fast. Someone sold their puts for 5.20 a few milla seconds before me. They went from 5.20 to .80 in a blink of an eye.

    I was happy with the 641% but I was extremely disappointed I was too slow to capture more. I use TDA, maybe thats my problem.

    Hey guys what's your most expensive home worth? Mine's not really so much, only $8,000,000.

    Hey guys what's your best time when running the mile? Mine's not really so fast, only 1 minute 31 seconds.

    Hey guys what's the most you've ever squatted? Mine's not really so much, only 2,000 pounds.

    I made two spikes on TSLA and a few spikes on shorting EK before earnings.
  4. Probably not a good thread considering most on here are chasing nickels or making 50 round trips a day to make two ticks.

    Besides I only had 30 contracts so I didn't make a gazillion dollars. Thats why I asked in % percentage terms and not dollar terms.

    Nevermind people.
