Replying to my commenter...

While i will say that it may seem that OTM options can be viewed as 'sucker' bets... had i went along with my plan B and went with OTM put options... guess what... 1000% gain in 3 days... unfortunately, i speculated (if that word works here) the wrong way...

so, as it goes. my sell signal (that i carelessly didnt pay attention to) was the day the iPad was released. AAPL didnt break 115 thus, that was a signal to get out of it. Unfortunately, i was careless enough not to schedule a sell and cut my loses.

But as i readily posted... i was willing to take a loss on this one... knowing that i have some other investments (bonds in particular) maturing this year. i needed either a home run or a minor loss...

AND i do have shorts in play... just fyi. but thanks for your comment.

As it stands, the iPad should do well enough come the holiday season... IF the whole market keeps this fake rally going. if there is one piece of news that would cause AAPL to shoot up would be a partnership with VZ

MARKET TODAY

Key benchmark indices are likely to open flat note, as global jitters failed to ease. Wall Street tumbled yesterday amid lingering worries about debt problems in the eurozone, sending the Dow Jones industrials to a close below 10,000 for the first time since November 4. Asian markets traded mixed with Japanese stocks sliding, after the Dow industrials closed below 10,000, hit by heightened concerns about the euro zone's sovereign debt troubles. The government yesterday estimated the economy to grow by 7.2 per cent in financial year 2009-10, against 6.7 per cent a year ago, despite contraction in farm production.



According to data released by the NSE, in the last session, FIIs were net sellers of index futures to the tune of Rs 295.75 crore, while they bought index options worth Rs 710.99 crore. They were net sellers of stock futures to the tune of Rs 4.63 crore and sold stock options worth Rs 5.22 crore.

Hi,

Stock market India is volatile and all those who speculate in market are loosing everyday. Please remember stock market is not for speculation purpose. If one feel investing in stock market is gamble then its better to think again.

One should always note that if they want to invest money they should do proper research be it fundamental research or technical research. Just think how come you can invest
your money without any convincing reason for the same?

Indian stock market is one of the most happening and emerging market. Major Indian stock exchanges are BSE and NSE and both are of world class standards.

So grab good stocks and invest that’s the bottom line.

We hope to see you in major profits.

Regards
