Boring nerds for a boring economy
Hey bonddad, this is totally off topic, but I wasn't sure what your e-mail address was. I heard somebody mention this on Tom Hartman today and I was curious as to what your take on it is:http://baltimore.indymedia.org/newswire/display/15697/index.phpThe basic gist of it is somebody's claiming that an individual investor is doing something seemingly insane with options on the SPY. Basically they are betting on a large drop in the index in the next month (to the tune of 30%+).My question is whether this is really as crazy as it seems or is this a surprisingly common thing in the market. Or at the very least not unexpected in a market as turbulent as this one currently it. My tinfoil hat spidey sense is tingling on this, but figured it'd be interesting to get your take.
A play like that makes complete sense right now. I don't think it's anything like inside information.
