I have put in a limit order for 1.1

Edit: filled, profit was 850$ minus 150$ com.....

Again, once the market went against the position, I should have averaged in, I was pretty damn sure of the rally. At the lowest the calls were 0.65

For some reasons the trade didn't execute yesterday. I put it through 4:02 pm or so, I thought options are open until 4:15. maybe there was no trade after 4 pm, so no trade in Virtual world either. The price would have been 0.33

So I executed it at the open and I got a better price 0.44, thus loss was only -400$ minus (well, plus) 150$ com...

Edit: It was the 151 puts, I forgot to mention...

This one expired worthless with a loss of 2750$..

From tomorrow I will start to build a bigger short position, because I expect the market to turn South for 5-7 days...
