    so sorry for sharing a story about options markets that I thought the community of active posters might find interesting.

    sorry if i offended you - that was not my intent. Zero hedge is notorious; they are not a respected news source. There are fundamental market drivers that have taken us higher the past few days.

    i am well aware of the limits to zerohedge's reliability. it also requires only a bit a back-of-the-envelope math to see that the dollar losses experienced by this fund could cause meaningful distortions in options markets.

    I found 'Catalyst' story pretty interesting, not so much because of it's market influence but because of it's history. I wish to see more details.
    I wonder if Mr Walczak would benefit from reading this forum :)

    Really ?
    This is the only reason the market has been going up ?
    So the Presidential election had nothing to do with it ?

    Zerohedge is a propaganda shop but quite a few times I like their take and many a times they are right also - nothing like taking a pinch of truth(iness) and writing a 4 page story to sell ads. Not sure how true this story is but the market pricing right now is an outlier amongst outliers. My conspiracy theory is that this is a scheme to own Trump - take the market high, then crash it until he begs for help from Paul Ryan and the bankers to fix it, and in return they get what they want - all their agenda and none of trump's. Maybe I am wrong but wait and watch.
