Interesting thread.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

At $1,000 it was a runaway train. Now I don't know what to call it

The tracks are made out of glass, so it's just as risky to stand under it or next to it.

Roof is also made of glass.

Anyone into long straddles?

Who is in for tesla? By the money puts and calls together are about $20k for 2 contracts. (1 call for 10k and 1 put for 10k)

I think with earnings this week it's a no brainer! Free money!

Who is in?

I haven't done Tesla straddles in a while but just a heads up options tend to be expensive in the week or so leading up to earnings. Unless there's some huge surprise, you tend to see very little to no movement on a straddle purchased so close to earnings.

I posted the price. It's $200. The stock gotta move $200 and you break even. Don't you think tesla will move $200? If it indeed beats earnings and posts a profit, it will join the s&p and the stock will go up (at least for a short period of time) to 1800+. If it misses it will go down to 1200 or lower.
