  2. I'll upload it from my G200 at 41,000ft just to make a point.

  3. I think the ceiling is 39,000 on those, and about what I expected for a response. My guess is that it would stall well before 41k and crash like a big white turd.

  4. Those volcano fumes and ash particles do crazy stuff to people. :(

  5. Well genius, you would be wrong on the ceiling. It is FL450 and 0.79m is normal at that altitude. Anyway I traded 24k listed options Friday so a "retail blotter" as you call it is pretty much out of the question.

  6. But from the hostility and tone of your comments, I suspect that you were short a chunk of vega or short some knockouts that got paid or maybe you were forced to cover a bunch of gamma or vega by your firm/risk mgr at 40ish.

  7. Congrats on a great call!! To be off by 1 point from a closing vix of 40'ish on Friday is a great feat in its own. I was one of the people that voted in the 22-27 range.

  8. lol, you come on a message board boasting about offering 1MM vegas 800bp under the close, but after the market gets a historic bailout and +28 on ES. Then you call them pikers for not crossing OTC with some guy on the internet. You're brilliant.

    I am sure that you were too busy fcuking Melania Trump to post the trade on Friday. No wifi on the Gulfstream?

  9. Yes, I admit that was a good call, to be off by less than 100bp.

  10. I don't really find her that attractive (although others may) and she is FAR too old for my tastes in general and my wife is hotter by a mile. How much short vega did you cover on Friday anyway? Such hostility.
