“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” – Aldous Huxley

The entire system is corrupt to its core. Both political parties, regulatory agencies, Wall Street, the Federal Reserve, and mainstream media are participants in this enormous fraud. They grow more desperate and bold by the day. The lies, misinformation and propaganda being spewed on a daily basis become more outrageous and audacious. They are using the Big Lie method on a grand scale. They frantically need to lure the muppets into the stock market and the housing market to keep the game going a little longer. You can sense we are reaching a tipping point. The system they have created is mathematically unsustainable. Therefore, it will not be sustained.
Chef.

100 million? Learn how options price before you start doomgasming on yourself?

1000 contracts @.15 = 15,000$ x 100 = 1.5mln

holy hell you doomiots.

100,000 put options at a cost of .15 costs 1.5mln to position.

It is a hedge. They are worthless until XLF hits 15.85 unless they decide to take profit on premium spikes during a correction.

Re: A MASSIVE Bearish Bet Against Banks Has Traders Buzzing
So they bet was against this index? It trades at $17.60 right now, but they paid 1.5 million for 100,000 contracts on a bet that it will drop below 15 by 4/19/13?
What percent will they make if it does drop? And is that % a standard rate or what? Yeah, I'm not a stock person.

FYI this is the name and info on the index they have the put options on:

XLF Tracks This Index: Financial Select Sector Index
Description: The index includes companies from the following industries: diversified financial services; insurance; commercial banks; capital markets; real estate investment trusts; thrift & mortgage finance; consumer finance; and real estate management & development

I've seen this before, it's not a bet, it's a hedge for a MUCH larger bet that the market is going up. Don't play into their trap.

Or someone could have a lot of money already made in the run up of bank stocks and they are hedging off of their profit...

I don't see a big bet the market is going up when that particular index is very near a 52 week high...

I see profit protection...

Would China do something like that to get back at America?

They have a huge stock of Gold (the real stuff), and are owed a lot of money which will evaporate in a crash.

I don't think most people in high political office in the West have any idea as to the end game, just whatever crap their handlers tell them.
