Musk is officially nuts. I hope they have an army of lawyers in that company because they're about get sued by shorts AND longs. Releasing that info at 11PM on a Friday, pathetic.

By the way, it's more than likely the deal will go through at a price greater than $420. I just bought a shit ton more today.

Well, to be fair, that was only one trade on the only stock relevant to this discussion.

I have a BMW as well as free time. Not quite sure what doesn't "add up."

What I mean by "doesnt add up" is that you casually sold more shares than Tesla's CFO, the 3rd largest shareholder, holds? You made $2M in a couple weeks and you're hanging out on a BMW forum instead of, say, the Bugatti forum. I dunno, just seems off, but whatever. If that's all legit, then good for you.

it is "paper trading" or back-testing. those are not real trades or actual positions. not sure which platform that is but most people would not show size when selling and bleed out of the position instead so it doesn't walk the bids and offers down.especially on a short term swing trade since every penny counts. also getting that size done in one shot without multiple fills is difficult but doable. i could probably look up t&s for the dates and see if a block went off but too lazy to do it at the moment. we used to train/teach the newcomers like that before going live with real money. the crappy part is there is no fear when paper trading so you often see positions like that. all of a sudden when it's real money on the line the positions got real small and scalping occurred.

That's a whole world that I'm not familiar with, but everything you said makes sense. One might say it "adds up", unlike the account from our day-trading friend. Happy to be proven wrong if FC4 wants to back up his claims, or you know, prove he's Deepak Ahuja.

I am not 100% certain but it appears to be given the size and the timing of the trade. Looking at TSLA chart on the 29th there was no real technical or fundamental reason to go heavy on the buy-side... On the flip-side I have stated several times that you can channel trade TSLA anywhere from $280-350 area for the past year and make a few bucks without breaking a sweat unfortunately putting up a block of 25k as a retail "investor" or "trader" would spike the bid and be highly unlikely since the institution facilitating the trade would probably break up the block into 100-300 share increments to fill rapidly and looking at the T&S on TSLA that is what most of the days look like in terms of sizes going off.

This the most recent activity on TSLA and this is basically repeatedly daily:

LOL. Well said.

It's Etrade's Gains & Losses tab. It just displays the total transaction size. Of course it was broken up.

That is all. Carry on.

if you're going through e-trade you could easily post a snap shot of the tax center gains/losses P&L instead of the screen shot you did. that would be more convincing and the more credible post to make.

It would accomplish what your original "lulz" retort was an attempt to do. You are the one who voluntarily offered a screen cap of your "position" and "profits". Why not show us more accurate data? You know the tax you would pay on about 29% return in short-term on $7mm.
