Stock Options Explosion in Goldman Sachs (GS)

Print Email

Trying to count options contracts in shares of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (NYSE: GS) is nearly impossible, and this was copied from trade blotters with snapshots of 12:12 to 12:18 PM EST.  The notion that today is options expiration date already posted is only adding fuel to the fire… or is it a pyre?  There are well over 50 million shares traded and shares were down 13% around the $160.00 mark at last look.  After tallying up the options traded, it is well over 300,000 options contracts.  On a fully leveraged basis, that would be more than 30 million shares more.
