A little known sub-Reddit dedicated to educating novice traders around options has produced an individual who turned less than $1k into over $100k. He accomplished the feat with two legendary trades on short term, out of the money puts (on Roku, and then the S&P 500). And he has the Robinhood screenshots to prove it.
Before he became famous for the big short in the 2000s, Michael Burry discussed stock trades on online message boards. Burry’s posts were thoughtful, well-reasoned and showed deep research. The sub-Reddit WallStreetBets, with the tagline “Like 4chan found a Bloomberg terminal,” is rarely any of those things.
