We really missed out on an opportunity there! We coulda refinanced some properties and sent it to the good folks at Celsius.

If he’s talking about people who just [b]blindly[/b] buy calls (or puts), I wouldn’t necessarily disagree with him. But statistics are statistics. And if you methodically stay with high probability setups over the long term, with lots of occurrences, you [b]are[/b] the house. It’s worked for me ...
