Okay, someone please educate the rest of us. I had sold TUP Jan 22 $35 puts that will expire over the weekend. While I am happy to pocket the cash I am blown away that those put contracts were selling yesterday for $10 each. In addition, there was significant open interest. Why? There was zero chance that they would have any value by Monday morning so who was making these trades? Could I seriously have sold 20 contracts on Friday afternoon and pocketed $200 at zero risk? Anyway, anyone with an insight please feel free to share. Thanks.
