@nntaleb ‘s theory gets vindicated yet again with https://t.co/0gLrnZXQGX going bust ! forget the jargon, the greeks, the probability of profit fundas, the fake safety of far otm strikes ... simply stay away from oversized naked options selling !— Umesh Ranglani (@umeshranglani) November 17, 2018

These people https://t.co/PgG503ezXV who blew up were citing me and The Black Swan to propose ... selling TAIL options. Unbelievable. Exactly the opposite of what I write. pic.twitter.com/XBDoRs0Jya
1. https://t.co/9ZWSlKgjoT invested clients money only in Natural Gas CE. No diversification.— P R Sundar (@PRSundar64) November 17, 2018
2. They sold only CE, so it is directional bet.
3. Cold weather make Natural Gas price to move violently, so it is high risk.
4. Did not exit at right time. So no risk management.
