    If Tesla is added to S&P 500 the weighting will be close to 0.715%. I found about 3 trillion dollars of funds that track that index and would need to buy TSLA. Thats about 21 billion dollars worth of stock. Can anybody find more acurate number for funds tracking SPX?

  • From kidincollege:

    Ok @MikeMcDonald89 I bought an $8 call on $SPXS. The 3x leveraged bear S&P 500 ETF. Expiring 01/15/21 for $2.40. It’s already 8.28ish so I bought slightly in the money. I couldn’t resist! This market is way over priced!
