    Alan,

    I am trying to use Put options to buy ARK EFT’s for the first time and interestingly, the strike price I used got adjusted at the end of the day (example: I put my strike price as $120 for ARKK but it got adjusted to $117.52 ) and this never happened to me on any stocks or ETF’s before. Is it not advisable to buy a PUT on EFT’s ?

    Thanks a lot.

    Sara

      Happy New Year.
