Put Options Making The Rounds – Again

"Before you read this article, conduct this test. Try to purchase some stock, or some futures, a mutual fund or some put options, without providing your identity. Go ahead and try it! See if you get anywhere. Find out what happens when you tell the investment firm that you want to make a huge investment anonymously. It can't be done.

Then ask yourself this question: How could someone have placed anonymous put options on American Airlines and United Airlines just prior to the attacks of 9/11? Then ask yourself why no one has investigated this suspicious deal. Ask yourself why there has been no attempt by the US government to identify the person who anticipated huge profits from a disaster that was yet to occur. Is it because the trail possibly leads to the CIA?"

If I recall correctly this story began with Michael Ruppert back in October 2001. It was a hot hot hot story on alternative sites, added to the list of "further proof" that 9/11 was an inside job.

Yea, why has no one investigated this suspicious deal? Could it be the "put options" story was put out by CIA? Have the masses been psy-op'ed yet again with worthless information?

I smell a hamster wheel.

For years the IFCA has worked on anonymity issues at yearly conferences. From 1999 lecture notes in computer science, the concept of an eshare, or digital stockholder certificate, which allows investors in companies to buy and trade shares without revealing their identity or the size of their investment. Dividend payments to investors are also supported, again without revealing shareholder identities, even if a government taxation agency requires verifiable documentation of shareholder earnings. The protocols presented are based on certified anonymous public keys with trustee-revocable anonymity, which may be of independent interest."

Are the above procedures in practice? Can powerful people play the market anonymously? Can you say it positively can't be done, isn't being done?

According to the blogosphere the person holding the put options never claimed the profits from 9/11 and is being protected by the government. Wouldn't a financially savvy person know he couldn't collect before he placed the put options? Besides, it was $2 million or so – chump change compared to the billions made "legitimately" by contractors and investors. Granted they are greedy, but not stupid. Well, not so stupid as to leave a trail of put options to their door.

Gotta wonder why all these "ignored by the mainstream" stories seem to come from all the same "truth" websites too.

Rehash rehash. Can't Intel plant some new and better material?
