I’m new to options trading, but very curious. What do you all suggest I read to learn more?

Plenty of sources out there to read. I haven’t read any books personally, but have read various articles online, watched options action on CNBC on Fridays and fast money Mon-Fri. I’ve been investing and watching CNBC since I was 16, so I’ve always had an interest in the market. For beginners, I’d suggest an account with TDAmeritrade and you can use their “paper money” mobile platform to try it out given the inherent risk in options trading.

Are ARK funds' inflows propping up the underlying stocks prices?
Can someone tell me if I understand this correctly? Let's use ARKG as an example. PACB is 6.54% of fund. If the fund takes in a billion in the next week, they'll deploy somewhere around 6% of that into PACB to stay on % target. $60 million gets invested over the month into PACB. Volume in PACB in December was 34.2m shares at ~$30 for a total of 1 billion volume. ARKG took in over 400m in one day during December...
