Someone purchased 35K of 16 Oct'20 $255 puts on SPY paying a whopping $63.7m for these puts.

At today's high, the S&P 500 got within ~16% of the most extreme valuations in U.S. history.
I know ya'll are looking "over the valley" because recession lows are followed by bull markets.
Worth remembering that those recession lows were at valuations about 40% of today's. pic.twitter.com/WGehxlGky0
