  • Although this looks to be an impatient move, it was a rational decision. We sold the short from $49.05 yesterday reasonably well at $48.60, so with profits in the bank and more downside potential, I felt good about buying back into the bear (HOD) at an even better price than we had originally. No matter what - up or down - I'm better off today than I was yesterday. Now it's just time to be patient and wait for Europe to do their thing.

  • Sold on the last minute dip of the day heading into close. We may drop again tomorrow, but this positions us well to re-buy some shorts if we go up any higher than closing. Tomorrow should be fun!

  • OPEC did what was expected and didn't surprise the markets. Apparently everyone was hoping that they would announce much deeper cuts, which they did not do, and oil is falling... almost 5% as of this trade post. Pay day! :)

  • I think (I hope) that we're topping-out before a pull back heading into Wednesday. I guess we'll see. Boy has this been a long stretch for the bulls.

  • I don't trust this rally and although a bit aggressive to add again after only another $0.55 move, we're in the right range so if there's a time to be aggressive, this is it... right?

  • Happy with my moves this morning. We dropped fast in European trading, but rebounded in early NA trading so I re-bought the HOD (oil bear / short) that we sold end of day yesterday. We may go higher, but it's a good gap from our still-open short at around $48 (crude), so this positions us well.

    I was originally thinking of buying long this morning, but we opened much higher than the lows of Euro-trading, so it wasn't looking as attractive as I would have wanted.

  • In and out on the same day always feels good. Really happy with the new approach of just setting targets and taking money off the table when it's offered.

  • The up move on news wasn't very exciting today. The news as a drawdown on inventories, but not as much as was projected... we did move up, but appears to be a fair bit of resistance.

    I'm happy with my patience today - waited for Europe to close and executed the plan with a HOD/short order. We've moved up a few pennies already, but still lots of resistance.
