  • I hope I don't regret this too much, but I decided to get out of the long positions completely and take the loss on the second upswing toward $52. It may have been smarter to wait for the European Close to minimize the loss (in theory... we'll see), but I think I'd regret it if we ended-up tanking prior and missing out on this opportunity to get out. I just see more room to the downside.

    It was a mistake not to take the profit on the shorts yesterday; it would be a great opportunity to buy in again on the sorts this morning. Oh well. Patience!

  • Sold one of my long positions at break-even on the spike into news. I still have a few contracts long to play any possible spike, but I think I would regret not reducing my long exposure if we end up tanking following the news.

  • I think we may go lower-still tomorrow... or at least revisit $48, so I think that this was the safe play. Took a small profit off the table and freed-up the cash for another round of adding tomorrow... probably?

  • Well, for better or worse, I've added again. At least for now, it seems that we're settling into a new range, so I "shouldn't" be as worried as I am right now... but let's see how this plays out. Can't win if you don't play, right!?

  • I had expected today to be an active one... if for no other reason than the fact that I suspected traders were looking for any excuse to rally. No such luck... my longs remain stuck for another weekend.

    The question for next week will be whether this horizontal (mostly) week is evidence of some stability... for now, at least... or whether this is the just the calm before the storm... a red, negative, downward sloping storm.......

  • I regretted this add for a long time, so I sort of just wanted to be out of it. I probably could have done a bit better, but freed-up some $ and created some more options for myself. Live to fight another day!

  • It was an active day, but just not quite "active" enough to either give me the opportunity to sell my not-so-great-add from Friday or to add some more at or below $48 (WTI Crude).

    On the upside, however, it seems that the North American markets don't want to have a look at $48 oil just yet, so maybe this buying power/resistance that we experience today results in a green day, finally!

  • I have no sense of what's coming next over the oil horizon, so I played it safe and bought something on a dip, but a bit less than usual in case we do just dive again to $48 or something next. Options stay open, but I've got something in the game if we change directions.

  • The volatility scared me out of my addition. It turns out that my entry for this addition wasn't the best and we dropped quite a bit below where I added. I decided that it was the safe bet to sell this add at a small profit when I was given a window in case we drop right back down again. I can always add again today or tomorrow... we'll see.

    At least, for now, I've reduced my exposure a little.
