  • We hit as low as $50.59 today. I wanted to hold out for closer to $52 to sell this long, but the reality is that we're up over $1.00 today alone, which is significant. I decided that it was smarter to sell the long at $51.70 (the high of the day, for now) and re-buy or re-position on the next pull back ...assuming we get one. It's a risk, but it's always a risk.

  • Decided to play it safe and un-greedy and get back into a long position however small in case the bull-ride isn't yet over. I bought at a Crude price of $51.24 and thus far, the N.A. session has reached as low as $51.23 - well above the lows from Europe earlier this morning at $51.09.

  • OPEC announced that they're considering cutting production ...that, in combination with the latest hurricane in the Gulf has given a second wind to the Bulls and resulted in a rally for Crude back above $50 ...touching as high as $50.59 this morning ahead of the open. I sold at a Crude price of $50.55 (way better than I wanted this morning) and will be buying short as well.

  • Crude is down 2.8% this morning as I post this trade... lower than where I bought long, of course, but this buy still makes sense strategically as a way of rebalancing the portfolio for the weeks/months ahead. I bought long at a crude price of $49.45 and ...for now... we've gone as low as $49.33. I sold the previous shorts at $49.48.

  • ...and, of course, we're still climbing - heading for $51. I'll be looking to buy more short now, but I "should" wait for it to settle down. I want to act, though. Ugh...

  • Got the HOU buy at a Crude price of $50.25 following a 2.7% drop into the open. Bought this position after selling 3 short positions this morning too, so happy to start balancing the portfolio a little. We may be going sub-$50 today, but really happy with this buy regardless of what happens now.

  • Took a loss on the remainder of the long position that I had been holding for... well... forever. I don't believe that I decided to do so because (only because) I believe that we're reaching the top, but also because I think that my new / modified approach justifies this move. Keep the money moving. For better or worse!

  • Of course, we're going higher still as I write this, but I've decided to begin exiting some of these longs as this rally reaches new highs. I may exit the remainder later today if we make it to $52. This sucks, of course, but I think I'm doing the right thing strategically. Ugh.

  • Market said it wasn't willing to climb higher, so I'm just going to listen and take a basically break-even sale on the other long position from Friday and re-buy on the next dip if we do in-fact keep climbing. Will buy short if we climb as well, of course.

  • Sold just the one long position when we failed to hit my target of about $47.34. I sold the long from a Crude price of $47.39 at a price of $48.05 - right about where the other long is still held. With the short buy earlier today, we're well situated for a move in either direction tomorrow :)
