  • It still "looks" quite bullish and I wouldn't be surprised at all if the rally continued into tomorrow, but if that's the case, then I'll buy/add to my short position after the next bump. The profit (2.5%) on the long was good enough and would have hurt to give up since I've been holding it for 6 weeks, so ...it is what it is... no regrets! Have $ to play the next game :)

  • Today's news was negative, but the bulls managed to get us to climb anyway. That said, we didn't climb high at all. I held out for a push to $45 as long as I dare today, but at 2:15 (almost), we're still struggling to get past $44.80, so I just took what profit I was being offered and now we're better positioned to drop... which is what I ultimately think will happen this week.

    I'm not yet prepared to add more shorts, however, so I'll just wait if we do actually make it up above $45 or not before I do. I risk being in a now-play zone for a few days now, but so be it. Better safe than full of regret.

  • I do still think that we're going up today, but there's understandably a lot of resistance trying to break through $43, so I suspect that we could get a pull-back and a re-buy/long opportunity. This may have been a sell-to-soon scenario, but missing out on a 3.26% profit.

  • I waited as long as my patience could take and managed to buy at my target price of $42.20 following the second dip of the session. It may still dive deeper, of course, but it's a good entry strategically and if it does dive deeper, then we still have plenty of cash on-hand to buy well below $42. My thinking, however, is that $42 may represent a significant resistance level for the near term, so hopefully we get a quick profit out of this buy... please?

  • I'm still long and overall, I'm bullish, but there's still quite a lot of speculation about us going much lower and today may be the day that we try and make a move for the lower $40s... I was offered a profit as well as an opportunity to reduce exposure, so I took it. No regrets.

    If we drop now, I'll feel better about the move and if we spike on news, then we're still in a position to benefit from that, so all is good. Now... we wait for 10:30a.m. EST!

  • As I post this, we're re-testing the lows from Europe's session so we may be going even lower, but I bought at a Crude price of $43.28 and that was a great price, strategically, so I just went for it. Hopefully this pain doesn't last too long and the bulls get to run wild soon.

  • This morning it looked like we were going to get into my target Short/Bear range of $45.20-$45.50, but it wasn't meant to be. Instead, shortly before Europe's close we started to fall and then we dropped again at about 2p.m.... finally we faded into the close and we bought at the near bottom of about $44.08.

    There's certainly a chance that we go below $44, but that may happen in European or Asian trading and this price was strategically already good enough. Now, let's see.

  • I have no confidence on the direction today. I can see it going well over $45, but can also see it testing $43, so took a nice profit and will wait for Europe to close to evaluate the next play. Happy with the call as it seems to be drifting lower now, but we'll see.

  • We bounced as high as $44.70 after I got a partial fill on this order, but ultimately came back down and then some to fill the balance. We went lower still and that filled the sell order on the bear as well, so now we're fully bullish ...for today, at least.
