  • I was prepared to buy the short at $48.20 when we got there as the afternoon rally continued today, but managed to get it at $48.35 instead, about 10 cents better than where I had this short at the start of the week :) ...looks like we may be going higher still, but I'm quite happy with this buy.

  • Got a sudden rally after Europe markets closed and just as I was entering my order to sell my $46.75 long at $47.30, it jumped to $47.45, so I took it. As I post this, we've touched as high as $47.55, so we may be going higher still, but I'm quite satisfied with that play. If we reach $48+, I'll be re-buying some shorts, of course.

  • I was prepared to hold this long at above $47 yesterday, so $46.75 was a gift, right? I guess we'll see how long I end up holding this one now, but I feel good about this as a longer term hold regardless.

  • An un-greedy HOU buy this morning got me back in on the Bull positions and it turned out to be near the bottom prior to the bounce that I expected to see today. Not a huge profit, but satisfying day trade :) Will buy again near $47 if we drop back down tomorrow or later this week, of course.

  • I think we may go sub-$47 on Crude today, and as I type this we're still falling, so we'll see, but I think that this is a long term Long position, so I'm glad that I got in. With my short at about this same price, I'll be looking to take a profit on either one of these two positions today. Now... are we heading lower or right back up on a nice bounce?

  • Again, same situation as last time. I was really hoping that we would go to $47.12 or lower so that I could exit 2 short positions simultaneously, but it was not to be. Decided to play it safe, again, and exit just the one short at $47.47. If we go to $47.00 tomorrow, I'll buy (add to) long and if we drop below $47, I'll be selling more shorts. At this point, it's starting to look likely that we'll get a bounce, in which case I would re-buy the short. Tomorrow is another day!

  • I was really holding out hope for a sale closer to $48 so that I could exit more than one short position at once, but it wasn't meant to be. Took a healthy profit on just the one short position on the chance that we bounce back up within this same range that has haunted me for nearly two weeks now. A revisit of $50 truly wouldn't surprise me at this point.

  • For better or worse, I bought at a crude price of $49.66 as the bulls try to make a push toward $50. As I write this, we've climbed another 10-cents, so we'll see, but the price made sense according to my "rules", so I feel good about it... for now :p

  • Still lots of volatility in the minutes after EIA news, so I think it's still anyone's game. It is still trying to climb higher as I write this... we're at $48.77 now (I bought at $48.55), but we'll see how the day ends-up closing.

  • 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 :)
