  • We never settled at the lows this morning, but are settling at about $50.63 as it tries to go from red to green again today. I bought here probably because I'm really frustrated today, but also because it's half way between my existing 2 short positions. I may regret this, but I don't think I'll need to regret it for too long (I hope!).

  • Unbelievably, we jumped back up to the highs in defiance of the bearish news that EIA released a few minutes ago after initially trying to fall. I'm feeling "good" about this short, but we'll see. I'm looking to exit my long-term $52 long position if we go up again, but I feel I should wait for Europe to close first.

  • I can't believe this week... the rally continues. Not much more to say right now. Just sticking to my plan and trying to remain disciplined... but wow am I wrong this time. Hopefully the turn around comes soon... or at least a relief drop/dip to create a long-buying opportunity as a hedge?

  • Logic suggests we should be heading lower, but the bears aren't flexing today and higher still we go. I bought, again, this afternoon after being patient with an order at $49.35 (2 cents off from the peak set 1.5 hours ago... so at least I was VERY [for me] patient. Of course, we may go higher again tomorrow and I recognize that this is an aggressive move, but I'm prepared to handle the risk if I'm wrong (again).

  • I bought at $48.75 ...right before it jumped up to a high of $48.86 with 30-minutes left before EIA news today. It's a $1 gap over the previous short position, so a slightly larger stake and dipping into the margin (may be stupid). Fingers crossed, I guess.

  • 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 :)

  • I waited as long as my patience could take ...after Europe's closing and bought short again as a hedge to protect the Long positions from Friday at $47.75. I was hoping for at least $47.85, but we may not make it there and I'd be annoyed with myself if we dropped before I could get in because I was trying to save a couple bucks.

    ...of course, as I'm finishing this trade post, it jumped to $47.95... ugh. Oh well... it's still a small position.

  • What a reversal from yesterday's boredom. Sold 2 shorts and bought 2 long positions in as many hours. We've hit as low as $47.37 on Crude today and this long is purchased at a price of $47.39. Very happy with the action and my choices today... we'll see how the play out, of course, but I'm liking this combination of patience and execution.

  • Wow, when the bulls give it up, they give it up. I managed to get in on a long position earlier today at price far better than I had expected and manged to sell not one, but two, short positions at a better price than expected as well. If we drop much farther, I'll be adding to my long hedge now, but it's a good way to wrap-up the week!
