  • My gut says that we get climb again either today or tomorrow, so we should get another opportunity buy the bear. I feel good about this. We may go deeper today, but not much... I think.

  • I sent the $46.60 target last week and today we happened to open right there. There was a chance that we'd make an early-day attempt at $47, but decided to stick to the overall longer term target and buy HOD (the crude oil bear ETF) where I had previously planned.

    It's now just after Europe's close and we appear to want to tumble from these highs, but if we make an attempt at $47 in the afternoon, it may be a good opportunity to offload the HOU buy from last week's drop following Wednesday's news. If, on the other hand, we do in fact tumble back to $46, then I'll get ride of this HOD buy in hopes of re-buying again following a bounce - maybe tomorrow.

  • It was flirting with falling even deeper, below $46, but I wasn't greedy and took an amazing profit off the table. Much better than I could have hoped for yesterday, so don't want to second guess myself - regardless of what may happen later today.

  • I truly regretted the purchase yesterday afternoon. It was purely out of frustration that I bought that block of HOD (bear) shares. Today's news saw a massive tank in the price of Crude and I actually sold that buy really well, but that was luck. I broke all the rules on that one and I'm lucky to just get out, let alone with a profit.

  • Tripped down on my beliefs, which probably isn't the smartest thing that I've ever done. I think that I just became frustrated at my inaction and then witnessing crude do the exact opposite of what I expected it to do. Hopefully this pays off, but we'll see... this could hurt.

  • Today we saw below $47 and now we're back to $48 on a technical rally. My instinct suggest that we should see an afternoon pull back to roughly where we we opened at $47.50... which would allow me to sell this position for a small profit.

    If we keep climbing, then I still feel ok about holding this position for a while. I think we'll see this level again in time.

  • Sold the position purchased on today's news hype. The overall downward pressure just beat it back down to the opening level. Very pleased with my calls today. I'm hoping for a bounce, in which case I would repurchase the short (HOD), but if we keep falling to below $48, then the bull (HOU) starts looking appealing.

  • Happy to have the opportunity to short again at this price. Was prepared to buy at $48.65 yesterday, so this is just gravy. mmm... gravy :)

    ...now let's see if we drop following Europe's close or if it continues on this upward trajectory. As of this post, it's very hesitant just below $49.
