  • I have no sense of what's coming next over the oil horizon, so I played it safe and bought something on a dip, but a bit less than usual in case we do just dive again to $48 or something next. Options stay open, but I've got something in the game if we change directions.

  • The volatility scared me out of my addition. It turns out that my entry for this addition wasn't the best and we dropped quite a bit below where I added. I decided that it was the safe bet to sell this add at a small profit when I was given a window in case we drop right back down again. I can always add again today or tomorrow... we'll see.

    At least, for now, I've reduced my exposure a little.

  • I was debating with myself whether to make this add-buy, but I decided to go for it. It's been a slow decline all morning to this point right now. Yes, I see the possibility of crashing to $48, but I would be annoyed if we bounced and I missed the opportunity to play that ride up so early in this series.

    I think volatility is going to be extreme for the remainder of the week... hopefully this add pays off by helping me out with the overall negative position.

  • I'm posting this a few minutes later and we're already down farther... we may go quite a bit, but if we bounced off of $52, which should have been a pretty strong resistance level, then I would have felt like I missed out.

    It's a small position given the low cost of the ETF, so at least the risk is small. let's see how this plays out.

  • The day opened rather high... higher than we've seen for almost a week... and I thought that we would make an approach to $54, which is where I would have bought short, but no such luck. Following the open we started our decline which continued, pretty well, for the entire day.

    We're now sitting at the near-lows for the day with 20-minutes left before closing. If I was a more aggressive trader, then this may be seen as an opportunity to go long, but I just don't like this general price range for Crude. So... for now... I'm sitting on the sidelines, waiting for the next "great" opportunity to present itself.

  • Really happy with how I handled this this morning, but as my best friend commented right after my sale... "great patience" ...selling at 9:31 :p

    It was a much bigger drop than I could have hoped for this morning, but we were just off the original entry price... not sure how that happened, but must be something to do with how they calculate the ETF prices.

  • Today was a Wednesday-News day and while the actual news itself doesn't matter (to me), it presented an opportunity to add to my short position that I didn't execute. I had planned on adding at $54.30 and we spent quite a lot of time there (and higher) both before the Oil Rigs news and after, but I hesitated for too long and the drop that followed was day-long.

    I had planned on buying/adding a smaller number of shares because of my uncertainty about where we could end-up later in the day. Of course, now seeing the aftermath, it's easy to say that I should have bought, but even if we'd climbed following the news, a smaller position wouldn't matter much in the grand scheme of things (my average cost).

  • It really looked like today was going to be the day of $53 oil, but we spiked in the afternoon "Power Hour"... and we're still making a push toward $54 (isntead) as I write this note.

    Well, for better or worse, I'm going to end the day better off than when I started, so there's that! :p
