  • This was a tough call this morning. We got a nice size gap-down, but I was hoping for a bit deeper (of course). I can very well see us climbing back up to $54 before we see the "deeper" that I want (if we see it at all, that is), so I sold at a very generous price (I think). Not remotely greedy by my standards. Let's see how it plays out now.

  • If I had sold at the moment that we opened, I could have done better by a few cents/share, but I just wasn't feeling the rapid ascent we experience and took my rather nice profit off the table. I'll add again to my short position if we bounce high enough this morning, but I do see a further decline today... hopefully towards the neighborhood of $53/barrel.

  • We'll see if it was the right decision or not, but I didn't want to miss the tank that I hope will come for a few pennies of greediness this morning.

    I fully see the possibility of testing new highs after the news, but I'll just add some more to the position. I went in light since we didn't really re-test the opening highs as I thought we might. Let's see... 1 minute to news now!

  • I sold my purchase from the upper $54s just before yesterday's close and, of course, because I did so we had one of the most spectacular gap-downs come this morning. After that, the trading day was one of the quietest that we've seen recently.

    I had a lot of time to think about whether to exit some of my position for the jump that I thought we'd see today and I'm writing this the morning after... on Thursday, so that gap-up that I anticipated has most certainly materialized. It now looks like we might open at or near $55. I'll definitely be adding, but wow!

    ...should be an interesting trading day!

  • Was VERY Tempted to hold, but got some good advice and sold. I thought that the "resistance" level was lower than we actually stayed for the better part of the afternoon, but I need to stop convincing myself that the resistance is elsewhere when the market is telling me (showing me) where it is.

    My best friend gave me some sound advice (he actually said he was just reminding me of my own approach/rules), and I got out. We'll see if it's for the best (in terms of profit), but I feel good about the decision tonight.

  • Presidents day in the US and Family Day here in Canada left us out in the could while other markets took Oil back up to its highs of the past year touching as high as $54.99 as of this post/trade.

    My plan this morning was to get in right at the open expecting a pull back, but managed to talk myself into being "patient". I missed a subsequent $0.40 drop that I realistically could have cashed, but that drop was short lived and we I ultimately bought (added to my shorts) a little better than I could have originally. So I guess the patience was worth it.

    Expecting a possible pop above $55 today, I didn't go in as heavy with today's add as I had originally considered doing. But... at least I've added in case we do get the drop I ultimately hope for from these heights!

  • We BARELY touched $53 right at the open, but I didn't sell... though I don't think I would have even gotten executed it was so quickly moving back up. My patience was paid off, however, by a return to just below (in the $52.90s) just now and I managed to sell at an oil price of $52.95.

  • The day started out with a fast climb and it almost seemed like we were going to end-up re-testing $54 today, but a surprise "tank" late in the afternoon took us to lows we haven't seen in a week below $53. I missed that ride down, but just now we bumped back up, so I took another bite at the apple. We'll see if it tastes sweet :)

  • The spike on bad news was a great opportunity and my buddy Gabiwan helped encourage me to play this smart (i.e. not greedy) and get out just as quickly as I got in. I thought we might head down to the 52.80s, but got out at $52.95 (oil price), which ended up being just about the bottom before it climbed-up over $53 again as of writing this post. Great trade and helped with the trade-withdrawal from yesterday.

  • I missed the opportunity to add yesterday (no trades yesterday - I know :p) but today's spike on the news, which was horrible by the way, gave me another bit at the proverbial apple. For better or worse!

    Should be an interesting day regardless.
