  • We got a wicked sweet & tasty gap down... I never get a gap down! Sold the portion from the $54 spike on Friday, but kept the majority of the position as I have a feeling I'll do even better today.

    But... if I don't, then I have fresh profits with which to play the bounce that's also quite possible.

    Btw... this shows as a 0.00% gain because of my averaging buy-ins. On a trade-basis, it was about 3.5%... any way you cut it, it's a nice start to the week!

  • The news, apparently, is that OPEC is doing as they said they would and everyone thinks that's wonderful, so Oil is up 2% today... another opportunity to average in... for better or worse :p

  • We were really expecting a tasty tank after yesterday's surprise rebound, but the market seems to want to move up yet again today, so I'm in... yet again.

  • The EPIC drop that we were hoping for didn't materialize, so I took a few extra profitable $ off the table in anticipation of a possible bounce tomorrow. With a short position still open, I'm prepared either way for what Tuesday brings... so bring it on Oil!

  • Sold this half at my average cost (break-even) for the 4-part position that I had built-up. It makes up for the "loss" that I took last week as I averaged-up my cost. Really happy with the trade today... so far. As I write this, oil has edged up a little bit over my exit and if it continues to climb I've got fresh cash+profits with which to add to my still open short position.

    ...if it continues to fall, of course, that same open short position lets me benefit from that as well. Win-win? :)

  • This was technically a profit since I purchased these specific shares as a swing trade at a price of 9.16, but with my outstanding/open shares my average cost is still below this sale price. Of course... what matters is that there's more $ in the piggy bank :) My Journal, instead, shows this as having moved-up my average cost... so my next sell will be all the sweeter!

    What I'm most happy about with this trade was that I applied my lessons from previous trades and got out so that the cash would be available for the next swing... which may happen with news today at 1pm EST. I didn't get the best possible exist price, but I did get out before news. If the news sends oil lower still, then I still have my other shares outstanding ...and if we spike again, then I'll just play the next swing the same.

    Everything is an opportunity!

  • We had seen oil above the $54 momentarily the other day, but it was for just a few minutes. As I'm writing this, it seems to be the case today as well, but time will tell.

  • I'm writing this entry the day after... and I can see that Oil has just continued to rise. Although it certainly stings to see that I'm down, I'm not yet sure if it was a mistake to play it the way that I did.

    I still have funds available to play this spike to near-highs so yes... I'll be adding to my shorts when the markets open... assuming that the price holds at these levels (or returns to them).
