  • Putting my "strategy" to practice by averaging in... ...again, in retrospect, I may have been to hurried to put this strategy in-play today given its quick ascent, but time will tell.

  • If it didn't hurt so much after the fact, this would have been really fun to watch. It was one of those days in Oil trading that make you realize that yes, even a commodity, is susceptible to manipulation... at least in the short term and over some range.

    Today was Inventories news day and it was bad... really bad news. Oil took a momentary dive... then an even larger spike... and then dove even lower... ...only to then begin its climb to what would become (with the benefit of hindsight) one of the most rapid climbs for the price of oil in 2017.

  • Really happy with my sell here - just half because I think there may be some more downward pressure before we rise up again and it seems that I'm always kicking myself for getting out too soon.

    As I write this, we're at my previous (original) entry and I thought we were going down then, so why change my mind now? ...we'll see! :)

  • It may still go higher than my buy price, but I'm feeling unusually confident about my short position for the day. It's still only a medium-sized position and if it continues to move against me, I still have room to improve my average cost. We'll see!

  • I'm beginning to wonder whether it's best to always be in... invested, that is. To always have a bet, either long or short, ...at least as it pertains to oil.

    Once I'm in, I seem to feel more confident about my position - for better or worse - and, theoretically, I'll be right about half the time and when I'm wrong the other half the time, I simply average-in to improve my average price/cost.

    I made this buy partly based on my fundamental views on oil over the next month or so, but also to test this question.

  • This isn't a real trade entry... I got lazy a few months back and forgot to enter the actual trade, which left my Journal in a bit of disarray... so this is my attempt to get things sorted and back on track.

    Back in 100% cash and ready to do battle in the markets once again! :p

  • Oil appeared to hit a resistance level at around lunch time and I was no longer certain if it would return to its earlier highs, so I played it safe, resistant my greedy urges, and cashed-out... ready to play again.

    UPDATE: well... it did end-up going up again to 5.02, which was my original target, but it didn't stay there long. The more interesting thing was, however, that the little spike in oil drove HOU up to 5.02, but at oil prices that had previously reflected a HOU price of only 5.01... it was the momentum, apparently. ...or at least from what I could tell of the real time quotes to which I've got access.

  • The outlook for oil changed completely this morning with forecasts looking positive up to $50 per barrel so... my HOD position got really killed. I didn't get a chance to get my new "hedging" strategy in place before the event, so it sucked, but I got into HOU on a dip... or at least what appears to be a dip... and we'll see if I can squeeze out some profits today regardless of what oil chooses to do!

  • Sold with minutes left in the day just to have free $ on Monday morning. Didn't even get the full order of 405 shares filled and could have done much better on the day, but was a bit too greedy this morning, apparently. Oh well. Live to play another day!
