  • 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

  • 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.
