Today’s Update


Market Snapshot 12-5-17
US Markets continue to move through a sector rotation and corrections are abound. After much waiting, I was filled on XIV (Inverse VIX) with a big intraday drop to cause it to fill at $110.00 and now JNUG (Junior Gold Miners) has broken a key support level.

 

 

Current Performance


performance 12-5-17
Performance is steady on the rise with RUSL (Russia) and EPI (India) both in a drawdown, but they haven’t been stopped out yet. UWT (Crude Oil) is moving higher which should help RUSL (Russia) and of course XIV (Inverse VIX) is moving higher as volatility remains low for the time being.

Positions I’m Opening


Order Cancels Order
Buy 115 JDST (Inverse Junior Gold Miners) Limit @ $69.00 ($7,935 Position Size)
Buy 88 JDST (Inverse Junior Gold Miners) Stop @ $73.00 ($6,424 Position Size)

when filled…

Sell JDST (Inverse Junior Gold Miners) Limit @ $90.00
Sell JDST (Inverse Junior Gold Miners) Stop Limit @ $56.00

As I mentioned in my previous post I’ve been watching for a confirmed break below $14.50 and we saw that today. It was a large enough move that shows me we have a new downtrend that I can possibly take advantage of.

JNUG 12-5-17

Chart and Orders for JDST (Inverse Junior Gold Miners)

Putting in an OCO (Order cancel Order) to ensure I get a fill since JNUG/JDST can be quite volatile and break out fast. I’m putting my stop below the previous low to give this room to move as usual.

Sell RUSL (Russia) Limit @ $58.00 9.39% or ($931 Profit)
Sell RUSL (Russia) Stop Limit @ $45.00 15.13 or ($1,500 Loss)

RUSL (Russia) has rebounded slightly after nearly stopping me out. With Crude Oil showing good potential this may be what I need to bring RUSL (Russia) back into the green.

RUSL 12-5-17

Sell EPI (India) Limit @ $30.00 9.85% or ($2,152 Profit)
Sell EPI (India) Stop Limit @ $25.25 or 7.54% or ($1,648 Loss)

EPI has reversed slightly after setting a higher low. This is still good news. I’m far from my stop and we haven’t taken out the previous low which bounced off the 100-day EMA in Orange. Now to wait and see if we can break my entry of $27.31.

Sell RUSL (Russia) Stop Limit @ $45.00 15.13 or ($1,500 Loss)

RUSL has recovered slightly bouncing off the 100-day EMA in Orange and may be on the way back to profitability for me.

Nice two day recovery in EPI which should bode well considering I have a wide stop. Just need to wait this out and let the upward trend continue.

Today’s Update


Market Snapshot 10-23-17

Markets globally are looking at a slight downturn. Now the magnitude of what this will be is completely unknown, but not surprising. We have been breaking all time highs many times this month and some kind of correction is certainly due. Volatility spiked today causing a decent 3.14% drop in XIV (Inverse VIX). If we see this happen again tomorrow then we can assume there is profit taking occurring at a minimum.

For me, the real sign will be when SOXL (US Semi Conductors) starts to turn down. It’s the one internal US market that hasn’t lost momentum. The US market is usually last to move, but it’s clear global markets are shedding some profits which will drag the US down eventually.

Performance Update


performance 10-23-17
3 of my positions actually went down today, but it was ERY (Inverse Energy Exploration Companies) that benefitted. It’s my largest holding as well, so dollar-wise it’s holding up against the bearish moves of my remaining portfolio. I wouldn’t conclude that it’s a perfect uncorrelated asset, but I’m going to leave this in here since it’s benefitting from the downward global market moves.

What I’m Watching


SOXL (US Semi Conductors) continues to rise while every other US market declined or is running flat. Since I have liquidated many of my positions, I may look at a short term play in SOXS (Inverse US Semi Conductors) as this has been a rather stretched move and the rest of the markets are signaling lower moves ahead.
SOXL 10-23-17
UGAZ (Natural Gas) has been in decline for some time and broke through a key support level which is now being tested. There is an opportunity if it breaks through this resistance level for an upside move.

Positions I’m Opening


Buy XIV (Inverse VIX) Limit @ $100.00 ($12,000 Position Size)
Sell XIV (Inverse VIX) Limit @ $112.50 12.5% or ($1,500 Profit)
Sell XIV (Inverse VIX) Stop Limit @ $87.50 12.50% or ($1,500 Loss)

Sell ERY (Inverse Energy Exploration Companies) Limit @ $13.00 10.26% or ($1,815 Profit)
Sell ERY (Inverse Energy Exploration Companies) Stop Limit @ $11.00 6.70% or ($1,185 Loss)

ERX is almost at a new low. It’s close to breaking below $28.00 which would mean substantial profits. At this point, I’m going to wait. With the global markets all turning lower today, I have to at least give this a chance to correct more in my favor.

Sell TMF (20+ Year Treasury Bonds) Stop Limit @ $19.70 or ($1,025 Loss)

Bonds are usually up when equities are down and today we saw that particular move. Small recovery today in TMF, but a long way to go still.

Sell LABU (Biotech) Limit @ $100.00 15.67% or ($826 Profit)
Sell LABU (Biotech) Stop Limit @ $61.25 or ($1,537 Loss)

LABU continues to decline on it’s multi-day bearish move. This could be the canary in the coal mine signaling what the rest of the US market will be doing soon as this is leading the way lower.

LABU 10-23-17

Sell RUSL (Russia) Limit @ $58.00 9.39% or ($931 Profit)
Sell RUSL (Russia) Stop Limit @ $45.00 15.13 or ($1,500 Loss)

RUSL has declined but is now testing the lower trend channel. Now to see if it breaks down even further.
