Today’s Update


Market Snapshot 9-8-17
As I was mentioning in my previous post, I wanted to start taking some of my profitable trades off the table due to the fact we were seeing strong correlations and it could easily reverse as a correlation which it did on Friday. Uncertainty is on the forecast for next week which could create further volatility. XIV (Inverse VIX) may not see much going into next week so I may sell it off even if there are smaller profits, otherwise I’m going to sit and ride it through the volatility wave going into next week.

Performance Update


performance 9-8-17
I’ve taken off all closed positions from my performance page to accurately reflect the current state. I’m still sitting on some profits, but they need to come off the table quick as next week could be a volatile one. RUSL (Russia) and TMF (20+ Year Treasury Bonds) are the ones I want to take off first.
Positions I’m Closing

Sell XIV (Inverse VIX) Limit @ $100.00 17.74% or ($7,687 Profit)
Sell XIV (Inverse VIX) Stop Limit @ $76.50 17.74% or ($1,502 Loss)

XIV 9-8-17

Sell VGK (Europe) Limit @ $60.00 5.26% or ($1,050 Profit)
Sell VGK (Europe) Stop Limit @ $54.40 4.46% or ($910 Loss)

Patience has paid off an VGK is now in the profit zone. I’m going to give it a couple more days to move before moving up my stop to ensure I limit any potential losses.

VGK 9-8-17

 

Sell DGAZ (Inverse Natural Gas) Limit @ $35.00 27.27% or ($1,732 Profit)
Sell DGAZ (Inverse Natural Gas) Stop Limit @ $21.00 23.64% or ($1,501 Loss)

UGAZ (Natural Gas) still continues in it’s sideways movement

UGAZ 9-8-17

Chart and orders in DGAZ (Inverse Natural Gas) showing it’s most opportunistic move in a month. Good chance this could turn profitable and I can push up my stop.

DGAZ 9-8-17

 

Sell TMF (20+ Year Treasury Bonds) Limit @ $23.50 9.81% or ($1,575 Profit)
Sell TMF (20+ Year Treasury Bonds) Stop @ $22.00 2.80% or ($450 Profit)

Still trending to my profit target.

TMF 9-8-17

 

Sell RUSL (Russia) Limit @ $51.00 10.99% or ($893 Profit)
Sell RUSL (Russia) Stop Limit @ $37.00 19.48% or ($1,584 Loss)

Came close to my profit target on Friday, but reversed by the end of the day following a big move lower in Crude Oil. Going to see what happens on Monday. I may tighten up my stop to ensure I don’t take a loss on this trade.

RUSL 9-8-17

Sell UGLD (Gold) Limit @ $13.50 10.20% or ($1,171 Profit)
Sell UGLD (Gold) Stop Limit @ $10.50 or 14.29% or ($1,640 Loss)

Gold trending nicely. I will be holding on this one as a hedge against equities selling off. This is why my stop is so far away.
