Today’s Update


 

Markets closed strong on Friday with almost all green across the board. This is only helping a majority of my positions, and since I’m loaded up I’ll continue to ride my current trades out.

 

Current Performance


My portfolio continues to see increased gains on a weekly basis. ERY (Inverse Energy Exploration Companies) went negative due to a big rally in energy prices, but I’m happy with most everything else. Just waiting to see which hit my profit targets now.

Today’s Update


 

Markets saw intraday volatility as the FOMC minutes were released, a bullish sentiment but still mostly red for the day.

XIV (Inverse VIX) has been delisted, and I’ll look elsewhere for possible volatility ETF’s to trade, but thoroughly read through the prospectus about accelerated termination events.

Current Performance


Portfolio performance is holding steady. EPI (India) is taking a small drawdown, and SPXL (S&P 500) has pulled back. I got a great fill with an opening gap lower in YINN (China) which is working in my favor. Everything else is still working.

I am pushing up my profit target in TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds) today as a result of the big move higher it saw today.

Sell TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds) Stop Limit @ $17.80 15.36% or ($1,512 Loss)

TMF dropped solidly today and continues it’s downtrend. I am going to keep pushing up my profit target in TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds) to try and continue to ride this trend lower.

Sell ERY (Inverse Energy Exploration Companies) Stop Limit @ $7.00 34.2% or ($1,444 Loss)

Today’s Update


 

Mild finish on the markets with the upcoming 3-day trading weekend. Tuesday’s open will see if we’re going to continue this strong come back from the sharp corrections we’ve seen.

Current Performance


My position in EPI (India) pulled back into the negative, but the other two positions are still holding strong. Looking at this I’m looking not to let my SPXL (S&P 500) position go into the negative so I’m pushing up the stop on that one. The others I’m leaving as is since they are still near my entry.

Positions I’m Opening


Buy 136 YINN (China) Limit @ $40.00 ($5,440 Position Size)
Sell 136 YINN (China) Limit @ $54.00
Sell 136 YINN (China) Stop Limit @ $29.00

YINN is making such a huge come back. SPXL (S&P 500) have already established their move. We’ve broken the previous major high so I’m looking to get in now with a profit target at the previous $54.00 high with a wide stop all the way down to where this corrected to in the first place. I like my chances of profitability on this trade as a result of it’s strong rebound momentum.

Positions I’m Closing


Sell TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds) Limit @ $23.00 9.37% or ($922 Profit)
Sell TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds) Stop Limit @ $17.80 15.36% or ($1,512 Loss)

TMF is making a small corrective pullback, but the trend still remains down which is what I want.

Chart and orders for TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds) 

Sell EPI (India) Limit @ $30.00  9.09% or ($1,817 Profit)
Sell EPI (India) Stop Limit @ $25.75 6.36% or ($1,272 Loss)

Big gap lower on Friday causing the price to dip below my entry. It’s still within it’s upward trend channel so there is optimism for this trade still.

Sell ERY (Inverse Energy Exploration Companies) Limit @ $15.00 41.38% or ($1,756 Profit)
Sell ERY (Inverse Energy Exploration Companies) Stop Limit @ $7.00 34.2% or ($1,444 Loss)

ERX is drifting lower again, looks like it should drop below the lower $28.00 channel, but still need to wait for this to play out.

Chart and Orders for ERY (Inverse Energy Exploration Companies)

Sell SPXL (S&P500 ) Limit @ $50.00 19.62% or ($2,050 Profit)
Sell SPXL (S&P500 ) Stop Limit @ $33.00 .48% or ($50 Profit)
SPXL has made such a strong run, that I don’t want to let it correct potentially below my original entry. Thus I’m pushing up my stop to ensure I take something off the table. Leaving my target at $50.00, but with so many days higher, I’m expecting some kind of pullback before it can reach those levels.
Sell UWT (Crude Oil) Limit @ $33.00 26.20% or ($1,384 Profit)
Sell UWT (Crude Oil) Stop Limit @ $18.75 28.30% or ($1,495 Loss)
UWT filled for my higher price so the trade is in play. Below are the profit target and stop orders. Keeping stops extremely wide considering the recent volatility.
