Today’s Update


Market Snapshot 2-28-17

Markets are getting spooked, but are they going to stay this way or will tonight’s speech drive this direction further? Tomorrow will be a good precedence for the trading days to come.

Sold RUSS (Inverse Russia) Limit @ $7.00 8.02% or ($686 Profit)

RUSL (Russia) gapped down today filling my order in RUSS (Inverse Russia) along with it. This also signals a clear new downtrend which I want to take advantage of on the first pullback in RUSL (Russia).

Sell TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds) Limit @ $24.35 18.26% or ($1,013 Profit)

Sell TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds) Stop Limit @ $21.75 8.70% or ($935 Loss)

TMV is hovering dangerously low to my stop. I see no reason to give it more leg room since this is a historical support level. If it’s broken then I will have to admit my directional play was incorrect and take the loss.

TMV 2-28-17

Sell EDC (Emerging Markets) Limit @ $75.00 4.90% or ($955 Profit)
Sell EDC (Emerging Markets) Stop Limit @ $66.00 7.69% or ($1,500 Loss)

EDC is on it’s 3rd day lower. It’s clearly out side of it’s trend channel and below the 20-day EMA. After tonights Trump speech, we’ll have to see if this benefits or gets stopped out tomorrow.

EDC 2-28-17

Sell DGAZ (Inverse Natural Gas) Limit @ $8.00 23.08% or ($1,500 Profit)
Sell DGAZ (Inverse Natural Gas) Stop Limit @ $5.00 or 23.08% or ($1,500 Loss)

DGAZ reversed from it’s gap higher yesterday, but it’s still in a sideways trading range. Waiting to see what happens here as well.

Today’s Update


Market Snapshot 2-27-17

Markets were pushing some surprising extremes today. JNUG (Junior Gold Miners) fell like a rock today with no immediate news to substantiate it. It could be a premonition of things to come, but regardless, the move was big enough to stop me out.

I missed the move in LABU (Biotech) because I put in a limit order again instead of an OCO (Order Cancels Order) for a higher price and a lower price. It appears I’d be better off using OCO orders for everything to ensure I get a fill as I’m missing out on big moves that I’m identifying because I’m not putting in the best order type.

LABU 2-27-17

JNUG (Junior Gold Miners) stopped out @ $9.50 for a $1,527 Loss

The purpose of the $9.50 stop loss was in case of a big and unexpected move, but it was also far enough beyond all the normal bullish indicators to prove that I was wrong about the uptrend. Today was either an anomaly or the start of a sharp reversal. President Trump has a State of the Union speech tomorrow which could have dramatic impacts on the markets this week. Gold will either be seen as a safe haven or an unnecessary commodity. I’ll watch carefully at JNUG to see if there are any ways to get back into this.

Sell TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds) Limit @ $24.35 18.26% or ($1,013 Profit)

Sell TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds) Stop Limit @ $21.75 8.70% or ($935 Loss)

TMV 2-27-17

Sell EDC (Emerging Markets) Limit @ $75.00 4.90% or ($955 Profit)
Sell EDC (Emerging Markets) Stop Limit @ $66.00 7.69% or ($1,500 Loss)

EDC pulled up just before hitting my stop today. Now to see if I gave enough wiggle room for this to return to profitability.

TMV 2-27-17

Sell DGAZ (Inverse Natural Gas) Limit @ $8.00 23.08% or ($1,500 Profit)
Sell DGAZ (Inverse Natural Gas) Stop Limit @ $5.00 or 23.08% or ($1,500 Loss)

UGAZ (Natural Gas) had a beautiful gap lower today. Still within the existing down trend, and hopefully will continue to do so. It also broke in a new low which could increase it’s selling pressure which only helps DGAZ (Inverse Natural Gas).

Sell RUSS (Inverse Russia) Limit @ $7.00 8.02% or ($686 Profit)
Sell RUSS (Inverse Russia) Stop Limit @ $5.60 13.58% or ($1,500 Loss)

RUSS (Inverse Russia) did successfully fill today (unlike LABU) with a small pull back enough to get filled and then RUSL (Russia) dropped lower. It closed right on the 100-day EMA in Orange so now to see if that provides support or if we have the momentum to continue to ride this new downtrend lower.

Today’s Update


Market Snapshot 2-24-17

Market bulls are running out of steam. The percentage drops on Friday were more than normal corrections. The 9.29% drop in BRZU (Brazil) just after I sold it is making me through up the caution signals again and stop to look if our trends will continue.

BRZU (Brazil) sold @ $55.00 for a 13.40% or ($1,146 Profit) (Thursday Update)

BRZU sold on Thursday on the open at my original profit target of $55. The major drop in the last two days is close to bringing it back to it’s $45 resistance level. We’ll have to watch this one closely to see if it recovers or if it’s time to play BZQ.

BRZU 2-24-17

Bought to Cover TSLA (Tesla) $245/$220 March 3 Vertical Put Spread @ $1.17 for a $60 Loss (Thursday Update)

After seeing the large drop after earnings, I pulled out of the trade quickly as the trend channel that was holding it up for the past couple of months had closed. I couldn’t rely on the move on Friday to be a determination that the trend would continue so I still feel a small loss was the right move for the trade.

TSLA 2-24-17

Positions I’m opening


Buy LABU (Biotech) Limit @ $43.50 ($6,868 Position Size)
Sell LABU (Biotech) Limit @ $55.00 26.44% or ($2,262 Profit)
Sell LABU (Biotech) Stop Limit @ $34.00 21.84% or ($1,500 Loss)

LABU has corrected from it’s Keltner top and put in a higher low with the move up vs the rest of the markets which were lower. With prices still above all 3 major moving averages and the trend still going up, I’m going to make an attempt to get in on Monday @ $43.50 and ride this existing trend.

LABU 2-24-17

Buy RUSS (Inverse Russia) Limit @ $6.48 ($11,045 Position Size)
Sell RUSS (Inverse Russia) Limit @ $7.00 8.02% or ($686 Profit)
Sell RUSS (Inverse Russia) Stop Limit @ $5.60 13.58% or ($1,500 Loss)

RUSL (Russia) gapped down on Friday with a clear breakout to the downside out of it’s triangle consolidation. This is a good signal that the optimism that drove this higher has now been exhausted.

RUSL 2-24-17

Chart and orders for Monday in RUSS (Inverse Russia)

Putting in a buy order at near what it closed on Friday and my stop order will be hit only if RUSL (Russia) hits a new high.

RUSS 2-24-17

Positions I’m selling


Sell TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds) Limit @ $24.35 18.26% or ($1,013 Profit)

Sell TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds) Stop Limit @ $21.75 8.70% or ($935 Loss)

TMF (20+ Year Treasury Bonds) has been going higher for the last 3 days which is a concern for my position in TMV (Inverse 20+ Year Treasury Bonds). The resistance for TMF is at $20.00 so let’s see if it holds. Regardless, the pattern is still in it’s triangle consolidation, so my position still has a chance to be profitable.

Sell JNUG (Junior Gold Miners) Stop Limit @ $9.50 or 19.83% or ($1,527 Loss)

JNUG has been staying below my entry for the past four days now. It’s still within it’s existing uptrend so I’m not too worried yet. Gold also hit a new short term high which leaves me optimistic.

Sell EDC (Emerging Markets) Limit @ $75.00 4.90% or ($955 Profit)
Sell EDC (Emerging Markets) Stop Limit @ $66.00 7.69% or ($1,500 Loss)

The gap down outside the existing trend channel on Friday is not promising. I’ve set a rather wide stop to allow for possible volatility, so I’m going to wait since one day doesn’t necessarily mean I should get out. The early warning signs are there since many markets fell on Friday.

EDC 2-24-17

Sell DGAZ (Inverse Natural Gas) Limit @ $8.00 23.08% or ($1,500 Profit)
Sell DGAZ (Inverse Natural Gas) Stop Limit @ $5.00 or 23.08% or ($1,500 Loss)

DGAZ is still hanging around my entry, but I still think the large gap above all the major moving averages is the signal for higher highs. Now to wait this out.
