Today’s Update


Volatility is picking up. As you can see from the chart above, many ETFs are exceeding their average percentage moves. Also, many appear over extended as the slope of their upward moves are unsustainable. I’ve been waiting for some pullbacks to occur, but they just keep going up. I’ll keep pushing up the stops in my positions to capitalize more, but I’m hoping to see some pullback this week to ride these waves a second time.

 Current Performance


LABU (Biotech) is picking up and helping the overall returns. XIV (Inverse VIX) has been bouncing sideways and testing my $135 stop level as volatility has been picking up short term. DRV (Inverse Real Estate) is also picking up nicely and EPI (India) remains steady. There are so many other ETFs that I sold out of, for a profit, but they keep going up. I need to be more aggressive in my profit targets as this is an extreme bull market.

What I’m Watching


UGLD (Gold) has broken it’s resistance level of $11.50, but is now testing a previous high around $12.80. This is also known as a “double top”. This could be a bullish sign if we break above this level for Gold. Otherwise, a short term downside play is possible, but I’ll wait until it breaks back into the $11.50 – $9.25 channel before I play it.
With so many bull markets going on, there is no reason I see to chance a sideways market with little direction and perhaps a small correctional move to play.
UGAZ (Natural Gas) is showing an early signal of a upside move. I was stopped out in DGAZ (Inverse Natural Gas) as the multi-month down trend failed to continue. But now, we’ve had an extreme PPO turnover in December, we’ve broken all the major moving averages and now we’re just outside the existing downside trend channel.
I’m about to call this a reversal, but I want to see how Monday plays out. If we get a nice spike in volume with a bigger move, then I’ll go for it. When you have a downtrend that has lasted since March, you don’t pull the trigger early on a possible reversal.
Positions I’m Closing

Sell EPI (India) Limit @ $30.50 11.68% or ($2,552 Profit)
Sell EPI (India) Stop Limit @ $28.50 or 4.36% or ($952 Profit)

EPI is still moving steady. No changes to my existing orders for now.

 

Sell XIV (Inverse VIX) Limit @ $150.00 36.36% or ($7,273 Profit)
Sell XIV (Inverse VIX) Stop Limit @ $135 22.73% or ($4,545 Profit)

Intraday volatility is picking up. I cam close to being stopped out at my lower profit level of $135. This coincided with the US short term government shutdown, hopefully next week will bring more calm to the market and a continued move higher for XIV. Keeping my orders the same, a $4,500 profit will be fantastic, but I’d love to see if we can scale this off at $150 for the $7k in profits.

 

 

Sell DRV (Inverse Real Estate) Limit @ $14.00 16.67% or ($1,500 Profit)
Sell DRV (Inverse Real Estate) Stop Limit @ $10.00 16.67% or ($1,500 Loss)

DRN (Real Estate) bounced nicely off the 20-day EMA in purple and is just about below it $20 support level again. This should bode well for my inverse position in DRV (Inverse Real Estate).

Chart and orders for DRV (Inverse Real Estate) almost break even again with the move lower in DRN (Real Estate). I have lots of wiggle room in this trade, so let’s see if the drop in real estate continues.

Sell LABU (Biotech) Limit @ $125.00 20.77% or ($1,355 Profit)
Sell LABU (Biotech) Stop Limit @ $80.00 22.71% or ($1,481 Loss)

Nice recovery from Wednesday and we’re back into profitability. Looking forward to more positive Biotech earnings announcements which should continue to drive this ETF higher.

Today’s Update


Market Snapshot 12-26-17
Sold JDST (Inverse Junior Gold Miners) Stop Limit @ $56.00 20.41% or ($1,311 Loss)
I sent out an intraday update last week stating I was going to exit JDST early. The moves started going larger out of the existing trend channel and with the break below all the moving averages odds were good it wasn’t going to bounce back in my favor so I decided to cut my losses early. As you can see now, it’s continued it’s decline even after my exit.
This does pose a possible opportunity for JNUG (Junior Gold Miners) if it corrects.

Current Performance


performance 12-26-17
Positions continue to grow in value week by week. I am pushing up my stop limit order in EPI (India) since it’s streaking to the upside. It’s due for a correction so I’m not locking in profits just yet, but focusing on minimizing my losses since I’m doing well in other positions.

What I’m Watching


I’ve been patient holding onto my active positions, but two markets which have been forming for months are close to seeing break out moves.
BRZU (Brazil) bounced off it’s support level and is slightly out of it’s existing downtrend. It’s not a sharp reversal, but I’m looking to see if this recovery fails and we fall again. If so I may pick up a small trade in  to take advantage of the continuation of the trend downward.
 
BRZU 12-26-17
DRN (Real Estate)  has been in a massive consolidation pattern all year. It made a strong attempt yesterday to break $24.00, but corrected sharply. Still watching to see if we get a solid breakout above $24.00. We locked in a slightly higher low so there could be buyers loading up. Have to wait and see still.

Positions I’m Closing

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) is making another attempt to break higher again. Crude oil is on the rise and these last two days have shown some strong price movement. We could see this turn profitable this week.

RUSL 12-26-17

Sell EPI (India) Limit @ $30.00 9.85% or ($2,152 Profit)
Sell EPI (India) Stop Limit @ $26.40 or 3.33% or ($728 Loss)

EPI broke it’s resistance level and is on a multi-day tear higher! I’ve moved up my stop to $26.40 to reduce my potential loss but give this some room for a correction.

EPI 12-26-17

Sell SOXL (US Semi Conductors) Stop Limit @ $105.00 22.22% or ($1,500 Loss)

SOXL has fallen slightly, but is still holding it’s trend. If it recovers and makes a new short term high I will push up my stop to lock in guaranteed profits.

SOXL 12-26-17

Sell XIV (Inverse VIX) Limit @ $140.00 27.27% or ($5,455 Profit)
Sell XIV (Inverse VIX) Stop Limit @ $126.50 15.00% or ($3,000 Profit)

No changes to my orders as XIV is still moving higher.

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.

JDST 12-5-17

Positions I’m Closing

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.

EPI 12-5-17
