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.

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.

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 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.

Today’s Update


market snapshot 9-29-17

 

Markets are making a strong rally opening up more trades. Energy is still relatively flat, but money continues to be put into ERX (Energy Exploration Companies).

 

Performance Update


performance 9-29-17
Gold continues it’s decline heavily and I was filled for a better price in YINN (China) due to the opening gap down on Thursday. I’m looking to add two new positions which will hopefully offset the small draw down. Otherwise today was a nice recovery day and I’m hoping to sell off some other winners soon to offset UGLD (Gold) which continues in it’s decline.

What I’m Watching


UWT (Crude Oil) – Still sits at the $17.00 resistance level. Watching for a break above higher.

Buy 80 LABU (Biotech) Limit @ $80.00 ($6,400 Position Size)
Buy 61 LABU (Biotech) Stop @ $85.65 ($5,224 Position Size)

when filled…

Sell LABU (Biotech) Limit @ $100.00
Sell LABU (Biotech) Stop Limit @ $61.25

LABU has broken out of it’s sideways consolidation and remains above all the major moving averages. It closed on a new high today so I’m ready to take this continuation trade for a possible move higher. I have a very wide stop on this because this historically can be a volatile stock. It would take a lot to break the $61.25 level and if this is an early break out move, reaching at $100 price target shouldn’t be an issue.

Sell RUSL (Russia) Limit @ $58.00
Sell RUSL (Russia) Stop Limit @ $45.00

RUSL continues higher in it’s existing trend channel. I sold another trade in RUSL recently for a profit and now with the new high I’m ready to trade this again higher. My stop is where the next logical support level will be which would also break the 20-day EMA in purple and fall outside the existing trend channel.

RUSL 9-29-17

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 continues to head lower, clearly it will make an attempt to test my stop. We’re just below some key historical support levels so we’ll see if any buyers come in late or not.

UGLD 9-29-17

Sell EDC (Emerging Markets) Limit @ $133.00 22.02% or ($1,663 Profit)
Sell EDC (Emerging Markets) Stop Limit @ $91.00 16.51% or ($1,247 Loss)

Finally a recovery after many days in a row heading lower. What I really like is the gap opening higher and higher close. This is a nice sign of a possible recovery. It’s right back in the trend channel as well.

EDC 9-29-17

Sell 70 SOXL (US Semi Conductors) Limit @ $126.50 20.38% or ($1,505 Profit)
Sell 70 SOXL (US Semi Conductors) Stop Limit @ $84.00 20.38% or ($1,505 Loss)

SOXL closed on a new high. If there is a bullish move on Monday I will push up my stop to $107 to ensure some kind of profit on the trade.

SOXL 9-29-17

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 still continues on it’s mysterious run higher. It’s not longer breaking the Keltner Channel top, only because in this case it’s a 7-day moving average and it’s no longer accelerating at it’s previous pace. This is an obvious sign of a slow down, now to see if the sellers will come in and take some profits driving the price down.

ERX 9-29-17

Chart and orders for ERY (Inverse Energy Exploration Companies) 

Still waiting for the reversal.

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

Sitting near a break even.

TMF 9-29-17


Sell XIV (Inverse VIX) Limit @ $100.00 5.26% or ($500 Profit)

XIV in a very positive move higher. I could see a quick fill for profit as early as next week at this rate.

XIV 9-29-17

Sell YINN (China) Limit @ $33.35 16.81% or ($1,500 Profit)
Sell YINN (China) Stop Limit @ $23.75 16.81% or ($1,500 Loss)  

Filled yesterday on the nice gap lower only to be traded to a nice 3.34% move higher today! So far so good!
