  1. Rolled FSLR puts lower. Keeping a full position for now.


  2. /OS Sold 1/3 FSLR puts smiley


  3. FSLR – I'm still short some FSLR shares thanks to a Pstas post.


  4. Albo- glad to be of service. Reduced and rolled out the original position from March and made up some of the drawdown so good with that. Will gladly accept more if it comes. 


  5.  Advanced Micro Devices, Raymond James Financial and Alexandria Real Estate Equities replaced Urban Outfitters, Frontier Communications and First Solar, respectively, in the S&P 500 ahead of the open Monday. The three displaced stocks went into the S&P MidCap 400.

    Will cover 1/2 today.  Close stops on the second half.


  6. Sold those extra TZA from last week.


  7. Almost full position now on X puts. Nice increase today.


  8. GS- rolled down and sold the extra puts from last week. Also trimmed TZA


  9. COF – rolled down half of COF puts


  10. Great trade, Scott !


  11. thx albo. one of the few that has gone all the right way from opening. :-) easier, too, when whole markets are dropping.  Knew they would because dropped my SQQQ and TZA hedges on Friday. <roll>


  12. Guys, this is not really the time to reduce puts too much. I know I sold some TZA, but that is because I have a huge position and added even more last week. We have been very patient.


  13. Opt- would you add anything here or wait for a bounce or perhaps we need some follow through tomorrow before making any moves? 


  14. http://seekingalpha.com/article/4056859-must-glu-mobile-around-2?isDirectRoadblock=false

    Someone actually bullish on GLUU.  Hard to believe.  Opt what are your thoughts around this level ?

    Thanks.


  15. X – got in small with them this morning.. nice :-)


  16. Pstas, I have a ton of puts so I would not add anything right now. Once/If we break 1340 on RUT, then it will be time to add puts on any bounces.


  17. GLUU-There is HUGE resistance between $2.15 and $2.25. With the 50, the 200 and the bottom of the huge gap. Once it gets in that gap, then I would look at it.


  18. Started buying CMG calls


  19. VIX up 10%. Let's see some fear in this market.


  20. Full position in MU puts now. Rolling X puts lower and selling some but keeping a full position.


  21. Fear- yeah, bought a bit of UVXY the other day just for fun. 


  22. Patience- this sums it up :)


  23. Haha


  24. 1340 is the big one today


  25. FSLR breaking support at $28.60?


  26. Been buying some Silver Futures. Not for everyone…


  27. you can also play SLW


  28. CMG acting well. Almost full on the calls.


  29. Opt – Great call on CMG !


  30. Well, we failed to break 1340 :-(


  31. Added back some TZA


  32. MU- earnings; damn, not paying attention. 


  33. Arrrrggghhh. Not lucky this time.


  34. We need an alert system for earnings. I will look for one today.


  35. Shorting /ES just for a day trade.


  36. Will cover 1/2 of the ES short before the vote, and let the rest run.


  37. Covered 1/4. Nice…


  38. Covered 1/2


  39. All out. 


  40. Booked that profit. Market might bounce as there is no more uncertainty. 


  41. Short /ES could not resist ;-)
