  1. Sold WWAV June20 32.50C for .60 this morning. Was called out on my OIH from last week netting .9% for 4 days. I’m sitting this week out on OIH and everything else in general. Not comfortable opening new positions right now and I’m going to focus on my other positions and hedge or sell accordingly.

  2. My limit buy on RIOM executed at $1.65 giving me an average buy price of $1.92. I now have a 0.8 position and anytime RIOM wants to begin moving up is OK with me.

  3. Tom – maybe together we can will RIOM upwards. It is the biggest loser in my portfolio, down almost 19%. But, I do believe a balanced portfolio should have some sort of mining, PM exposure. My pick is RIOM.

  4. My 87 SND options will definitely get called on Friday for a 9% gain. Not planning on buying or selling anything this week. Watching LNG for a new entry

  5. I bought TBT (inverse treasury ETF) today at 61.72. This is an ETF I have owned before. Mentioned on cnbc and I was surprised to see how far it had fallen. Essentially, this tracks my belief that interest rates will begin to move back up (same reason I bought LNC last month).

      • Tom – I am always nervous about leveraged ETFs. I am looking for a 5% gain. I am comfortable as I do believe the overall bias is higher rates, but in a stock market crash or some sort of “event”, there could certainly be a flight to safety n
