I got that feeling...surprised my pick went as high as it did. I'm out now...trying my damnedest not to get greedy.

Gold below support at $1340 (by my calculations...lol) so it could drop some more. Looking at 1325-1330 to downside if it can't get back above 1340 area.

Refiners ripping. Hope it is a major leg up.

No fill on EXR. Not surprised it held support. Leaving The GTC still out there.

It's never good when management sells large blocks of their own stock.

2 to 4% daily.

Volatility destroyed until after the election.

Sure seems that way. We will see what September does.

I tend to not buy anything based on media. If it is public like that it makes me wonder why and who's playing the opposite.

If you want to follow someone I suggest simpleroptions.com or simplertrading.com

Splitmaster.com is also a very easy and very honest (see all their results including losses on the website) for earnings plays mostly with iron condors.

GPL order never filled

Did buy 2k MUX at $4.33 in reg account and 1250 at $4.33 in Rollover IRA (plan to keep what's in IRA and add to it on lower prices if it happens).

EXR still hasn't filled. I don't expect it will below 81. Looking at getting into DWTI if it holds. Should bounce back above 120 I expect.

Gold just broke $1340 again...should get a decent little run up.

Put my whole play money account into SGOL at beginning of the year, at $105. Currently trading a bit over $130. LOL, in my mind, this was a hedge against a stock market I thought was shaky, turns out the market has performed well, but my SGOL hedge has done well too.

Considering cashing out some SGOL and buying some put options on IBM. The company is still fundamentally stuck in the quicksand, but the stock has ridden the market wave from a low of $118 this year to $162 today, a buck below 52-week high. October puts selling at $4.50 @ $160/share. January puts selling at 7.90 @ $160/share. I'd appreciate comments on this from any folks here who like to play the options game.
