Friday Trades

During large market drops money goes to “fear” assets such as gold, USD, and oil

IN
DBO – ratio long calendar strangle (1/5) to the long side
GLD – long strangle ( 1/1)
SDS – long. Inversely tracks the SPX. Holding until market strength returns.
UUP – when the public takes money out of the market they put it into what they consider safer assets such as cash
VIX – I anticipate the VIX (fear index that calculates volatility in the market) will continue to go up into next week
CME – I found a good bargain on one of my favorite stocks during the dip so I added to the position
ROVI – This is a stock I have been watching for a good entry for a long time and today it hit my buy level
FRX – This is another stock I have been waiting to enter

OUT
TUP – held very poor strength breaking below support levels so I decided to take the loss and move on
CME – Took profit on CME PUT protection I put on recently

Friday’s Strategy

Will look for an entry in DB around the 50 ema and will probably hold for about a week.

There will likely be a continuation move up in FRX so I will look for an entry in the morning and hold until next week.

OC entry would be a continuation move trade similar to FRX.  This is a second entry candidate since it has broken out of it’s previous channel pattern.

PRGO had a strong move up today and the stochastics are just now starting to turn up.  I will keep a close eye on it in the morning but I am not extremely eager to chase this one down.

FMX is at a good price level but it doesn’t look like a good entry can be made this week.

INTC showed weakness today but the price level is holding strong to the 200 ema.  Should get out of JANs and add FEBs if Intel doesn’t breakdown below the 200 ema.

Watching: LVS, NRG, CME
