11/7/12 9:17A ET: { Results Update } This morning, we also sold our BAC shares for a gain of 23.6%. http://bit.ly/t7mrwo
This morning, we exited all of our profitable stock positions with exception of BTU.
Agreed wecap! :-) I felt it was prudent to protect our gains today. I need time to see things play out.

11/7/12 8:57A ET: { Results Update } This morning, we locked in a small gain of 3.8% on CLNE. http://bit.ly/t7mrwo
Will you still be short bonds?
I'm reviewing our TBT position as well. That's a tough call right now.

11/7/12 8:53A ET: { Results Update } Yesterday, we locked in gains of 6.7% on PSX. http://bit.ly/t7mrwo
why didn't we load up on short-term coal puts as a hedge?
11/7/12
should of did that, bought more psx. I think it is breaking out from short consildation
11/1/12
Justin M. Hall
11/1/12 10:42A ET: { Think Energy. } We reentered a position in PSX this morning just under $47. Last $47.06

I know I know

If I had the cashflow I would. Im about to make a major investment that will give me financial freedom for life.

CH, I am looking for JCP to bounce off its 100-day at/near $24.

Doubtful...
It's time to move forward.
10/26/12
Justin M. Hall
10/26/12 3:55P ET: { Heads Up } We reentered a long position in JCP this afternoon >$25.50. Q3 results are due 11/7/12.
10/27/12
I like the JCP trade more as a mirror to SHLD and a retest of recent highs

Justin M. Hall
10/26/12 3:18P ET: { Week Before Election } Heading into next week, investors should consider entering positions in BAC, BTU, and PSX today.
10/26/12
ayup on both counts. 3x etfs are always fun - even before the decay factor
10/26/12
Justin M. Hall
10/26/12 1:10P ET: { Heads Up } After hitting an intra-day low of $9.05, investors might consider buying (or adding to) positions in BAC.
Buddaus, you're over thinking it. There are NO absolutes with investing. In the months ahead, BAC will perform well. Trust me on this.
As Hurricane Sandy approaches the East Coast, DJIA futures are down 40 points. Sit tight and ride out the storm.

gwinsto: To be fair, and to hold yourself to your own standards, you should say, "how will you fair if he loses?".

10/24/12 2:06P ET: { Natural Gas for Transportation } In the coming weeks, I'm looking for CLNE to trade somewhere b/t $10 and $11.
In that price range (b/t $10 and $11), we will seriously consider initiating long positions in CLNE, shares and/or calls.

10/24/12 11:26A ET: { Romney v. Obama } Rasmussen Swing State Poll => Romney 50% v. Obama 45% http://bit.ly/QaPAIF
Bildar, disregard my comment on 100% confidence levels. Honestly, I misinterpreted or misread the results under North Carolina. My fault.
Until proven wrong, I continue to believe - based on track record & methodology - that Rasmussen will be the most accurate pollster in 2012.
10/24/12
Justin M. Hall
10/24/12 11A ET: { Romney v. Obama } Rasmussen Daily Tracking (national) => Romney 50% v. Obama 46% http://bit.ly/uTYQcP
Thanks Rialto. Despite our differences, I like Bildar. He's a good man. Like you, I also voted early - exactly one month ago. :-)
10/24/12 1:15P ET: Rasmussen => Romney 48% v. Obama 50% in Nevada (+/- 4.5%) http://bit.ly/PTmPOl
10/23/12
Justin M. Hall
10/23/12 1:07P ET: { Heads Up } Before breaking out above $10, BAC will likely revisit $9 (+/-) between now and Election Day.
GDP should begin to tick back up in Q4. The broad market sell-off won't last. Investors should anticipate a Romney Rally in November.
I'm not predicting the future. Let's see how it plays out. BAC remains a buy while trading under $10.
10/23/12
Justin M. Hall
10/23/12 12:47P ET: { Think Energy. } Today, we initiated positions in BTU & PSX. I like BTU at or below $28 and PSX at or below $44.
10/24/12
in at 37.7
I think UGAZ will continue to be a smart bet. Play it smart and protect your capital. Be sure to set a sell-stop around $34 (+/-).
10/23/12
Justin M. Hall
10/23/12 10:08A ET: { Natural Gas } This morning, we entered a new position UGAZ again just under $39.
11/1/12 12:30P ET: { Heads Up } Hate doing this, but I've reduced my trailing stop on UGAZ to $30 from $34.
There's no need to incur a loss on Natural Gas right now. We will be adding to UGAZ along the way.
10/22/12
Justin M. Hall
10/22/12 12:10P ET: { Results Update } This morning, we exited UGAZ at $42.50 with a modest gain of 3.7%+. http://bit.ly/t7mrwo
Good call. At 38.33 now. What happened?
Honestly, I'd say there are just more sellers than buyers today. :-) Looking out longer-term, Natural Gas will likely head higher.
10/19/12
Justin M. Hall
10/19/12 2:06P ET: { Heads Up } DIA tested its 50-day MA this afternoon. At this level, I'm looking for DIA to rebound. Keep an eye on BAC.
10/23/12
Justin - see where the DJ-30 reached today - look above to my call
Che, nice call my friend! :-) I'm paying attention.
10/19/12
Justin M. Hall
10/19/12 1:06P ET: { BAC Remains a Buy <$10 } While the DIA is down (-1.24%), BAC is up +0.37%. Long-Term View => BAC Is On the Road to $20.
10/19/12
justin, youll love this! http://bit.ly/OONFLB
I actually watched the Al Smith dinner last night. Romney was very funny! While the President was not as funny, he did a nice job as well.
10/19/12
Justin M. Hall
10/19/12 11:55A ET: { Watch Natural Gas! } Longer-term, UGAZ likely heading to $60; UNG could top out at/near $30 by year-end (2012).
10/19/12
Thanks, not sure if I'm lucky for keeping one put or unlucky for having sold the other 6 earlier in the week LOL.

Justin M. Hall
10/18/12 3:06P ET: {Heads Up} We reentered JCP this afternoon. Near-term, shares are likely heading back to the 200-day MA, at/near $30.
10/19/12 11:34P ET: Stopped out for a small loss. We will revisit this trade in the future.
10/19/12: This morning, our JCP position was stopped out for a 2% loss. http://bit.ly/t7mrwo

Justin M. Hall
10/18/12 2:36P ET: { Results Update } We decided to exit APRI today with a nominal gain. http://bit.ly/t7mrwo
Near-term, APRI is likely to head south, possibly as low as $2.25 or so. We may revisit this stock again at lower levels.
11/20/12
looks like you made a good call.. Is this now the time to reenter? Abbot is now saying a first half 2013 intro for Vitaros in Canada
10/18/12
Justin M. Hall
10/18/12 11:23A ET: { Pay Attention! } BAC is setting up to break through $10 in the coming days. You might consider an entry here <$9.50.
One thing you need to watch is long-term rates. Check out either TBT or SBND. Pick one. I own long-term positions in TBT.
Operation Twist ends at year-end (12/31/12). Afterwards, look for *Long-Term* rates to tick up sharply. TBT and SBND will benefit.
10/17/12
Justin M. Hall
10/17/12 2:00P ET: { RESULTS UPDATE } Sell-Stop Triggered => We exited JCP with a modest 2.7%. gain. http://bit.ly/t7mrwo
10/18/12
I hear ya buddy.... No worries
10/18/12
Another strong jobs number today (insert sarcasm and disgust here)
10/17/12
Justin M. Hall
10/17/12 1:37P ET: { RESULTS UPDATE } We exited our BTU shares today with a gain of 6.8%. http://bit.ly/t7mrwo
As they say, you have to pick and choose your battles carefully. Most of the positions I manage are held long-term. :-)
I do appreciate the compliment my friend. The journey to this point has not always been easy.
10/16/12
Justin M. Hall
10/16/12 9:50A ET: { Heads Up } Get your mind around the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DIA) at 15,000, possibly by year-end (2012).

10/15/12 9:09P ET: { Romney v. Obama } Today, Mitt Romney Lost the Election (Josh Barro, Bloomberg 9/17/12) http://bloom.bg/V3dZW5
:-) Have a good night.
If Obama could debate and blame the media for his troubles as well as Gingrich this would have been over last year. Good night dudes.

10/13/12 11:58P ET: {BAC, JPM} Regulators Preparing for Romney Win. The CTFC delay is telling. http://bloom.bg/TpS9oD
RS and I are starkly different investors, who happened to cross roads on BAC. :-)
10/15/12
Great move in BAC today :-)

Justin M. Hall
10/13/12 11:50P ET: { Romney v. Obama } Regulators Preparing for Romney Win. The CTFC's delay is telling. http://bloom.bg/TpS9oD
Romney should win debate Tuesday as Obama is a lousy debater. Buy some UNG or UGAZ today?
Joe, I think UGAZ and UNG are both smart bets right here - along with BAC, BTU, and TBT. Good observation my friend!
