  • Found My Weakness

    When the stock market opened this morning I was totally focused on unloading GME, hopefully with a small profit. Well, lo and behold, GME opened up and I watched it climb up to $33.57, but only for a microsecond then started its slow descent. I had ample opportunity to unload this stock but I stood staring at it as it declined into the red for the day. Well this is (one of)​ my weakness(es), not sticking to my game plan.


    Disclosure: I am long SCTY, UNXL, DUST, NUGT, FXEN, GME, MYGN, WLT.

    Additional disclosure: Covered calls

  • Feel Like I Shouldn't Have Gotten Out Of Bed

    The stock market started out on a real downer and a couple of my trades went sour today. But by the end of the day I was only $100 down and I'm in a good position for next week (I believe).​


    Disclosure: I am long SCTY, UNXL, DUST, NUGT, FXEN, GME.

  • Finally A Good Day

    My existing covered call positions were up about $600 today​ while my day's trading activity broke even. The majority of the profits were in the first two covered call positions involving SCTY and UNXL. SCTY rose 5% today, putting this covered call solidly in the black.
