Trading Results 3/3/11

|Includes:BGS, BKS, Coeur Mining, Inc. (CDE), COCO

Frustrating day with interactive brokers.

My carryover with BGS could have been a very good trade for me but very near the open no shares were able to be shorted using interactive brokers. Just about everyone else in the chat room said they had shares available and it wasn’t until the price dropped to about 17.70ish that shares became available. I covered most of the trade but I am still short as of writing. I shorted VRTX april 50 calls with an average of 2.10 and will hold it for at least a week barring a large drop in the price more quickly.
Lastly, I shorted CDE into the close and shorted more in after hours trading. I scalped it to work my way higher as it moved higher into the close and will hold until tomorrow.
BGS – 915
CDE - 9
Today - 925

COCO long
BKS short
VRTX short
