  • Another Stellar Week + August 2011 Monthly Wrap-Up Report: FFIV, MOS, RIMM, AAPL, SLV, APA, FAZ, GLD, YOKU, IOC, WYNN 0 comments
    Sep 4, 2011 10:18 PM | about stocks: MOS, BBRY, AAPL, SLV, APA, FAZ, GLD, YOKU, IOC, WYNN

    We had another stellar week.  We traded with the market bounce early in the week and locked in profits, including a +103% gain on MOS Sept 70 calls.  Then, we sat on cash on Wednesday and Thursday, waiting for the market to make its next move, as I noted in my Tuesday article that, "e might need to see a couple of days of mixed market and wait to see if the above-mentioned resistance levels have turned into support."  On Thursday, the market closed right at support.  Friday's unemployment report sent the market reeling back.  Since we were in cash, we were able to take advantage of the market conditions on Friday, and caught a quick intraday trade, +45%, on the downside with AAPL Sept weekly puts.  Here are the closed trades for the week, adding to a very successful August:
