|Includes:AMZN, BIDU, GLD, Goodrich Corporation (GR), IOC, SINA, V, YOKU

The market struggled this week hold its ground with rising concerns over the financial crisis in Europe.  But, after hearing Fed's comments, which showed increased caution, the market finally buckled.  The selloff came fast, and the market plummeted more than 3% on Wednesday.   We navigated the violent waves carefully and came away another good week!  Here are the closed trades for the week:

Besides the +175% intraday profit on SINA puts and the overnight $90% win on YOKU puts, we also traded fast trades on BIDU, AMZN, and IOC in the Trading Room.  On Friday, as gold and silver tumbled, we added puts on GLD and SLV and scored more intraday doubles:
