3 Down, 1 More To Go - Weeks That Is

|Includes: AK Steel Holding Corp (AKS), BB, CLF, ENDP, GPRO, SHLDQ
Summary

That guy with the horns really did me a solid.

Too bad I can't sell him anything else.

.

So much happening. Lets eat desert first! (I've been sleeping on this pillow all week!)

Trades:

Now that's looking like a solid month. Nothing like January, but way better than Feb or March. I'm actually decently positive for the year finally @ +24.33%. 

A little better than those idiot hedge fund people even with SHLD's wild ride this past 2 weeks:

What was that all about?

Here's what happened on the trades I had going into the week:


Going into next week I currently just have this on the calendar:

Not much happening at the moment, but I'll add two "fill-ins" by:

  • Selling 20 more Calls on the 4000 BB that was put to me
  • Selling 130 CLF $? Puts to replace the $7's that expired

Then I'll have to see how much $ I actually have left to pay bills with as I wanted to try and maintain that ~$50K safety net cushion which it looks like I just lost by taking those 4,000 shares of BB @ $13 as it is costing me $21,130.00 of cash holdback for the shares (vs the ~$13K it took to hold the Put options).. Crap. Oh well.

Current positions going into the final week:

Yeah I know I have too much $$ tied up in AKS, but what's a poor trader supposed to do, sit on the sidelines?

and

Yeah I know I have too much $$ tied up in CLF too, but what's a poor trader supposed to do, sit on the sidelines?

and

and finally

Again, Mr. SPAXX is wrong. I WISH.

Maybe things will improve when last Fridays trades "settle".

Getting the 650S ready for....................

The Never Lift Half Mile.

I'm hoping the "scenery" at the starting line is as good as advertised.

UPDATE 4/22/2018:

Since I had an extra cup pf coffee this am I did the allocations % of each position:

Not as terrible as I imagined, but still too much in steel.
