October 2011 Monthly Wrap-Up: GS, AAPL, JOYG, SNDK, GLD, GMCR, FFIV

|Includes: AAPL, FFIV, GLD, GMCR, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS), JOY, WDC

It was a very volatile month. We traded on both sides and caught sensational profits on both sides.  Although the market did see some quick pullbacks, after the sharp drop in first 2 trading days of the month, the market direction has been mostly "up".  We scored triple-digit gainers on both GS puts and calls, with puts in the beginning of the month and calls just last week.  AAPL had some big movements as well and provided us with a +235% win on the calls before earnings.  GMCR was a big downside story this month, and we captured many parts of it.  Here are the closed trades for the month:
