The market finished strongly on Friday.  Looking past the unemployment report, and anticipating more Fed help.  The market was quite volatile this week and we caught some nice trades on both sides.  On Tuesday, we scored an intrady double (entering and exiting the trade on the same day, only a few hours) on GOOG, with profit as high as +119%.  On Wednesday, we jumped in on the VMW puts when the "cloud computing" stocks were getting hammered.  That trade brought us an overnight +67% gain, which we cashed out on Thursday morning near the day high.  Here are the closed trades for the week:
