Why REVI’s move into the hemp printing paper sector could mean big valuations for its share price and how traders can make their move right now before market valuation surges north
VXX and TVIX up same amount? Did someone forget to tell Barclays TVIX is 2X VXX?
I can't wait for the next reverse split on this trash.
Nice job Barclay's. You have designed a product that does nothing it's supposed to do.
1. Track Volatility - Depends
2. Track S&P 500 Options Pricing - Depends
3. Contango - Depends
Let me make this easy for you Barclay's.
When VIX is down and S&P 500 is up, VXX should be down especially since there is this thing called Contango.
I realize you are trying to hold this thing up but it is a shock to nobody who has looked at a 5 year chart that this thing is designed to go to zero. There is no reason to save the suckers who bought at $30 or $40 or $500 (with reverse splits).
PLWY delivers on bullish expectations of Wall Street and enters $15 billion video messaging space with latest software rights acquisition
Glad to hear things continue to go well. I made a small amount on this latest VXX drop, but of course didn't hold long enough. A couple of other short ideas that I am watching closely: IBM and HYG. I think both suffer as speculation around rates increases. How about DE as another angle on corn?
Market has done it again. It seems whoever not buying the dip these days is a fool. It would have been nice if S&P touched 2000 before dipping a bit on Friday to be done with 2000. Otherwise, I feel that it will keep on coming back to finally declare 2000.
Very tempting to close some of new VXX shorts as VXX gained strength again, but afraid of market going on ATH spree. So, keeping all VXX share shorts and adding market shorts. By the way, my broker raised margin requirement for VXX to 40% from 30%.
Added shorts: DECK, CAT, UAL, FB, HD
New shorts: RL, EL, DG
Closed some of new CAT shorts on Friday's dip.
Don't understand that KSS is very strong, didn't come up to my short price so couldn't short.
Wanting to short: GMCR/LNKD (too risky though), FFIV/EXPE, FSLR/GS (if comes up a bit more).
Didn't add to CORN after Aug CORN puts sold expired worthless. Analysts saying "farmers will drown in corn" makes me a bit worried and re-think. But, I have a feeling that it's time to buy soon if not now, darkest before dawn.
Still keeping initial DGAZ short and waiting for decay from going up and down. Guess cold winter more likely if summer is this cool.
Account down to a bit below 7th milestone with S&P 30+ climb this week. Not too bad given that VXX lost hedging role this week. Friday's little dip giving me breathing room.
Laid tiles today in play room and entry. First time doing it to save some money, a bit of back pain but my wife is impressed.
Traders swoop in on MEDA after big announcement concerning new features for its Klarity analytics dashboard. New price target of $2.50 realistic?
DEQI enters $15 billion mobile gaming market with planned launch in October 2014. The mobile game will be the company’s first and will be based on record-breaking movie created by former LucasArts group
Been a frustrating week not because I lost but because tradings didn't work out.
Treid to short KMI, KSS, RL, MNST on pop, but lost chances and couldn't act at the right time for all of them. Had difficulties rolling but managed to roll some OK. TSLA and LNKD are flying but afraid to touch them. May try selling LEAP calls if my account condition gets better.
Closed all 55 SLB deep in the money puts long at the low Friday, lucky. May go down further but had enough with rolling this oil stock puts each week for so long, and don't see much further downside in oil stock even if Ukraine tension rises.
Sold HD LEAP calls on ATH.
Account ATH on THU by a bit, half way to 8th milestone end of the week. Would have been nice if I had closed most of markets shorts last week and earned both ways from market shorts and VXX shorts on rebound, but I guess that's just wishful thinking. Glad that my account is up a little bit while S&P rebounded 45 points from last week's low. As VXX approaches recent low and most of VXX calls sold became OTM, I doubt that it continue to provide the same level of hedge for my market shorts.
Great expectations are now tied to NCST after management inks $1.125 million deal. Could the
company’s data tool help it breach the $2 mark?
Local authorities in Toledo look for innovative water solutions as 500,000 residents are left without safe drinking water. Could OGNG be in for a massive revenue haul?
Exactly, this traded as high as 36.6 premarket Friday morning only to close 2 days later at 31.85, just a nice 13% drop.... I see another 52wk very soon and another RS by December @ around 12 or so.
Kept adding to VXX short this week, increased short by more than 50% from last week but VXX short is still just about 15% of account market value due to increase in market short. Chose VXX share short rather than call sale this week. VXX share short increased to more than 3 times core VXX short shares and hoping to keep all of them as new core VXX short from now on.
Played UNG volatility again before inventory report but didn't work out this week, as it went up and down instead of going in one direction. Would be good if UNG goes up Monday morning.
Closed remaining WAG share shorts upon dive. Would have been great if I could keep all WAG shorts. But I lost major part of WAG shorts due to lack of funds in June.
Closed newly added UAL share shorts. Closed EXPE calls sold at nice gain, FB & WDC calls sold at a bit of gain to make fund for weekly rolling.
Market shorts increased while trying to roll CAT shares assigned, missed good chances to roll and acted at wrong time.
Friday was a disappointment after seeing S&P down more than 10 point, VIX futures up more than $1 Thu late night.
Account some minus compared to last week, but increased VXX shorts are helping offset market rebound. Upside risk is not much with large amount of VXX short compared to two months ago when I was VXX nuetral or a bit long. This week wasn't very good but not too bad either. Hoping that I don't go under 6th milestone this time. I need Monday down to roll assigned shares. Otherwise, it would be very hectic Monday.
Wishing for market going sideways for some time so I can trim shorts while VXX keeps losing strength... just wishing...
