"How are YOUR silver investments doing?"
I've been fairly lucky, taking advantage of the Bull run, and then catching the big correction, although we were a week early with our short positions, and we thought is was going to correct a bit more than it did.
We've been in a trading range for the past three weeks, which puts us in a 'wait and see' position, waiting for confirmation of direction. It looks as though it wants to continue its Bull run, but nothing is etched in stone.
I've been working on an Options technique, and as of yet, it has not been perfected.
I should probably mention that I was fortunate enough to be accepted into a trading group, and have access to two great PM traders, one of which was a broker several years back, until he discovered his own trading technique. One of the traders leans towards the long side, the other to the short, and when these two agree, its a fooking thing of beauty.
"Why encourage confrontation?"
You might want to look a little closer at what you're saying. Dan was causing confrontation, as he so often does. so either stop showing partiality, or mind your own business. And please, spare me all of you queer language, I bet it works better between you and Dan.
Do you do reach-arounds? LMAO!!!
I don't dig your post. It's too gay. The call tanked after a brief flirtation with a fifty cent pop the next week. That's what calls do. That's why I only buy them once in a great while, selling them most of the time.
Why encourage confrontation? Go down to the local drunk tank and watch people chit themselves instead.
First off, you aren't Dan, unless you are one of his alias's. I know for a fact he has at LEAST two others.
Secondly, my post is on point in regards to what he is doing to another poster.
Thirdly, I'm curious as to WHY he said 'One of the best buying ops in quite some time' as it appears to me it was NOT a good buy. If he was acting on a specific 'buy' signal, I'd like to know what it is, and use it as 'sell' signal.
As far as DD, there were only 3 or 4 posts that were relevant to the June $42 Calls, so I can't see how reading 170 posts would be helpful, especially where lots of them were of him being disrespectful, and using ad hominem attacks on other posters.
You say: "You pick a position taken in April 16 of 2011"
Those Calls haven't expired yet, so they are still topical.
And thanks so much for mentioning the date, I thought it was around January or February.
You might get out with a few pennies on daily trading anomolies, but the news next week to a market with short memory doesn't have those tasty economic disaster indicators that shot us between the legs this week, there's more of a chance for drifting upward, no matter how anemic.
Take ten pennies and run, if that happens.
I learned a long time ago, short term, you can almost always buy a stock cheaper than the price you paid today. That being said, and also why I have called 8 for 8, short the stock and net the gain....35 to .60 is enough per trade for me. 4 to 5 % per month is enough....
