You seem to have mix of longs and shorts, which is good. I just can't get comfortable with put sales or longs, or maybe I like the thrill of plunge too much.
I just wish that my trading is successful with these trade journals, so I don't make a fool of myself with these trade journal postings. Good luck trading!
I don't believe the market will go straight up past S&P 1800. It may go up until the year end (and to next year) but I think there may be one or more shakeups on the way up. I do hope that VXX sees 50 again this year. Obviously, more chance to see 50 this year than next year.
If you look back past couple of years, the market has been going up, up and up for a very long time, mostly based on easy money. If it keeps climbing this way, the end may not be pretty. But, then again, by the time it all ends, if it ends next year, VXX may end up half of what it is now.
S&P is already at 1800, would be interesting to see where it is headed to from now...
