Exited the short at Ag=$16.90, put the profit in my pocket and leaving the market for a few weeks.

Vacation coming and I can’t be arsed with this trading stuff.

Wow! What a time to be on vacation

Totally missed the run up from $17 silver. The people I was travelling with know that I trade and started barking about the price. I think they figured I’d be buying the drinks. Too bad I was flat. Spent a buck on internet and discovered it was already at $19 so nothing left to do but go all in on the short side. Sold half a few days later at Ag=$18. Holding half to see what happens. If I had been home and trading as normal I am not sure I would have caught the whole wave anyway.

More than covered the cost of roaming charges, all’s well that ends well.

Hanging on to the silver short

It wasn’t really the roaming charges that bugged me, it’s having to clear my head and be unemotional when I’m on vacation and having a very emotional time with friends and family. And drinking, and being 6 time zones away from the market hours I trade in.

I think it goes down further from here, so hanging on to my short position.

Thar she blows

Well well well. Sold a tranche.

It’s Friday which is always a reason to consider lightening up positions.

Curious if $17.50 will hold though. So I’m staying just a wee bit short.

Was is really just about a week ago that it was $19.50? And a week before that that it was $17.50?

There’s probably some mathematical thing going on there.

I see head and shoulders.

Watch out for knees and toes.

Seriously, next job is to figure out where/when the turn up happens.

Another trade

Added a short tranche at Ag=$18.05. I don’t think the volume supports the crawling up of price. Not getting a really clear signal though so may sell it later today if can get enough gain.

That short trade from

That short trade from yesterday? Sold it at Ag=$17.78.

It was really a demo trade for the discussion going on in The Setup.

Still have a tranche short that I bought earlier at Ag=$19. $17.50 got busted, which I thought would be the case, but not during the trading day for ETF’s. I believe we will see $17.50 again in the next few days so I am holding out.

Didn’t expect that it was so far from over

The mauling was far from over when I wrote the post above. Somebody is taking advantage of low volume to screw with stops. It probably won’t be ‘low volume’ by the end of the day.

I hasn’t set up my last short tranche to sell but I had set up an entry long so when it blipped $17.50 the trade connected.

So. One leg on each side. Short from $19 and long from $17.50.

Today’s action

Missed the chance to sell the long side early due to meetings. Sold later at Ag=$17.80. 30 cents gives a decent reward so a good day’s work.

Set a price to sell the short side but it wasn’t met so keeping it.

Exited some Ag short

sold yesterday’s tranche when Ag blipped to $18.25 this morning. Will take the quick money, even though it’s small. Low confidence that I have a read. Still have a short tranche .

Wash, rinse, repeat

Out of yesterday’s short at Ag=$18.25.

I might have left some on the table but my pocket is jingling. Call me a big kid. Popsicles for the house!

Edit/Update. Wow it fell another 25 cents in the next 30 minutes after I posted this.

May sell the last tranche of short and find a long entry point.

Now why can’t I listen to myself better. I didn’t hold out but exited the last of my short 2 days ago and started long.

Ah well, the gap from the weekend of Sept 13-16 is now well filled.

Another long tranche this morning at Ag=$17.33

Sold the early am tranche

$old at Ag =$17.60. Not quite 30 cents of silver but close enough for a Friday and I have meetings no time to micromanage.

Still 2 tranches long.

Meh. End of month blues

Bought a long tranche at Ag=$17.00

I think we have to go trade in the 18’s again soon. Too many believers out there.
