November Results

Posted by mounddweller on November 22, 2009


Not much to report.  My ONXX $22.5 naked puts expired worthless.  For once I was able to correctly identify the line of support and use it to my advantage.  You’ll recall I sold the puts after ONXX had fallen from around $35 down to almost $25.  ONXX bounced off the support at $25 and rebounded up to almost $29 before selling off over the past few days.  It closed Friday at $27.99.

My only other open position continues to be my naked puts in UNG.  Natural gas sold off sharply again this month so once again I am fighting an uphill battle.  Fortunately, the last round of puts I sold don’t expire until January so I have some time for it to recover.

I haven’t identified any new trades for December.  Perhaps something will turn up in this holiday shortened week.

Have a great Thanksgiving holiday.
