    Watching UGLD/DGLD - there is a huge honkin' gap on UGLD that we are almost into. Also watching USLV/DSLV if it follows gold.

    I put a flyer on some IYR Puts at the close. Could see (hopefully see) a big drop coming next week.

    I picked up 34 of the $89 7/19 PUTS @ .29 for $986 (small aggressive entry amount) - I will add more if the play works on Monday.

    Here is my analysis. I know I haven't posted one of these in a while. Added a couple new indicators - trying not to create paralysis by analysis.

    Watchlist for early this week:

    YINN Long
    EDC Long
    LABU Long
    DRN Long - already have a small aggressive 7/19 CALL on this one. If it triggers will move more $ into play.

    closed out my IYR PUT for a 25% loss - signals did not materialize today.

    I will be watching the following tomorrow:

    XLE Puts
    USO Puts
    FXI Calls

    Account it sitting at $6,894.37.

    FXI Calls were looking good until about 11:00 - they might be off the table depending on how they close

    XLE PUTS
    USO PUTS
    UNG PUTS

    Are all a watch for me - So I may basically be short energy.

    Did not get in on these plays, but they would've been big gainers today. Energy taking a hit again - I believe on Trumps comments.

    wow, just noticed above was my 1,000th post here. I remember lurking on HSM. This is hands down the best trading forums I've been a part of.

    I entered a 1/2 position lot on SPY. I got 58 $297 PUTS @ .60 right before the close.
