update to Wednesday, July 20, 2011
Rollover:
closed out at close

As I thought Aug CL traded til Friday - but it seems to have stopped trading yesterday,
I am assuming that all my positions (had they been real) would have been closed out yesterday at the close of trading.

So buy to close 6 shorts at closing price of 98.09 gives + 3,590 to cash balance
Bringing closing cash to $41,610.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

How did this turn out? =) If you held this until today, you would've made a killing.

-- I probably would have added more shorts but I pretty much gave up on this thread as no-one seemed interested and i am short of time. -- this thread is paper trades and I was hoping when I started it others would post graphs.

Thursday, August 18.

So we've had a bounce as called for;
"Saturday, August 13, 2011 CLU11
Looking for the bounce to end in a few days.
resistance $90"

As I am expecting a fall next week - I will be looking to sell tomorrow Friday, adding to the existing short position. (even if we don't make it to $90)
