Open equity = +$4,860
Cash Balance = $28,480
Sum = $33,340

------------ Thursday, May 12, 2011 --------
Today's action:
June CL
CL SLD 1 @ 95.56 @ 7:14CT
July CL
CL SLD 1 @ 97.90 @ 9:39CT
CL SLD 1 @ 98.02 @ 9:58CT

No fills on o/n sell orders (from yesterday at 101) so they are cancelled.
I will look to close (i.e. buy) the June shorts if/when there is a drop.

Currently:
June
-1 @ 109.27
-1 @ 102.89
-1 @ 95.56 (today)
July
-1 @ 97.90 (today)
-1 @ 98.02 (today)

Learning lessons:
The early quick look and sell at market this morning (95.56), was not a great move.
Remember to wait for rallies to sell into.

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

7:12CT
I have a feeling we'll get a downmove around 7:30 then up and after FOMC a jerk upwards and then down. I would like to get the average price on the short position higher. I am going to enter an order to close 2 Julys at 97.07 . Current price is 97.07.
Also an order to buy to close for the June at 50cents lower 96.57.
(The was no fil on the o/n sell of 97.47 order so I'll cancel it to see what unfolds today.)

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.
