Yes, I've seen that recently also. They seem to make improvements regularly so I'm guessing that is what might be happening. They have a good support team so it should be available soon...

Yes It isn't working. I sent them an email on Monday and the person responding didn't have a clue what I was talking about. I replied and told him to send the email to his supervisor. Nobody responded back.

A few notes on the SPX options:

SPX at 1559

Do you mean SPX at 1659?

My Current Status

Sold a couple more options in the last few days.

Here is my current Position Board. All positions are currently breakeven or profitable.

The furthest one out expires on 8/16/2013, and if I hold these all to expiration, without selling any new options, from Feb 1 to Aug 16 I'll have annual rate of return of 40%.

Not too shabby. Making sure losers (I had one already in NG) don't get out of control is one of the keys to this, it seems.

Interesting. I have on all of these, some different strikes, except the LH. I have CLn3 72-130 strangle. 112 is a bit close for me.

I also have on ESm3 1300 or less puts. GCm3 2000+ calls and 1150 or less puts (thank goodness they expire in 11 days). A bunch of NG calls. RBm3 calls. SB calls. 2,256 short options.

June CL options expired yesterday. Total CL option OI went from 3.4 million to 2.6 million. That's a lot of June options. 24% of all CL options.

Dec will have an even higher OI. Last year option OI dropped by 1.4 million when Dec expired.

Another reason there is a lid on coffee prices. Growers have far more than normal coffee from last year yet to sell.


Quoting 
SAO PAULO--Brazilian coffee growers sold 83% of the crop from the 2012-2013
season by April 30, the Safras & Mercado consultancy said Friday.

That compares with 92% at the same time a year ago, and the average of 93%
over the past five years, Safras said.

Coffee producers have sold 45.45 million 60-kilogram (132-pound) bags of
coffee out of 54.9 million bags produced, the consultancy said.

Here is why NG prices prices shouldn't get too high.

Quoting 
EIA forecasts average delivered coal prices of $2.40 per MMBtu in 2013

So a NG price in the upper 4s is double the cost of coal. Yes coal costs more to control the emissions, but not double NG. Electric plants started switching back to coal when NG hit 3.25.
