Sold again the GCQ P1100 at 9, which I had bought back at 6.8 some days ago.

I intend to hold them as long as they close above 1165.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Liquidated the CTZ P50 options with a profit of a bit more than 50 %.

Took profit two months after selling, as there is still a long time to go before the options expire.

Might sell again at a lower price.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Wasn't the Corn planting forecast significantly higher than anybody expected?

Yes, the USDA Report for corn was bearish.

The CTZ P50, that you seem to refer to, is the cotton option. (In case I misunderstood you please let me know.)

Best regards, Myrrdin

PS: I liquidated my long corn position before the USDA Report (see below).

Bought back the KCU C200 at approx. 30 % of ist original value. This represents about 1/3 of my coffee position.

I am still optimistic for the rest of the position, but the small remaining value is not worth the risk. Coffee prices might rise in April due to small amounts of coffee available and dryness problems in Vietnam. But the crop in Brazil will be huge, if there are no unforeseen events.

In case coffee price moves up again I intend to sell again some calls.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Placed 5 orders to sell the ESM C2150 at 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15, and got filled at the first lot. The trade to sell the ESM C2150 at 11 was suggested by Carley.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Bought the NGN P2.2, and sold the NGN P2.1 and P2.0 to achieve a conservative long position in Natural Gas. Break even (at the expiry) is below the March low.

Bearish supply outlook for soybeans. Some acres might change to beans.

Sold the SM C920.

I prefer the June contract, which expires on May, 20th, as the situation seems to be quite clear for the next couple of weeks. Weather might change everything in June.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Bought back the rest of my coffee calls with a profit of approx. 50 %.

In case price moves up again (eg. crop problems in Vietnam, short term weather forecast for Brazil), outside markets) I intend to sell again.

Best regards, Myrrdin
