Got out of the Cocoa trade with a small profit of approx. 15 %. Fundamentals (supply & demand date) are more bearish now.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Bought back the Gold puts at +/- 0, and some ES puts at a profit of 30 - 50 %. Uncertainty about a rate hike might cause large moves and high volatility, which again might yield good entry points. Thus, I reduced the number of open trades.

Intend to re-enter these markets.

Best regards, Myrrdin

I get volatility charts from MRCI. They provide charts for historical and implied volatility for a large number of commodities, including longtime charts and seasonals.

Their main topic is seasonals for futures and future spreads.

In my opinion MRCI is a very valuable site for option sellers. Price is very reasonable, and, as far as I know, you can get a free test for some weeks.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Took 65 % profit on the Coffee calls. I intend to sell again at higher level if given the chance.

The options expire in August, and it would have been a long time for only a small part of the potential profit.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Sold the CLV C65.

Volatility should come down after the OPEC meeting this week.

Intend to hold the position until a close above $55.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Bought the NGV C2.7, and sold the NGV C2.8 and NGV 2.9 to achieve a moderate short position. Together with the corresponding long positions, the result is kind of a conservative strangle.

The position is profitable below 3.0 at the expiry of the October contract.

Best regards, Myrrdin

With a big supply to absorb later this year, December hog prices should not move much higher.

Sold the LHZ C68 for 2.00.
