Bought back USZ C160 with a profit of 24 %. Intend to sell USZ or USH calls again in the high 150s.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Back in the Bonds call trade, selling the USZ C170 at 0.17 . In my opinion, the upside is limited. Intend to hold the spread until a close above 160.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Sold the SF C9, and intend to hold it until a close above 9.

For the US, I expect a gain in September until final yield, which will overcompensate possible acreage losses. Furthermore, supply from other countries is rising consistently. Chinese buying during the visit of their President in the US should be priced in.

Harvest pressure should increase soon.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Bought back SF C9 for a small profit.

I am currently careful selling options in the grains & beans, as the October USDA report is approaching. This report is known for causing potentially large moves.

I am also considering buying back my corn & wheat options for the same reason.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Sold a small lot (1/3 of normal lot size) of the ESZ P1300 at 3.5 yesterday before the close. Entered further orders at 5 and 6.5 to achieve a regular lot size in case the ES moves downwards towards its lows.

Best regards, Myrrdin

Bought back the CLZ strangle (profit 17 % / 81 % for puts / calls), and sold the CLF P30 to now hold a strangle in the January contract.

Added to the bean oil position, selling the BOH6 P26.

El Nino hurts palm oil increasingly, and, thus, prices for bean oil should not move downwards from current very low levels.

Sold again Live Cattle puts: LCG6 P120.

I am convinced that quarters end contributes to the severely lower prices today, and that the lows of today will hold.
