48.52

I didn't read the charts correctly. There they are right right in front of me.

If you look at the chart the dip was just a pullback, the indies said that but I didn't focus on them. So I sold the calender spread in the pullback, a 48 for a 48. Then NEM popped back above 48, so I was starting to get into a hole. So later I sold a 49 BuyWrite to open up the upside while opening the downside. So, I close the week with 600, 200 will be called and I start Monday with 400.

TGIF


I have this chart on another computer. The daily/weekly don't look so hot for a rally. We are at a turning point. So price will drive the indies. The weekly says down and the daily might say up which could say sideways. So Monday's price action will decide. Above the 25MA for up. Below the pullback pivot low for down.

Not much of a day. Range day. Happy to see NEM remain between 48 and 49.

49.69

Short day with a gap open higher. Then just grinding sideways on low volume because of the holiday cometh. With the gap open because gold jumped over night, it jumped my 49 strike. No movement in price, so I decided to do a 49 BuyWrite to grab some premium and the price back to 49.

49.05

for now, selling the 49 calls looks brilliant as I sold the price back down to 49. Tomorrow is another day. NEM opened gap down then ranged in that area.

anyhow price leads the stochastics, so the stochastics will move to a signal when price breaks the high or low pivot.

TGIF 47.92

okay a quick recap of Friday: Yes the market was sinking away along with NEM, gap down open and sinking. I get caught up in the thought: if I don't roll the options now, I will lose that option premium, I am seeing. And the 48 calls will not be called.

On the charts, I could see a bottoming effect in NEM, just not sure if would cut loose for another leg down.

Low and behold, NEM did bottom and headed to 48 (which I thought was not possible today). NEM was above 48 and at the last minutes before 4:00 PM, invisible hands entered the market (maker) and drove NEM down to 47.92. And you know NEM 48s didn't get called. Imagine that. I also had SSO 52's in another account that didn't get called when SSO was at 54; what a banner Friday for us investing rubes.

Lesson: in the markets the impossible is possible.
