Just a sideways grind. I was thinking of buying some puts to protect the downside, but every time I think: mostly I am wrong. So I didn't do it. And I thought maybe I should roll my options since my outstanding options were cheap, but I decided to wait to the end of the week. Thinking again, I was.

Yes, NEM opened gap down and headed lower with the general market only to rally after 11:00. I checked the premiums of my outstanding options and they were as cheap as they would get. As time stamped on the trades image, NEM was consolidating, so I high balled the spread prices and they executed. I have 200 more shares that are married to puts and tomorrow after 3:30 I will sell 2 calls about 1 to 2 points higher than the stock. I sold the 47s and 49s today because moving down strikes without netting above the $1 price for the spread is an instant potential loss.

I don't know how many traders are involved with NEM or if it is the market maker, with 15 minutes to go in the RTH, they knocked NEM down.

TGIF 46.15

I waited untill 3:30ish to sell the remaining two calls. I decided to sell the 48s instead of the 47s. I can always roll down to the 47s.

45.05

On Tuesday, NEM opened gap down, then consolidated. I wanted to execute a vertical spread lower to 46, but I didn't want to get squeezed on a price pop. So I didn't.

Wednesday another gap down open, then the whole day of consolidation.

So I did that vertical down to 46, but only after the premium had disappeared. I had put my order in yesterday and today as a higher then the bid, but it didn't execute. I finally threw another order out there for chump change.

And finally the daily/weekly chart is a good guide for the trend as NEM did break that lower pivot.

Not much happening this Monday. I was going to do a spread or two to collect premium, but decided to hold tight. NEM took it on the chin Monday.
