The Newmont Diary

Newmont Mining Corp.

This diary is about my NEM trading. I always liked NEM and I like gold. So, I am going to journalize my series of transactions. Let's see what I can do.

Into NEM

Thanks Cory, My go to company for PGMs.

Nem in Hungarian means "No".

Okay, let's move on. The first NEM trade, yes? Yes.

I am doing what is called a RadioActive trade. But it is my way of doing the RadioActive trade. RadioActive meaning the decay of the option premiums. Isn't that clever? I have 200 shares of NEM married to 2 DEC 12 60 puts. When I bought NEM, I did it with a BuyWrite, selling the May 11st 48 calls. With the 2 puts, I have limited downside. The 60 puts have a Delta of .80 so if NEM raises a point the put only declines .8 of a point. Also, I am writing the weekly OTM options against the position, as with this BuyWrite, to generate weekly income. With the 48 calls, if NEM trades tomorrow at 48, I will buy 200 more shares to cover the call position and sell two more OTM calls.

When you look at the weekly/daily chart you can see why I married 2 puts to NEM.

Another Look

I wrote the 47 calls Friday vs. the 48s for the better premiums. NEM's looking like it's trying to find a bottom. So I have to be on guard against a quick move up to 47.

NEM

popped up after opening lower, so I didn't roll down my calls a notch. I will wait for a clear 2 points before rolling to 46

having been up over my 45


I traded NEM. It is just all over the place on the price ladder, so I used a STPLMT order. If my trade failed, I wrote the 44 calls since tomorrow is options expiration and it costs a dime to call 100 shares. I am a point and a quarter above 44. I tried the 2 range and 4 range, but they are choppy, so I settled on the 30 second chart.

I have enough juice in my account for another 200 shares which are needed for straight trading and at the end of the day to write 2 calls for next week, if NEM stays above 45.

The 30 second chart trades well, just read it and trade it. But price moves fast............
