Shorts looking good round 76 area? Or you think GAP between 76.50 - 76.80 can be tested? (JJ)

Cheers

I have no idea if gap will be filled and when. My shorts are based off a bounce from 73.25 to 76.30, a 305 ticks bounce. I am mentally prepared to add to my shorts if CL first goes higher and then pulls back. Bounces like these within a bearish trend are a gift.

CL moved to the upside more than i anticipated. I am holding some shorts in anticipation of reversion to the mean. CL, GC,6A around upper end of weekly range.

1) taking some shorts in CL into next week. Hoping for 75 area. I hope CL does not bounce another 200 ticks to the upside before a pullback and if she does i will meet her on the other side. I have seen CL do things beyond my imagination , so i try to be mentally prepared. Within a bearish trend - rallies can be SUPER STRONG. That's hallmark of a bearish trend.

2) taking some shorts in GC into next week.

3) Taking some shorts in 6A into next week.

4) taking some shorts in KC into next week.

5) Long attempts in KC- loss. Flat.

6) Taking some longs in NG into next week.

7) No trades in TF.


Holding shorts in GC, 6a,CL and KC.

1) Stopped out on KC short. Ouch- 3 full points loss in KC means fully roasted premium beans. Looking for longs.

2) Out of GC shorts. Scratch.

NG up 7% from friday close. This turned out to the trade. Everything else was plain vanilla rotational type. Longs in CL after covering short from friday around 76 area. Shorts in TF from ORH.

Out of KC and ZS long since there was no follow through. GC stuck within OR , so flat. Short CC 2824 and holding.
NG short and waiting for gap fill to see if longs make sense.

A) Damn NG just like CL she like to shake things up.

B) Crude seems to be getting ready for next leg down based upon days price action. I am flat. Anyone thinking of picking bottom be careful. I was looking for longs most of the day but day's close has taken away my long ideas. Looking for shorts. OPEC upcoming meeting Nove.27th, 2014.
