21 April 2020 TUESDAY

Greetings:  TUESDAY 21 April 2020

I was stopped out at 0.40 of my JUN20 Crude $10 PUT with a loss of  0.40 minus .14 = 0.26 (-$260).
And I closed out the JUN20 Crude CALL 0.05 for a profit of 0.14 minus 0.05 = 0.09 (+$90)

I mistakenly thought that $10 per barrel was going to stay safe.  Obviously, that didn’t happen.

These are crazy times and I won’t be selling any more options until there is some return to rational prices.  It’s just too risky.

This morning MAY Corn prices are near $3.00/bushel, very close to the cost of growing it.  As I said, no rational pricing.

Just moments ago, US President Trump instructed the Energy Secretary to draw up a plan to rush funds to oil companies to keep them from going under (intended to save thousands of jobs.)

-Stay well. – Don





I hope to resume soon and will post again shortly.
