Filled Positions

Light trading. Just taking small profits. I suppose at some point I should put some charts up, but that's more time consuming and I don't have as much time right now. Will eventually do it. Have I used any indicators on any of these? Nope. Just a line chart, candlesticks, and understanding how to read patterns, movements.

LEH
- Did a SWS from Tues.
- In Bearish @ 56.50 (8/28), Sep60P - 3, LESUL, $6.00 ($1808.85)
- Hard stop @ 57.00 (for 8/28)
- Hard stop @ $56.30 (for 8/29)
- Hard stop @ $55.25 (for 8/30) - I don't really want to give it much wiggle room here in case it decides to reverse, as it did earlier in Aug.
- Hard stop @ 54.10 (for 8/31)
- Out @ $54.75 (8/31) at 6.10 ($1821.15)
- Break Even = $12.30 (0.7% ROI)

MA
- In Bullish @ 133 (8/29), Sep135C - 3, MALIG, $5.20 ($1568.85)
- Hard stop @ 129.40 (for 8/30) - will give this 2 days at the 131.15 support
- This might have been too soon of a bullish entry. The past 2 times it's dropped 120-123 range. I'll watch this to see if I might want to put a tighter stop on this tomorrow. In actuality, I set my bracket for tomorrow and if it hit 133 tomorrow, that would've been a good entry and not today. My error.
- Hard stop @ 131.10 (for 8/31)
- Hard stop @ 134 (for 9/4)
- Hard stop @ 134.90 (for 9/5)

RIMM - #1
- In Bullish @ 81.50 (8/29), Sep80C - 3, RFYIP, $4.55 ($1373.85)
- Hard stop @ 79.25 (for 8/30)
- This broke above the flag that was forming, however, the highs have not exceeded the past 4 days, volumes are low, and RIMM has been known to be in compression patterns for sometimes 2-3 weeks at a time. Perhaps just taking small profits here and there during these times would be good. Typically RIMM's compression patterns allows for enough movement from the top to the bottom (and vice versa) to make some nice change. I'm not convinced of a breakout yet. I may even set a tighter stop tomorrow.
- Hard stop @ 83.60 (for 8/31, 9/4, 9/5)

RIMM - #2
- In Bullish @ ~82.50 (8/30), Sep80C - 3, RFYIP, $5.40 ($1632.95)
- Hard stop @ 78.75 (for 8/31)
- Out @ $84.50 (8/31) @ $6.80 ($2027.05) - with the gap up, wanted to just take profits before the weekend on this trade
- Profit = $394.10 (24% ROI)

CME
- In Bearish @ 551 (8/30), Sep540P - 1, CNMUH, $12.50 ($1252.95) - weak bear
- Hard stop @ 563.10 (for 8/31)
- Hard stop @ 556 (for 9/4) - this bearish play doesn't feel right, so I expect to be taken out on Tues by jamming up my stop.
- Out at 561.75 (9/4) at $8.00 ($797.05) - one word prevented me from being stopped out at $556 or closer to that. It was the word BELOW. It should've been ABOVE on my contingent. My error.
- Cost = -$455.90 (-36% ROI)

BCSI
- In Bullish @ 82.75 (8/30), Sep80C - 5, $5.95 ($2989.75) - meant to get in on Tues rather than this day. Was using this as an example for someone and got actually filled.
- Hard stop @ 80.60 (for 8/31)
- Hard stop @ 81.25 (for 9/4)
- Out @ 86.30 (9/4) at $8.35 ($4160.25)
