How high are you guys expecting KOLD to go? Not sure if I should grab some.

Hard to say. It’s funny how these work. It’s supposed to be 4x leveraged but I notice the multiple is much more than that when the price of nat gas changes quickly.

Check the chart. It spiked to 270 in the past.

I saw that, but it spiked to $270 on its way down from $1700?

Despite yesterday being a terrible day on Wall Street, my broker managed to sell half of my Keysight Technologies (KEYS) position at a 28% profit. He put the proceeds in my cash account, and he is actively shopping for a good sale. He's got two lines in the water now.

He went on to tell me that profits are getting harder and harder to find and that the annual "Santa Claus" bump this year is likely to be shorter than in years past. It normally carries well into January, but he's saying it may already be coming to an end.

Nat gas just keeps whipsawing back and forth.

Almost time to get back into Boil.

Kindof expected KOLD to shoot higher with how much Nat gas has gone down.

Wish I wouldve bought more but sitting on 3k shares at @$14.06.

Need to do a little research on the LNG plant in Texas that should be reopening soon. I read an article on it and the author states that demand for LNG will increase once the plant goes back online. Seems counterintuitive since there should be an increased supply.

You are killing it on that ETF pair lately, congrats.

Looking at either one, you can play once it's above the 9 day EMA on a 4hr chart and just wait for the money to roll in lol.

Boil touched $25 today, bouncing off $27 after hrs.

And ty. Trying to not be too greedy is working out pretty well so far.

yep BOIL is giving me the go indicator on the 1hr, the 2hr looks just about ready. I love all these pairs because there is almost always a trade. The QQQs, LABs…and now these are my new favorite i think.

I do not try to apply any logic to this, just read my screen or app and go.

not being greedy has been my hardest lesson to learn so far…I’ve held so many while they went from green to red lol…no more.

Still working on holding on these longer swings(that say to stay in), today my chart said hold so i went and rotated the tires on my truck and let it do its thing

Yeah just remember, a successful trade is more important than the highest potential profit.
I've been training to trade options for the last 6 months. I've learned so much.. humbled by how ignorant I was/am. Pulled my 401k's and now doing it myself.

Oh hell yeah, it adds up quick. Basically I was taught to stack base hits and try to compound. Was also taught to go in heavy and 'get in, get out'.

Always punching numbers into this calculator. Working on sizing up currently and seeing red for a moment and not flipping my shit lol. I gotta remember 2% red is 2% red no matter if ya got 100 or 1000 shares...if I'm consistent I'll come out ahead. Basically, be a robot.


edit: was it difficult to take over your 401k? Or did you simply cash out and pay the fee? I’ve been thinking about it as there’s no way they will ever perform like i‘d wish

I just hit the cash out button on most. I did roll over one small IRA to try and take advantage of scraping some smaller amounts by not having to pay the tax as it grows. Wasn't too difficult, but it all depends on if it's still under a current employers or previous employers control. The brokerage that held my larger account would rollover my 401k to a traditional ira for free since I was already technically a client. Then I just had them send a check. The other was super easy, as I just requested a transfer from one brokerage to another.
We talk about compounding quite a bit, and hell yeah, it makes sense.. thats how banks make their money off your mortgage. It's crazy how quick you can multiply wealth if you reinvest and leave it all in.
Getting acclimated to options and it's so crazy to think no matter which way the security moves, if you time it right, you make money in either direction! It's ridiculous!

Options is one thing I haven’t dabbled in. Gonna have to get a book on that.

Appreciate the info. Sounds like I need to just contact my 401k folks and see what my options are.

And yeah I don't mess with options hardly at all anymore, a little risky for me. But some within our group use the same philosophy with them with what appears to be pretty good success. We don't really care which way the market goes, as long as it moves. Bring that volatility! (Also why I like the inverse pairs, basically like puts/calls...but you're loading shares)

You can in fact be happy when the vast majority are having a big bad red day

It's a fascinating world I will admit I didn't know even existed. Crazy complicated at first, but the safest trades are still buy low, sell high.
Mind is blown how stupid it is, you can make money in a down market.

First big miss for me on Boil/KOLD

The weekly draw of nat gas reserves ending Dec16 came in at 87BCF vs an expected 89BCF.

They are expecting a much bigger jump than normal for next week due to the extreme cold snap. Also expect production to miss when plants/lines close for a few days due to weather.

Had to go pretty deep on Boil to average down to where I’m only upside down @9%

Starting out upside down but my most profitable trade on KOLD went exactly the same way.
