BUY VXX 100 DEC 14 28 CALL @1.51
When I got on the computer today I noticed my GTC order went through. Stoked! Basically if the VXX goes below 28 I buy calls. It doesn’t seem to ever go below 27..

SOLD STRANGLE MMM 100 JAN 15 170/150 CALL/PUT @1.32
I got a good credit on this spread. Looking for it to bounce around between the strikes a little bit. Long term the chart looks like it will continue up but short term I’m seeing a breather. I may put a stop on the put wing in case there’s a crash in the near future, like the last week of Nov.

BOT COP 100 DEC 14 72.5 CALL @2.19
I like the chart on COP. Looking for it to break up and out of consolidation. I haven’t found many things to get long on lately because of my thoughts on the overall market. COP’s short term chart has been straight down but on the yearly chart I’m seeing it on it’s way up from the lower end of a channel.

10/21/14 – SOLD COP 100 DEC 14 72.5 CALL @2.20
Well, it did gap up but it seems to not like that trend line and got denied. I got stopped out!  DAM IT!  I put in the  stop this morning and like 15 minutes later it went through. My stop was at $2.25 but the by the time it got triggered the market was at $2.20. I’ll keep my eye on this one to get back it. Think it was something like a %.01 loss after commissions.
