SPY opened at a lower low but then rose up into yesterday’s range. My volatility plays in AAPL and AMD remain out of the money, which is another term for the profit zone.

And my often ignored shares position on SPXU, an S&P 500 inverse and leveraged fund, remains unprofitable. If  the bearish conclusion of my Elliott wave analysis turns out to be correct, then it will return to profitability in the near term.

Rather than adding to my positions today, I’m waiting until next week in the interest of providing some time diversity to my holdings.

On Saturday I shall post the Week Ahead of what to look for next week.
