GDXJ results posted.

3:20 p.m. New York time

GDXJ has moved above its profit zone, with the rate of change placing it more than a day beyond recovery. Following the dictates of my rules, I have exited for a $0.97 debit. Results upcoming.

I exited IBM for a loss and have updated the analysis with results.

10 a.m New York time

I’ve posted my analysis of the short iron fly position on IBM.

9:45 a.m. New York time

I have placed exit orders on KRE and XBI, as they continue to hover around 50% of maximum potential profit. This has been going on for several days, without fills at my bidding price.

IBM published earnings last night. I shall post an analysis shortly.
