My three remaining short iron condor positions — on GLD, XLY and XOP — continue to stay in the profit zone (between the two breakeven points).

On my managed shares portfolio, I’ve exited SLV after receiving a bear signal on the directional movement index, for a $16.75 credit, producing a 5.5% return over 37 days.

I’ve left the slot empty, preserving funds to test an earnings play method I want to try next week. Here’s the present managed shares line-up:

sym slot # entry $/share sector
BOTZ 1 19.32 robotics
(empty) 2
EWM 3 28.25 int-malaysia
UNG 4 19.17 energy
UAE 5 14.18 int-uae
