One of the questions subscribers ask most often is how to find details of my open trades. To make it easier I will simply repost the latest summary on a daily basis until there is a change.
I opened a trading short in the Nasdaq-100 March contract at 12231 including spread-bet dealing costs. My logic is the rebound from the October low was less impressive in the Nasdaq and was based on enthusiasm that inflation has peaked and the end of the Fed’s hiking cycle was imminent. Some reassessment of that conclusion appears likely.
I continue to hold my long in Silvergate January 2025 $5 call which were purchased for $13.70. I view this is an option on the recovery in bitcoin.
I rolled my expiring T 2.125% 12/31/2022 cash into the Goldman Sachs 1.7% CD maturing on April 27th 2023.
I bought an investment position in the iShares 20+ year Treasury ETF (TLT) today at $108.525 on January 18th.
I bought equal-sized investment positions in the Global X Copper Miners and Uranium ETFs for $38.23 and $21.08 respectively on January 6th. I imposed stops on these positions on January 18th.
I bought an investment position in the DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund on November 10th. It was trading at a discount of 1.29%, is leveraged 30.48% and invests in high yield and mortgage bonds. The fund is currently yielding 11.5% and makes distributions monthly. I paid $11.485 including dealing costs.
I also initiated an investment long in the Global X Silver Miners ETF paying $27.57 on November 10th.
