Good job. It was a hard day.

Why did you buy TLT? Options?

I like MYL. Cheap and controversial. Options too?

Not too crazy about Tech here although outflows from Financials could support Tech.
Thanks! We need to catch up soon.

$TLT is from short term volume capitulation (so a bounce trade).  $MYL has some suspicious options buying, yes. 

Thanks, hope you're doing alright yourself - definitely catch up some time.

Tech Trader is 60% long by 40% short after exiting its $SPY trade (still 100% hitrate btw). We might actually do better in a market sell off but hard to say because of stock selection.

And there's your bang. Tech Trader already up 1% first day of the year with its $SPY trade up 0.6%.

Tech Trader's once-in-a-blue-moon long $SPY signal is finally back on literally the last day of the year... Seriously what were the odds... This trade only ever happens a handful of times a year and still has a 100% hitrate since it went live in 2012.  Trying to start next year with a bang I suppose.

Not much to give an update on. TT basically coasting into year end with modest bets on Energy, Consumer, and Materials.

Seems like TT is nicely hedged here for OPEC - long $SM and $DYN vs short $XOP. Reminds me of Brexit long Europe and short Britain.

$IAU and $TLT also picked up long today.  Seems like another hedging up into major OPEC event.

Long also $MUR and $PDS energy names. So definitely long energy but short oil.

Tech Trader just bought $XLU and $XLP, which sold off sharply post-election. First contrarian bets in a while.
