Aug 7 - Closed 2/3 of short positions

On the daily, we tapped the lower bollinger in SPY and poked the upper BB in $VXO.  Also getting a buy signal on the 60 min frame although on strong trends these get invalidated.  I still think there is downside for intermediate term but will collect profits and hopefully get a bounce to short into next week.

SPY tapped lower BB and volume is a bit weaker so participation might be temporarily waning.

Volume much weaker on QQQ

VIX not quite at target but going to wait and see.

$VXO running into upper BB which has often led to equity bounces even if very temporary

July 21 - Still massively long banks, took short term longs in NVDA, BABA, HAL, OAS

Probably 2/3 of the options account is in banks.  Maybe 1/2 regionals and 1/2 XLF, C, BAC.  Expecting another run up in equities into Augus...
