Oct 6 - Equities consolidation, gold miners catching a bid, potential oil breakout

Equities volume is pretty weak today and the short term indicators are jammed to the upside.  Still sitting in a small SDS position and willing to see what happens.

Gold miners catching a bid and fortunately my DUST order wasn't filled yesterday.  It could be a soft 'W' bottom but since gold miners/ GLD have disappointed so often maybe this once again is not the time.  That said, there is a strong amount of positive divergence on the daily and weekly and sooner or later it will trigger in a big way.

The 30 min chart very overbought.  You can see that big block of RSI green on the top.  Those things are usually resolved but there is still a chance a quick and mild pullback/ sideways action and back up.
 1 hr frame saying the same thing.
 Same for 2 hr albeit less overbought.
 The volume is very weak and right at resistance.  Risk to reward not a bad place to short although I have been impressed by the strong of this move up.
 GDX north of the upper BB.
USO looking very good here.  Volume is confirming.

May 15 - Closed out IWM puts for +120% and picked up DAL and HD Jun calls

I'm going to let the market do its thing this week and probably stay away from new positions until Friday unless something very good pop...
