Jul 20 - More upside in risk on assets

Volume is a bit weak but price is speaking.  Small caps and tech are leading the way.  My QQQ longs are doing great but unfortunately my XOP are still a bit underwater.  If oil stabilizes as I expect, XOP should catch a bid as we see more push into riskier assets.

The last few days was just consolidation we need to see a steady close

A much smaller pullback than most were expecting which speaks to the pain trade being up.

 XOP flashed a breakdown but has recovered.  These false breakdowns often result in big moves in the other direction.
 USO also slipped below support but is now green.
 QQQ is a beast.
 IBB also has broken up and out.  There could be a lot of upside ahead
 VIX keeps dropping amazingly.  Printing a reversal candle so important to see what happens EOD but the trend in equities is still up regardless of negative divergence in VIX w equities

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...
