Aug 22- Still long GLD

Added some TWLO, AGU, NUGT, SLV last week in addition to the DGP position.  I sold the CMG and will still be eyeing it.

Looking for a bounce in precious metals.

The discretionary account took a hit last week mainly due to the early precious metals entry and is already down 6%.  Will have to trim back position size.

The volatility account is up 1.5%

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...
