Aug 3 - XOP long

Added XOP long after getting stopped out yesterday (should've had a slighter longer stop maybe).   XOP has been showing strength despite oil weakening the last few weeks.  Oil 'may' be stabilizing here but the trend is still down.

Also added VXX put spreads for first month of Sept in the 'Volatility Account'.  Plan is to add 1% of acct/ wk going out 1-1.5 mo.

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...
