Email Alerts: 10/22/23 – Close GLD, Adjust IWM



After a lot of modeling and adjusting, I’m cutting the position we have in GLD.  While I still think it rose too quickly and could be headed for a reversal, I see strength up to the $190 level.  I do not see a good way to roll or adjust the trade we have without adding money to an already-losing trade.

Debit 4.80 (don’t pay more than 5.00, as that is the max the position is worth).




The Russell 2000 has been falling apart without a retracement.  I’d hate to sell our position now, only to see a potential retracement in the coming weeks.  Therefore, I’m rolling this position out in time.  Depending on fill prices, it may be a slight debit.
