ETF Covered Calls 05-03-2012

I’m getting a sinking feeling in my stomach about this market.  I ran the ETF matrix report to look at Calls and Puts on ETFs and things seemed a bit normal until I realized there is heavy insurance buying on gold.   The leveraged ETFs are all over the place with HUGE volumes, quite chaotic, not sure what it means but I’m trading lightly.

The market seems a bit calm despite the noise around Spain and greater Europe.   The ETF Matrix Report is revealing interest in commodities again (gold, gas, oil, commodity rich countries like brazil).

I’m holding steady in cash for the moment.  Summer is usually fairly benign so we’ll see what happens in May.

Nothing much to report, the ETF Matrix Report shows commodity buying and insurance buying but not much beyond that over the past 30 days.   Haven’t done any trading as I wait for the crash which I think may be coming next month….sell in May and go away?  We’ll see.   Still holding positions on FAZ.

Eureka!  Looks like the market is waking up from its siesta and the name of the game is commodities.  Perhaps the problem in Greece and fears of the cascade to Portugal and Spain is pushing people into hard currencies and hard metals again.

Next week is options expiry and I’m going to sit back and see how my bets on OIH, XME and RMEX pan out.

What if someone built a stock market and no one showed up?  That’s exactly what I’m asking myself these days when I look at the ETF Matrix Report.   I’m not sure what I can make of the calm markets.   It just feels like we’ve hit a plateau and people are standing around waiting to see what is going to happen.    Perhaps that’s the dichotomy we find ourselves in at the moment.   On the one hand the economy seems to be gaining momentum yet if that’s true oil seems to go ballistic upwards of $100+ barrel which would inevitably crash the economy.   Perhaps it’s a huge game of chicken and no one wants to flinch yet no one wants to move either.

I currently hold small positions in XME, OIH, and am happy to report that I’ve liquidated DDM at no losses and have gained some additional short positions on SSO so things are positive in my cashbook.

Calm seas yet again and I don’t know what to make of it.  On one level it looks like markets are returning to pre-2007 normals yet on another it looks like the market is dying a slow painful death and I can’t discern where things are heading.   Still in cash and inverse market.

Sorry for the missed posts but not a lot happening in the world of ETF Covered Calls.  Markets seem eerily calm.   Here is the ETF Matrix Report.

Another eerily calm week as the ETF Matrix Report didn’t find much xolatility for February and just a bit in March.   The international news is that Greece isn’t going to roll over their debt and dominoes will start falling but that seems unlikely.   FAZ looks tempting so I’ll keep an eye on it.

Apologies for the lack of posting however I’ve been quite busy.   The ETF Matrix Report is showing the market gone very calm.   There is heavy commodity xolatility for March but other than that, the market seem tepid.   I did manage to finally sell most of my DDM with this market rally so I ultimately broke even with a little profit on DDM.  Currently holding about 400 FAZ and may buy more on the weekly front to get some quick cash.

Whatever chaos the markets were to undergo in January seems to be pushing off to February and March.  Perhaps this has to do with the large sovereign debt of Greece and other European nations coming due being rolled over into the latter part of Q1 and early part of Q2 but I’m still biased to the negative despite all the “good” economic news lately.
