Review Of Open Positions – Futures

AlphaCapture

We exited two positions this week; our short 10yr position for a loss of $2,328.13 per contract, and our long Crude Oil position for a profit of $2,440.00 per contract. Despite those two exit signals this was a relatively quiet week after the previous week’s post-Fed fireworks. That in itself suggests to me we’re merely …

It also suggests a lack of new opportunities, as we stay patient awaiting confirmation. We remain SHORT 30yr, Dollar, and LONG S&P, NASDAQ, Euro, Oil. As a …
