I play poker and trade options, seeking edges from study, reflection and analytics.

#002 YNDX Calls Closed Profit

Trade Details: Sold to close 5 Sep 16th Yandex N.V. (NASDAQ:YNDX) 21 calls for $2.05 (in at $1.20 for 17 days), $1,017.31 total proceeds. The trade executed at 13:17:39 when the stock was approximately $22.65.

Return: 67.4% after commissions

Note: While a successful trade, this was a missed exit. Four days ago, while still in the ascending channel and after a nice run, the technicals (MACD, Stochastics, Momentum and RSI) showed bearish divergence and long-legged doji appeared. Big bearish volume in the September options came in two days ago. Since then, a descending triangle formed; with all of the preceding information, I didn't wait until confirmation to book my "remaining" profit.

Status: Account $1,050.06 | Q1 Return 110.0% | Q1 Goal 60%
