Today’s Trades: EOG and DCR

I bought 200 shares EOG at $118.54 today. The setup is a classic breakout pullback play on a stock exhibiting a strong volume pattern.

Now for the speculative play I spoke of in a previous post. I bought 500 shares of DCR at $8.64. DCR is a “down oil” ETF. It’s basically a way to short crude oil.

This trade is entirely speculative and is not based on my usual trading setups. In fact, I rarely go against a well defined trend unless there are signs of an impending breakdown.

  2. I was reading the message board (yahoo) on DCR and saw multple post on some stipulation with DCR if oil hits 111 for three days. I normally take all message board material as worthless, but you might want to just read up on it and take a look at DCR filings. See if it changes your decision. Thanks for the post. Read your blog everyday.
