Today was the first day of Bitcoin being a national currency of El Salvador. To celebrate, Bitcoin dropped in price to $46,428 as of this writing – however we don’t expect Bitcoin to be left high and dry. In other news, uranium continues to roll with the Sprott Physical Uranium Trust train showing no signs of stopping.
We wrote bull calendar spreads on Riot Blockchain ($RIOT), Innovio Pharmaceuticals ($INO), Transocean LTD ($RIG) and Energy Fuels ($UUUU)
Uranium continues to shine as Sprott removes supply from the market at breakneck speed with their Sprott Uranium Trust vehicle. It will be interesting to see how spot moves next week – will it continue to march higher or take a breather?
In other news, bitcoin is back over $50K, gold and silver got a pop and will oil become more volatile with these missile attacks in Saudi Arabia?
Here we are in September of 2021. Uranium had some pretty good follow through from yesterday. Bitcoin is hanging around at $47K and Oil is at $68 / barrel. Today we wrote some Bull Calendar Spreads on Energy Fuels ($UUUU) and Denison Mines ($DNN). Given the bullish momentum, we are going to hang onto the calls we are generating into the fall. For uranium the future’s so bright, gotta wear shades.
The year was 1979, Michael Jackson was climbing the charts with hits like “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” and interest rates were climbing as well to as high as 11.2%. We haven’t seen that kind of inflation for decades… until recently. I was listening to a podcast with Jonathan Davis (shown here below) where he talked about a new era of rising rates. I tend to agree. We started the first leg up, we are pausing and now heading back up again.
As for our positions, we got called away on Riot Blockchain ($RIOT) and Innovio Pharmaceuticals ($INO) this week. We will get called away on Transocean LTD ($RIG) next Friday. These positions are starting to move, so we will give them room to run with deep out of the money calls and options on the flipside as they do.
It kinda feels like inflation is kicking in again. Bitcoin, Gold, Silver, Uranium are all seeing a bit of a rise. Is it a runaway train? Not yet. But we are coming out of the summer doldrums and we bought more of them today.
Uranium continues to creep higher as spot price rose to $33.50 thanks in part to the SPUT (Sprott Physical Uranium Trust) buying more of the physical commodity on the open market.
Today we sold calls / bought Energy Fuels ($UUUU), bought more Denison Mines ($DNN), sold calls / bought Metalla Royalty and Streaming ($MTA), sold calls / bought Innovio Pharmaceuticals ($INO), sold calls / bought Riot Blockchain ($RIOT) and sold calls / bought Canaan ($CAN).
As Phil Collins once sang, “I can feel it coming in the air tonight…” – is the reflation trade coming back? It feels like energy and precious metals have bottomed, and bitcoin is starting to rise again… but then again, look at Iron Ore dropping like a rock – who knows?
Today we bought Energy Fuels ($UUUU), Denison Mines ($DNN) and Transocean LTD ($RIG)
Everything we own was down again today, so we bought more… Energy Fuels ($UUUU), more Denison Mines ($DNN), more Innovio Pharmaceuticals ($INO), more Metalla Royalty and Streaming ($MTA), more Canaan ($CAN), more Transocean ($RIG), and more Mogo Inc. ($MOGO)
