We wrote bull calendar spreads on Riot Blockchain ($RIOT), Innovio Pharmaceuticals ($INO), Transocean LTD ($RIG) and Energy Fuels ($UUUU)

Today we wrote bull calendar spreads with the October / December paper on Energy Fuels ($UUUU). We also wrote some bull calendar spreads with the weeklies on Riot Blockchain ($RIOT) and Innovio Pharmaceuticals ($INO). We picked up a few $DNN and would love to see our bids get filled at $0.10 for the October $1.50 paper there.

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.

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)
We bought a bit of everything today: Energy (Energy Fuels $UUUU, Denison Mines $DNN and Transocean LTD $RIG), Crypto (Riot BlockChain $RIOT) and BioTech (IMV Inc. $IMV and Innovio Pharmaceuticals $INO)
