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 ($RIG) next Friday. These positions are starting to move, so we will give them room to run with deep out of the money calls and options on the flipside as they do.
As Phil Collins once sang, “I can feel it coming in the air tonight…” – is the reflation trade coming back? It feels like energy and precious metals have bottomed, and bitcoin is starting to rise again… but then again, look at Iron Ore dropping like a rock – who knows?
Today we bought Energy Fuels ($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)
Crypto was straight fire on market open this morning. Its cooled off a bit tonight with bitcoin at $45,459. We did a buywrite @ $38.50 and bought longer dated calls on the flipside with Riot Blockchain ($RIOT) – will we get assigned? your guess is as good as mine. Its pretty much a coin flip at this point.
Meanwhile, energy is no bid cause Covid and China. Time to buy more Transocean ($RIG) common?
Finally, Denison Mines won’t budge, so we’re writing the cash secured puts @ $1.00 and writing $1 calls on the flipside.
Well it was a blah day today in the market. Bitcoin has cooled off a bit here at $38.032 as of this writing. We purchased more uranium today. Nice pop in Energy Fuels ($UUUU) at the end of the day, we’ll see if it holds. Price action in Transocean ($RIG) was weird today, but we are still bullish oil longterm.
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)
