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 ($CAN).
Most of our issues were up today as we took an additional position in uranium company Energy Fuels ($UUUU) and the biotech firm IMV Inc. ($IMV) . Keeping an eye on Bitcoin, Oil, Gold and Silver here, but with the summer doldrums in full swing we’re not expecting any big moves.
Commodities are back in vogue – well at least for now.
Uranium is starting to glow again. Sold more Energy Fuels $UUUU Sept $6 Calls today. Bought some Energy Fuels $UUUU Oct $6 Calls today. Need a play on Dennys ($DNN) but its in no mans land. Tried writing some Sept puts @ $1 but not a lot of meat on that bone. C’mon Dennys.
After yesterdays craziness with the #silversqueeze things are settling back to normal in the silver and uranium markets. Ho-hum. And what have we here? Is crypto catching a bid? Bitcoin is at $34,964 as I type this – interesting… we did see Canaan ($CAN) one of our new kinetic rockets and our crypto play move higher.
We’ve been huge fans of silver for years now, so it goes without saying that we were very intrigued by #silversqueeze trending on Twitter over the weekend.
Today during my lunch break I went down to my local coin shop to see what all the fuss was about. The parking lot was full, but there were only a few people in line outside the building. I called the phone number listed on the sign and eventually got to a live voice. She took my name and phone number, and I received a text a few seconds later. I was #37 in line and my estimated wait time was 4.5 hours!
OK, things were getting a bit more real. I went to McDonalds for some lunch, and then went home and jumped on Apmex.com. Silver Eagles were selling for $41 each – a $12 premium over spot!
Ultimately I decided to skip the line at the local shop and buy a few online for an outrageous premium.
If you are wondering if the #silversqueeze is real, it is.
Well, not much is going on in the Uranium and Silver markets these days. Uranium and Silver are rangebound and don’t seem to want to do much of anything these days. For us, thats OK since part of our kinetic rockets strategy is writing out of the money covered calls – which will expire without being assigned if this sleepy action continues.
In other news, bitcoin seems to be retracing some of its surge as of late. As of this writing its at $30,943. We would love to see it retrace all the way back to $23K – for us, that would be go time, however that may never happen. We’ll see.
