Some days I feel like that guy on Swamp People – who sets hooks with bait on them for gators and then checks and resets em day after day… only I set the bull and bear traps with bid and ask price spreads to capture implied volatility in the form of covered calls and cash covered puts.
Today I bought some Denison ($DNN) and did some bull calendar spreads on Energy Fuels ($UUUU). Most of my hooks came up empty.
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).
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.
Elon Musk sent crypto soaring today with his announcement that Tesla bought $1.5 billion in bitcoin. Also, uranium continues to catch a bid with stocks trending much higher today on the back of gains on Friday.
Our crypto kinetic rocket Canaan ($CAN) was up big today, along with our uranium kinetic rockets Energy Fuels ($UUUU) and Denison Mines ($DNN).
Finally, Denison did announce some ramp-up of its Wheeler River evaluation plans today here.
Was it the Uranium? Was it the Vanadium? Was it the Rare Earth Elements? We don’t know exactly, but what a day for Energy Fuels. Things seem to be looking up for this provider of elements needed to power the 21st century. Perhaps thats why it is our largest kinetic rocket.
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.
Denison Mines, one of our kinetic rockets, reported some drill results today, including some new high grade uranium mineralization four kilometers northwest of the Phoenix deposit. Drill hole WR-741AD2 also contained some high grade nickel. Here is the full press release:
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.
