The Accumulator Trade 1 Update 11 January 2011

The first trade in this Accumulator was the Purchase 100 contracts of Silver Wheaton Corporation (SLW) March 2011, Call Options, strike price of $42.00 for $3.30 for a cost of $33,000.00, which we opened on December 11th, 2010.

As we know silver prices experienced a bout of profit taking and Silver Wheaton promptly fell out of bed taking our Call Options to the wall. Well we have watched it and are of the opinion that silver prices will soon head north along with gold prices. This action should in turn lift our favourite stock out of the doldrums and hopefully set us on course to $40.00 plus and soon.
So late in today's session we decided to average down in an attempt to salvage the situation by increasing our position, which we did with the purchase of another 100 contracts of Silver Wheaton Corporation (SLW) March 2011, Call Options, strike price of $42.00 for $1.09 thus reducing our average cost to $2.19 per contract.

We will now observe the markets and update you as and when we think that there has been a significant change or comment on any of the factors that impact on our thinking or this trade.

We have a had a good break and are pleased to be back in the saddle as 2011 is shaping up to be a volatile year for all of us. However, the coming volatility should present us with opportunities to trade so we will need to be on the ball from now on in.

Hope that you and yours also had a good one and that you are 'up' for the year ahead.

Should idea this be a disaster then its back to the drawing board for us.

Our normal trading activity will carry on as per usual.

This exercise is not part of anything that the chooses to do.

Please regard as a bit of fun where we get to sweat and you get to chuckle.

Your decisions and your operating criteria is exactly that, its yours, your responsibility, you are accountable for your own actions, so go gently with them.

Over in the options trading pit, we now have 59 winners out of 61 trades, or a 96.72% success rate. If you have any questions regarding these trades please address them through their site where they will be handled quickly and I hope efficiently.

Thanks Bob - a great help. However although there is a symbol for every Covered Warrant in the UK there does not appear to be one for American options. A pity. Is there an easy way to find all US/Canadian gold mining co's offering options eg as Selftrade for Gold and Silver.
Good luck with your investing. Thanks again.

You could try Interactive Brokers, if they dont have what you want and etrade dont, then we are a tad stuck.

In today with 20 contracts of the March $42 Calls bought at $0.62...ok you can go up.

January 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMark

Wow, another big hit today. I averaged down at the end of the day, but I'm a little worried about noticeable decay setting in soon.

Are you guys of the opinion silver will break out soonish? Or is decay going to take us down? When do you see decay really accelerating? (i.e. the latest date we would want to hold these March Call options until).

Thanks. Let's hope for a reversal!

I suppose we can take into consideration that their earnings report is due in February or March (I believe). Hopefully sooner than later ;)
