Current positions in our $100,000 real money account

This is the current state of affairs:

4 aspects are to be emphasized in the current positions:

  1. AMD is currently pushing our account the most
  2. RUT Butterflies are currently performing poorly due to a steadily rising stock market
  3. Options in wheat look dramatic but are very safe because they are covered by the wheat contract
  4. Options in oil are increasingly under pressure and are likely to be managed soon
