Bulls on fire, incredible tape painting! 

2  nice NQ longs, and one ill-advised short that cost me 7.5 points.

 

Changing as I write this... bought 3 QQQ JAN 174 puts 

 

Holding my 6 QQQ calls, for as long as I can resist leaving those profits on the table to be grabbed ....instantly!

There is  a SQQQ chart occupying a quarter of the screen on an old desktop in the far corner of my desk ... and I keep being drawn to it this morning as QQQ soars. Can I resist not buying a few? I will try.

I will not. I'd rather miss this rally and wait until after the midterms to buy any tech stock.

Just daytrading until then.

This might morph into daytrading QQQ options.... I will go back to net long QQQ options if I can get a nice profit on the puts I opened today....
