    Decided not to trade last night because I thought the markets moved way too much during the day.
    BIG mistake.

    Dollar plunged at 6 EST, which caused gold to surge, and all other currencies with it. :eek:

    My BTI options collar should be worth around $231 this morning.
    I think I'll close it out early this morning, and put on another one later today.
    Dividend coming out on 12/21...I'll keep holding this stock.

    Not the best trading day I've had, but a green day is a good day :laughing:
    I hate scalping for small amounts, but on days like today, it's about the only thing I can do.....so far.

    Of course, while I was typing this, I missed a $600 profit on gold :tongue:
