Punting Crude Long

The chart of the U.S. oil fund, ticker USO (chart above) shows a possible bottom. As my notes indicate we have made a higher low and then gapped up (on volume) with the gap now open 3days. I am using this strength, the lull is volume the past 2 days, and the fact the gap is now open 3 days to get long 1 unit of crude. I will do this via my preferred vehicle, the Proshares Ultra DJ crude, ticker UCO, here at $7.70

It is my intention to add a 2nd unit on a move above $8.25 and preferably a close there.

Housekeeping notes;

I am moving my stops up on SRS to $92.87 and $75.42 respectively.

Good speculating to you all and never forget that "an investor is a speculator who made a mistake and will not admit it".
