I'm going to take an even 70 percent gain for drys tomorrow if it gets to 3.59 and still holding the other 50 percent in dnn. So if drys gets to 3.59 at some point tomorrow I will have 85 percent of my total to play with on my last trade right?

if you sell drys the you can make another 50% play, just keep track of the overall gain and loss..dont worry about compounding or number of shares.

So if you sell DRYS at 3.59 and calculate your gain then you are up half of that vs the overall portfolio since it is half your total position.

You can make 3 full trades, so 6 half trades..that is a full trade meaning buy and sell.

Good trade buck, I have no idea how it is at 25 given how crappy natural gas is price wise.

That's what I get for being an idiot. It did a u-turn right when I hopped on! I guess I was the only person that thought the VIX had bottomed out, or soon will be.

CHK is hurting as well they should.

If you like to time the bounce, try UNL, thats the 12 month nat gas futures ETF..

i'd suggest HES on the energy front...it is supremely undervalued and should bounce soon.

I'm going to sell my DNN @ 1.90..bought at 1.4 so it's a 35 % gain, ut it was only 50% of my bank so 17.5% gain.

Updated Dnn(17.5%), Drys(35%) so I'm sitting at a 52.5 % total gain with still 50% of my bank in STEM and no more trades left.
