ALso silver broke up as I expected.It is a nice run so far, I am still long it, but when there is sell off in the equities, the precious metals are hammered too. So today I bought a turbo short aex index for a hedge in case of a disaster.
Natural gas had a short term(maybe long term?) bottom, which was difficult because I got in around 3.75 and heavily at 3.93 , and then it fell back to 3.8 at some point but bounced back. Sold most of my position around 4.15, and hoping to short it around 4.5 , the very long term down trend.
Natural gas week:
I first lost on cotton short but then short it again around 220 and bought back 187 yesterday. Overall did not make or lose any money but a good experience to learn the market.

I lost some money on dax turbo longs as I got in the market around 50 day MAs(7100). Dax went down almost 15% from the high. Was really painful. But overall it was a good month.
