My Current Commodity Futures Positions - 8/31/08

A contemplation on my trades from the week that was:
  • Shorted the British Pound (again) - Roll over, Sterling! The trend is my friend, the trend is my friend, the trend...bad economic data keeps on coming from the UK. This move was long overdue.
Other existing positions I've got:

***"Cash out" mostly means taxes, but lately I've also been using it to pay down my credit cards a bit. Why credit card debt? I'm financing a startup and trying to outpace my CC interest rate in the futures markets - kids, don't try this at home.
