I am going to maintain this theme all week in expectations of an exit of all positions by next week.

The opening dip this morning took us out of the U.S. Steel position when the stop was hit at $57.30. We lost three cents on the position. It never really took off and traded sideways for the last week.

VMWare spiked $2 in a weak market to extend our gains. The dollar is down hard overnight and gold is up so Freeport should continue to climb if those trends continue.

No new plays and I raised the stops again.
