Quarterly reporting

August is over. My trading was in a “damage control” mode as my trades got whipsawed. I made money, but not as much as I wished for. I also adjusted my trades to long term trades (45-60 DTE), although I take 0-2 DTE trades too but very little. I also reduced amount of trades to Continue reading →

June 2019 financial freedom report

June 2019 finished fast and sound. I was following my path to financial freedom strictly, although I must admit, I got a bit greedy and did a few adjustments to collect more credits. These adjustments were not necessary and could potentially endanger my efforts to become financially free. I am aware of this deficiency and Continue reading →

Strategy update

The recent strategy I adopted for my 5 year plan to freedom works perfectly. Well, I knew it would work. I have traded that strategy for about two years earlier in the days when I started trading options. That’s what I was taught by my mentor. I might have been financially free already if I Continue reading →

May 2019 financial freedom report

May 2019 is over. For many this month was very difficult and a lot of people lost money, that was at least, what I have read in Facebook Groups. Of course, there were savvy traders and investors who made money in this volatile market. I made money too. In this month I met the goal Continue reading →

My 5-year Plan to Freedom Update

At first I didn’t want to post the entire plan to my freedom because I was afraid. The numbers in the plan look so ridiculous that I was afraid that after posting the whole plan it would be ridiculed. So I decided to post it only a year by year. I would post a year Continue reading →

April 2019 financial freedom report

April 2019 is in the books. In this month I met the goal as planned. There were a few changes I made which modified the entire plan:   1) I decided to combine my trading accounts into one.

Fed up with my own lack of discipline, putting down a plan to reach FI

I started trading and learning trading options in 2010… I think it was 2010. I made money, lost money, made money, lost them again.   In 2012 I thought I knew everything. I didn’t.   In 2014 I started my own trading business. I though I knew everything. I didn’t.   Then I made money Continue reading →

Lending Club’s spike in defaults is a dead investment

When I started with Lending Club many years ago (pretty much when LC started) I was excited. I saw it as a great addition to my investment portfolio. I had a control over the notes I was invested in and I liked it. Then came some changes and investing in Lending Club’s notes changed to Continue reading →

You will never please everyone… not at Wall Street

I borrowed this from Chris’s twitter: You often hear “when the Fed is raising rates, it is bad for stocks”, [it is bearish]. Now with the possibility of future rate cuts, we hear “you do not want to be long stocks when the Fed starts cutting rates,” [it is bearish].   You often hear "when Continue reading →

Topping pattern?

The market was doing well in the morning but at about 10 am MT it went into a spiraling selloff. After the fact, the media told us why. Great to know, now I can sleep better. But later on the market started recovering the loss. The market lost -1.34% intraday. It recovered a bit and Continue reading →
