May 2017 options income

May 2017 is over and it is time to report how we did with our options trading. My plan for April 2017 was to make $1,966.19 dollars of income. This month we weren’t able to reach the goal as we received only $1,475.59 dollars of option income. Overall, May 2017 showed us a stagnation in Continue reading →

May 2017 dividend income

May is over and it is time to once again review our dividend income in our ROTH IRA account. It was again another successful month as our annualized dividend income increased. We haven’t received as many dividends as in April but it still was a successful month. In our ROTH IRA we collect income from Continue reading →

How much money to trade for a living?

I decided to take a second part time job to raise capital. At first, I planned using loans (and I did it and took two business loans to use them for investing and trading) but the loans put a lot of pressure on my trading. Our accounts do not have large enough capital to generate Continue reading →

April 2017 dividend income

April dividend and options trading in our ROTH IRA account has been very successful. From the dividend income perspective it was the best month so far. Both incomes also helped the account balance growth although the stock market shows a lot of bearishness and fear. However, last few days in the markets boosted the value Continue reading →

March 2017 options income

March 2017 trading turned out to be successful again although at first not expected. As I mentioned in my previous posts about options trading I dedicated this year to consolidate my trades from previous year. I opened a few trades which I no longer like and I got stuck in those trade by first over-trading Continue reading →

March 2017 dividend income

March 2017 is over. It was quite fast. I almost haven’t noticed. And many things happened in March. Good or bad. But financially, I did well and actually better than expected; both in dividend income and options trading income. This month, we received $85.86 dollars in dividends. It is slightly less dividends than last month. Continue reading →

February 2017 options income

February 2017 trading went well. I opened a few very profitable trades which allowed me to close some “skeletons in the closet” mainly WYNN trades. That meant taking a loss but I am happy about it because that helped me to reduce exposure in that stock and still be profitable. Again, I expected $1,605 dollars Continue reading →

This month, we received $87.79 dollars in dividends. I am happy about it for two Continue reading →

January 2017 options income

Trading options in January ended very well. I definitely didn’t expect such results. At first it was slow and much of our cash was tied to other trades and I didn’t expect freeing them for trading. In fact, they are still blocked by those trades. I expected barely $1,200 income, although I planned for $1,500 Continue reading →
