WHAT DO I EXPECT NEXT WEEK (Dec 2 – 6)?

During this holidays season I was lazy at home and had not have much time (and will) to do any review of the market and our positions. So, I will keep it simple today: The markets broke up through their resistances recently and they are in clear uptrend (see SPX chart and IWM charts below). Continue reading →

WHAT DO I EXPECT NEXT WEEK (Nov 24 – 29)?

After a Friday’s strong rally a week ago the market went up on Monday and then stalled. I mentioned to be cautious although I believed we had room to upwards ①. After that, the market went mostly down ②.       But, it was evident, that this market was not in panic, it was Continue reading →

WHAT DO I EXPECT NEXT WEEK?

The market rallied to 3100 as I expected last week. It was probably a bit too fast though. Now, that we are at this level, what’s next? I think, we still have some room to go higher, unless Trump spoils it with his trade wars, which I think is less likely since he now has Continue reading →

Equity Options

One trading strategy does not work all the time and in every market. There will be time when one strategy stops working and another strategy has to be used while waiting for new opportunity to trade the first strategy again. We traded SPX options lately, Iron Condors, Put Spreads, Call Spread, or Iron Flies, but Continue reading →

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 →

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 →

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 →
