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.

Options trading and investing strategy for 2019

Hedging credit spreads

Recently, well, in 2018, I started using hedges for my credit spreads. I wasn’t using hedging much in the past because I wasn’t sure how to use them properly and how to manage them.
