September 2016 trading, investing, and dividends results

September seemed again to be a slow month, yet it ended very nice with a great income from trading options. In September, we made $5,083.50 in premiums!

August 2016 trading, investing, and dividends results

August was a bit slow and my investments stalled. Many of my trades turned against me and I had to wait longer for them to end or expire than expected.

July 2016 trading, investing, and dividends results

When I finished June with $2,331.00 income I thought “that was it!” It was a great income and I haven’t expected that I could ever exceed it. I hoped, I could beat it by a thousand and finish July 2016 month at around $3,000 dollar income. But by July 10 my account was making $2 Continue reading →

June 2016 trading, investing, and dividends results

May 2016 trading, investing, and dividends results

At first, May 2016 trading started slow and I had a very low expectation of it. Many of my trades got in the money and I had to roll them away in time. I thought I would not be able to repeat my income from the previous month. But then the trades turned all around Continue reading →

My Strategy update

Time to update my strategy. Again. I know it sounds weird but yes, I need to update my strategy, because the one I wanted to use showed up to be a dead end. I was trading naked puts at some point against dividend stocks but later I turned into spreads. When analyzing why I found Continue reading →

February 2016 trading, investing, and dividends results

February 2016 is over. To me it marks a new milestone in my trading career. In my past posts I mentioned that if I will not be able to make profit trading options against SPX, I stop trading this strategy. This time has arrived. I tried hard. I tried everything I could to make my Continue reading →
