How to manage and defend SPX Iron Condors

I created a great strategy for myself and I thought that the strategy was completely invincible. And it was running great and I was making money. I also created a defense strategy in case something would go wrong however, I never expected to use the defense. Until the recent sell off and market crash. Then Continue reading →

August 2015 trading, investing, and dividends results

August is gone and it is time to review my investing and trading effort again. This month was bad as far as results go. First in my trading account I was getting rid of bad trades from the beginning of the year I no longer wanted. I had a question from one investor why I Continue reading →

July 2015 trading, investing, and dividends results

July 2015 is over and it is time to review my trading, investing, and dividends results for the month. A month ago I adopted a new trading strategy, which works perfectly so far. It is however too early to judge. Also, the market is relatively calm (except a few sell offs) and I would like Continue reading →

June 2015 trading, investing, and dividends results

Another month is over and I am back to make a reflection of my trading and investing. Many times when I think everything is great and bright I get a snap from Mr. Market. He always reminds me that trading or investing is not easy way up. And it is not always a way up. Continue reading →

Path to nowhere continues. Where is SPX going tomorrow?

Monday was again as expected. I expected it to go higher at first to overcome Friday’s selling but then drift lower. At first the manufacturing data which came out better than expected but along with not so good economic data (mainly consumer spending) put the market on an upward trend. The market seems to love Continue reading →

Tech stocks are going to break out this week, will $SPX follow?

Tech stocks are about to break out in a big way, according to one top technician. “The Nasdaq Composite has outperformed the broader market this year, outpacing the S&P 500 [Index],” technical analyst Rich Ross said on CNBC’s “Trading Nation.” The Nasdaq Composite has rallied more than 7 percent year-to-date, while the S&P 500 is Continue reading →

May 2015 trading, investing and dividends results

Another choppy, crazy month in the stock market is over. It was a month about which people have a saying: “Sell in May and Go Away.” If you have done that, you would lose money. I watch other investors and traders at StockTwits to see what they have to say about the market. I found Continue reading →

Nothing exciting before GDP data adjustment.

The market did exactly what I expected. It went down and later recovered the selling. But the recovery wasn’t strong enough to push the market higher, so it ended down. Tomorrow we will see GDP revised. This may be a market mover. Will it be taken positively or negatively by the investors? Normally, I would Continue reading →

FED Conundrum

Sometimes I like to be wrong in my market move expectations. Like today. I expected the market to move lower yet it moved up. It recovered almost all losses from yesterday. I have a few long positions so it obvious that I wanted to be wrong in my expectations. It looks like, we have experienced Continue reading →

$SPX market expectation for Wednesday, May 27th

(05/26/2015 HS) – Market took a hit today. Quite large one, compared to the non-moves we have seen in previous days. The S&P 500 lost 1% today. It could have been more, but at the last hour the market rallied and erased some losses. Should we be worried? Hard to answer that question. The market Continue reading →
