April 2015 trading, investing and dividends results

April 2015 is over and I am going back to reporting my results. I wasn’t much consistent in reporting in the past as many times I either didn’t have time or was lazy to write a report. I am still looking for the best way to report my results but keep it simple since at Continue reading →

$SPX market expectation for May 1st 2015

Today we saw a big sell off on Wall Street. Media say it was because of bad economic reports we saw recently from big companies. Who knows what caused this crash, but the reality is that we are now oversold. I do not expect much from this market as we again failed to move higher Continue reading →

$SPX once again fails to break the resistance. Another fall down is likely, read why!

Last week the market broke the descending resistance (the top of the falling triangle) which gave hope to many investors turning bullish. I myself was also fooled by this market (again) into believing that we finally see a break out. Friday’s trading moved the markets into the new all-time-highs and I decided to reverse my Continue reading →

Closing Bear Call Spread against WYNN one week earlier for 13.79% profit

Today I was able to close my Bear Call Spread against WYNN for a profit. I put this trade on via newsletters on October 16, 2014 with expiration next week.

During last week and the week before I opened a few new trades against SPX, TWTR, and VMW. All of the trades against SPX & TWTR expired today for a full profit.

Why I trade options and even learn futures?

Why I trade options and even learn futures?

I got this idea to write about my reasons for trading options when reviewing monthly results of other investors, such as Dividend Hut, Dividend Mantra, Roadmap2retire, and many others. I regularly review my peer’s investing progress as that motivates me for further strive reaching my goal. Humans are competitive creatures, so seeing other investors really Continue reading →

Is my struggling finally over?

Is my struggling finally over?

If you had a chance to read my “Curious history of a sucker” you know that I started investing back in 1996 and took many endeavors in losing money. I shrank my $30,000 dollars account to $4,000 in commodities trading, I lost another circa $15,000 in stock trading. But at that time I didn’t care Continue reading →

New Trade: Bull Put Spread: DEC14 TEVA

New Trade: Bull Put Spread: DEC14 TEVA

Today I opened a new trade against TEVA. The stock recently triggered a break out from a longer term squeeze and both indicators I watch are pointing for an uptrend move. Both indicators (Bollinger bands and Keltner channel) provide me with 70% chance that the stock movement direction will follow indicator’s direction. And because I Continue reading →
