April-May 2023 $100 Challenge account review, entering in 3rd year of the program

Our “Challenge account” program finished the second year and we are entering the third year of growing the account from $100 to $75,000. These first two years were extremely challenging. We started the program at the end of 2021 when all was good and great. But then, in 2022 the bear market hit and our program got hit too. But that is the part of investing. We will see years when the markets will not cooperate and we will see drawdowns. We had bullish trades open and when the bear market hit, we had to close them for a loss. It also will be happening. And we have to be prepared for it and accept it as normal.

We kept trading and buying dividend stocks. And our account started recovering sharply. The charts below show that although we are still under water, the balance started improving significantly. We are almost break even. If the trend continues, we will be able to surpass and grow our account above the projected goal.

This program is for subscribers only and we send our trade signals and newsletters every week. As the market improves, I expect more trading to happen unlike during the bear markets when we go mostly dormant and preserve the capital.


Accumulation phase

The account is still underperforming our goal but started improving again. We are investing in stocks of our interest and building equity positions. We also started selling Iron Condors and spreads.

From the chart above, the red dot (line) indicates the current account value, compared to the blue line (plan). Our account is underperforming our goal. But it started improving and going up again. We will keep buying assets and monetize them once we accumulate enough shares.
