2022 Week 30 investing and trading report

The market kept improving last week. Investors started feeling left behind and started chasing the market. A classic FOMO. However, on Friday, the market retreated. In the morning, it lost over 1% but recovered most of the losses. And the reason? Better than expected job data. Whether the job data were cooked or not, analysts Continue reading →

2022 Week 30 investing and trading report

The market responded precisely as I expected. Not sure if it was because of being a TA genius or pure luck. I would guess the latter one. Well, I started using volume profile analysis, and that helped me a lot in identifying supports and resistances, so I expected that the market would reach the $4,120 Continue reading →

July 2022 $100 Challenge account review

The stock market is still in a bear market but recovering fast. We need to wait a bit longer to see if this is just a bear market rally or an actual reversal. There may be a pullback now, but I think we are back on track to a bull market recovery. We got hit Continue reading →

2022 Week 29 investing and trading report

Our trading account started growing again, recovering from the bear market losses. Our stock holdings reached the previous highs, partially due to new holdings additions and partially due to recovery. I think the recovery will continue as I am convinced that the bottom of this bear market is already in. It still may take time Continue reading →

2022 Week 28 investing and trading report

Last week the stock market eased on the selling pressure, and we were able to increase positions in some of the beaten-down stocks and resume trading and not just adjust the old trades. If this trend continues, I expect even better trading results in the year’s second half. I added more stocks last week, resumed Continue reading →

The stock market is still in a bear market and has high volatility. That is why we are accumulating stocks right now and do not trade options. This market is not good for a small account, so we must wait before we resume trading. Until then we will just accumulate.   Accumulation phase   The Continue reading →

2022 Week 26 investing and trading report

June 2022 is over and the first half of the year with it. It was a horrible half of the year for trading. Even the 2020 slump was better than this. But I look at it positively and keep investing in good quality stocks as much as my buying power allows. I suspended trading risky Continue reading →

2022 Week 25 investing and trading report

Last week, our trading was not as successful as the week before. I still was battling with buying power issues and I had to close many trades early. I was closing them for a profit but smaller profit than expected and for debit. That debit lowered our options income by -$2,341.00. However, I could add Continue reading →

The market continues to suck… a lot. But our trading did well last week. Extremely well. We rolled a bunch of trades and made adjustments as needed. We also had many covered calls expired last Friday, which we will be reopening next week. But I still keep struggling with buying power and overall margin. My Continue reading →
