January 2023 SPX put credit spreads trading review

The last trading month was rolling trades and adjusting the old ones only. We were not opening any new trades at this point. We had many trades that we rolled, and we do not want to add more risk until the old trades are fixed. We use “box” spreads to collect credit and use that Continue reading →

January 2023 Investing and Trading Report

I decided to post my monthly investing and trading reports instead of weekly ones. It is too much time-consuming writing about my investments every week, mainly when I also write a newsletter and do research for it. That takes a lot of time. January 2023 was a good month when our portfolio recovered many 2022 Continue reading →

2023 Week 01 investing and trading report

The first week of 2023 is over, and the markets started looking promising again. The same could be said about my trading and investing, except that Tasty Works broker sucks at calculating and displaying a correct buying power, so I have no idea whether I had money or not to trade. They have a problem Continue reading →

2022 Week 51 investing and trading report

Last week we bought back a few shares I sold to release my buying power, such as Netflix, ABNB, and Google. But when the market tanked again, I had to sell Google again. However, I plan on buying these shares back. I also traded credit call spreads that delivered gains. I will reinvest these gains Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 51

Last week we were not trading any new trades. We only had two box trades expiring, and because of the market’s sell-off, they were deep in the money. Adjusting these trades was not feasible, so I decided to let them expire ITM (calls expired OTM) and reopen new trades closer to the money, which will Continue reading →

2022 Week 50 investing and trading report

Our trading and investing last week went smoothly again. We opened a few credit spreads, and all expired out of the money. But as the market crumbled last week, I closed a few high-flying stock positions like Amazon or Netflix. I did it to protect my net liq and am ready to buy back when Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 50

I didn’t have time to record my SPX trades last week, and when I reviewed them later, I thought last week’s trading would be a disaster. I rolled many trades for debit, and I couldn’t see any way that the last week’s trading would end up positive. I also opened two box trades to offset Continue reading →

2022 Week 49 investing and trading report

Our trading and investing last week went smoothly. We opened a few credit spreads, and all expired out of the money. We didn’t buy shares last week as I am trying to keep cash handy in case we see a recession. That will be my goal for the next year to raise cash so I Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 49

Last week’s SPX trading was frustrating. I took a few bearish trades as the signals were mixed to the bearish outcome. Toward the end of the week, the signals turned bullish, so I opened a bullish trade. But the market was so volatile that the outcome changed quickly and crashed within a few minutes before Continue reading →

2022 Week 48 investing and trading report

November 2022 is over, and it has been a good month so far. I can’t say that for the 2022 year. The year was bad. The account is down by 35%, and I do not expect it to improve much by the end of the year. But I am not bitter about it or feel Continue reading →
