2022 Week 47 investing and trading report

The year is coming to an end. I expected it to be a bad year for our investing and trading. But looking back, our portfolio didn’t do badly. Yes, we are down overall, as many positions are underwater, but we increased our positions. We generated enough options income, which we reinvested into stocks, and increased Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 47

We have many open SPX trades that, earlier this year, went in a bad direction. These trades are now in the money. I adopted box trades to help fix these trades. A box trade is a strategy that can be used in many ways. It can be used as a bond (when you buy a Continue reading →

2022 Week 46 investing and trading report

I feel like the markets are easing their bearish stance. They are still extremely volatile and choppy intraday, but we are poised for a rally that may last until the end of this miserable year. Our investing and trading last week reflected this stance. We opened a few small credit spreads against our holdings to Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 46

Last week was hectic trading. The markets were flat overall, but intraday, they were choppy and unpredictable. Trading SPX was difficult. We didn’t open any new trades; rather, we managed the old ones to let them expire worthless. That cost some money as many of these trades are debit trades. But in the past, we Continue reading →

2022 Week 45 investing and trading report

I could not report my investing and trading from a week ago because of my travels. I didn’t make many new trades that week, but the last week I started opening new ones and adjusting existing ones. These adjustments were mostly for debit but improved the trades significantly.   Our NetLiq-cash-buying power ratio is improving, Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 45

I skipped the report while traveling a week ago (week 44). Last week, I traded little, only adjusting a few SPX trades that needed our attention. Our goal is to be able to let those trades expire OTM. Other trades offset all rolls we did, yet we ended negative last week.   Our trades delivered Continue reading →

2022 Week 43 investing and trading report

Last week was a successful trading and investing week. We traded many new options trades and opened new stock positions, trying to take advantage of the selloff in those stocks. I think, long term, these will pay off well.   Our NetLiq-cash-buying power ratio is improving, allowing us to accumulate more shares:     Our Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 43

Last week I traded a few SPX trades only. Most of them finished as winners, but the last one had to be rolled as the market jumped up too much. I didn’t expect that. Now I will not be opening any new trades until this one is gone, plus I will be repairing the old Continue reading →

2022 Week 42 investing and trading report

I traded very little last week. Instead, I was accumulating shares of stocks I want to own, such as Microsoft (MSFT), Amazon (AMZN, right now, when we are seeing CFAs and other people predicting Amazon to go bankrupt, again, it is time to accumulate this stock), Main (MAIN), and others.   Our NetLiq-cash-buying power ratio Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 42

Last week we opened only two SPX trades and one adjustment. All trades finished for a nice profit. If the market continues higher for the year-end, we may have more successful trades.   Our trades delivered a $367.00 gain. Our account weekly trading is up by 0.99% while SPX gained 4.74%.   Our SPX account Continue reading →
