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 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 31

Last week, I didn’t trade SPX trades much. I only opened two trades and mostly was sitting on my hands waiting for those trades to expire which will be happening next week and two weeks later.

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 →

2022 Week 29 investing and trading report

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 →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 28

Our SPX trading started improving significantly. Our measures of opening box trades delivered enough credits in the past few weeks to offset trades that were deep in trouble. We could roll them down and use the credit to do so. Now, these trades are expiring out of the money, releasing buying power and allowing us Continue reading →

Last week in the markets was calm and that was very positive for our SPX trading. We rolled one trade into a new box and rolled other trades to make them better positioned for expiration this upcoming week.
