2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 26

I was aggressively adjusting my SPX trades last week. I was using a “box” trade strategy to generate income and then used that income to roll the trades that were in the money. So far, this is the best way I could come up with to fix bad trades. I hate taking losses so unlike Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 25

Last week’s SPX trading strategy was again mostly about adjusting our old trades than trading new ones. The goal is to let the old trades expire one by one before we resume opening new trades. It will be a difficult task as many of our previous trades got deep in the money and need time Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 24

Trading SPX strategy is challenging this year and very frustrating. I am not opening any new trades but managing the old ones as I got caught with those trades rapidly getting under the water. Should I have closed those trades for a loss? Some traders would. I have a loss aversion, so I decided to Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 22-23

My family and I went on a vacation a week ago, so I skipped the SPX report a week ago. This report will be a combination of both weeks. Surprisingly, the trading week ago and last week were not as bad as I thought they would be. We managed to roll the trades, and in Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 21

Last week I didn’t trade SPX much, just tried to stay afloat. I mostly rolled the trades away and created box trades. That is a trade where a short call has the same strike as the long put and the short put has the same strike as the long call. This way the structure resembles Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 20

I expected 2022 year to be slow and not as profitable trading as 2021 but what is happening this year is outstanding. Nevertheless, our SPX trading is doing well so far although it is very difficult trading. I am adjusting trades to get busted again. This is one of the reasons why as an investor Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 19

This selling is becoming frustrating. Our SPX trading strategy held relatively well, mostly because I didn’t trade much. All I did was sit tight and manage trades that needed adjustment. I only opened Friday trade and used the collected credit to help offset another trade that needed adjustment. Next week, I will be doing the Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 18

For 18 weeks ur SPX PCS strategy performed well while the market was selling off. It was not an easy journey this year. When I started this strategy at the end of 2021 I hoped for a better start and large profits. The market had a different opinion. Despite heavy selling, we finished up by Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 17

Our SPX PCS strategy finished up by 1.71% while SPX lost -3.27%. Last week was a horrible week. As pundits and media say, it was the worst week since 2008. There seems to be no end to selling pressure. Our account performed well but I do not feel happy about it because it was very Continue reading →

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 16

Our SPX PCS strategy finished up by 24.27% while SPX lost -2.75%. Last week was a horrible week. The market lost over 5% in two days based on fear of the FED raising rates “too aggressively”. But our account was up significantly. But there is nothing much to celebrate. All I was doing was adjusting Continue reading →
