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.

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”.

2022 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 15

Last week,the SPX PCS strategy finished down by -0.50% while SPX lost -2.13%. It was because we didn’t trade much. Our strategy is directional and we trade to the upside.
