March 2023 $100 Challenge account review

We didn’t trade much during this turmoil of the banking crisis, recession fear, and end-of-the-world imminency. Rather we preserved the cash. Remember, our account is still small and we cannot take risky trades (we did two times and it backfired, but we have time on our side). Also during the recent sharp market selloff (chart below), our buying power went negative (!!) and it was wise to stay in cash as much as possible and wait for this stupidity to end. And at some point, it will end. Investors will realize how dumb they were and start rushing back in propping the market back up.

Besides that, our Challenge account continues grinding higher, and as the market stabilizes, I expect it to improve more.

Accumulation phase

The account is still underperforming our goal but started growing again. We are investing in stocks of our interest and building equity positions. We also started selling Iron Condors and spreads. We got rid of QYLD stock, and we will no longer invest in this ETF as its performance is terrible, and its dividend income doesn’t look as enticing as it looks on paper. We want a stable company that provides some price appreciation and dividend growth. So we replaced QYLD with MAIN.

$100 Challenge account review

From the chart above, the red dot (line) indicates the current account value, compared to the blue line (plan). Our account is underperforming our goal. But I expect this to improve with the market. We will keep buying assets and monetize them once we accumulate enough shares.
