The market was weak and hopeful but today it broke


I prepare my newsletter about the market outlook during the week and I wrote this yesterday:

So far, this market has shown weakness. But a few things may turn this around – 4Q earnings season and good retail sales reports that will propagate into the earnings results and estimates. If that doesn’t save us, nothing will, and we go down.

If down we go is what we will see, then there will be a few stops. The first stop can be at $4,720, and the second at $4,520 level (or nearby). That was a pretty good stop before, so I expect it to hold if we see this. If not, further down we go. However, there is no catalyst for such a selloff.

Yesterday, little I knew that today, the stock market wouldn’t like what FED said at today’s FOMC meeting. The market sold off hard and quickly cleared the $4,720 support.

Because of today’s selloff, I reversed some of the SPX put spreads into call spreads (Monday and Tuesday put spreads), and adjusted a few stock strangles to stay delta neutral. But it can bite:
 

SPX market selloff

 
If the market is retesting the previous resistance at $4720 and we bounce from here, all those adjustments may give us trouble.

Why I like trading strangle strategies


Why do I like trading strangle strategies? The simple answer is – because I can roll them for credit. And it is easier to manage.

 

Why trading strangle is better?

 
Yes, any other strategy out there – spreads, be it Condors, single side spreads or even a single option such as call or put options are difficult to roll for a credit. And when rolling options trades, you want to roll them for credit! Always!
 

Exception to trading strangle strategies

 
There is only one exception to this rule when it is OK to roll for a debit – to a certain extent – covered calls. Why covered calls are OK to roll for a debit? You can do it as long as the gain on your stock offsets the debit while rolling the call. Otherwise, it is better to let your share be called away.

For example. You have a covered call with a $60 strike price and the stock moves to $65 a share. You do not want to have your shares called away and so you decided to roll your call away and up. You decide to roll into the next month and $70 strike. You pay a 0.39 premium to do it. Was it worth doing it? Well, you gave your stock a new ceiling. It trades at $65 and now you are willing to sell it at $70 a share. that is 0.50 gain per share or $50 for 100 shares. You paid 0.39 per share or $39 for 100 shares to roll the call. You are still positive. You can do it.

But what if you would have to pay a 2.89 premium (or $289) to roll the call? Well, now you are paying money out of your pocket and when you get called away at $70 a share, you still may see a loss (or at least reduced gains). And that is what I personally do not like to do. What to do then? Use strangles.
 

Rolling strangles

 
When selling strangles, you sell both sides. It is an Iron Condor but without protective long legs. People are extremely scared of using naked options but they are actually safer and easier to manage. When one side gets breached, you can roll your trade, and even if one side is a debit trade, the other side will be a credit trade, and most of the time that credit will be large enough to offset the debit side. Most of the time, you can roll a trade up and down as the market fluctuates, and many times, you will be able to do it within the same expiration cycle.

Here is an example of a rolling trade I did today:
 

Trading strangle - rolling

 
As you can see above, I could roll the existing strangle within the same expiration cycle, higher, and for credit. No other structure can do this for you. And when at some point I cannot roll within the same expiration cycle for credit, then I move the strangle trade to the next expiration cycle.

Sometimes, when the market is volatile, I roll my strangles multiple times. When you check my trading journal, you will see 20 or more rolls and expiration dates moved far away. Some people do not like it. They say that by doing so, I block too much capital for too long. True, but I also protect my capital. With strangles, the losses can be large if left alone without any management.

To me, once the trade goes bust, it is no longer about gains and percentages. It is now about preservation. If you do not want to manage a trade, then yes, trade spreads. Once a spread goes bust, you can convert it to an Iron Condor by adding the opposite side. That will help to bring enough credit to offset a roll so you may roll the touched side. Then you have one more management tool – converting your Condor to Iron Fly by moving untouched side close to your touched side so your shorts become a straddle (same strikes) which will bring some more credit, and after that, you are done. Let it go.

Not my cup of tea.

I have read (and heard) that there are some traders who roll their trades as long as they work for them and then they go out. If it means rolling some trades indefinitely, so be it. And I am one of those traders.
 

What are the disadvantages of trading strangles?

 
There are a few caveats to trading strangles. Although I love them, they are not always so great.
 

Trading strangles is expensive

 
Trading strangles is expensive. So it is better to use margin or if you have a large enough account, use covered strangle. What does that mean? Basically, trade cash-secured put side and covered call side. That’s it. But even with that, it still will be capital requirement heavy trading.
 

Naked strangles can be very volatile

 
If you decide to use margin trading strangles, be prepared for volatility. I am fighting with volatility all the time (partially because I am not disciplined and overtrade). And when volatility spikes, strangles can give you a really hard time. Many times, I had to roll a trade to make it neutral and release buying power, which on one hand is great – no margin call, on the other hand, hurts my trade by prolonging it or moving a trade that is not necessary to move, and makes my broker happy as he collects more fees. And sometimes, when volatility spikes, adjusting a trade won’t help at all. So, if you decide to use margin, keep enough cash in your account.
 

Risk to the upside

 
Although the downside (put side) is somewhat limited, the call side is unlimited. Although your broker tells you that the put side has unlimited risk, it is not true. The underlying stock can go to zero only, so your loss will be equivalent to the loss of a stock whether you get assigned or not. if your stock is trading at $30 a share and you sell $30 strike put and the stock goes to zero, you lose $3,000. You will never lose more than that.

On the other hand, the call side is truly unlimited. The stock can go from $30 a share to $300,000 a share and your losses can be more than what you have. So always try to trade strangles with your call side covered and if you cannot hold 100 shares, use stocks that are relatively safe – established companies, for example. Never trade it using penny stocks or high-flying meme stocks, or you may get busted.

Once I have read about a trader who sold a bunch of naked calls against a pharmaceutical stock that was trading for $3 a share. The trader was expecting the stock to go belly up and he would pocket nice profits on his worthless calls. But overnight, another company announced a merge and the penny stock opened at $37 a share in the morning. His losses were in hundreds of thousands of dollars. With no way to fix it.

Although this scenario is unlikely when trading established good quality stocks, the risk is still there. As an old adage says: anything can happen. So if you see your stock going up, roll your strangle with the stock to keep it delta neutral (or close to it) or start buying shares (that’s what big money funds do).
 

Hope this helps to explain why strangles are not as dangerous as many try to tell you and in fact, can be safer.

December 2021 $100 Challenge account review


Although the year 2021 is over, our Challenge account program’s fiscal year will end in May 2022. We are in month 7 of the program and as you will see below, we are tracking our goal as projected so far. The start of the options trading in the account was a bit challenging as our only position (AES) got increasingly volatile from day one and that threw a wrench into our trading. Later, the stock finally settled down and now it behaves as expected.

 
AES in Challenge account

 
At first, a sudden selloff in AES forced us to adjust our trade down to keep it safe. Then a huge recovery and rally up shook our trade again as we had to adjust again to the upside to avoid margin calls before the stock finally settled down again and worked in our favor. But these are occurrences that will be happening and every investor and trader must be prepared and have a plan B or a strategy in his/her sleeve to apply. No matter what the stock market throws at you, you must know what to do and accept any outcome.

Why? Because I have seen many impatient investors or traders that wanted results immediately. They are not willing to wait and give the stock or trade position required time to work in your favor. I have seen investors shocked seeing some of my trades with 200 or more days to expiration and saying that they would not block their money for such a long time. But when a situation like this happens and you have to roll your trade, it is then about capital preservation. If you can fix trade and give it more time to work out, I will do it. Mainly in an account where we cannot afford assignments because we are still too small to buy 100 shares of an underlying stock. That is the risk when trading a small account. As I said at the very beginning when trading small accounts, be prepared for everything in the stock market world to be set against you. Everything.

But we are progressing well and within our scheduled goal.

 

Accumulation phase

 
The account is slightly underperforming our goal but it is on the path to success. We are now trading small trades (strangles) and we will continue accumulating shares for our next options trade. The strangle trades are consuming collateral buying power but as they near towards expiration we will see a jump in BP and net-liq.

We are trading strangles because they are easier to manage compared to Iron Condors or spreads. It is why we are not engaged in trading SPX credit put spreads yet because these can be profitable but one trade against us can wipe our account. We are simply too small and undercapitalized for these types of trades. Strangles are also a bit more expensive as far as capital requirements go. That is why choosing good stocks to trade is crucial. Choose safe, stable stocks, providing enough premium and stability. And that is what we are doing.

$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 trailing our goal. When trading naked options, expect volatility in your net-liq. That can be seen by some as a disadvantage. When trading spreads, your net-liq will be stabilized by neutralizing delta. With naked options, you would have to choose other instruments to do so, for example owning stocks to neutralize your call side. We do not have this yet as our account is small, but we are building our position.

2021 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 52


The last week of the year 2021 was still positive with a bull market intact for our SPX trading. Also, our indicators were bullish, so we opened new trades although these trades are now in the money (not all of them, just two of the most recent trades), we think they will recover because the indicators are unchanged despite the market’s minor pullback. If they do not recover and the market continues down, we will close the positions.

Last week, the account increased 25% while SPX increased a little over 0.85%.

 

Initial trade set ups

 

For my SPX strategy, I dedicated a $3,600 initial amount that will be used to trade SPX PCS strategy per week. If this amount is depleted, I will evaluate the strategy if to continue or change it. If I grow this amount, I will scale up the trading.
 

WHAT WILL WE TRADE?    
DAY DTE TYPE
MONDAY 7 DTE Put Credit Spread
TUESDAY 30 DTE Put Credit Spread
WEDNESDAY 7 DTE Put Credit Spread
FRIDAY 60 DTE Put Credit Spread
EVERY MONTH 120 DTE Put Debit Spread – HEDGE

 

Last week trading

 

DAY SIGNAL TYPE TRADE STATUS
MONDAY Positive New 7 DTE trade opened
credit: $285
Exp: Jan3
TUESDAY Positive New 30 DTE trade opened
credit: $315
Exp: Jan28
WEDNESDAY Positive New 7 DTE trade opened
credit: $360
Exp: Jan5
FRIDAY Positive New 60 DTE trade opened
credit: $85
Exp: Feb28
EVERY MONTH No new trade

 

On Monday, our entry signal was positive so we opened a new 7 DTE trade. That trade is still out of the money but the market sits near the short strike. If on Monday selling continues, we will have to close the trade for a loss. If the market rallies, it will expire for a full profit.

On Tuesday, our entry signal was positive so we opened a new 30 DTE trade. The short strike is now in the money but the trade has 27 days to expiration. Since all indicators are bullish, we will wait.

On Wednesday, the market was positive and we opened a new 7 DTE trade. That trade is now fully in the money (both strikes). If the market continues down next week, we will have to close the trade for a loss.

On Friday, the signal for the 60 DTE trade was positive, so we opened a new 60 DTE credit spread. We didn’t open a new 120 DTE debit hedging trade this week as we will be opening the hedge monthly only.
 

Here are our delayed open trades:
 

SPX PCS delayed trades

The trades are two weeks delayed. If you want to see the most recent trades or receive alerts, subscribe to our SPX alerts.

HFEA December 2021 strategy report


In mid of November, I added the HFEA strategy to my portfolio. It took me a while to release funds to fund the strategy but at approximately mid of December I dedicated $15,000 (not exactly, it was slightly less but for now, $15k is my threshold) for this strategy. And here is my monthly strategy report.

As I mentioned above, I dedicated $15,000 for this strategy. It means that if a strategy underperforms and is below this threshold, I will add cash to it. If it outperforms and ends above this threshold, I will trim the position and save the cash aside.

The HFEA strategy is about investing in leveraged ETF but adding protection to the downside since the leverage works both ways. I like the idea because drawdowns can be significant.
 

Initial HFEA allocation

 
Start date: 11/27/21
Approach: Variable allocation* – 45%/55% SPXL/TMF
Rebalancing frequency: Quarterly*
Return (total / YTD): 0%/0%
Initial contribution: 15% of portfolio Net-Liq (~ $15k)
 

* Variable allocation will be adjusted based on the moving averages and VIX term structure. When moving averages turn negative (downside) and VIX turns into backwardation, the SPXL allocation will be decreased and TMF allocation increased.

 

Current HFEA allocation

 
Approach: 45% SPXL, 55% TMF
 

MONTH NET-LIQ PROFIT/
LOSS
PROFIT/
LOSS %%
November 2021 $13,441.91 $0.00 0.00%
December 2021 $14,773.72 $1,331.81 9.91%

2021 Week 52 investing and trading report – End of the year!


Wow, the year 2021 is over. I wish all my readers Happy New Year 2022! It was exceptionally good year. I made a lot of money this year trading options, buying dividend growth stocks, and reinvesting the dividends.

Overall, I achieved 60% ROI trading options, but if we take into account that I started the account with $20,572.35 and made $62,026 trading options, I achieved 301.50% revenue trading options!
 

Here is a picture from my tracking spreadsheet:
 

Options trading End of the year

 
So, as you can see, I was doing pretty well in 2021 trading options. Along with the stock holdings, that delivered an astonishing 408.67% Net-Liq growth in 2021. I hope, I will have 2022 as successful as 2021 although I do not expect it because, honestly, my trading was quite aggressive and I want to slow down next year.

Dividend Investing and Trading Report

 
Last week we have received $9.46 in dividends bringing December’s dividend income to $200.20. We didn’t buy any shares of dividend growth stocks last week. We only traded SPX credit spreads.

Here you can see our dividend income per stock holding:

Growth stocks Investing and Trading Report

 

Last week we didn’t buy any new positions in growth stocks.

 

Options Investing and Trading Report

 
Last week we rolled some of the trades that got their call sides breached as the market rallied. But we also bought a protective put against our BABA strangle trade. I no longer feel comfortable holding BABA naked. I think BABA will eventually go to $30 a share. BABA jumped up almost 10% last week but then it started selling again. Buying the protective put reduced our risk in case I am right and the stock goes bust (and I am no longer going to defend the position) unless the Chinese government changes their investment rules so they will be similar to the western countries rules, not necessarily those in the US. Until then, any Chinese company listed in the US is a tremendous risk to me and I am not willing to take it.

These adjustments and buying the protective put lowered our December income by -$1,411.00 bringing December at $8,667.00.
 

We were actively trading our SPX strategy that delivered $1,045.00 weekly income. However, the market stalled at the $4,800 level that acts as resistance. It then bounced down and some of our SPX positions are in the money. If the selling continues we may be closing those positions at a loss.

You can watch all our trades in this spreadsheet. You can watch the spreadsheet and look for a “NEW” indication next to the trading date. When the indicator shows up, it is typically good for up to 3 days to follow that trade.
 

Expected Future Dividend Income

 
We have received $9.46 in dividends last week. Our portfolio currently yields 4.70% at $104,644.64 market value.

 
Our projected annual dividend income in 10 years is $24,969.22 but that projection is if we do absolutely nothing and let our positions grow on their own without adding new positions or reinvesting the dividends.

We are also set to receive a $4,825.62 annual dividend income. We are 19.33% of our 10 year goal of $24,969.22 dividend income.

 
Future Divi on YOC week 52
 

The chart above shows how our future dividend income is based on the future yield on cost and what dividend income we may expect in the future. The expected dividend growth depends on what stocks we are adding to our portfolio and the stocks’ 3 years average dividend growth rate. It is interesting to see what passive income we may enjoy 10, 20, 25, or 30 years from now.

 

Market value of our holdings

 
Our non-adjusted stock holdings market value increased from $132,669.29 to $133,469.78 last week.

This is another great achievement of our 2021 investing journey. We diligently reinvested all our dividends and options premiums buying stocks and creating a snowball.

Here is another view of our investing progress and stock holdings growth:

 
Stock holdings growth
 

As you can see, we started the year with an $18,179.67 stock holdings value and grew our positions to $133,469.78.

 
Stock holdings week 52
 

Our goal was to accumulate 100 shares of dividend growth stocks we liked and then start selling covered calls or strangles around those positions. We also planed on reinvesting all dividends back to those holdings. We fulfilled our goal at 66%.

Here is what our goal was at the beginning of 2021:

 
Our 2021 goal
 

And here is how our goal evolved over time and how we accomplished it:

 
Our 2021 goal EOY
 

I am happy with the result but I hoped I could achieve more and buy more shares. But the goal was evolving and I focused on adding new strategies that postponed the goal too. Later when the markets became volatile I had to keep buying power available to sustain the swings (and sometimes I had hard times keeping my BP positive). Overall, I consider this a good achievement.

I will be moving unfinished goals into the 2022 year.

 

Investing and trading ROI

 

Our options trading delivered a 8.28% monthly ROI in December 2021, totaling a 59.27% ROI YTD. We again exceeded our 45% annual revenue selling options against dividend stocks target!

Our account grew by 408.67% beating our projections and the market.
 

Our options trading averaged $5,168.83 per month this year. If this trend continues, we are on track to make $62,026.00 trading options in 2021. As of today, we have made $62,026.00 trading options.
 

Old SPX trades repair

 

This week, we didn’t adjust our old SPX trades. Our goal is to reach a level where we will be eligible for portfolio margin (PM). Once that happens, we plan on converting the existing SPX Iron Condors to strangles and trade these positions as strangles.

With RegT margin, the capital requirements would be approx. $66,586.06 and that is beyond our means. With PM the requirement for margin would drop to around $10k. That is doable in our account. Once we reach this level, we will start adjusting our SPX trades accordingly. Until then, we will just roll these trades around.

We however traded our SPX put credit spread strategy which you will be able to review in my next report.

 

Market Outlook

 

The market rallied to the $4,800 mark as we predicted in our newsletter and then stalled. The $,800 level happened to become a strong resistance. Almost a book perfect resistance. The market tried to go above but retreated. But trading was light and pretty much quiet. VIX was down and the VIX structure indicates no troubles, also all our SPX trading signals were positive. So I think there is no need to worry. The current price action seems to be just a consolidation. But we need to wait for the next week.

Last week, S&P 500 grew 64.76% since we opened our portfolio while our portfolio grew 29.80%. On YTD basis, the S&P 500 grew 34.92% and our portfolio 22.82%.

The numbers above apply to our stock holdings only. Our overall account net-liq grew by 408.67% this year! This is thanks to options trading that generates income. It can be also seen how the options help lower our cost basis. Just compare the P&L in the regular (left) column with the P&L in the “Options adjusted” column. For example, our AES holding would be a loser as of today (down -7.31%), but we generated enough income (we can call it also a return of our invested capital) and that position is 133.29% up.

Dividend Investing and Trading Report

 
Last week we have received $54.51 in dividends bringing December’s dividend income to $190.74. We didn’t buy any shares of dividend growth stocks last week, but as we completed our HFEA accumulation goal, we will now focus on accumulating dividend growth and high-yield dividend stocks.

Our goal is to accumulate enough shares of RYLD this year and next year so the dividends will cover our mortgage monthly payments. At first, we will reinvest all dividends and premiums until we reach a $300 monthly payment (HELOC loan). Once we reach this goal, we will use the dividends to pay off our HELOC. At the current RYLD price and yield, we need to accumulate $36,000 and buy 1470 shares.

Here you can see our dividend income per stock holding:

Growth stocks Investing and Trading Report

 

Last week we didn’t buy any new positions of growth stocks.

 

Options Investing and Trading Report

 
Last week we rolled some of the trades that got their call sides breached as the market rallied.

These adjustments delivered $3,909.00 of additional options income bringing December at $6,169.00.
 

We were actively trading our SPX strategy that delivered $715.00 weekly income.

You can watch all our trades in this spreadsheet. You can watch the spreadsheet and look for a “NEW” indication next to the trading date. When the indicator shows up, it is typically good for up to 3 days to follow that trade.
 

Expected Future Dividend Income

 
We have received $54.51 in dividends last week. Our portfolio currently yields 4.49% at $102,249.29 market value.

 
Our projected annual dividend income in 10 years is $23,510.42 but that projection is if we do absolutely nothing and let our positions grow on their own without adding new positions or reinvesting the dividends.

We are also set to receive a $4,836.21 annual dividend income. We are 20.57% of our 10 year goal of $23,510.42 dividend income.

 
Future Divi on YOC week 51
 

The chart above shows how our future dividend income is based on the future yield on cost and what dividend income we may expect in the future. The expected dividend growth depends on what stocks we are adding to our portfolio and the stocks’ 3 years average dividend growth rate. It is interesting to see what passive income we may enjoy 10, 20, 25, or 30 years from now.

 

Market value of our holdings

 
Our non-adjusted stock holdings market value increased from $129,178.85 to $132,669.29 last week.

 
Stock holdings week 51
 

Our goal is to accumulate 100 shares of dividend growth stocks we like and then start selling covered calls or strangles around those positions. We also plan on reinvesting all dividends back to those holdings. I plan on doing this until the portfolio can deliver enough income to cover all living expenses and then start trading full-time.
 

Investing and trading ROI

 

Our options trading delivered a 9.86% monthly ROI in December 2021, totaling a 62.04% ROI YTD. We again exceeded our 45% annual revenue selling options against dividend stocks target!

Our account grew by 397.02% beating our projections and the market.
 

Our options trading averaged $5,286.42 per month this year. If this trend continues, we are on track to make $63,437.00 trading options in 2021. As of today, we have made $63,437.00 trading options.
 

Old SPX trades repair

 

This week, we didn’t adjust our old SPX trades. Our goal is to reach a level where we will be eligible for portfolio margin (PM). Once that happens, we plan on converting the existing SPX Iron Condors to strangles and trade these positions as strangles.

With RegT margin, the capital requirements would be approx. $66,586.06 and that is beyond our means. With PM the requirement for margin would drop to around $10k. That is doable in our account. Once we reach this level, we will start adjusting our SPX trades accordingly. Until then, we will just roll these trades around.

We however traded our SPX put credit spread strategy which you can overview in this report.

 

Market Outlook

 

Santa Claus finally arrived in the town and delivered its rally. Stocks recovered losses from previous weeks and with it, our net-liq recovered too. It was obvious that the selloff had no legs as the fear indicators showed that the market didn’t really care about Omicron or any other BS out there. I will write about this in my newsletter. So, if you want to know why I knew that the market will not repeat December 2018 selloff, subscribe to the newsletter.

2021 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 51


After a week of increased volatility, the stock market picked up the end of the year steam and rallied. I am pleased to see that my strategy of tactical trading the SPX spreads worked well and during the volatile downtrend the strategy kept me out of the trades and when the market finally turned around, I could enter the trades and profit well from those trades.

Last week, the account increased 20% while SPX increased a little over 2%.

 

Initial trade set ups

 

For my SPX strategy, I dedicated a $3,600 initial amount that will be used to trade SPX PCS strategy per week. If this amount is depleted, I will evaluate the strategy if to continue or change it. If I grow this amount, I will scale up the trading.
 

WHAT WILL WE TRADE?    
DAY DTE TYPE
MONDAY 7 DTE Put Credit Spread
TUESDAY 30 DTE Put Credit Spread
WEDNESDAY 7 DTE Put Credit Spread
FRIDAY 60 DTE Put Credit Spread
EVERY MONTH 120 DTE Put Debit Spread – HEDGE

 

Last week trading

 

DAY SIGNAL TYPE TRADE STATUS
MONDAY Negative No trade opened
TUESDAY Positive New 30 DTE trade opened
credit: $310
Exp: Jan21
WEDNESDAY Positive New 7 DTE trade opened
credit: $320
Exp: Dec29
FRIDAY Positive New 60 DTE trade opened
credit: $85
Exp: Feb28
EVERY MONTH No new trade

 

On Monday, our entry signal was still negative so we didn’t open a new trade.

On Tuesday, the market reversed and rallied in a very strong manner. At first, it looked like the signal would still be negative as the rally didn’t seem to be strong enough to turn the signal positive. But before the end of the day, the signal turned positive and we opened a new 30 DTE trade.

On Wednesday, the market was positive and we opened a new 7 DTE trade.

On Friday, the signal for the 60 DTE trade was positive, so we opened a new 60 DTE credit spread. We didn’t open a new 120 DTE debit hedging trade this week as we will be opening the hedge monthly only.
 

Overall, the strategy resulted in a $715.00 gain last week. Note that the gain might be unrealized as some or all trades may be still open.
 

Initial account value: $3,600.00 (Account inception: 12/07/2021)

2021 SPX put credit spreads trading review – week 50


After a year or two of testing and studying how to trade SPX efficiently and without losing money. I tested several strategies and although there were some losing trades, overall, the strategy I decided to trade with live money worked well.

The strategy is to sell put credit spreads (PCS) to generate income in lieu of Iron Condors. The reason was that it was usually the call spreads that got me busted. Many times, the index rallied relentlessly up, and to roll the spread higher I had to use put spreads to offset the cost. Thus I got closer to the money on the put side, the market sharply reversed, and the losses wiped out my account.

I also added indicators to help me to stay out of the market when there is a significant weakness and increased danger of the market going down. When the signal says to stay away, I do not open a trade. The test showed that by doing so I would avoid most selloffs in the market and be on the sidelines. And lastly, I added an SPX hedge trade that should protect my trades and my account against black swan events when the market crashes hard as it did in 2008 or 2020.

 

Initial trade set ups

 

For this strategy, I dedicated a $3,600 initial amount that will be used to trade SPX PCS strategy per week. If this amount is depleted, I will evaluate the strategy if to continue or change it. If I grow this amount, I will scale up the trading.
 

WHAT WILL WE TRADE?    
DAY DTE TYPE
MONDAY 7 DTE Put Credit Spread
TUESDAY 30 DTE Put Credit Spread
WEDNESDAY 7 DTE Put Credit Spread
FRIDAY 60 DTE Put Credit Spread
EVERY MONTH 120 DTE Put Debit Spread – HEDGE

 

Last week trading

 

DAY SIGNAL TRADE STATUS
MONDAY Signal positive Trade closed – LOSS
TUESDAY Signal negative No trade opened
WEDNESDAY Signal positive Trade closed – LOSS
FRIDAY Signal positive Trade OPEN
EVERY MONTH Signal positive December 21 trade OPEN

 

On Monday, our entry signal turned positive and we opened a new trade as per the rules. But on Tuesday, the market turned negative. In order to protect our investments, we closed Monday’s trade for a small loss.

On Tuesday, the signal was still negative so we skipped Tuesday’s trade.

On Wednesday, the market turned positive again which allowed us to open a new trade again. Unfortunately, on Thursday, the market sold off again so we got out for a small loss.

On Friday, the signal for 120 DTE trade was positive (it was negative for 7 DTE trades if we would take any on Fridays), so we opened our 120 DTE trade.
 

Overall, the strategy resulted in a $145 loss last week.
 

Initial account value: $3,600.00 (Account inception: 12/07/2021)

2021 Week 50 investing and trading report


December is almost over. The entire year 2021 is almost over. Despite extreme volatility, FED, inflation, fear, I must say, 2021 was an exceptional year for me. This is almost the last investing and trading report this year. I was reporting my progress diligently every week to show how I was doing. And the results exceeded expectations.

Our Net-Liq decreased form last week jump because of the market selloff up by +13.24%), our options income increased in December by +6.24% and our dividend income is in line with our monthly goal.

What are my expectations for the rest of the year? I still think this market will reach $4,800 by the end of the year although my conviction is lesser than before. FED announcing tapering and possible interest rates hike next year can spark a repetition of Christmas 2018 selling. Although, if that was the case, we would be already down significantly and not a measly 2%.
 

Here is our investing and trading report:

Dividend Investing and Trading Report

 
Last week we have received $40.50 in dividends bringing December’s dividend income to $136.23. We bought 10 shares of RYLD ETF for dividend income. I will be accumulating this ETF more often now as I wish to create a dividend income from this fund to cover my mortgage payments. So, I will be accumulating and reinvesting dividends. Once my dividend income exceeds the mortgage payments, I plan on withdrawing the dividend. Then I shift back to accumulating other stocks.

Here you can see our dividend income per stock holding:

Growth stocks Investing and Trading Report

 

Last week we continued accumulating our position in the HFEA strategy. We kept buying SPXL and TMF shares to reach our target allocation. We are only a few shares short of the target and I think we will finish accumulating the shares next week. Other than that, we didn’t buy any other growth stocks positions.

 

Options Investing and Trading Report

 
The stock market recovered the previous selloff after FED announced its tapering and interest rates hike. The announcement was taken as a relief and the market rallied. Nasdaq went up almost 3% that day. We had to adjust a few strangle positions to the upside.

Then, the market turned lower as investors (possibly the same investors who pushed Nasdaq to 3% gain) started selling the same stocks, and the rest of the week we had a significant selloff. We had to adjust those same strangles back down.

These adjustments delivered $2,265.00 of additional options income bringing December at $6,169.00.
 

You can watch all our trades in this spreadsheet. You can watch the spreadsheet and look for a “NEW” indication next to the trading date. When the indicator shows up, it is typically good for up to 3 days to follow that trade.
 

Expected Future Dividend Income

 
We have received $13.21 in dividends last week. Our portfolio currently yields 4.41% at $98,835.00 market value.

 
Our projected annual dividend income in 10 years is $22,577.31 but that projection is if we do absolutely nothing and let our positions grow on their own without adding new positions or reinvesting the dividends.

We are also set to receive a $4,432.93 annual dividend income. We are 19.63% of our 10 year goal of $22,577.31 dividend income.

The chart above shows how our future dividend income is based on the future yield on cost and what dividend income we may expect in the future. The expected dividend growth depends on what stocks we are adding to our portfolio and the stocks’ 3 years average dividend growth rate. It is interesting to see what passive income we may enjoy 10, 20, 25, or 30 years from now.

 

Market value of our holdings

 
Our non-adjusted stock holdings market value decreased from $129,791.56 to $129,178.85 last week. On month to month our stock holding value increased from $121,107.63 to $129,178.85 value.

Our goal is to accumulate 100 shares of each stock of our interest and we are getting to that goal.
 

Investing and trading ROI

 

Our options trading delivered a 6.24% monthly ROI in November 2021, totaling a 60.23% ROI YTD. We again exceeded our 45% annual revenue selling options against dividend stocks target!

Our account grew by 380.43% beating our projections and the market.
 

Our options trading averaged $4,960.67 per month this year. If this trend continues, we are on track to make $59,528.00 trading options in 2021. As of today, we have made $59,528.00 trading options.
 

Old SPX trades repair

 

This week, we didn’t adjust our old SPX trades. Our goal is to reach a level where we will be eligible for portfolio margin (PM). Once that happens, we plan on converting the existing SPX Iron Condors to strangles and trade these positions as strangles.

With RegT margin, the capital requirements would be approx. $66,586.06 and that is beyond our means. With PM the requirement for margin would drop to around $10k. That is doable in our account. Once we reach this level, we will start adjusting our SPX trades accordingly. Until then, we will just roll these trades around.

 

Market Outlook

 

We are still bullish and we think that this market will rally and reaches $4,800 by the year-end. Although, this may be derailed by Wall Street still panicking over the FED’s tapering and interest hike. We have to wait to see and trade cautiously.

Account Stocks holding

 
TW Account holdings week 50
 

Last week, S&P 500 grew 59.73% since we opened our portfolio while our portfolio grew 25.97%. On YTD basis, the S&P 500 grew 29.89% and our portfolio 18.99%.

The numbers above apply to our stock holdings only. Our overall account net-liq grew by 380.43% this year! This is thanks to options trading that generates income. It can be also seen how the options help lower our cost basis. Just compare the P&L in the regular (left) column with the P&L in the “Options adjusted” column. For example, our AES holding would be a loser as of today (down -8.11%), but we generated enough income (we can call it also a return of our invested capital) and that position is 131.27% up.
 

Stock holdings Growth YTD

 
TW Account holdings Growth YTD
 

I expect our stock holdings to start outperforming the market hopefully soon. The entire portfolio beats the market by far thanks to monetizing those positions.

Our 10-year goal is to grow this account to $1,000,000.00 value in ten years. We are in year two and we accomplished 9.88% of that goal.

Our 6-year goal is to reach $175,000 account value to be eligible for portfolio margin (PM) and today we accomplished 56.48% of that goal.

Our 2021 year goal is to grow this account to a $42,344.00. We already accomplished this goal.

TW Received vs Projected Dividends week 50
 

We have accomplished our dividend income goal. We planned to make $1,071 of dividend income this year and we finished receiving $2,721.56. However, we accumulated enough shares to start making $4,432.93 a year.

Also, it is amazing to see, that on monthly basis, we received $53 in dividends and grew our account and now we are receiving $400 in dividends.

As of today, our account cumulative return is 47.78% (note, data in this section are since March 13, 2021, only as that is the date we started tracking these metrics. Thus the results are skewed a bit and will show full picture next year.).

We will report our next week’s results next Saturday. Until then, good luck and good trading!
