September 2022 $100 Challenge account review

The stock market is still in crash mode. For the entire of September, the market lost significantly, and our strategy was losing too. But I am not concerned. We are sitting tight and investing in stocks that will deliver nice dividends while waiting for recovery. This strategy is designed for a small account and today’s market is not suitable for small accounts, so we have to wait it out and wait for a better time to resume trading options. But as soon as the market improves, we will also resume trading. Until then, we are in accumulation mode only. Sometimes, it is a lot better strategy to just wait.

Accumulation phase

The account is underperforming our goal. We are investing in stocks of our interest and building equity positions first. After we build our equity, we will be wheeling the positions. If you are not patient and want to trade right now with a small account, you can get burned significantly. The margin requirements can shift sharply and hurt your account. Trust me. I struggle with it in my main account when the maintenance requirements change sharply overnight, and I am in trouble. But my main account is big enough to navigate this and stay afloat. Our Challenge account doesn’t have that power.

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.
