Update: Interactive Brokers July Performance

To be honest, 2016 started off to a very rocky start for my portfolio.  Since then, I have not been actively trading options as I had back in 2015.  I fell off the bandwagon and was discourage like any trader who watched their profits they worked so hard disappear within a short amount of time.  

I kept calm and held onto my positions.  Some positions have not recovered and some others have recovered in the past seven months. 

It's only this past month that my portfolio have really made the climb up.  Relatively speaking, I've been flat for the 2016 at 0.91% gain before this month.  

With markets at all time highs, I am doubtful this surge will last for the rest of the year.  I need to re-evaluate my whole portfolio and positions to take some profits off the table before it all disperse again.  

Big changes are going to happen to my life with a little one on the way so I'll be putting trading on the back burner till I get a hold of my routine.

People call me a lot of things from lazy to rude.  It's their prospective.  

Am I really lazy?  Perhaps I emanate laziness with my constant chatter online during working hours.  If I wasn't doing my job, then I'd be in trouble of losing position.  Yet, I'm still employed.  

I can be rude with some of the questions I've asked online, but you know what, I like to get to the bottom of facts.  A lot of people probably have the same questions I have, but are afraid to ask.  I'm just doing them a favour, really!

Don't always assume you're right about certain something.  Truths can be hidden if left unasked.

It's been a while

Hello!  It's been a while since I posted here.  Seems like I still get some visits from time to time on this little old blog I've neglected for a few months.  I've been discouraged since the beginning of 2016 in my ability to trade.  But I'm still alive and kicking.

I haven't been tracking my trades or my dividends since the beginning of year.  I've been adjusting and now I have 38% cash in my IB margin account.  I am not as trigger happy as I used to be.  But I will get back into the game once I see an opportunity.

My YTD results sucks as you can see below (March 3rd results), but all in all, I'm still keeping treading above waters.

November Option/Stock Performance

This continued upward surge is only thanks to two of the 
FANG members that I have open positions.

October Option/Stock Performance

Every month, I try to post a option/stock progress report of my non-registered Interactive Brokers account to keep track of my performance or at least I try to.  
Even though, I took a big loss from $BTE.TO (-$9,287.00) and some bad option plays, I still managed to stay afloat overall.  One of my biggest problems with trading is not knowing when to take a loss until it's too late.  Now, I can say good riddance and move on.

Lately, I've been chatting a lot on Twitter rather than focusing on the bigger picture at hand.  I have become lazy, unfocused just to get a few laughs during the day to pass by time.  

It is time for me to clean up my act and bring my portfolio to the next level.

Set to Expire: Oct 28th

OptionAccounts (Position)
SBUX 30OCT2015 50 P(-2)
SWKS 30OCT2015 70 P  (-1)

My two short PUTs for the week.  Looking to lock in $137.00 by the end of Friday, but $SBUX earnings is tomorrow.  Will it beat or will it head down in a ball of fiery? 

Today, I closed 2 of my short PUTs for $FIT with a strike of $30.00.  Right now, I am very OTM on them, but I do not want to get caught in a earning release surprise for the worst.  I managed to walk away with a small gain of $90 which I am bittersweet about.

That's it for today.  Till next time.
