My Year So Far - Actively Investing/Trading
We have been navigating the market beautifully this whole year.
34 Green Trades
1 Red Trade
Slowing down and not day trading has made me so much more consistent.
From an Investment Standpoint: I have not added any long exposure. Patience. Opportunities will come and I will happily share my thoughts when they arise.
I write this to encourage all that you can be very successful playing the downside of the market as well.
Wow that is definitely worth celebrating. Might I ask which was the one red anomaly of the group ? For the sake of transparency it would be great to have context on that trade.
@joeyhirendernath Happy to share.
I love selling OTM options, but I never sell an option less than 7 days from expiry. I broke my rule and sold a 0DTE on $SPY.
I was looking to make quick money, and I had to buy it back to close for a loss or I would have gotten exercised in February.
If I would have followed my rules - I never would have taken this. Lesson: Trust my strategy and rules and don't gamble.
All the other trades have been short sells as swing trades.
