Sold SPY 265 APR 06 Put

Sold 1 SPY 265 APR 06 Put for $3.10 today in my Retirement Account. This is my Strategy. I will sell S&P 500 Put Options once a week or once a month and collect the profit from the Time Decay. Of course I am not making money every week or month, but in the long run this will work. Easiest[…]

Day 16: Plus 7.3%

I’ve been quite busy today, so I had only 2 Trades. I “knew” Oil would pull back a little, so I left the trade open without a Stop and I was in deep red for a while. Very risky and dumb!!! Trading Results since February 16. 2018:

Day 15: Plus 3.17%

I’ve managed to make €158 today which is 3.17% of the Account. But I admit that I was not really trading concentrated as I was busy with other things. If I would trade like this always I would blow my Account again. I will do some testing on Friday and show my Wife how I trade and let her trade[…]

Day 14: Plus 12.5%

I’ve had quite a few more trades than the Days before today and there is still plenty of time until the Markets close. But I’m getting very tired now so I better don’t risk to lose any of today’s Gains. Made 12.5% today, which is 554 Euros. I know, I know this is just Paper Trading, but it is almost[…]

Just had Lunch

I thought to myself, yummy I go to the Skyline Plaza and have Lunch there. I love the Asian Lunch Plates for €6,50 you can get in the Food Court. But then I remembered that there is barely any vegetarian and almost no vegan stuff, so I’ve decided to cook lunch myself. Ingredients: Onions Sweet Green Peppers Chickpeas Carrots Cucumbers[…]

Day 13: Plus 8.46%

So, this is Day 13 of my Paper Trading Journal and my Account is up more than 100%. Why is Demo Trading so much easier? I still have to build confidence and Paper Trade for a while longer. I used to always check what other Traders say or do. This is a very bad habit and no Trader should do[…]

Day 11: Plus 3.37%

Made €128 today which is 3.37% of the Account. Was trading for only 2 hours today and want to start the Weekend now. I think I should invest more time in trading. Living in Europe and trading US Markets sucks a little bit. Still trying to figure out from when till when I should trade. Maybe 3pm till 9pm. Trading[…]

Day 9: Plus 4.65%

Phew, was trading ES and CL Futures and Dax CFDs today. Trading CL Futures during European and US Session is quite different. The volatility is nothing for the faint hearted. I’ve also tried one ES Trade which was also quite volatil. Unfortunately I’ve lost some of my gains with my last trade, but fortunately ended my day with a 4.65%[…]

Day 8: Plus 5.08%

I traded EUR/USD, CL and DAX today. I don’t really like Forex, but I thought I will not have Market Data for Futures for a while, so I thought I try to trade Eur/Usd for a while. I also don’t like to trade CFDs. If trading DAX or DOW I recommend to trade Futures, but not CFDS. Anyway I’ve tried[…]

Day 7: Plus 4.10%

Made 130.10 Euros today which is 4.10% of the Account. But I’m not happy with my trading today. At first I went Short DAX, which was wrong. I flipped and went long after it bounced from 11800, but way too late. Then I was expecting a further advance and waited the whole day. I decided to close my Position when[…]

Day 6: Plus 2.65 percent

Made 82.00 Euros today which is 2.65 percent of the Account. Unfortunately I’m having some Problems with my Market Data and I don’t get Data for Futures. My Paper Trading Account is getting the Data from my real Account. But it seems there must be $2000 in the real Account to subscribe to any Market Data. I thought it’s only[…]
