following the stock market activities of Tom Denham

19 September 2014

My loss from trading September options and shares was -1.32 percent of August portfolio value. I closed more share and direct option buy positions at a loss than I made from activities during the month. This caused a swing from August’s 4.95 percent for the year to a current 2.91 percent for the year.

15 August 2014

My gains from trading in August were 1.71 percent of July portfolio value. I am increasingly making profits from direct trading of shares and holding some outright call or put positions. I am not posting share trades and long option trades because it is more trouble to manage the details in summary fashion.
