following the stock market activities of Tom Denham

21 March 2014

My gains from trading March options, shares, futures, and collecting dividends was 1.29 percent of February’s ending portfolio value.

March was quiet compared to the excitement of February. My exposure to the market is about as low as it has been in years.

I have gotten tired of updating trades on a daily basis. I think I will continue to update the site on a monthly basis, but am planning to stop daily updates as of this past Friday.
