16 May 2014

My profit from trading May options was -0.49 percent of my ending April portfolio value. The problem was not from option trading, but from losing with 5 of 6 day trades during the period. Absent the losses from day trading, May would have been a good month.

Honestly, I am not such a bad day trader, but I was hedging option positions near the end of the month when I should have remained un-hedged.

I remain bored with posting trades, so am posting only monthly summaries at this time.
