Yesterday I entered the first July position. Although unfortunately din't have the time to blog about it as things are pretty hectic at the office these days.

Weekend Portfolio Analysis (05-18-2013)

Yesterday was May 2013 expiration and with it, the RUT 1000/1005 Bear Call spread and the SPX 1440/1445 Bull Put spread expired worthless for full profit. May expiration was the best month so far this year with a +5.15% return before commissions.

June $SPX Iron Condor adjustment

Today I closed the June SPX 1430/1435/1660/1665 Iron Condor for 2.35 debit. As the original trade was entered for 0.80 credit, this represents a 1.55 loss ($620 in 4 contracts per leg). This position should have probably been closed two days ago when the 1660 short strike had a 30% probability of being in the money. The loss would have been more manageable.

A new trade was immediately open after that, but using 5 contracts per leg instead to obtain a little bit more credit (in total)

Weekend Portfolio Analysis (05-04-2013)

SPX moved from 1582.34 to a close of 1614.42 on Friday for a solid +2.03% this week. And nobody, nobody can tell me they can predict anything related to where the market is headed. Folks, we've been in this unstoppable uptrend for almost 6 months now! The more I watch this thing, the more convinced I become that predicting short term direction is a futile exercise.
