Enhanced Investing results halfway through the year

In 2018 I started to more regularly:

- Sell Puts on companies I'd like to own at better valuations, not intending to adjust or anything. If a Put becomes In the Money at expiration, I'm happy getting assigned the shares. If such fall doesn't take place, I'm happy locking the credit received from the Put contract and re-deploying.

- Sell Out of the Money Calls on stocks I own. This reduces maximum upside potential, but generates income every month during sideways, down and even limited upside market action.

- Collect dividends on the companies owned.

LT Trend Sniper - performance update

At almost the half year mark is as good a time as any to see how the Sniper has been doing in 2018. This is the robot I developed more than five years ago to trade the Forex markets, in particular, the EUR/USD pair and XAU/USD (spot gold vs US dollar).
