Weekend Portfolio Analysis (December 30, 2018)

Recent Trading Activity

- Closed all bullish bets that had been deployed since February. All of them at a loss. At one point there were more than ten thousand dollars in gains there. Definitely frustrating. Many mistakes were made this year, putting personal issues aside, I will go over them one by one in an upcoming article. Final record for the year here.

Reminder: As explained in the October 13 article, I will stop writing Weekend Portfolio Analyses at the end of 2018. I will keep trading and keeping a track record of the positions as usual.

So, far, I have opened two 2019 positions:
- Jan 2019 SPX Credit Put spread
- Feb 2019 RUT Credit Put spread

February 2019 RUT Credit Put spread

With the VIX above 23, RUT down 20% from its peak and all the oscillators pointing to an oversold environment, I'm going with a Credit Put spread using February options.
Trade Details:
SELL 4 February RUT 1180/1170 Credit Put spreads @0.70

Credit:          $280 (0.70 x 4 x 100)
Max Risk: $3,720 (9.30 x 4 x 100)
