March 2020 SPX Unbalanced Iron Condor

Trade Details:

3 March SPX 2985/2975 Credit Put spread @0.70 credit each
1 March SPX 3450/3460 Credit Call spread @1.20 credit

I went with a 3x1 ratio instead of the usual 4x1. Totally at my discretion. I feel it is not the right time to be overly exposed on the downside.

Net Credit: $330
Max Risk: $2,670
56 days to Exp.

Long term investing in 2019 - Canadian Portfolio

Back to the TFSA Account I have in Canada (American Roth Equivalent).
This is an interesting account to me because, since I'm no longer a Canadian Resident, I can't inject any more fresh cash to this account. So, whatever it grows is from pure stocks appreciation, dividends and of course dividends reinvestments.

2019 was a good year. 
I failed to beat the TSX index for the first time, but the market was nicely up, so I don't really care.

Leveraged ETFs Portfolio - 2019 Results

This is my small account inspired by the Volatility and Leveraged Instruments to Lazily beat the Markets series.

I'm happy to report it is not such a small account anymore. 2019 was a great year for the Leveraged Portfolio. But like they say, an image is worth a thousand words. Here's a snapshot of the Track record page after market close on December 31:

Trend Sniper system performance and a decision

Well, Happy New Year!

It's now time to analyze the numbers for all the investing/trading approaches that I use and today the focus will be spot Forex Automated Trading.

The LT Trend Sniper is the Forex system I implemented back in 2012, which I have been trading with real money since 2013.

In 2019 the performance was, let's say below my expectations, even though things were going relatively well for a good chunk of the year. Below is a trade by trade break-down:
