Starting a new trading journal. I have previously shied away from posting a live trading journal under the presumption that it would introduce my ego into the risk / reward equation, and while that presents a monetary risk, it doesn't come with a monetary reward. Though, as I reviewed the trades I have made live calls on, I've noticed they're much better from a technical standpoint; specifically, I do a much better job of getting out of bad trades. So, apparently, there may be a monetary reward side to this. So lets experiment and see how this one goes.
Currently, open positions are:
AAPL - Jun 16 long $155 call
BIDU - May 19 call debit spread 182.50 - 187.50
CAT - May 12 put credit spread 98 - 100
FDX - May 12 put credit spread 187.50 - 190.00
MO - May 12 put credit spread 69.00 - 71.50
QCOM - May 12 call credit spread 53 - 55
Going forward, I'll show open / close transactions--I'll give the damage reports on the above as their closed.
Stopped out of MO at 1.40 for a 0.16 loss.
That is something I didn't think I'd ever say.
