Karen the Supertrader - TastyTrade Hybrid Experiment

Discussion in 'Journals' started by Sweet Bobby, May 18, 2016.

  1. This is a test of a strategy combining what we know of Karen the Supertrader's strategy combined with some of the research from TastyTrade. Will it be profitable? Time will tell. I started this experiment on April 5, 2016. Here is a link to my spreadsheet where you can follow along.



    Thus far the account is up $2,034 on a $150,000 account. This should be interesting.
     
  2. ...So in about six weeks you made 3% :po_O, or an average of .10%/day
    Easier said than done in the long run, and most people fail... but I would hardly call that a SuperTrader.

    Karen the "supertrader"

    Why not attached the youtube clip where she says she almost blew her account during the flash crash.

    2 things you might not be aware of:

    1. There is a Yahoo group where they have been running this experiment for 2+ years now. No need to reinvent the wheel.
    2. She is using portfolio margin so she can write way more contracts than your retail margin allows you.

    2K on a 150K account is 1.5%....

    Call me pedantic if you want, guys, but when I left high school (only a few years ago), $2k on a $150k account was actually 1.33%.

    Must be this "new math", I suppose ...
