I'm going to use this journal thread to document my (weekly) performance figure from my personal account which is an IRA that I opened in the mid-90s (now an mIRA). I've never taken a withdrawal from this account and the account has seen 18 years of organic growth with 4 negative years. I've done 5 transfers over the years and landed at IB yet again. I am not going to discuss compounded returns to date as my detractors won't believe it, or they'll claim they've done better. I'll likely post during the day when positions are traded, but I doubt that I'll have the time to post fills in real-time, but I'll attempt to post the calls as close to RT as possible. Regardless, the vast majority of trades will be in volatility, not D1 in futures or single name. I'll post my PortfolioAnalyst %return each week, without fail, on Saturday morning. Attached is last week's performance. I had a good end to the week, but have a arbitrage running and the MTM doesn't reflect rates. IOW, IB's MTM could use some improvement. +3.98% return. Strong start to the year, but the marks on the arb hurt performance.
