The following is my trading records for the past 4 years: 2008 -93%(-630,000) 2009 +215%(226,000) 2010 +95%(367,000) 2011 closed the book on 6/28/11, +23%(186,000) My approach is simple. Build a portfolio of 100 to 60 different companies or ETFS by selling puts. I use IB portfolio margin. I liquidated the account on Tuesday, the day before the Greece vote, because of the fear factor. I want to try less risky strategy, like spreads. But I am wondering what kind of returns I can expect. Please share your thoughts. Thanks.
