Just wanted to give you an update over the last couple months because holy crap! After my July success with an AAPL option of about $3000, after the August huge crash deal, I did exactly what one of your newsletters said not to do…I let my husband (who has not learned the system yet) talk me into trying to trade with the huge swings going on in the market to try to profit (not entirely his fault because I was intrigued too and caved in). Yeah, we were then -$800 and I was so mad at myself for not following the system especially with that kind of market and being such an amateur. So I waited for over a month, reviewed my materials again, and just watched and waited until everything was doing what it was supposed to be doing and jumped back in the market on 10-20-15. Made $1798.11 on AAPL options in 6 days, made $908.14 on DIS options in 2 days, lost $1101.85 on TSO options (didn’t set the trailing stop high enough, got kicked out, then it immediately went back up and would have made ~$1500…DOH), made $484.13 on another AAPL option in 2 days and GET THIS…I bought 5 LNKD options yesterday after seeing all the indicators line up. I debated about LNKD for 3 days but calculated acceptable risk for our account, trusted the indicators and in 18 hours made $6475.93 and was taken out by the trailing stop. For a grand total of $8464.46 in 10 days.
Sorry for all the detail but I just had to! I just can’t believe it. I was pretty darn happy about making $2000 for the month much less $8464 total in 10 days! Most certainly more than my best 10 days ever in the office, and all of this done in 20-30 minutes each day in my PJs while my son watched cartoons in the morning. Worst part is, I have been playing with LNKD options in my virtual account and trying out a few different exit strategies on it to see where my comfort levels are and my virtual account is up $21,500 in 7 days!
I’ve discovered I’m very uncomfortable with risk, so I figure I have to be comfortable with what I can do at this point with our real account. There’s no reset button in our real account LOL. I am just amazed. I still don’t feel like it’s real that this actually happened. Right now I just LOVE options 🙂 Also a complete side note, I shared this information with my family in July and only my one sister took me up on the offer to go through the material. Frustratingly, my mom and dad, my other sister have no interest!!!
So my sister works for Northrup Grumman and had a 401K roll over to them when she started working there 5 years ago. So this month we’ve been working together on her account (she’s a MUCH bigger risk taker than I am!) and she moved some things around and she wanted to buy a bunch of NOC. So we analyzed NOC together and she has made ~$14,000 in just a couple weeks! She is now urging my parents to do all this too, so I’m hoping they will. Again, sorry for the long email but it’s all just so exciting and no one knows what I’m talking about when I talk about the market and options. Thanks so much for these courses!!!
