09/24/15’s Buys and Sells Alert at 08:45PST

Darn. This morning I sold a 13 strike CSP on Ford (F). Immediately realized that I’d read the next Ex Div date wrong, so bought the shares outright for 13.38 with the intention to unwind the CSP (or not, as this is a cheap stock). See transactions below. Errors happen…

09/25/15’s Buys and Sells Alert at 08:37PST

Echoes of earlier TtP-S. Sold on a GTC (at 3:00AM local time). No idea how or why this happened, but a good one. Could use 100’s of trades like this. Only negatives are:

1. Won’t be holding for the Ex Div date coming up

2. Commission costs were 6% of position profit. Quite high…the norm is closer to 1 to 2% as a percent of profit. OTOH, Annualized RoI is insanely high in the 4 digits %.

See below for the oddity

TtP-S Alert 2015/09/22 at 07:44 Last Week’s Transactions

Here’s a table of all transactions from Sep 14 – Sep 18. Hope you had a better week than mine! J Don’t have that many negative cash flow weeks…-$250. This comes from NOT rolling as a unit. I.E., Buying back and waiting to resell at a better point. Sometimes, often in this market, the better point doesn’t come in reasonable time so the buy back gets booked before the corresponding re-sell does…in different weeks. Also missed opportunities trying to squeeze out extra pennies on CC sells. It IS a journey, and I’ve been walking a rocky part of that trail.

09/18/15’s Buys and Sells Alert at 09:02PST

I just bought back a MET CSP the other day, and here it is again. Why? Lower price stock, in a sector that is the lowest representation in my portfolio, and has decent option prices. It is also near historical lows.

Today is expiration day, so I have many actions going. Will post all trades after the close.

09/14/15’s Buys and Sells Alert at 13:04PST

I’ve been asked to do a better job of reporting activity with the new options (CSP and CC) activity. I’ll try to do that several times per week if not daily. I’ll paste the transactions in at the bottom of this display. There were no buys today.

I’ve reported the transactions in two different formats. The 1st is from IB. The second is my tracker. If you have a preference, let me know, or I’ll probably do the one from my tracker only.
