Returns as of Jan 2015

Returns as of Jan 2015

This report includes a Monthly Statement, Income and Portfolio Value Returns for the year, and Annual Returns since 2010.

I starting trading again this month after 4 months off due to work. I added to some existing positions by selling puts below my original cost basis, of which 2 were assigned and combined into the existing position. I also sold puts on several other companies which all expired. Overall, not a bad start to the year.

I decided to change the Account Value section to match the Interactive Brokers statement to make it easier to maintain.
