Options Expiration Report for Dec 2013

I decided to take this month off to enjoy the holidays with family and friends. Some things are more important than money.

This month marks the end of ficsal year 2013 for this portfolio. Overall, the performance was slightly below my goal, partly because I took a few months off during the year, and also because there were less qualified candidates. As usual, I'll be doing my annual review and plan on making some changes to my trading plan and reporting methodology for 2014. I'll post the changes in the coming weeks.

Happy Holidays to everyone and I hope the New Year is both happy and prosperous for all.

I had 6 positions for Dec expiration:

  • 6 uncovered stock positions (BHP, CMP, GDX, SIL(2), and WTW) - 1 closed (CMP).
  • 0 CC positions.
  • 0 CSP positions.

I'm currently 7% invested and 93% in cash, with 5 open positions:

  • 5 uncovered stock positions (BHP, GDX, SIL(2), and WTW).
  • 0 CC positions.
  • 0 CSP positions.

Performance Summary

The primary objective is to generate $10,000-$20,000 of income per year, which is 5-10% of the paid-in capital of $200,000. The secondary objective is to increase the account value by the amount of income generated each year.
