Week Four Summary – IRA Goal – 12/23/18 – 12/29/18

Last week I setup these 3 objectives for the week: 1.) Understand the entry criteria for an iron butterfly. 2.) Finish education track #3 3.) Find a better way to chart P&L For number one I used a combination of Kurt’s videos and Tasty Trade’s videos. It’s not the strategy itself that’s the problem for me, it’s putting some scope on what makes it a well priced trade vs a turd. It’s pretty easy with condors and verticals, you’re basically looking

Last week I setup these 3 objectives for the week: 1.) Understand the entry criteria for an iron butterfly. 2.) Finish education track #3 3.) Build something in XL for basic position tracking.

I became and “Elite” member at optionalpha.com this week.  With that comes real time access

Week One Summary – IRA Goal – 12/3/18 – 12/8/18

IRA Goal: Until Jan 2nd, this goal is in cleanup and education mode. I’m still putting together my master checklist that I’m going to need in order to start and manage positions. It’s based almost entirely off of the educational series at OptionAlpha.com. It will obviously be influenced, as OptionAlpha itself is, by TastyTrade.com. Both of these sites are creating a paradigm shift in the retail investing industry. I fell in love with TastyTrade a couple of years ago and
