Aug 16th Trading Log (Premarket):

Since my portfolio fell below the stop loss, I’ll be looking for opportunities to sell. TLT rose much further than I expected and HAL fell much more than I expected. It hasn’t been a good trading market, for me, over the past two or three months, after basically making steady gains for several months. Nonetheless, there will be better opportunities later. The HAL Jan calls are promising and the 10 year bond yield may fall further to 1.35% to 1.45% before bottoming this year. The low was 1.51% yesterday.

My portfolio is at $440,000 including $105,600 in cash.

Calls Contracts-Shares Long

CSCO Aug 47 2019 10
GE Jan 10 2020 600
HAL Sep 20 2019 1,000
HAL Jan 20 2020 600
HAL Jan 25 2020 2,000

Puts Contracts-Shares Short

TLT Aug 147 2019 100
TLT Sep 142 2019 400
TLT Sep 145 2019 400

Portfolio at $100,000 on March 1st, 2018. Portfolio stop loss lowered to $500,000. Scaled up and adjusted portfolio. Both prior portfolios, since the early 2000s, rose initially and substantially, and then failed quickly in “irrational” market “melt-ups.”
