Buy 600 AMZA at $7.61. At the current purchase price and assuming the continued monthly dividend of $0.11/share, that is a 17.4% yield [subject to taxes, see next article]. I like the monthly payout of $66.00/share on the position. It fits nicely with my strategy for this position.

An added bonus is the ability to use Options. To be fair, the market currently is really shallow and illiquid. I’m hoping that will change. Currently I have 2 orders in, but I’m not overly optimistic of getting a fill.

This is for a longer term position.

I’m back for the close, after some poor trading this morning. The market is in an obvious downtrend, but, it might be possible to catch a counter-trend towards the close [about now], so I’m long AAPL.

*Turned into another loss.

Scalping usually needs a large capital base. However, there are a huge number of providers now of scalping options that have a guaranteed payout of circa 80%

So you can hold a position from 30 seconds to months and have a binary outcome: either a 100% loss, or an 80% gain on a higher/lower bet.

I find that the 5 minute time frame to be best. I now have a winning streak of 8 trades, 1 trade a day, at a 62% return on capital.

Currently I’m only trading very small amounts, but I’ve taken $50 to $200 in the last 8 trading days, which is a 19% compounded return. I spend about 30 minutes a day doing this, obviously your entry is critical. But it’s fun, even with small dollar amounts your adrenaline gets flowing!

Well, the market is not trading where I want it to trade currently. It may yet reverse and trade towards $206, but I’m not holding my breath on that one.


The market seems to have stabilised for the moment…and could bounce higher from here. $206, although unlikely, would be great.


Well the market bounced, but still a looooooong way from where I want it.


I only managed to get one trade placed. It was in the SPY. Ideally, to get paid, I need the SPY to trade back towards $206.50 So it needs to reverse and bounce back higher tomorrow. We’ll see.


I have two trades to place at the market close in anticipation of the w/e. The first will be in PCLN and the second in the QQQ’s. Until then I have nothing much to do apart from keep an eye on things in preparation for placing the trades.

So, the Ducati 1198. Never actually ridden one. Physically they are quite a bit bigger than the 916/996/998 bikes, but they are supposed to handle like a Ducati, so, should be fine.
