This is a nice way to end 2018. Having an all green trading screen. I’ve now recouped almost all of my losses from a brutal December (only down 2%, from being down over 10%)
In other news, our daughter has been home for about 2 months now and life is getting back to normal. Next year we are moving across the US to relocate for my job. 2019 will have a number of challenges including relocating my family and have high work demands as we develop and roll out a new product.
Even with all of that busyness, my trading goals for 2019 are to outperform the S&P 500, to be more active on BP and Twitter, and to roll out a new thread on Babypips to teach an untouched topic, “Options Premium Selling”. 5% of my profit from 2018 came from just selling options on the EUR/USD futures market (symbol is /6E). Selling premium on EURUSD and GBPUSD was very lucrative in 2018, and will likely continue to be in 2019. Options selling is very mechanical, almost no subjectiveness at all, and can produce solid profits when done correctly. I am looking forward to putting it out to the BabyPips group and seeing peoples thoughts.
Have a great New Years Eve everyone!
