I have had my second best year trading ever. It should have easily been my best but I can’t seem to follow my own trading advice. I have a simple rule. Set stops to have a limit of losses and to let winners run. When things are looking good I either take my original investment out and let the rest go, or I set a stop to insure I don’t lose any money. That’s what I did yesterday for FUV. The problem is I set it too high. I wanted to insure a good profit instead of using it as protection. Of course it got hit and closed my trade. Then the stock ran and ran and ran. Giving me a nice $10K profit. Anyone would be happy with a 3 times return in 2 days but if my stop wouldn’t have been hit I would have closed the day with $35K profit. Or if I would have sold half my investment I still would have had a $25K profit. I know the saying. “You never go broke taking a profit” but in options you have to let the winners run to their full potential in order to pay for all the bad trades. Very similar to domains. If you don’t get a great price you won’t make an overall profit.
My best year trading options I took $2K and ended the year with $125K. It was at $250K and I put it into one trade that year. I figured if the trade went well I would make a million dollars, if it didn’t I would lose half. I lost half. My wife and I remember the day vividly. A $125K lost in an hour. But I got there with risk and I still ended up with a 60X my money. This year I haven’t done that well but I started with $7k and I believe I’m up approximately 10X. “Why don’t you start with $100K and do that every year?” I don’t have the stomach for $70K options trades. I don’t mind losing 5K on a trade but I’m not confident enough to add a zero.
And yes. I have put some of the profit in Crypto. After I paid the taxes on the gains I bought some Ether and a bitcoin. Add in the 123.io bitcoin and I now have a little exposure in Bitcoin. I was in real big a few months ago but I needed the money to buy domains so I sold most of it and bought a few LLL.com . I just bought another but was fortunate enough to be able to leave it and let it run. Because it would have been my luck I took it out the day before Eth started running.
