A great year for trading. I have 3 accounts I use, not gonna report on 401Ks as I have little control over them. Roth1: Holding a profitable Leap. 4 small size profitable option trades. Loss SPXL. 2 stock gains. +38%. Roth 2: Little action. Sold profitable VSI. In out TSLA profit. Loss FAZ. Holding 4 +/-. +17% IRA: Most active, in and out action. Held XIV massive loss for good gain. 5 losing trades in 2 stocks. 3 gains stocks. +110% for the year, 25% above acct high. Overall YTD +39%. Discussion: Still too much trading with emotion, much longer holding periods. Perhaps some better skill with options (no losses but only small size). I am off highs, preserved capital. I could get back into trading on margin but still think I would screw it up. I'll continue to invest in rentals instead of intraday trading.
