What's up NavigationTraders?!
I want to take a few minutes to go over our closed trades for the month of January. We closed 12 trades, 11 of which were winners with a total profit of $1,670.75.
You can go to https://navigationtrading.com/performance anytime to see our updated statistics. At the top of the page, we have a section labeled, “2018 Trade Statistics” which lists our closed trades for the year, our average profit, and our updated winning percentage.
Since we’re only a month into 2018, you'll see we’ve had 12 closed trades, an average profit $139, and a winning percentage a little over 91%.
If you keep scrolling down, you'll see all of the statistics from 2017. We had 75 closed trades, $140 average profit, and an 88% win rate. You’ll also be able to see the trades we made each month throughout the year of 2017.
We did start posting in June 2017, so that’s as far back as our trade stats go.
In-Depth Look at January Performance
Let’s look at some more detail from our January performance.
On January 4th, we did a Short Put Vertical in Microsoft. We booked a profit of $198.
In Starbucks, we did a Short Put Vertical as well. We were adding some bullish positions to our portfolio and ended up doing well. We made a $136 profit.
We did a Short Strangle in the 10-year note (/ZN) and booked a profit of $218.75.
We did a Butterfly Spread in XLU and booked a nice profit.
In Alibaba, we did a Pre-Earnings Long Strangle, and we ended up booking a nice profit of $244.
In Costco, we did a Post-Earnings Short Put Vertical, a key strategy that we teach in our earnings course. We booked a profit of $124.
In TLT, we did a Long Put Vertical booking a profit of $174.
The one loser we had this month, was a Calendar Spread that we did in SPX. With the market super strong in the month of January, there were just no pull backs…just a pure one-directional move, so we did take a loss in our SPX trade. But that's trading for you! You're not going to win them all.
We did a Post-Earning Short Put Vertical in Netflix and ended up with a $321 profit.
In Caterpillar, we did an Earnings Short Strangle and booked a winner overnight.
In Tesla, we did a Pre-Earning Long Call, booking a profit of $340.
And finally, in Facebook, we did a Pre-Earnings Long Call for a profit of $120.
