$100,000 Virtual Portfolio – Conservative – 25% Annual Returns

I've had a few new members ask me about deploying a new virtual portfolio.

I thought it would be a good idea to do a little practice run using the WSS platform with ORDINARY margins so these will be trades anyone can make.  My intention with this virtual portfolio is not to touch it very often and I WILL NOT be able to watch it all day.  So, this will be an ideal virtual portfolio for the "set and forget" crowd.  Obviously, you can do this with $50,000 or even $25,000 – just buy less positions!

Our goal is conservatism and earning a least 2% a month.  We did this with last spring's Q2 $100K Virtual Portfolio, which was doing better than $1,000 PER WEEK until we closed it in week 18.  If those two things don't seem to go hand in hand – I hope to get you to think again as we use many of the techniques we learn ever day at PSW to take advantage of different market movements.  I haven't tried the new option system at WSS yet so we'll see how it goes and how much of a pain in the ass it is but, basically – if you are the kind of trader who is busy during the day and has little time to deal with a virtual portfolio – then we're in the same boat on this one!

If you are brand new to our site I seriously request that you don't "experiment" by following this live.  You can paper trade too until you get the feel for managing these positions.  For new Members, we have a "New Member’s Guide" which pretty much lays things out with these standard assignments:

  • If you are new to options, read Sage’s Book
  • Read 1 full month of my posts and all comments, you will get a good feel for the site, the kind of trades we do and also get to know a bit about the people in chat.  Knowing people’s various expertises and understanding their market philosophy and position makes the next live comment they make much more informative…
  • Read Option Sage’s articles under his tab, many were co-authored by me that highlight various option strategies with real-world examples.
  • Watch The Man Who Planted Trees,

September Promotion – Cash for Clickers!

Never let is be said we are above jumping on the bandwagon to promote the site.

This month, we are going to test the old adage that "you can't put a price on friendship."   We say you can and we say that price is $74.70!  That is how much money you will save annually off a monthly premium subscription for each friend you refer under our September Refer-A-Friend program

After the debacle of the July contest, where we offered $1,500 CASH for referrals and we had the lowest response yet to a promotional, we went back to spending our money on Google ads and, I'm sorry to say, Google kicked your butts!  2,300 PSW Report subscribers signed up in August vs. just 1,300 referred in the July contest.  Nonetheless, our overall marketing campaign is on track and we have already crossed the 9,000 subscriber mark on the reports, way ahead towards our goal of 10,000 by the year's end. 

By the way, a lot of Report Members want to know if they can keep getting the PSW Report for free and the answer is YES – by referring a single friend each quarter, you are able to extend your own free trial subscription.  What about my $74.70 discount per friend you may wonder?   That is just as simple:  Refer 10 friends friends in Septermber to a FREE newsletter trial subscription (they must, of course, "opt in"), and you will get a PERMANENT 25% discount on ANY PSW MEMBERSHIP.  On a monthly premium membership, that is and $896 savings per year ($89.60 per friend).  This is in addition to any other earned discounts UNLESS you already got your 20% bonus discount the last time we did this. 

Click here to refer a friend right now!

If you refer under 10 people, you will still get a 20% bonus discount through the end of the year but, after that, you'll have to qualify again in our January promotion but no effort made will ever be wasted as 10 referrals over time will always lock in your discount.  Even just 20% on a $399 annual Alert subscription is $79.80 – that is the price of friendship! 

Surely you know 1 person who would be willing to check out our free trial Newsletter so they can help you save $74.70 on your subscription?  If you know 10 such…

Dow Jones cycle update and are we there yet?

Courtesy of Read the Ticker

Today the Dow and the SP500 are making new all time highs. However all long and strong bull markets end on a new all time high. Today no one knows how many new all time highs are to go, maybe 1 or 100+ more to go, who knows! So are we there yet?

readtheticker.com combine market tools from Richard Wyckoff, Jim Hurst and William Gann to understand and forecast price action. In concept terms (in order), demand and supply, market cycles, and time to price analysis. 

Cycle are excellent to understand the wider picture, after all markets do not move in a straight line and bear markets do follow bull markets.

Is Bitcoin a Macro Asset?

 

Is Bitcoin a Macro Asset?

Courtesy of 

As part of Coindesk’s popup podcast series centered around today’s Invest conference, I answered a few questions for Nolan Bauerly about Bitcoin from a wealth management perspective. I decided in December of 2017 that investing directly into crypto currencies was unnecessary and not a good use of a portfolio’s allocation slots. I remain in this posture today but I am openminded about how this may change in the future.

Silver Testing This Support For The First Time In 8-Years!

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

Its been a good while since Silver bulls could say that it is testing support. Well, this week that can be said! Will this support test hold? Silver Bulls sure hope so!

This chart looks at Silver Futures over the past 10-years. Silver has spent the majority of the past 8-years inside of the pink shaded falling channel, as it has created lower highs and lower lows.

Silver broke above the top of this falling channel around 90-days ago at (1). It quickly rallied over 15%, before creating a large bearish reversal pattern, around 5-weeks after the bre...

Lee's Free Thinking

Today's Fed POMO TOMO FOMC Alphabet Soup Unspin

Courtesy of Lee Adler

But make no mistake, if the Fed wants money rates to stay down by another quarter, it will need to imagineer even more money.

That’s on top of the $281 billion it has already imagineered into existence since addressing its “one-off” repo market emergency on September 17. This came via  “Temporary” Repo Man Operations money, and $70.6 billion in Permanent Open Market Operations (POMO) money.

By my calculations that averages out to $7.4 billion per business day. That works out to a monthly pace of $155 billion or so.

If they keep this up, it will be more than enough to absorb every penny of new Treasury supply. That supply had caused the system to run out of money in mid September.  This flood of paper had been inundati...

Despacito - How to Make Money the Old-Fashioned Way - SLOWLY!

Are you ready to retire?  

For most people, the purpose of investing is to build up enough wealth to allow you to retire.  In general, that's usually enough money to reliably generate a year's worth of your average income, each year into your retirement so that that, plus you Social Security, should be enough to pay your bills without having to draw down on your principle.

Unfortunately, as the last decade has shown us, we can't count on bonds to pay us more than 3% and the average return from the stock market over the past 20 years has been erratic - to say the least - with 4 negative years (2000, 2001, 2002 and 2008) and 14 positives, though mostly in the 10% range on the positives.  A string of losses like we had from 2000-02 could easily wipe out a decades worth of gains.

Still, the stock market has been better over the last 10 (7%) an...
