Christmas Gift!!??!!


Out of the extraordinary, I made USD54 after deducing all fees/options trades on CMCSA(Comcast Corp). This is purely a speculation played on 3rd Dec when I placed a CALL options spread of 57/57.5 with total debit of USD40. At that point of time, the stock was trading at USD57.02. I'm betting that by expiration on 19th Dec, if the stock stay above USD57.50, I'll make a total of 150% return. This trade was done entirely on technical analysis.

Options Trades




With the O & G sector badly beaten, my holding on Seadrill (SDRL) had dropped tremendously. After looking thru, I decided to sell PUT options:-

  • sell-to-open SDRL Dec 14 14.5 PUT @0.93.

When this trade was send, SDRL was trading at ~$14. In order to gain maximum profit with this trade, the stock would have to move up and stay above $14.50. If that happens we will see the maximum profit of $93 (6.42%). As long as the stock stay above $13.57, it will gain partial profit.

 You will be able to see my realised P/L here. Feel free to give your comment.

Monthly Review - November 2014



My 4th post on my monthly review. While updating, I realised that the past values which were updated last month were increased. This is cause by the strengthening of USD:SGD rate. USD$1 will be SGD$1.30 which is good for me, as I'm reporting my portfolio in SGD.
