Well, I didn’t really expect that I was taking a step back for over 3 years! At this point I can’t recall why I stepped away for so long.

This post is going to be really quick. I am still alive and I am still trading.

If I thought that my losses on HTZ or LUV were big, boy was I going to be surprised just how much more I would eventually lose! I never did share the outcome of my BYND LEAPS. Long story short: I have lost almost all the money. Wouldacouldashoulda: I could have traded it at many points for a very nice profit, but I held on to it too long in a foolish / greedy attempt to hold on to all of the premium.

I have made even worse trades than the BYND trade. I won’t go into all of the details. I have a very large unrealized loss right now, but will be slowly realizing those losses over the next few months or so. Once I realize those losses, they will eat up all of the profit I have made and will then give back even more. I plan to share in a future post (after the new year and tax filing) my net gains and net losses for each year I have been trading.

Trading is much harder than I thought it would be. I still have a LOT to learn. I haven’t given up, yet. But, the jury is still out whether I will continue to do this for the long run.

I give thanks to the Universe for the abundance it provides me. I surrender and am open and ready to receive.
