The happy month of May was actually a terrific month for our real money account because we reached a new all-time high. We did not make many trades at all but lived from existing trades and from continually renewed continuation trades with options on the VXX.

May performance is all-time high

We started May with an account balance of $121,300.40 and stood at $137,535.68 on May 29, 2020, which corresponds to a percentage profit of 13.38%. As a result, we were able to post double-digit percentage growth for the second month in a row.

All remaining positions are currently in positive territory and there is not much to manage. We will probably close the trade in oats (ZO) soon.
