October has begun, and it’s time to take a look at the performance of our real money account in September.

August performance

As you can read in this article, August ran with a performance of 2.39% in our favor and allowed us to completely reach the target of 30% p.a.. Although the previous July was terrific at 17%, 2.39% is still more than sufficient if we can achieve this on a long-term average.

Explosive performance in September

The results of September exceeded even the excellent performance of July. Again, we achieved 17.43%. As a result, we had to adjust our trading goals several times. The last announced target of 50% was also reached on Friday. Thus, our $100,000 real money account at the end of September is $132,606.48.

We closed the following trades in September:

  • Butterfly in the Russell 2000 (RUT) with a profit of $635.20
  • Short puts in Lean Hogs (HE) with a profit of $793.20
  • International Flavors & Fragrances (IFF) with a profit of $148.17
  • Butterfly in the Russell 2000 (RUT) with a profit of $1,915.20
  • Butterfly in the Russell 2000 (RUT) with a profit of $3,332.00
  • Butterfly in the Russell 2000 (RUT) with a profit of $1,540.60

So, let’s say we’re talking about realized profits, that’s $8,364.37.

Current positions in our $100,000 real money account

This is the current state of affairs:

3 aspects that are worth mentioning:

  • Short call in oil (CL) is currently our problem child. Oil is currently on strike, and we have also reached an almost 1% loss in account size. We will most likely roll or even close this position.
  • Short put in wheat (ZW) looks bad but is a completely risk-free position because it is covered by our short position in wheat.
  • Oil spread (CL and BZ) is not ideal and is currently losing 1% of our account size. Nevertheless, we consider buying here.
