And no, I am not buying you lunch for thinking.

Breaking News!!

No, I’m not pregnant. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Been waiting awhile for a chance to do this. This big runup has presented the perfect opportunity. Been an interesting 13 months but I’ve managed to stay 100 percent in the market the entire time. With this rally and all accounts sitting at lifetime highs I’m closing all non SPY positions and from this point forward will only be trading SPY. Looking at my history during the last couple years I’ve managed to do pretty good with it in all kinds of markets. Can’t beat the liquidity and expirations available. A little bit of a divvy kicker to boot and ZERO single stock risk.

It was a mixed bag over the last year but more and bigger winners than losers so can’t complain. Here’s a summary of every ticker for the last 13 months.

(Very) Big Winners:

SPY
XBI

Big Losers:

ARKK
NFLX
SOXL
TQQQ

Medium Winners:

ADBE
AMZN
EWZ
MSFT
SVXY
TBT
TLT
TSLA

Medium Losers

NVDA

Small winners:

COST
QYLD
ROKU
SNOW
SPX
SPXL
TNA

Small losers

/ES
ISRG
LABU
RSX

Breakeven:

COST
FAS
FXI
HOOD
KWEB
META

I can’t say that I won’t take advantage of opportunities if I see them but it would have to be something like XBI at 60 or TLT at 90. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Still holding TLT and some XBI at this point while gradually unwinding them. Everything else is gone except some current SPY positions I elected to keep.
