#SPX Morning. Been a while….

#SPX Morning. Been a while. Actually a long while. I’ve been getting the income portfolio set and deciding on whether and where to go next. Individual stocks, options, index spreads or even nothing at all. Spreads look to be the winner. Just can’t seem to master that swing trade / short term trade mind set. And rattling my cage, working in the garden, pulling weeds and walking the dog just doesn’t satisfy this old researcher’s mind. So I’ll see how this goes. Closed my two SPX call spreads, Oct 25th 3040/3050 and Oct 28th 3045/3055 this morning for 60% profits. Hopefully I can get WordPress to behave a little better using Firefox.
