Options Index Trader Off To A Great Start in 2018
February was a good month for our recommendations in Options Index Trader. March is starting off strong as well. We closed out two trades in February and just closed one in March. The February trades made 9.73% and 40.97%. The March trade made 22.22%. If you allocate to our three unit approach, we are up 35.47% which beats the returns on the S&P 500 that is up 1.61% through today. Cumulative returns are now 106.42%.
Look for us to get more active in the coming weeks. The average return on our four trades for the year is 26.61%. Remember 25% a month would give us a return of 400% without compounding returns. Moreover, our portfolio return would have us making 134.04%.
Overall all equity index ETFs were lower for the month of February and mixed in March. The best gainer is the NASDAQ 100 with a gain of 7.65%. The S&P 500 is now up only 1.62%.
We noted in early February, "With a 5% or greater month, the historical precedents tell us that the S&P 500 return for the year could be 25%. But along the way will be at least a 10% draw down which gives us some nice upside". We got that 10% draw down in February and expect a couple down moves as volatility returns for 2018.
