    Virtually every good trade this qtr was in trading account ($PLUG $ANGI $AAPL $MONT) and losses in IRA ($TSLA, $NFLX, $VXX, $MONT). Ouch!

    • J Mintzmyer: It was puts on $TSLA $NFLX $MONT and calls on $VXX... Still very risky. I try to treat risk equally in the IRA/trading for tax balancing.

    • NLTInvestor: why not keep safe investments for your ira and more risky for taxable account so you can harvest the loss?

    • J Mintzmyer: Most of it was just luck. When I went to buy the $AAPL earnings calls- I only had cash in my trading acct.

    • J Mintzmyer: I was in the midst of account transfers when I rolled the $AAPL to bigger profits and was betting big against $MONT.
