    I agree Mark, you are doing fantastic. I thought I was doing well with my 21% return compared to the Nasdaqs -2.8% return for the year. Great job buddy.

    Author’s reply » 24% outperformance is great too. A couple well timed put or call purchases has really helped such as the Friday employment report when Obama promised us 'great jobs report' - one day like that can add 1-2% even if you just throw 6% into a SPY put. Have had a few of those this year both up and down and that helps. Staying high in cash during the big drawdown in May also helped; didnt have any big losses to make up.
