I finished the first quarter +50% YTD and am pleased with the performance.
The portfolio was both stock and options, a formula I will continue 2019 with.
An important takeaway is that I had no big losers. Remember, it is ok to have losers - this is going to happen in trading no matter what - just not big losers.
I will be watching the IWM closely for signs of weakness or a turn. Other trouble spots like Transports and Regional Banks outperformed last week, which, in my opinion, is a good thing.
