Dec 2014 Portfolio

Month of December

Finally the last month of the year has arrived. Came back from cruise and I find myself planning for the next holiday again. You can never spend too much time thinking about your next holiday.

Stocks
Previously I was holding to 3 stocks which have been closed due to the recent drop in market. Now I’m looking at a few stocks which are showing rebounds from their technicals.

Options on Futures
The market drop mentioned caused me to close 2 of the Dec contracts earlier to put some money back into the account. Besides, I do not need the to wait another 10 days just to get $20-$25 while risking my entire account going into a margin call situation. I try to avoid margin call as much as I can. And you should too. If new funds are not injected into the account or positions are not closed when you receive a margin call, the broker will force close ALL your positions and most of the time, it will cause trouble to your account. Hence you should try to avoid a margin call as much as you can.
