Day 18: 5K to 1 Million - 23.7% Total Portfolio Growth AchievedsteemCreated with Sketch.

in #money2 years ago

Quick Recap:

Starting September 23rd, 2019, I embarked on the journey to turn $5000 into one million dollars by trading stocks and cryptocurrencies in a way that anybody can replicate. I am using Tastyworks as my main trading platform for stocks and options (You can sign up for your own account with my referral link)

For crypto, I am mostly using Binance and KuCoin.  You can sign up for Binance and KuCoin with my referral links as well. See the Day 1 Blog for my exact trading strategy


Day 18

The headlines surrounding the trade talks has been all over the place.  And the market reacted to both the positive and the negative news, causing the market to be trading in a tight range throughout the day. 

This is a good indication that a bigger move is about to come.  Just that we don't know when, or if it will be to the up, or down side. 

That is why Iron Condor is still my strategy of choice in this market. 

I make 2 trades around the NDX index (Nasdaq) today, and by making these 2 trades, I have achieved a milestone! 

The portfolio is Up 23.4% in 18 Days :)
