At the end of March 2023, I was managing 3 small investment portfolios. The total value of all portfolios combined was USD 6,466.07 / EUR 5,948.35.
One of my short-term goals is to grow portfolios to $10,000. To get there it is planned to deposit additional capital, plus selling options premium.
It was a good month for portfolio #1. It grew by + EUR 2,426.37 and stood at EUR 4,379.47 ($4,760.70) at the end of the month. For the truth's sake, we deposited an additional EUR 2,200 in it to have margin collateral for our options trades.
The main goal for this portfolio at the moment is to grow it to 100 fully covered Amazon shares, so we can sell covered calls on Amazon.
At the end of March, we were holding just 19 shares of Amazon. 81 to go. The average buy price per Amazon share is $105.02
Additionally, we are selling high probability options trades (delta under 0.1) collecting options premium to boost the returns for the portfolio.
In March we were selling options with AMZN, INTC, BAC, and WFC stocks.
In the end, we managed to collect +198.77 USD from expired options trades. That would give about a 4.17% yield from the portfolio's value.
Newest and smallest portfolio so far.
Opened at the start of February by opening a new account with Interactive Brokers and depositing EUR 50/mo. Buying TLRY stock. Currently holding 54 TLRY with an average buy price $3.05.
46 shares to go before will start selling covered calls on it.
The total value of the portfolio: EUR 132.37 / USD 143.78
Crypto Portfolio #3
Our third portfolio is a crypto portfolio, where I trade options on the Deribit trading platform with Ethereum.
At the end of March total value of this portfolio was $1,561.59 (EUR 1,436.51)
in March we took a -0.2193 ETH loss, which comes from badly managed options trades from the previous months.
Overall it was a good month with most gains coming from the first portfolio, and no surprise of that as it also is the largest one.
