    May 2017 – Net Worth and Expenses 

    The weak dollar (and bad investment performance) led to my first negative month this year. I was hoping to have 12 positive months this year. A few months before were barely positive (but only positive thanks to my high savings rate).

    • brokerage accounts 292.9k (-5.4k)
    • ETFs 16.1k (+1.0k)
    • cash 9.4k (+2.6k)
    • alternative investments 65.8k (+0.1k)
    • taxes 1.3k
    • total 385.5k (-0.2k) [-0.05%]

    I lost over 5k this month, despite having a good month on my put selling.

    Monthly Expenses

    • January 5.2k
    • February 2.5k
    • March 2.5k
    • April 3.3k
    • May 3.1k

    It looks quite challenging to reach my projected yearly expenses of 33k. At the moment we are on track for 36k.

    May 2017 – Options Income 

    May was a good month on dollar basis, in Euro it was a loss of 600 Euros. I stopped trading my second account. I will redeploy to another broker soon.

    Far OTM option selling (MTM)

    • January: +1.9k
    • February: +0.5k
    • March: +0.9k
    • April: +1.1k
    • May: +1.1k

    Far OTM option selling (closed trades)

    • January: +1.6k
    • February: +0.8k
    • March: +0.4k
    • April: +1.5k
    • May +0.4k

    I’m looking at MTM numbers, and 1.1k is above my target of 2 %.
