    July 2017 – Net Worth and Expenses 

    It sounds like a broken record: the weak Dollar reduced my gains.

    • brokerage accounts 292.8k (-4.5k)
    • ETFs 17.0k (+0.4k)
    • cash 14.8k (+4.5k)
    • alternative investments 64.2k (-1.5k)
    • taxes 3.4k
    • total 392.2k (+0.1k) [+0.03%]

    So, it is barely a profit. My Put Selling is working great, but my other trades not.

    Monthly Expenses

    • January 5.2k
    • February 2.5k
    • March 2.5k
    • April 3.3k
    • May 3.1k
    • June 2.1k
    • July 2.3k

    At least the expenses were low. The second half of the year should be cheaper than the first half. January is by far our most expensive month.
