Another tough December 2020. On a personal note, ended with 4% return for the month. I have updated the trades in my Past Journal.
In hindsight, my profits have taken a hit due to 2 reasons mainly:
My penchant for taking 100% hedged trades. It keeps over night safety against black swan events, but does not provide much benefit. Any considerable premium worth good profit is very near. Add to it the hedging cost and it does not remain beneficial at all. Even small spikes hit the stoploss and decay does not happen.
Despite knowing trading, not participating in stock options. Although it still is hinderance due to lesser liquidity, still adding them to my personal list from now on.
Waiting for a good start for 2021.
