Irrationally mad decision making to obtain the American Dream.

My 7 day put option trades up 35% – AAPL, GOOG, PCLN, QQQ

Apple reported earnings today so I would have been closed out before any earnings reports. If I would have sold yesterday % profits would have been higher or the low of today. By far I entered the QQQ’s a bit later into the downtrend (2 days later) after a slight higher move on the market waiting for the next fall. It proved to be the best and also the most affordable play. An average person could of bought 10 contracts for $1,420 dollars in a super small account and earned a 25% return within a few days. $500 a week is more than I earn now. LOL. I don’t know if I’ll ever trade again. My subconscious dreams are even telling me I have no basic control over my life. You never have control over the stock market. You only hold the trigger to buy or sell and hopefully Lady Luck is on your side. I earned around 35% total on these 4 plays. It could of been much higher if I had waited (waited!) for the pop on Apple I intuitively knew would happen after it’s first hard fall. I would of been over 100% for the 7 days. See below.

Here are the close on my 4 put option trades:
AAPL 555 MAY PUT Bought @ $20.44 / Close Sold @ $22.29
GOOG 610 MAY PUT Bought @ $19.40 / Close Sold @ $19.10
PCLN 655 MAY PUT Bought @ $20.50 / Close Sold @ $20.70
QQQ 66 MAY PUT Bought @ $1.42 / Close Sold @ $1.93

Now that Apple had positive results and the entire market has followed its lead I would switch directions and start playing options for the next few days. However, I wouldn’t be so confident to see it continually going up even though it had a 10% pull back. Any bad news could send Apple’s stock quickly down.
