May was another good month for my portfolio. I still believe the market will correct at some point in the near future. Because of this I have kept a portion of my rollover account in cash. I am waiting for the next correction to make my entry and hopefully scoop up great stocks at fantastic prices. I don’t want my money to just sit in my brokerage account, so I have been learning and experimenting with trading options. Portfolio updates – This month I made 15 options trades which added $1,348.50 to my brokerage cash account. For the month of May 2015 I sold $12,248.66 in shares, and I reinvested or invested fresh capital totaling $43,942.66 in shares.
