End of the 2ND QTR.
Monday the 30th, is the last trading day for the quarter.
June was a good month....up7.5% YTD for me.
I feel lucky considering my "gambling" trades did not pan out.(Down at least $10-12K)
I was having a nice month as well until I bought the refiners a few days back after that big drop. I should have waited a few more days as likely margin calls are dragging them down for another few days before the true bottom. Oh well, rookie mistake.
Tjdevlin........I'm ahead 5.25% year to date. Am currently 68% in cash. I don't think I ever fell below 50% in cash since Jan. 1. Sometimes as high as 80% in cash. My desire to aggressively trade (at times) creates the need to always have a fair amount of "settled funds" on hand. That's part of the reason for my large cash position. Otherwise, just don't have the desire to give a bunch back to Mr. Market.
