But it has also been achieved with a blend of both Cashflow On Demand and some of our more Advanced Strategies.

Hi Mitch, I would like to nominate as Aprils TOTM and in doing so I would like to thank the whole team at AIE for the opportunity. And to learn from your knowledge and experience and particularly your patience.

Furthermore, I joined AIE back in 2019 with the intention of learning to trade and supplement my income. And I think I completed about 20% of the COD course when some personal and business interruptions brought it to an abrupt halt.

2 years later and a lifestyle change I started again in January 2021. I completed the COD course and entered my 1st Covered call on February 8. Also, was exercised on 4 calls and returned 4.28% for February.

This really wet my whistle, so I enrolled in the Advanced options course. And what an eye opener and learning experience that has turned out to be.

My TOTM results for April are as follows:
All trades are Net.

Hey gang,

Wow, what a gangbuster month April was, I shifted gears and ramped up activity becoming increasingly comfortable with AO trades. And I find that using RSI4 to buy long calls at delta 0.7 is by far my favourite method to date. But this month I did experiment with different AO methods in the ASX and US with different levels of comfort.

There was nothing more satisfying than doing my own trade and then seeing your recommendation pop out on it the next day which occurred a few times this month, I must’ve learnt something!

So here we go, MTM attached, overall portfolio’s time weighted return was 10.30% for the month.

All up 17 trades closed out during the month, 13 profitable = 76% success rate.
3 trades were overnight and collected 15.17%, 19.47% and 41.85% respectively!
3 trades were greater then 40% return!

Happy days!
