Cashing out Our Long-Term Portfolio – 29 Trades in 6 Months – Up 19%

On The Risks of Not Taking RisksAnd then there were 2.  

Just two positions remain in our Long-Term Portfolio now, short puts we sold against HOV an EGLE that are "losers," so far.  Of our other 29 virtual trades, which we finished closing today, only 3 have a loss, which gives us an 83% winning percentage – which is pretty much in-line with our usual performance for PSW Members (see our Trade Reviews).  

If you want a quick summary of my reasoning for getting back to cash – it's the same one I had back in March, when we cashed out our Income Portfolio.  I was interviewed on TV at the time, where I made my case for caution.  Since then, the S&P is up from 1,890 to 1,920 and that rubber band is simply stretched too tightly for our liking now – so we cash out our more aggressive portfolio too.  

Without further ado, here's our trade history in the Long-Term Portfolio, which died a sudden death on May 28th and 29th (there were a lot of positions to close) of 2014, at the age of just 6 months:
