  • Sell 5265 BHP @ 9.84

    Well BHP is certainly powering along. But I need the money quickly and the change from Hartley’s to my new broker Tricom is going slow. So even though I think it has some legs I want out.

  • Sell & Buy 5265 BHP @ 8.60

    I haven’t heard if this deal went through at the market close but I assume it did. I basically sell and buy back at the same price thereby chrystalising some losses on BHP for the end of financial year. The options trades have been profitable so the entire position wasn’t too bad until this week. […]

  • BHP Apr 9.73 Calls expire worthless

    BHP Apr 9.73 Calls expired worthless today. I wouldn’t mind being exercise at $9.73 but it was not to be. Hartleys shutting down is a major pain as it makes trading difficult, plus I need to re-establish all the trading and margin accounts.

  • R.I.P. Hartleys (non-WA)

    Well Hartleys is no more (unless you live in WA). Bummer really, as they were my full service broker and that’s how I did my options trading. I can move either with my broker to a new firm or go fully on-line and use Commsec. Full service brokers are good for after-market trades and occassional […]

  • Incomplete BHP trades

    I haven’t noted a few trading attempts that didn’t come off recently. Mainly because I was too busy to write something that didn’t happen. With hindsight I think that was slack — trades that don’t come off are still an attempt to trade. As BHP fell to $9.07 (1 April) I put a buy order […]

  • Use all your resources

    I just realised I had a copy of Options as a Strategic Investment (2nd Edition) on my bookshelf. Doh! I first read it years ago when Australian options markets were not as liquid for small investors. I have some light bedtime reading coming up. That link is for a Google search in case you’ve never […]

  • Sell 5 BHP Apr 9.73 Calls @ 0.20

    I can’t add! In the last article on option trading, I said my net premiums on BHP were $0.495. The numbers given add up to $0.595! Actually now that I’ve checked my trading statements the after commission premiums are $0.4593. I pulled out my written trading strategy ;). It told me to write 5 BHP […]
