Exxon Mobil Stock (XOM) Trade Analysis – Handling A Losing Trade

Today I concluded the final trade from the 2014 Exxon Mobil Stock trades. This trade had started November 28 2014. The end of the last trade for 2014 in Exxon Mobil Stock shows what an investor can accomplish if they put aside their emotions, turn down the rhetoric from analysts and simply concentrate on the chart patterns the stock is exhibiting.

Reviewing Trades Has Benefits

Investors can learn a lot from other investor’s trades. I spend a lot of time reviewing other investor trades and when possible, asking questions to determine why they “thought” a certain way or did a specific move.

Games We Like To Play

I often look at Put Selling and option trading in general as a game of chess. You are not just moving around the pieces on the board, but actually working toward an eventual outcome to the game itself. The chess pieces are merely the steps being taken to end the trade profitably and release the capital from the trade, fully intact and ready to be used for another trade.

15% Of My Entire Portfolio Tied To This One XOM Stock Trade

Last year I started 2014 with $1,250,000.00 (US$) in capital. By mid-December I had $196,250 of that capital tied to this one Exxon Stock trade which started November 28 when XOM stock was at $90.70. That means that a full 15% of the original capital I started the 2014 year with, was at risk in this trade. Oil meanwhile was collapsing and Exxon Mobil Stock has established a pattern of lower highs and was falling repeatedly.

By mid-December a roll-down was needed to keep the trade away from possible assignment of shares as Exxon Mobil Stock commenced to fall. That’s when the original capital of $44,500 began to mushroom.

This trade analysis is lengthy at 2300 words and will require 8 pages if printed, but I believe I have learned more from studying past trades and learning from their outcome than from any other method available.
