I also keep cash and own (pay for) an apartment. I have another broker account with less than 5k just for the fun of it but I don't won't to update this "about me" all the time.
There you have it full transparency.
I understand this might look like Mike Greens passive Horror portfolio. I also realise that if I'd like to (partially) retire B4 67 this allocation might not do. I don't have time to "trade" so this is the best I came up with. Feel free to send feedback.

I can't see the answers to my questions.
I know people have provided answers to my question but somehow I can't seem them under my question. I can see the comments but those are not the answers.
If I go to a label I can see different answers tho. But sadly, I can't answer or comment /interact with different answers.
I actually already did a post mortem ish post about it here:https://www.tradingview.com/chart/RDSA/YqlWhzHf-Tried-to-be-smart-at-the-start-of-the-year/
But the executive summary is: On Jan 3 after SuperSulei was killed (Iran General) I saw it as a good moment to buy OIL. For a brief 48h its was going well but just a month into it the oil price was down 15% from the top and the stonk was down -13% not at all what I was hoping for.
At that time I thought ah still no ww3 and the world economy is sort of fine, this is temporary (I'm really good at wishful thinking).
So I bought Shell at the top and so far it's basically down 55%.
I bought more at basically half the price 13 EUR so I halved my average cost but at the time I was hoping the world would go back to normal after lockdown 1 (since countries like Korea and Singapore got the virus it under control so quickly).
So it seems I'm making two mistakes at once,
First, not selling when something drastically changed in the buy thesis and second catching a falling knife. I am sure I made more mistakes feel free to point them out.
I think this can be useful for a lot of people who wonder how does this all work and why does it take so long to develop drugs?
For those looking for a primer of sorts of how this is done I uploaded a presentation from Torreya. If you find it useful you can find more of their publications here: https://torreya.com/publications
It's fun to look at because it's really a throwback to b4 Covid world 😄
These Links might help;
on Gamma scalping:
Based on a GS research piece called "Q&A on Gamma and Option-Driven Equity Flows"
Lots of good links here (specifically for everything VIX related):
A nice start for "How the Vix Works":
This piece by Squeeze metrics explains a lot of different things (Helpfull to understand what Mr Great Beard Charlie McElligott talks about)
Hope these links saves someone time!
So I know Grant Williams has left however I really loved his content, long conversations with people I never heard about. The interview series "On The Road" with Steve Diggle is fantastic and I also loved the two-part series with Anthony Deden.
My question is is there more like this in the works? I know you guys did a lot of corona stuff and I get that but I enjoy the sort of biographical interviews as well :D
The Road was worth the production money if you ask me because I basically subscribed to RV to see more of that stuff 😎🤘 I'm liking all the new stuff but I'm a sucker for the above.
PS: To anyone listening I reccomend you watch the interview with Dr. Harald Malmgren from the WASHINGTON, D.C. – EPISODE 3.

You should be able to look at the results via the above link.
I included the source code so that you can see how and what I did. If you want to replicate you will need approval from twitter to use the API.
I admit the graphs could look better but making this took me long enough 😄
