Weekly Trade Summary: July 23 - July 29

Having a difficult time creating these weekly trade update blog posts...super busy with work...so this is one week late.

I didn't close any trades this week, but I made three adjustments and entered one new trade.  Details of last week's trading below:

Total defined risk for these trades 33.3% of the account net liquidation value.

30 trades have been closed this year...16 wins and 14 losses. Return on the account for the year is at 2.7%.  Total win rate is at 53%. The win rate on the core trades is at 62%. Not happy with the core trade win rate. Of the 6 open trades, 3 currently have a positive P&L.

Broken wing butterflies are not performing as well as last year. I am digging into the iron condor backtest results a bit more right now to see how well they have performed in 2017. My IC research has been on hold for about one month now due to vacation and work.
