Here are my monthly profits along with a 6 month forward moving average of each (the average is for the current month and the next five months). My records for 2007 and 2008 are not nearly as reliable so are not included.
Two of my three most profitable months since 2009 have been this month and last month. Four of my six most profitable months were the four most recent months.
Unfortunately I have not been able to upload my recent trades from Interactive Brokers to Profit.ly, so my profits at IB do not show up on Profit.ly (but do show up in the chart below).
These figures do not include data fees or borrow costs.

Whats the prob w/Profit.ly & IB?
I think it is specific to users of the Alpine security device or higher (not the card). I could be wrong — I don’t know anyone else who uses the same security device and auto-imports to Profit.ly. I was slow to bring up the issue with Mike Mossieri and he is currently finishing up a big update so he hasn’t had time to investigate what my problem is.
Ugh. I inflated last month’s profit total by failing to mark to market my BIZM boxed position. My profit has been adjusted downward by $12k from about $48k to just under $36k. That does not change the conclusions of this post. I apologize for the error and pledge to not repeat it. I still have not been able to upload my trades at IB to Profit.ly.
