My accounts were down this week as well. Somewhat surprisingly, the down markets do not bother me very much. I just stick to my plan and continue to add assets to increase my future income. Let’s check out the activity in the accounts for this past week.

Wrap Up

The total amount of dividends and options premium received this week was $26.14. This week was not nearly as busy as last week. There was not a lot of activity in the accounts this week. The income generated from the accounts was down significantly this week, but that is going to happen from time to time. Next week, I will be selling some covered calls on the stocks that have been assigned. I am looking forward to receiving more in dividends next week as well. That wraps it up for this week. Thanks for following along!
