OptionsLinebacker Trading Results - 2009

The results posted below do not represent actual gains in our account, however we have traded these actual positions. The reason that I do not list the actual balance in this account is because this is a cash account that is harvested on a monthly basis for income. So for the purposes of illustration, I am displaying our trading results by using a model $100,000 account starting in October 2005.

In the manner that I report these positions, they also do not benefit from monthly Money Market and Dividends that contribute to the overall return, so your overall results very likely could be better than these depending on your broker.

Our positions are for illustration only and do not represent recommendations to buy nor sell to our subscribers.
