Poll results

Once a year 14.80%
Twice a year 26.80%
Three times a year 26.80%
Four times a year 12.20%
More than four times a year 19.50%
Do you make buy/sell decisions during your holidays?
Always 22.00%
Sometimes 48.80%
Never 29.30%

Saving regularly and selling covered calls and cash-secured puts requires regular managing, perhaps once a week or even more frequently. Otherwise, a Monday Morning portfolio doesn’t need attention any more often than a few times a year.

If we think that our portfolios need regular attention, it has never been easier. Some of our members have done it in the car while their partner drove. Some developing countries which never reached the phase of transmitting messages through copper wires, now have Internet access. They are often outstanding holiday locations.

It is better to have Internet access and not need it than need it and not have it. It does make portfolio management simple.

A sincere thank you to all who participated.

We have designed the Monday Morning Millionaire Program to offer abstracted investment education. Over the last two decades, the program has outperformed over 90% of portfolios, including professionally managed ones.

The program does not provide any investment advice or endorsements.

Members can read our posts in less than five minutes. Following and studying the links embedded in these posts would take longer. How members manage a post depends on their level of interest and investing knowledge.
