May 2021 marks the first full month of The Rational Speculator operating as a paid membership platform. The enhanced features include near real time updates via web alert, email and Tweet and members are encourage to ask questions or leave feedback via the new comments section which is an important part of the educational environment.
Two new trading positions were opened and three trading positions were closed during May for a total profit of $3,800 based on The Rational Speculator’s standard position sizing. The detailed track record can be found here. I have been very selective in adding positions recently as opportunities sporting higher volatility have been elusive. Eventually, there will be plenty of opportunity so there is no need to force trades in the meantime. It costs only $40 per month to join with the first month free and the ability to drop the membership at any time. You can find out more about membership here. The Rational Speculator is an educational platform so questions are expected and welcomed.
