SHARPE INCOME … Selling TLT and SHY

Posted on Apr 20 2016 - 2:35pm by Sharpe Trade

The original Sharpe Income post that explains this project can be found here.

The Sharpe Income category be found by clicking on that red ‘Sharpe Income’ tag next to this post title, or by clicking here.

We continue the discussion from the last entry.


We began this project, which is free to follow along, with $500. All in an effort to help out the small retail investor understand the importance of growing an income account, as opposed to a trading account.

At the current prices, the Sharpe Income project should be considered as selling all TLT and SHY; of the embedded strategy.   At the time of this writing, they should be considered as ‘sold’.  It’s not too hard to figure out.  They’re heading down.  We can buy them back later.

These instruments are purchased, under the “ETF Commission Free” program, as previously outlined, that many brokers offer.

We will record the exact metrics on the spreadsheet in a short while, and continue the ‘Sharpe Income‘ project in the next entry
