DTE Energy Company (DTE) Investment Purchase

Challenge Accounts:

Investing Account Balance: $247.27
Stock / Futures Trading Balance: $720.00 (In a trade, this floats)
Online Savings Balance: $27.15

Personal Trading Thoughts: For the Challenge Project I currently have a 68 Put on June Lean Hogs, at .200 or $80.00. Looking for the usual seasonal weakness we get in Lean Hogs; which the 5 year average, the 15 year average, and the 30 year average all demonstrate. My profit stop is in at .475 limit, or $190.00 before commissions.

Personal Investing Thoughts: Market is struggling to make another high. Just can't seem to get it done. Until that happens? I'm not overly optimistic about higher highs. Just watching and waiting. My DTE stock has performed well in last month or so. I'll talk about that today.

This is not an investment or trading recommendation. The losses in trading can be very real, and depending on the investment vehicle, can exceed your initial investment. I am not a licensed trading or investment adviser, or financial planner. But I do have 12 years of experience in trading and investing in these markets. The Challenge accounts are run for the education of other traders who should make their own decisions based off their own research, and tolerance for risk.
