Before jumping into the June 2016 number, there is something to share. The past 6 weeks, I have not been very active at all in the community and on my blog. After a very intense spring – maybe too intensive-, it looks like I burned out from blogging. I could not find the energy anymore. It also did not seem to matter at all.Last week, on a nice technofstival, some thoughts about blogging and posting started to flow again in through my brain. Did the technobeats blew away all doubts? One thing is sure, I will focus more on my needs, less on my wants, also while blogging.
While having this blog burnout, I did not stop my trading. So, now that the blockage is out of the way, let’s get to the numbers
For now, dividends are only a small portion of my passive income strategy. I have a idea in place to grow my DGI portfolio with mainly Belgian companies (Partly for tax purposes). More on that later.
This month’s income was nice: 124,61€

Options Premium Income
June was yet anther exciting month form my option strategy. Income was never higher, most thnks to the gint bull run in the GDX tracker. I just love this one. I am still working to try to mximize my profit on some covered calls after some GREEDY covered call writing. Yet another note to myself: only do this when you really want to sell!
This month’s income was nice: 555,55€
The Brexit created a nice set of opportunities and challenges for me. Some puts I have are really deep in the money due to the banking fears. It promises to be a hot summer.
