Note: The last column on the right hand side "Annualised Income Stream Percent Return (%)"  shows the 30 Day Trading strategy as an income stream of "dividends", option "income" (usually call option strategies) and option "hedging" (protective put options). By design this excludes stock unrealized/realized gain/loss so is deliberately different than "Annualised Total Strategy Percent Return (%)". This is a useful measure of the ongoing annual costs of running 30 Day Trading strategies (versus buy and hold). This can measure how effective the option "hedges" were over the course of the year (sometimes they may make money, but often option "hedges" are a drag on returns). Combining "income" option trades and "dividends" it can be seen whether or not these compensated for cost of "hedges" (sometimes they will). This is a unique measurement for 30 Day Trading strategies to see which category of "dividends", option "income" or option "hedges" helps (or hurts) annual returns.

Note: The last column on the right hand side "Annualised Income Stream Percent Return (%)"  shows the 30 Day Trading strategy as an income stream of "dividends", option "income" (usually call option strategies) and option "hedging" (protective put options). By design this excludes stock unrealized/realized gain/loss so is deliberately different than "Annualised Total Strategy Percent Return (%)". This is a useful measure of the ongoing annual costs of running 30 Day Trading strategies (versus buy and hold). This can measure how effective the option "hedges" were over the course of the year (sometimes they may make money, but often option "hedges" are a drag on returns). Combining "income" option trades and "dividends" it can be seen whether or not these compensated for cost of "hedges" (sometimes they will). This is a unique measurement for 30 Day Trading strategies to see which category of "dividends", option "income" or option "hedges" helps (or hurts) annual returns.
