March results for Selling Spreads in a Small IRA Account in $NDX, $SPX, and $RUT

Below are my results using $NDX, $SPX, and $RUT along with a few puts sold.  With this account of approximately $45000 I made a Monthly P and L of  4.5% or 179% APR.   My method is a Modified Karen technique where I am "not" trying to have a balanced portfolio but rather skewed in the direction of the overall "Weekly Trend", I sell spreads, and I load up on in the opposite direction when the Bollinger Bands are Touched (or Fractal Breakout which is the same as they both could be interpreted as a reversal soon using a daily chart).  When I do balance my portfolio it is for shorter DTE spreads.  Today - my portfolio is relatively balanced.
