I should have said scroll down to the bottom for the ‘Markets’ section. The naked trader does not record all his trades on the website and he does short stocks and indices. His books are well worth a read as they are quite easy to digest and explain his philosophy. Here is a link to his amazon page which shows you his books and gives a bit of background about him.
I have been investing for many years now having got my first shares as part of an employee share scheme at Beecham Pharmaceuticals, as it was back then (ended up as GSK). I have added to my portfolio since then whenever funds have been available. Over the years I have tried to put as much as possible in tax efficient wrappers, starting with PEPs and now ISAs. I would describe myself as an investor rather than a trader, although I do have an account with a set amount of capital which I use for my more risky or experimental ‘trades’. If they come off they may get moved into my ISA as and when funds become available there. I try to run my portfolio in a tax efficient manner by utilising my CGT allowance each year and I have moved most of my high dividend paying stocks into my ISA so as not to incur additional tax liabilities on those dividends. I work part-time and so I do use automatic stop losses in my ‘trading’ account as I am not in a position to trade every day (half-term this week though). This is a double-edged sword however, as there are often quite large swings early in the morning and you can get stopped out of a share only for it to stage a complete recovery later in the day.
