UKX Long trades

#221

Closed at 7654. Settled for another 6+ points to end my day. Longs down to 2.


#222

Closed at 7682.90. Booked 14.5+ points more on an after-hours spike. Longs reduced to 1.


#223

Long at 7655.90. Re-added a 2nd within minutes of closing the last long & at a lower entry level to boot.

Some very volatile moves on low volume as is typical enough after-hours.


#224

Long at 7619.50. Re-added a 3rd, this one a few points away from nearest short.

Nearly 4.00AM right now. Time to retire a brief spell.


#225

Long at 7578.30. Re-added a 4th, now hedging 7 shorts.

A much better overall balance restored for a while. I was down to 1 long & 8 shorts yesterday


#226

Long at 7559.50. A 5th added. Will now leave things for longer until another long or one of 7 shorts is well in profit.


#227

Closed both at 7591.30. Booked a useful 44.8 points. Longs down to 3.


#228

Closed at 7628.80. Booked 9+ points. Longs down to 2.


#229

Long at 7610.80. Re-added a 3rd mostly as Sterling regaining strength.


#230

Long at 7589. Re-added a 4th & willing to add more longs lower down.


#231

Long at 7568.30. A 5th add as premeditated.

Will again let things run on for a while longer until a long or one of 7 shorts is in profit. Sterling value still a bit higher than recently.


#232

Closed 7576.80. Settled for 8.5 points. Reason: next major direction seems less certain for now. Also no UKX dividends this week. Longs down to 4.


#233

Long at 7560. A 5th re-added. Sterling’s value weakening again.


#234

Long at 7535.30. Re-added a 6th, hedging 7 shorts.

Will let things run for a good while as my lowest long only a few points away from my highest short.


#235

Closed at 7551.30. Booked 16 points. Longs reduced to 5.


#236

Long at 7505.80. Re-added a 6th, now hedged with also 6 shorts.


#237

Closed at 7515.80. Booked a very quick 10 points.

Longs down to 5 & that may end my day. Another decent one overall.


#238

Closed both the above at 7618.80. Booked 87.8 points. Longs down to 3.

Didn’t expect the extent of today’s rally after yesterday’s reversal, but not complaining despite still holding 7 shorts.


#239

Closed at 7627.80. Booked another 17 points.

That’s 104.8 points for today & wraps things up for the week. I’ll probably not add to my 7 shorts, but will await a reversal later to re-add more longs


#240

Long at 7606.30. Re-added a 3rd long as an extra hedge for the week ahead. Largely because with volatile, sentiment-driven markets, we can never be 100% sure either way. Over the short-term at least.

Glad to again re-add more longs on further reversals.
