UKX Long trades

index:ukx

#281

Closed at 7486.50. Booked 34 points. Longs down to 8, hedged by 6 shorts.


#282

Closed at 7500.80. Booked another 28.5 points. Longs down to 7.


#283

Closed at 7528.50. Booked another 39+ points. Longs down to 6 & parity with shorts.

That may round off my day, bar re-adding longs on any reversal.


#284

Long at 7499.50. Re-added a 7th as premeditated.


#285

Closed at 7514.80. Booked 15+ points. Parity restored with shorts, for now.


#286

Long at 7499.80. Re-added a 7th. Same logic with decent dividend this week.

Glad to add more longs again if it falls much lower.


#287

Closed at 7525.80. Booked 26 points. Longs down to 6 & parity with shorts.

Will review re-adding another long for UKX dividend of near 18 points later tonight. Small one paid last night.


#288

Closed at 7541.80. Booked 33.5 points. Longs down to 5.

But with 6 shorts held, will reconsider re-adding a long later or take the UKX dividend hit for almost 18 points on one net short.


#289

Long at 7528.80. Re-added a 6th.

A bit higher than I wanted, but I’ve decided to restore parity with 6 shorts, keep all of today’s gains & absorb tonight’s near-18 point UK divi without a hit.


#290

Closed at 7546.30. Settled for 17.5 points. Longs down to 5.


#291

Long at 7542.50. Re-added a 6th for same reasons as above. Protect all today’s gains from significant dividend hit.

Though again a higher re-entry than I’d like, OTOH, we’ve more decent UKX dividends after this week. So it’ll serve its purpose until it’s closed. Also, Sterling still weak.


#292

Closed at 7542.50. Zero points on this, but that wasn’t the main goal on this particular long. Reason for the late long re-add was, as stated earlier, to avoid a dividend hit of 18 points & protect all the day’s gains. Job done! But I was also lucky as euphoric US markets dragged up UKX tonight. Longs down to 5, hedging 6 shorts.


#293

Long at 7514.70. Re-added a 6th. Quite a dip in just 20+ minutes since my last post.


#294

Long at 7488.30. Re-added a 7th. As I may be busy away from desk in spells, will set a limit order at 7519 on this one. Glad to re-add more longs lower down.


#295

Long at 7452.80. An 8th re-added as selling might be overdone. Limit on this at 7483. That’ll do for now.


#296

Closed at 7464. Booked 11+ points, overruling limit. Longs down to 7.


#297

Long at 7443.80. Re-added an 8th. Will let this run on until I return with a limit of 7479.


#298

Long at 7416.50. Re-added a 9th. Won’t add more until a long or one of 6 shorts closed.


#299

Closed at 7430.80. Booked 14+ points. Longs down to 8.

Will now leave things & let previous limit orders run. Need to leave my desk. That’s probably a good thing as future market direction seems harder to predict right now.


#300

Long at 7416. Re-added a 9th. Limit order on this at 7432. Now to finally leave my desk. Typo corrected as posted in rush.
