UKX Short trades

#370

Closed at 7594.80. Booked a quick 20+ points, just in case of further bounces soon.

Shorts back down to 7.


#371

Closed at 7514.80. Booked 20 points. Shorts reduced to 6, hedged by now 5 longs.


#372

Short at 7535.30. Re-added a 7th, hedged by 6 longs. Still have a slight bias to the short side.

Typo corrected as posted in early morning rush: opened 7535.30, not 7353.30.


#373

Short at 7592.20. Re-added an 8th. Hedged by 4 longs.


#374

Closed 7581.80. Booked 10+ points & reduced shorts to 7.

Working overtime again, but it rounds off another decent week for me.


#375

Short at 7634. Re-added an 8th. Despite weaker Sterling, things again look overdone & retesting recent resistance levels.


#376

Closed 7611. Booked 23 points. However, I remain under the cosh as I still hold 7 shorts & Sterling’s increasing weakness not helpful.


#377

Short at 7626.30. Re-added an 8th as I feel UKX is overdone & resistance levels not far above.


#378

Closed 7611.80. Booked 14.5 points. Shorts reduced to 7.


#379

Short at 7629.30. An 8th re-added, same logic.


#380

Closed at 7615.30. Booked 14 points more. Shorts down to 7.


#381

Short at 7627.80. Another 8th re-add partly due to Sterling hopefully finding support & resistance not far above.


#382

Closed 7617.80. Booked 10 points more. Shorts down to 7 again.


#383

Short at 7638. An 8th re-added due to recent resistance not far above.


#384

Closed 7624. Booked 14 points. I anticipate a trickier than usual day or two ahead. Shorts down to 7.


#385

Short at 7638.30. Try to repeat with an 8th re-added. Same logic (ie. resistance not far above, et al).


#386

Closed 7625. Taken 13+ points. Difficult period for short positions.


#387

Short at 7638.80. An 8th re-add, same reasons as recent shorts.


#388

Closed at 7632.30. Settled for 6.5 points more. It’ll cushion tonight’s small dividend hit.

By the by, UKX short positions seem to be relatively okay for a few weeks as regards divi hits. Nothing of any account for a while. Though when they mount later in the year, they’ll come thick & fast. Back down to 7 shorts. - Edit: typo.


#389

Short at 7652. Re-added an 8th. Same logic.
