#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.


#390

Closed at 7638. Booked 14 points. Probably closed much too soon with Sterling recovering a bit today, but with 7 shorts left, I’d rather book more points as I need to leave my desk later.


#391

Short 7615.30. Re-added an 8th due to stronger Sterling & today’s reversal from recent resistance levels. These hedged by 4 longs.


#392

Closed at 7590.80. Booked 24.5 points. Shorts reduced to 7.


#393

Short at 7627.30. Re-added an 8th as things looking overdone again.


#394

Closed at 7616.30. Booked 11 points.

Though I think it’ll be much lower again later, I’d rather continue booking quick gains in what remains a volatile climate.


#395

Short at 7628.20. Same logic. Back up to 8 shorts.


#396

Closed at 7611.80. Booked 16+ points. Shorts back to 7.


#397

Closed 7505.30. Booked 30 points. Shorts reduced to 6.
