#302

Short at 7327. Re-added a 9th as I waned to revert to a slight short bias for a while longer.


#303

Closed 7286.80. Booked 40+ points. Shorts back down to 8 & parity restored.

Woeful performance from the PM last night!


#304

Closed 3275. Booked another 26 points. Shorts down to 7.


#305

Closed at 7221.30. Booked another 12.5 points. Shorts reduced to 6.


#306

Short at 7264. Re-added a 7th for better overall balance at this stage. More volatility inevitable.


#307

Closed 7235. Booked 29 points. Really didn’t expect that so soon. Back down to 6 shorts.

But an excellent day overall.


#308

Short at 7228.80. Re-added a 7th for same reasons.


#309

Closed 7220.30. Booked 8.5 points as next direction seems uncertain. Back down to 6 shorts.


#310

Short at 7231.30. Re-added a 7th short for a better overall balance with 8 longs, mindful of the uncertainties ahead.


#311

Short at 7308.30. Re-added an 8th & restored parity with UKX longs.

Have set a temporary limit order on this at 7265 as I need to be out later. Not too fussed if I hold into next week.


#312

Short at 7368.80. Re-added a 9th as UKX seems overbought. But I could be wrong, hence some cover with still 6 longs.

Closed at 7356.30. Booked 12.5 points & restored a better overall balance. Shorts reduced to 8, hedged by 6 longs.


#314

Closed at 7291.80. Booked 16.5 points & reduced shorts to 7.

Very volatile day, which is how some of us prefer it when it comes to trading. Decent day for me so far with 2 longs also closed earlier.


#315

Closed at 7209.30. Booked 22 points. Shorts reduced to 6.


#316

Closed at 7181.80. Booked another 22 points. Shorts reduced to 5.

I’d rather reduce even more short exposure in case of a likely Tory GE win next week.


#317

Closed at 7167.80. Booked another 21 points. - Shorts down to 4. Reasons as stated earlier today.


#318

Short at 7176.50. Re-added a 5th as more extreme volatility seems likely over the next week or so.

#320

Short at 7180.50. Re-added a 5th for added cover.
