#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.


#398

Short at 7526. Re-added a 7th as global markets seem to be trending down &, even if short-lived, any panic about China’s coronavirus may well see more negative sentiment spread across markets.


#399

Closed at 7496.50. Booked 29.5 points. Shorts down to 6 &, for now, back to parity with longs.


#400

Short at 7505.80. Re-added a 7th as global markets may get much more jittery this week due to the spread of Coronavirus .


#401

Closed at 7460.80. Booked 45 points. Shorts down to 6. Parity restored with longs.
