# UKX Short trades

**jackdawsson**#63

Closed at 7491. Booked 14 points. Back to parity, one short v one long (other thread).

As out today, limit orders set on the other 2.

Short 7492.80 limit at 7470.

Long 7507 limit at 7530.

**jackdawsson**#65

Closed 7512.80. Booked quick 10 points.

Down to one short with limit order as stated earlier. Off out soon, so no new UKX positions added for a while.

**jackdawsson**#66

Short at 7526.30. Re-added 2nd position.

Limit order set on this at 7514 looking for 12+ points later. Will post if triggered after 2 PM.

**jackdawsson**#67

Closed at 7513.80. Booked 12.5 more points. Limit triggered at 14.46 hours. Down to one UKX short.

**jackdawsson**#69

Short at 7540. Re-added a 3rd. Reasons the same.

Temporary limit order on this at 7520.

**jackdawsson**#70

Short at 7565. A 4th short.

Will now let things run without further adds for a while. Boris as PM is a factor behind the spike, but how long will it last for?

**jackdawsson**#73

Closed 7555.80. Booked 10+ more points. Reasons: rather book more points in a climate of anticipated extreme volatility.

**jackdawsson**#75

Closed at 7559.50. Booked 11.5 points. Maybe snatching at gains too soon, but with a new PM Iād rather take more points.

**jackdawsson**#77

Closed at 7565. Booked only 5.8 points on this due to extent of earlier spike in UKX. Feel better being down to 3 UKX shorts for now.

**jackdawsson**#78

Closed at 7515. Booked 25 points as an insurance in a very volatile climate. Down to 2 shorts.

**jackdawsson**#79

Closed at 7501.30. Booked another 17.5 points. Reasons same.

Now down to parity between shorts & longs, one of each.

**jackdawsson**#80

Closed at 7479.30. Booked another 13.5 points on last UKX short.

Just hold 2 UKX longs now, but would hedge again if this looks like falling much further.
