#61

Closed at 7501.30. Booked 6 quick points. Parity between long & short restored, one of each still open.


#62

Short at 7505. Re-added 2nd short for next week, hedged by 1 long at 7507.


#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.


#64

Short at 7522.80. Re-added 2nd UKX short for same reasons.


#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.


#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.


#67

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


#68

Short at 7518.80. Re-added a 2nd. Reasons as before.


#69

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

Temporary limit order on this at 7520.


#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?


#71

Closed at 7554.80. Booked quick 10+ points. Down to 3 shorts.


#72

Short at 7566. Re-added a 4th, same reasons.


#73

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


#74

Short at 7571. Re-added a 4th for same reasons. Resistance level not far above.


#75

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


#76

Short at 7570.80. Back to 4 UKX shorts for same reasons.


#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.


#78

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


#79

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

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


#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.
