UKX Short trades

index:ukx

#121

Closed at 1769. Booked 31+ points. Obviously prefer a decent bounce soon than going lower.


#122

Short at 7186. Reestablished some short protection against underwater longs.


#123

Closed at 7161.50. Booked 24.5 points. That may be it from me until we see a decent bounce.


#124

Short at 7172.50. Re-added a short hedge for same reasons.


#125

Closed at 7153. Settled for a further 19.5 points. Rounds off another decent day, but looking to go short again on any bounce.


#126

Short at 7171.50. Decent bounce from yesterday’s lows. Again re-established a new short hedge mostly as protection against UKX longs.


#127

Closed at 7134. Booked 37.5 points. Bar shorting further bounces, that may have to do before a longer Bank Holiday w/end.


#128

Short at 7148.30. Re-established another protective short hedge in view of China raising tariffs on US exports today & the chances of Trump hitting back with further increases on China’s exports to raise the ante further still.


#129

Short at 7172. Added a 2nd short hedge for same reasons in case of heightened jitters over the longer BH w/end. Glad to keep both open for next week unless decent gains available sooner.


#130

Closed both shorts at 7102. Points taken 116.30.

Rounds off an excellent day for me come what may.


#131

Short at 7103. New strategic short hedge, mindful of intraday falls below 7000 during after-hours trading yesterday.


#132

Closed at 7068.30. Booked 34.5+ points.

Rather take decent gains, though UKX not without risk of much further downside. But rightly or wrongly, I still consider a GE to be at least a few weeks away & so further upward spikes seem likely.


#133

Short at 106.50. New protective short hedge to 5 longs. Will add on further rises.


#134

Short at 7116.30. Added a 2nd for same reasons. Will now hang fire a little.

Target for later will be at least more than 50 points for each short.


#135

Closed at 7069. Settled for 47+ points on 1 short only largely as gains came sooner than I anticipated. One short hedge left.


#136

Closed at 7062.80. Settled for a further 43.5+ points. Same reasons.

Gains too quick & too much to let slip away. I also think we’ll continue to see more upward spikes before the bigger sell-off later.


#137

Short at 7098. Again a new hedge short. Will continue to add more shorts if UKX continues rising. I don’t feel very confident that gains will be consolidated for long in this climate.


#138

Short at 7120. Premeditated 2nd protective short hedge.

Now to hang fire again for a longer period. Would only add a 3rd short if over 7150 seen.


#139

Short at 7156.30. A 3rd protective hedge to 5 UKX longs for same reasons. That’s it from me for a while as market moves pan out.


#140

Short at 7204. A 4th protective hedge to still 5 UKX longs in case of a GE announcement very soon &, probably, a final one unless much higher levels seen.
