Trade 141 Week Ending 19th July

Trade 141 Week Ending 19th July

That was the Week What Happened? Almost Nothing Apologies I will try to source VFTSE or an equivalent to give at least a flavour of market sentiment. It requires no Nobel prize to see that the market is not volatile. However-don’t you just love it when financial commentators talk about how volatile it’s been? Faisal […]

Trade 138 Week Ending 28June

Trade 138 Week Ending 28June

That Was The Week FTSE barely moved- up 18 and intraday moves ±0.5%. So, indecision is the order of the day but we may see some crazy next week. Trumpenomics tend to say one thing and then reverse. We were told that 5 key PMI indexes in the US were hitting lows not seen for 10 […]

Trade 136 Week ending 14 June

That Was The Week We saw FTSE rise again to the dizzying height of 7420, and back down to reality at 7345. So next week is expiry week and personal positions need the old ‘F’ down to 7300. We close out our Jun expiry cycle trades and show >10% profit on the month. This is a […]

Trade 135 Week Ending 7June

That Was The Week FTSE Up almost 2.5% But,……………………………     SPX up 4.4% based on rumours of the FED softening and cutting rates. I think personally that they wanted to show how good things are when the commander-in-chief is out of the US! Actually bad news is good news. Good news is good news. Indifferent news is, […]

Trade134 Week Ending 31May

That Was The Week: So, we saw some more down moves, and perhaps a little more worrying, the US bond yields tumbling. Bond buyers are out in force. Risk off, as they say. Our week was shortened with public holidays as the month of May played the predictable role- ‘Sell in May’ a 3.46% decline […]

Trade127- That Was The Week Ending 12 April- Nobrexit Day 2

That Was The week We watched as more verbage gushed from the mouths of our glorious leaders. We remain in the EU. Then, the market shows its utter contempt by going……….. nowhere.  We see volatility is crushed virtually to a single digit once again. Central banks are ensuring the smooth running of markets. However, we […]

Trade 123 Week Ending 15March

Trade 123 Week Ending 15March

That Was The Week We noted that Brexit hysteria was conspicuous by its absence. In fact the market was positively serene. So, 5 consecutive up days, up 1.74% and on the week the £sterling is up 2.16%. Don’t worry, be happy. Thus, bewildered does not even come close to the Brexit sentiment, and this trader is sidelined […]

Trade113 Week Ending 04Jan2019

Up 3% on the week- nobody saw that coming, but we don’t mind.Vol dropping massively,as you’d expect. Did I take advantage at 45DTE on Wednesday? Not saying-ok, I missed out! Grrrrrrr New Year, Same Old Crazy Here we are in 2019, and we are sure all our readers are not only solvent, but profitable. So […]

Trade110 Week ending 14December2018

Up For The Week- Didn’t Feel Like It Despite a rock solid time tested number of strategies and managed risk, I still get bouts of ‘uncomfortable concern’. I have to remind myself how many times I’ve been in trades and made  ££££££££, when things looked ugly. February and September this year were big drops, but […]

Trade 107 Week Ending 23 November

Trade 107 Week Ending 23 November

Big Ups After Big Downs, Then Up….and Down I was surprised by the down move on Tuesday- matched by Wednesday’s bonkers rise. GBPUSD has been up and down, quite predictably. Dismally missing out this week, failing to add to my positions. I took in a credit of 24 last week and for more of the […]
