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

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

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 […]

Trade132 Week Ending 17May

That Was The Week On a personal level I had to make a few trade exits. Whilst I was aiming to get the 100 max on each, I was happy to settle for 23 for a put trade and 14 for a call trade. However max profit for me was at 7150 and 7450, so […]

Trade 128 Week Ending Friday the 19th.............

Trade 128 Week Ending Friday the 19th………….

That Week in Pictures- Market flat Vol decreasing. Expiry week was a damp squib, but that’s what we have come to expect. Traders know volumes are not terrible but not exactly setting the pulse racing. A sobering thought- those Extinction Rebellion protesters may know Friends of the Earth started 50 years ago. A powerful lobby […]

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 […]

Trade122 Week ending 08March

That Was The Week- Not Much To Endear One To FTSE So…the market drops 3 points but the last 2 down days saw volatility shrink.  We understand this goes against perceived wisdom. Same as stock market versus political turmoil /bond yields/ currencies/ commodities/ gold/ CNBC. So,are there any reliable metrics that can give us clue? Traders […]
