These Markets are truly remarkable - it seems like whatever happens they just keep going up. Readers of my Charts stuff, Tweets, Website Trades etc. might have seen I put a Small Short on the S&P500 on Monday Night Last Week as it looked really poised to drop back a bit - but in the event it has actually been flirting with my Stoploss and at the Close on Friday it was still a fraction below - I will look at this Chart etc. in due course. I was thinking about my Shorts earlier this afternoon and I am of a view that the best approach is to open fairly Small Shorts initially and then if they go my way to increase them and ‘Push the Position’.
Last week my Overall Portfolio (including the Overseas Unit Trusts but not the Income Portfolio) was down 0.15%, which is really just ‘Noise’ in the bigger scheme of things and I am still right up at the All Time Highs although I still am slightly below the High Point the Portfolio hit back in May - wasted Summer or what ?!!
