One upshot of this is that some ‘normality’ is being returned with regards to the US Markets and what time they Open and Close - in theory they should Open at 2.30pm BST and Close at 9pm. After the drops on Friday maybe it would be better if they just stayed shut !!
Blimey, that was a painful one - after being nicely in positive territory for 2018 so far I got a right kicking last week and my Portfolio ended up down 3.5% on the Week and this means that I am now down 2% on my Portfolio for 2018 - not a situation I like at all. The hit last week was exacerbated particularly by Sprue Aegis SPRP coming out with the News on Friday that BRK has terminated their Agreement early and that SPRP could get stuck with some Stock - there is a lack of clarity on the impact but it whacked the Stock hard and it is a big Position for me. Annoying, but I am not going to panic as the move to new Suppliers is the key to a much improved performance for SPRP but it is frustrating that yet another hurdle has been placed in their way.
