Looking Back at June #Brexit

@TraderTim5BKG, FTSE, Investing, NXT0 Comments

Well, we say goodbye to June! This month has been the first month not to make a profit, unfortunately made a loss. I made a loss of £1801.04 this month.

You can check out the trading diary for more info. When trading, it’s important to keep this things in perspective. … Read More

Where Will We Go From Here? #Brexit

@TraderTim5BKG, FTSE, Investing, NXT0 Comments

It’s been a few days since I posted, but a lot has happened. We’ve officially voted to leave the EU. The Prime Minister has announced his resignation. Scotland may have a second referendum on independence. Jeremy Corbyn looks uncertain to remain as leader of the Labour party. The country, which is the focal point of the world’s news, looks a shambles. At the moment, politics is in turmoil and with no leader to navigate us out of it – things … Read More

Portfolio 2.0: First Investment Made

@TraderTim5EZJ, Investing0 Comments

Quick Trading Update A quick update on a couple of trades that closed yesterday before we jump in. If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen that both the Astrazeneca and Sports Direct trade that were open have now closed. Astrazeneca hit its stop-loss. The price rose to just above 4,100p after which it fell back down to close the day at 4,054 – a little frustrating. I closed the Sports Direct trade myself. I watched Mike Ashley … Read More

Donate to Support International Children’s Day

@TraderTim5Charity, Donation, Investing, Trading0 Comments

The third month in and we have another profitable month! This month was a bit of a close call, but the last few days paid off. It wasn’t a month for the profitable trade percentage – 77% of the trades closed this month lost money (out of 9 trades). However, two trades, Apple and Cloudtag, managed to balance the books. For May, we made a profit of £3246.04, which is pretty impressive given only 23% of trades were profitable. Also, … Read More

The second month into the blog and we have had a second profitable month! Naturally, that means 10% of those profits will be going to a charitable cause. This month amassed a very respectable £3092.70 in trading profits. Not bad for a bit of part-time trading! April raised a respectable £309.27 and when gift-aided makes a massive £386.60 to be given to a very worthy charity! Deaf Awareness Week (2 May – 8 May) Today is the first day of … Read More

Cash is king – sell up and start again!

@TraderTim5AIM, Bearish, FTSE, Investing, Summer, Trading0 Comments

Am I really selling all the shares I own? Yes, yes I am. Why? Well, let me explain. Bearish on the Summer As previous posts have indicated, I am pretty bearish about the forthcoming summer. We are heading into May, which calls for the market adage “Sell in May, come back St. Legers day” highlighting the notion that UK markets tend to underperform in the summer months. With the EU referendum approaching, you’d think that this is only going to … Read More
