INVESTING FOR A RICH RETIREMENT

HUMBUG’S INVESTMENT DIARY 21st SEPTEMBER 2018

FEATURE POINTS

Great British Trade Off portfolio is up £13 on the week.

The portfolio is up 7.6% since April, I’m just 16% invested.

What a difference a week makes. In last weeks report I was intending to top up my £5k holding in the Baillie Gifford American Fund. But the price slipped on the US close and killed the buying signal.

Just as well it did, because the price fell this week and has now fallen below my red line which is the stop loss/take profits point.

I’ll place a selling order over the weekend for action Monday. It’s been a text book trade. Profit of circa £1350 on a £5k investment. 27% ROI.

Green arrow shows entry, red arrow shows pending exit.

Never did get to go sailing, a pothole wrecked the  offside front tyre on my car when it knocked the wheel alignment out. Nothing three days off the road and a large bill couldn’t cure. We live in a third world country where the prats who run it can’t even fix the bloody roads.

Nothing to buy in the coming week and after the sale of the Baillie Gifford American Fund I’ll be 10% invested.
