Today I closed out my spread bet in Barratt developments as my exit criteria were met. It meant exiting at a loss of around £6 which was trickier than using a stop to exit the trade but I’m quite proud that I thought very little about it as soon as I seen the signal to exit. I promptly opened a short spread bet in Barratt developments as the exit criteria is also a signal to go short. I’m basically trying an experiment. As this is one of Vince Stanziones strategies I can’t reveal the entry and exit signals but what I am trying to do here is always be in and wait until a trend develops. It may end up whiping me out before a good enough trend comes along, hopefully not. Still the stakes are small enough that I can trial it without losing sleep. I for one will be interested to see how it pans out. As always I’ll keep you up to date with how things are progressing.


Today is a short post as I don’t have a lot of time. Hopefully as the week progresses I’ll get some time to look for new trades and write some better spread betting blog entries.


Until next time,
