Sell GOLD both portfolios
No buys, market switch is off.

Don't know if it means anything, but will soon find out..

Buys/Sells for Mon 2014-03-23

P Hybrid Sell IPL
P Runner Sell TLS
No buys, my market switch is off.

 I see on a couple of well known, & reputable Australian trading sites and forums that sell commercial trading systems, some users are in large drawdowns & some are questioning whether to continue trading or not.
I find the fact that my 2 portfolios have recently made new equity highs to be extremely encouraging.

Open positions 2014-03-08


New equity highs for both portfolios again, & now I'm including dividends that's helping too.
The "Runner" portfolio now has 12 positions, so that's some compensation for using fixed sum & not using a more efficient form of money management.
I think the optimum number of positions would be between 15 & 20, but initially that's simply not an option when starting the portfolio with limited capital & relatively high brokerage rates.

Buys/Sells for 2014-03-03

No Sells
Buy TPM both portfolios Mon at the open
I was torn between playing it safe this week & buying WOW or risking more on the position with TPM.
That"s the disadvantage of fixed position size, you can't adjust the position risk by varying size.
I will be addressing this shortcoming in my new daily system which I am currently forward testing.

New equity highs for both portfolios, dividends starting to come in, most due in March.
I'm forward testing a new daily system in the ASX share trading game
Registrations are still open, be in, it's a great learning tool.
