I bought £200 of Yell.com shares in my sipp last month as a long term punt @ 5.5p a share as I noticed off the charts they have bounced twice off 5p this year. Cost £9.50 for the transaction with Hargreaves Landsdown so was expecting a bit of a wait to cover that and the bid spread too.

Noticed yesterday Yell announced a tie up with Microsoft for online advertising and checked the sipp, Yell holding is now up 88% in 3 weeks!

I tell you study in forex charts for double / tripple bottoms translates to share line charts just as easily.

If these get back to £2 - £3 a share in the next 23 years will be a nice addition to the pension pot, if they go bust I lose £200 now which will be like losing £20 by the time I retire!

Hi Rob,

I really enjoyed 'The Naked Trader 2'

He keeps it nice and simple...but very effective.

Buy the book or check out his website
