think-it-thru started this thread I got stopped out on my Premier Foods short postion for a loss today.
I might need to have smaller positions and looser stops, more study needed.
If anybody has any words of advice or otherwise, I am thick skinned! I would appreciate any feedback.
Current P/L £2.95
Have a great weekend everybody!

think-it-thru started this thread Upon studying some of my stopped out positions, I had shorted some shares who's price was falling but the sector they were was rising and sometimes they had rising profits. I will check deeper in future.
I forgot to mention , yesterday my Game Group short order got filled at 67.26, its in a slight loss at the minute.
However the portfolio is up.
Current P/L £43.60
Have a great weekend everybody!

think-it-thru started this thread Good morning everyone Current P/L £49.56
This will change however as i will be rolling some positions tomorrow so will be paying some more spread.
Can anyone tell me whether its best to use a forward contract or a rolling spread?

Depends how long you want to hold your positions really.

It's impossible to know how long you'll be in though really, guess the best thing to do is have a look and see which would have been better, and go with that, and continue to review until it's obvious.
