Thursday update -

Unite (second trade) closed on TSL for +0.5r.
Gamma Communications hit TSL for -0.5r. Announcement not due until 07/09 so second buy order entered later in the day.
Halfords buy order scrubbed - order placed in error - this isn't actually in a nice consistent uptrend.

Safestore still running.

Thursday update -

Emis and Computacentre both had announcements today, both hit their SL's. Both were helped by the trailing stop so the loss per trade was half what it could otherwise have been (if price had continued falling that is).

New buy orders set for -
Sanne (announcement 14/09)
Restaurant Group (15/09)

Spire Healthcare (announcement today) still running.

Friday update -

Spire Healthcare hit trailing stop.
Due to use of trailing stops, the last 3 trades closed represent a total loss of1.5r instead of 3r, so I guess I "saved" half the capital risked.

Buy order for Sthree added.

Nothing running over weekend.

Cancelled buy order for Restaurant Group - worsening TA means no longer a clear and current uptrend).

Monday update -

Sthree buy order triggered but stopped out. Again, this was a 0.5r loss owing to the use of a trailing stop.

Buy order for Galliford Try triggered.

Buy order for Circassia added (announcement due 16/09).

Thursday update -

Circassia and Kier both triggered and both quickly stopped out. Big outside bars in both cases, hard to contend with these, and the objective is not necessarily to be not stopped out....
Now I look at them both show pretty flat price action for a few weeks. Maybe shoulda coulda put entry price higher....

I will add a buy order for Oxford Biomedica (announcement due 22/09) over the weekend or Monday am, margin permitting.

Thursday update -

Add buy order for United Utilities (I've set this one quite a lot higher than the current price action zone, as price has been weak lately).

Friday update -

Manually closed Galliford Try, its been running a week since its announcement and showing a lack of momentum.

I'm watching the United Utilities buy closely - price has to dramatically recover or I won't want to be in this on the 28th.
