Stop/ losses

Recommended Posts

With Trump announcing decision; on Mexican tariffs last night, FTSE likely to rise steeply on Monday 

Am short on 7333 is it worth setting a stop loss at (say) 7350 over the weekend, or will just sail through?

If it was me i would considering hedge using weekend FTSE

But if it was me i had probably used a guaranteed stop over the weekend with this Mexican thing going on 

Worst case scenario? a gap up when futures reopen and then down to close the gap?

I see the weekend ftse is only 20 points up after the close, the markets did hear about the tariff introduction being delayed earlier in the afternoon but it didn't become official so to speak till after close. It first appeared on twitter immediately after the NFP release and caused that kick back up on the indices charts.

Difficult to know how the chart will play out, certainly keep an eye on the ftse weekend chart and consider @Kodiak's suggestion of a hedge. Putting an order in now won't be action'd til the open and if there is a gap there will be slippage as you suspect.

    • @Foxy No you cant just trade anything, its licenced, i believe there are 61 pairs/markets that the program can trade in. Each Pair has a retail price of $3300inc but i never paid that, i got my initial 5 pairs for $5500. For my $15K i got another 20 pairs, this time including Gold, and a couple of Index's.
    • If one was unsure about investing in specific funds and trusts then they could consider constructing an ETF portfolio based on these technology themes. The potential is there for higher returns on specialist funds and trusts due to stock picking and capital allocation strategies. However, an ETF, will be a lower cost option but not necessarily a better performing one.
    • Now I have openly shared that I have invested in Bitcoin via XBT Provider One in the SEK (Swedish Krona) currency as I am not sure what the future for the Euro holds with Brexit uncertainty and what any hard Brexit implications may be for other EU Member States. However, you can invest in this in EUR currency too. The same applies for in Ether as well. It now offers ETN's for XRP and Litecoin.  There is also the Grayscale Bitcoin Investment Trust which is trading at a premium but if Bitcoin does well then this too could flourish for investors. This product is more for investing in Bitcoin rather than trading it. It presents a great way for an someone to gain exposure to Bitcoin in their portfolio without having to either physically acquire it and opening a Crypto Wallet, etc. or trading it. I believe nearly 3/4 of the demand from investors investing in this trust is from institutional investors including hedge funds based on the first quarter of 2019.
