Lots more pound cost averaging (i.e. trying to make the average price I’ve bought various share at cheaper as the price has been dropping) of PUB, OCDO, BPTY, XMCX, HSX, HSBA, BPI, HWDN, LOG and SGP.
I hope the term “pound cost averaging” doesn’t haunt me.
For the next few days my posts will probably consist of a summary post at the end of the trading day. I’m going to be making A LOT of trades this week, and I don’t really have time to detail them all (and you probably don’t have time to read about them all).
So today I made 12 trades in the likes of St James’s Place (STJ), AstraZeneca (AZN), Halfords (HFD), HSBC (HSBA), Pennon (PNN) and Cineworld (CINE).
More to come tomorrow, no doubt.
