Wobbly bridges, marching bands, traffic jams and 21st centruy marxism....vol.2
Following on from my post a couple of months ago about my "charitable hedge fund" - I'm pleased to report we started trading yesterday.
We've begun opening positions at very low levels - and it will probably take at least 6 months to a year to build up a trading record, iron out practical issues and convince me that the theory holds weight in the real world - but we've begun - a small hop in the dark has been made.
Watch this space for more details. If anyone has a view as to which charity should benefit from the first chunk of cash if / when it comes - drop me a line.
And if anyone else was wondering - as of a couple of minutes ago - we were aroud 30 points up.....!
