Quick Global Trader update
It’s been a while since I did a blog post about my Global Trader share trading experience. But if you have follow me on Twitter, you would have seen some of the trades I have been making.
I have been using the very cool tool that GT247 offer, that I have spoken about before, called “The Wire“. Basically it is a realtime stream, very similar to twitter, that shows you the live trades that other people on the platform have made. This is interesting to watch when there is a currency fluctuation or something, as it flies by.
I have also been playing around in the FREE simulated trading platform, making my own trades and buying and selling with no worries. I am 10% on the simulated platform, but made some interesting calls.
A very interesting call we made this week was Massmart. As you may have heard the sale of 51% of Massmart to Walmart, was approved earlier this week. The share shot up for a bit, and left us in the clear for a while. Checking back today, I see it is a little down, but not too concerning.
Even though my GT247 time is almost up, I will most definitely be keeping an eye on the Stock Markets, but also on the currencies, which really seem to be pretty volatile. As soon as I have wrapped up, I will do a full blog post of my trades so you can see how it all went.
