I opened a FTSE 100 long position at 7251.8 not long after the previous blog post as the market dropped. I closed that long this morning at 7420 prior to the markets opening. This tweet shows the entry and exit dates.

The change in trend and subsequent move up was quicker than I was expecting so no opportunity to add to that initial position, but I'm very happy with that profit in only five trading days.


Finally, here are my actual percentage gains over the last 5 years and this year to 1st November 2019, applied to a fictional starting fund (these do not represent my own invested funds) to demonstrate the power of being patient and compounding returns.
