Share trading

[Ha. So this is where this one got to. Needless to say, I didn't manage another.]

I think I'm going to try to keep a log of my stock / share / bond trading. And the various random and silly reasons I do it. I wish I'd done this at the start.



06/02/2012 B304830991 iShares MSCI North America (£2k) - exposure to North America, which looks less troubled than Europe.
03/02/2012 B304686701 iShares plc MSCI Emerging Markets (£2k) - emerging markets for growth. Maybe.
20/01/2012 B302541261 Bought GlaxoSmithKline plc (£2k) - about time to buy something else, I have no Pharma yet, and in these troubled times a solid company looks like a good idea.
05/01/2012 B297870191 Bought Vodafone Group Plc (£2k) - as per GSK, a big company active abroad, and perhaps even doing something useful for the world.


* 06/12/2011 B293833381 Invesco Perpetual Monthly Income Plus (£2k) - generic
* 24/11/2011 B292492111 CSR Plc (£2k) - we were going very cheap, and I don't think we'll collapse
* 18/11/2011 B291384861 iShares MSCI Europe Ex-Uk (£1k) - generic

(to be extended backwards?)
