Updown Performance : July up 5.6%

Practice invest

My Updown account was up 5.6% in July 2010 but  the S&P 500 was up 6.9%.  I was beat by the index by 1.3% this past month.

In 2010 I'm up 5.6% and the S&P 500 is up 0.4%.   So I'm a full 5% ahead of the index for the year to date.

Since starting in March 2008 I'm up 8.4% while the S&P 500 is down 17.2%.

I didn't make any trades last month.   However I had a stake in FRE which was delisted which forced a sale  at $0.34.   I had bought it at $1.20 with the speculation that it would go up a bit.   That didn't work out too well.
