Updown Performance : March up 2%

Practice invest

My Updown account was UP 2.0% in March 2011.    The S&P 500 was down 0.1% in the same time.    I beat the index this month.

After being beat in Jan. and Feb. I'm still down versus the index for the year.    For 2011 so far I'm 2.3% behind the S&P 500.   My portfolio is up 2.5% for the year and the index is up 4.9%

Almost half of my assets in Updown are in cash.   If I was fully invested in my portfolio then my performance would be about double and closer to on par with S&P 500 for the year.

I didn't do to much trading this month. 

Trading activity in March :

Sold some of my Verizon at $38 which is 23% more than I paid in Jan. '10.
Sold some Pfizer at $19.80 or 18% more than I bought in Apr. '10.

I also Bought ABT at $48.27
