The A$10k I transferred from my portfolio loan into my IG trading account on the weekend arrived in my IG account today. The markets required for the "12% solution" trades opened at 11:30pm Sydney time and I bought approximately A$6,000 (60%) QQQ and A$4,000 (40%) JNK per the August asset allocation provided in the monthly email I received.
Each month I'll make any required trade(s) to adjust my holdings to the recommended position, although it won't be exactly per the model due to timing of the trades, and the fact that I can only buy a whole number of shares (so there will be a small cash residual balance).
Trades executed for August:
04 Aug 2020 23:35:45 BUY 34 QQQ A$5961.31
04 Aug 2020 23:37:56 BUY 27 JNK A$4024.27
Residual Cash balance: A23.27
Current IG Portfolio:
34 QQQ ProShares UltraPro QQQ (All Sessions)
27 JNK SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF
50 ASIA Betashares Capital Ltd - Asia Technology Tigers Etf
Having this trading portfolio in place will give me something to play with once a month while my major investments in Index Funds within my superannuation sit on 'autopilot' and slowly compound. And the IG 'workspace' display looks quite cool with all the charts and flashing price changes on every 'tick' ;)
