Trader Portfolios

The Trader Portfolio is an unaudited paper fund which is run in the Techinvest Newsletter to illustrate the dynamics of managing an active technology portfolio. No new share goes into the portfolio until after it has been rated as a New Buy in an issue of Techinvest. After that, the Trader Portfolio can act like any subscriber, using its judgement to buy, hold or sell in accordance with the subsequent price movements and news flow within the sector.

This page will be updated periodically. See the most recent edition of the Techinvest Newsletter for the latest Trader Portfolio.
