    Another interesting day coming up for the Australian Market.

    A good rise yesterday but we should see a screamer today.

    Why do I have this mental picture of Steve Navra wandering around with a big smile on his face?

    Any ideas on how they've fared for the last two weeks?

    Was the rise we had rexcently enough for the fund to have sold down again and be cashed up for today?

    Can it trade such a short term of volatility over a few days?

    Yup, it even trades intra-day price movements - I asked Steve about that once.

    So if you see a V shaped intra-day share chart (sharply down followed by sharply up again the same day), then you should smile if you have funds in NavraInvest :D

    Cool - because as of Tuesday this week 53% of my share portfolio is via Navra!

    I finally timed a buy well I think!

    Trying to time entry into Navra is kind of Random isnt it :) nicely done though.

    I would love to see some sort of "on the run" distribution calculation, and see how the navra system reacts to every peak and trough of the ASX.

    how do I turn those ups and downs into some kind of ball park distribution figure?

    You wait until about the end of the quarter!

    Honestly, it really is too difficult (even for NavraInvest) to predict the distribution less than half way through the quarter ... there are a lot of things that can impact on the distribution (eg. realised capital losses will decrease the distribution amount !!!!).
