    Guys,
    Over the course of this year I have developed another obsession (on top of my property obsession) - shares and managed funds.
    This is a nasty affliction - I find myself continually watching the shares prices of the Navra "portfolio", via my commsec account. I have also set up a Westpac broking account to be used with my BT Margin Loan account.
    Whats worse I am now starting to margin loan against those gains and buy other shares on my own :eek: - so far with mixed success.
    At last Navra's rental reality (when applied to shares) I am beginning to comprehend. I even have my lovely wife starting to understand (and pick) the charts. :D .
    Does anyone else here suffer from the same obsession ?? :eek: :eek:

    Perky,

    Trading is a VERY additive business...
    If you get good results, you will trade as long as your brain is working !!.
    G.T.
    :cool:

    Perky,

    Me too, but not to the same degree as yourself fortunately! I check the ASX for the ASX200 movements daily, but mostly because I'm finally about to get my funds into Navra Retail. Daily movements of +/- a percent would be affecting my unit cost.

    How are you tracking the daily Navra unit cost in Comsec? I've got a Comsec account so could do likewise.

    Cheers,
    Michael

    I have two portfolios set up with the 25 odd shares that Navra is trading in. Called them Nav1 and Nav2. Easier to watch the movements that way - though not as good as if you were in the office there with Steve :)

    Yes, I'm sure the guys who monitor the web surfing at work must be wondering what is this www.navrainest.com.au that keeps getting hits throughout the day from my account. :)

    Maybe they'll be curious enough to take a look for themselves and even more funds will start to flow in.
