I'm considering moving my personal pension into a SIPP for lower charges and more control. It will be mostly a shared based pension but may have some funds, mostly UK but may have some US shares. Looking at Interactive Investor, fees seem to be low, does anyone know which banks II hold funds in? I currently have an ISA/Share account with HL but don't want…

With some talk about recession at the moment I thinking of doing a portfolio of 20 shares and see how it performs. Any suggestions for shares to include would be welcome. My choices so far are: H & T (LON:HAT), National Grid (LON:NG.), Poundland (LON:PLND), Dee Valley (LON:DVWA), Fyffes (LON:FFY), McBride (LON:MCB), Novae (LON:NVA), Charles Taylor (LON:CTR), Fairpoint (LON:FRP), SkyePharma (LON:SKP), GlaxoSmithKline (LON:GSK), Begbies Traynor…

Anyone picked up any bargain shares in the sales? I have bought: Trakm8 Holdings (LON:TRAK), John Wood (LON:WG.) Next (LON:NXT)

I'm considering investing in gold but not sure of the best way to do it. I don't want to have the actual gold in my possession. Can anyone advise the best ways to invest? I have come across Gold Bullion Securities which I may be able to hold in my ISA, anyone invested in them?

I thought that maybe the case but I don't really see why.

Out of interest why does Royal Dutch Shell (LON:RDSB) not appear in the Superstocks style list or the top QMV list? It has a SR of 99 and is a Superstock.

You can buy Super Stocks but at the moment there are a lot of cyclical shares, quite a few are housebuilders, in the top 10, then you have a fair few "foreign" shares in the next 10. To be honest at the moment I don't fancy buying many of them. My feeling is my superstocks performance has been pretty mixed, my High Flyers have done…

Yes but you can just go to Ranks, top of this screen then click on styles then select which style you want and they will appear.

How is this calculated? is it on a daily basis? Some shares change styles almost daily, I have seen one have 3 different styles in 3 days. My most successful share has been a Momentum Trap probably most of the time and sometimes a High Flyer, it usually does better when it's a Momentum Trap.
