About Me:

My Stockopedia screen name is a reference to the 1969 Monty Python sketch about a disillusioned charted accountant who wanted to become a lion tamer. I suspect many of us have had moments like this. Such moments were my motivation to take control and retire early. This is something I was able to do in 2016, when I quit my job. Since then I've been living from the proceeds of my investments, most of which are stock based.

Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I invest with... <£1m
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
When I walk down the street, my aim is to avoid stepping in any dog-mess. My investing strategy is the same.

"also defaults to the first folio all the time, before you just go folio and then pick the one you want to look at" I found you can re-order the portfolios on the menu (drag & drop). This way you can chose your main portfolio as the default, although I agree a one-click on an expanding menu would be better.

Hi Ed From my point of view, my heart and mind is already won. However until you've had time to release more functionality on the new site I can personally only use it as a preview of what's coming. Keep up the great work, I'm looking forward to adopting it full time as soon as its ready. Incidently, I thought the roadmap & "what's new"…

I can't make "pinch & zoom" work on the new mobile site on my phone. I've tried desktop and mobile rendering modes. Anyone got a solution? Meanwhile I'm using the new site on the desktop and the old site on my phone. Shame, I wanted to adopt the new site on both really, but as I can't zoom out to see enough columns at a…
