thanks, i made a not in my calendar, i plan to do something with my SOL ssf's before then, but am still looking as it seems to do quite well now, i don't want to loose out, but also want to avoid a drop in price if they get taxed in the budget speach... maybe even make something by selling short on the day! what are your thoughts?

I see that currently SSL(Sasol on NYSE) is trading up just over 1%, other than that I have no position on SOL currently, so no real views.

The stop loss system on SSFs work with bids and offers. You can easily set a stop loss at 13:50 and let SFM stop you out should the news be bad. Maybe sell some of your SSFs if you are worried and let the stop loss handle the rest.

That sounds like a plan, i just hope the drop will not be a sudden, huge one!
