How I am trading Ukraine

I increased my positions in coal, shipping and oil.

I bought more exposure to oil. I increased my position in AkerBP. The share is down significantly in last few weeks. Scandinavian investors sold their AkerBP shares to maker a room in their portfolio for Var Energy IPO, that started trading last week. This morning AkerBP was trading 275 NOK, which is a price it traded in September 21, at much lower oil prices. It should re-rate from the Var rebalancing sell off,

I bought coal companies JSW and Thungela (TGA), a spin off from Anglo. Both are cheap. If there is a lower supplies by Russian gas, these companies should benefit as coal would return as a fuel for electricity.

I also bought Sibanye SBSW – a South African Palladium producer. The idea behind is simple. Russia produces 41% of world Palladium. I assume EU will implement sanctions against Russia. I hope the sanctions will be finally tough. Russia will implement response sanctions against EU. Russian Palladium export ban could be a possible sanction candidate. IN that case Palladium would skyrocket. So would this stock.
