|Credit Suisse upgrade from under perform share price 770 to neutral and 1150.Not quite as bad as DB but still way off the mark......and slow to realise it!.DD|
|The chart is starting to have the look of a 'head and shoulders' about it. I am not a follow of such patterns preferring metrics over patterns but I try to keep an open mind.|
|"I was always concerned when asked to write something in a bare trust that if a kid grew into a tearaway, like bracke clearly was in his youth, they may just blow the lot on fast cars, women and drink and subsequently rely on charts to make amends."
You'r close uppompeii but you've got it rear about face.
A misspent youth; Oh how I wish! I am now trying to correct this omission albeit somewhat later in life.
I am hoping that charting and the riches I achieve from it will enable me to have a very misspent later life. I can but hope and dream.|
|Thanks Bracke, very interesting and as always much appreciated.|
Lol! Many thanks for your comments on bare trusts. In conclusion, each of the grandchildren are also candidate beneficiaries of a small family discretionary trust, so hopefully this will encourage them to show a bit of financial prudence if they wish to benefit!
As for brackes misspent youth, at least he is now making amends by steering a lot of us through the turbulence of the stock market. Penance indeed!|
|Ian, no that covers it really but the downside is really lack of control and the full access at 18. I was always concerned when asked to write something in a bare trust that if a kid grew into a tearaway, like bracke clearly was in his youth, they may just blow the lot on fast cars, women and drink and subsequently rely on charts to make amends. Retaining control can avoid this and can delay access until they are more mature. Still it quite likely won't come to that in your case and any trust is better than none.|
|No problem ian
uppompeii doesn't get out much so a 'conversation' will be of benefit to him.|
|Ps your grandson sounds much like bracke albeit with good returns! ?|
|Ian, that's excellent and a good decision regarding the trust. Did you consider a flexible one, bare trusts are pretty difficult beasts in the wrong situation?|
|They take it up, they take it down. 1300 or 1100 place your bets!
Good day deadcat
As you can see from the chart below Standard Life has dropped out of the range and is headed for the Median Line (red middle). I suspect it will want to test the previous swing low at the 38.2% fib.
STANDARD LIFE 4 HOURS|
|Same here. Pretty much all of mine is in funds too, maybe I'm more sensible now...or retirement seems a lot closer!|
Can but agree, and I would add to your list fundamentals, guru's TA, gut feeling and patience, measured in years, not days in my case...
However I now have only a few shareholdings, I find mutual funds equally rewarding and less stressful! (Hiss, boo I hear the cries!)|
|It's an established fact that the gut is an autonomous system in its own right and takes action on its own independent but in communication with the brain. Many auto immune diseases like ms could be strongly linked to inflammation in the gut. It's an interesting area of research.I pay a lot of attention to gut feeling.Don't always get it right sadly, for that we need gurus.|
Thanks for this explanation, most interesting|
The first nervous system is the conventional nervous system ie the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system. It has been suggested that the innervation of the gut represents a rather independent system regulating the activity of this organ.
It is mentioned as offering some possible basis for this visceral feeling.|
|'There is one thing you can be certain of. When the upward pressure ceases and the drop commences it will be very unpleasant.'
Thanks for that Bracke, good start to the weekend after AHT rising! Any more thoughts on Standard Life as it seems to be stuck in a small range.|
Thanks as always for your views, much appreciated.|
Ah well I tried but you are determined to have your 'pound of flesh'.
As to the market.....The 'experts' have been talking about a correction for months but it does not arrive.
At the beginning of the year the FED talked about four interest rate increases this year; so far none. Each time they meet to discuss the possibility they find a reason/s not to increase and so it goes on. Even when they do increase it will be minimal and the increases are likely to be very, very gradual.
We now operate in an environment where borrowers charge lenders to loan them money!!! A complete reversal of the norm.
Because of low/negative interest rates savers/investors are pushed towards shares in an attempt to find a reasonable rate of interest.
Barring a Black Swan the charts suggest that the DOW and S&P will make new all time highs.
There is one thing you can be certain of. When the upward pressure ceases and the drop commences it will be very unpleasant.|
Alas no, at 1128 I feel the balance of risk/reward is still not right for me, sub 1000 and I'm definitely interested, provided that the fundamentals of the company have not deteriorated in the interim.
In the meantime I can't help feeling that the market is overdue a correction in the next few months, what do your charts say? I
|Good day ian
"and simply wishes to add on any significant weakness. Who wouldn't?"
That would depend on the reason for weakness but your point is taken.
As you will have read LAIRD is less avaricious than yourself. Could you see your way clear to modifying your buying intentions and making an interim purchase at 1128?|
Lol! It is worth mentioning that the aforementioned poster still retains a core holding, and simply wishes to add on any significant weakness. Who wouldn't?|
|Buying @ 900 good
selling @ 900 bad.
|It closed at 1128 on 20 July and gaped up from there.
The nearest it got to filling the gap was 1141 on 04 August.
So you'r thinking it will drop back to 1128, could be worse. There is another poster, who shall remain nameless, who has stated he would not be averse to buying at 900!!|
