I'll stick for my £11 for now, says he trying not to be greedy. As for EZJ, yes, I can see some more downside before it recovers too but thanks for the opinion. Bon soirée! Topiceltopicel
Topicel "So if it drops below the SMA by default, as you put it, we have a false buy signal created in effect?" ============================================================================= Not necessarily. It maybe that 'appearing' above the Daily SMA 200 is enough to release it. Yes I know that seems ridiculous but who said that the market is logical! I do watch others but I have watched AHT the longest and have more experience of it. Ref Easyjet It's managed to hold at the August low but don't be surprised if it wants to test the January low at 1521.bracke
So, half yearly results up and coming. This time last year was an 'expectations beat' on strong growth, expansion of outlets and currency translation. Be interesting to see if there's more buying ahead of the announcement. They are on a few pundits radars as usual.broadwood
So if it drops below the SMA by default, as you put it, we have a false buy signal created in effect? Thanks for your input though Bracke, whichever way it goes now it has been most instructive. Do you watch the movements of any others as closely? I have dabbled in EZJ of late and after yesterday tempted to re-enter there for instance but have been impressed with your calls in AHT so any others with similar movements would be tempting. Always depending on whether I understand the company/sector of course. Wary of techs! Topiceltopicel
Good day Topicel "Prepared to jettison at 1068 if we go back there, would that be about right Bracke?" ============================================================================== 1068 is the gap to fill. It has risen back to the Daily SMA 200 at 1057 which once again is resisting. The Daily SMA 200 is in decline. It is possible that the share price will 'rise' above the Daily SMA 200 by default ie. the SMA will drop below the share price Lets see if the sellers appear again.bracke
Is this starting to form a nice cup..........handle to test highs at around 1200 (new year) still to come?DDdiscodave4
All about George and his major house building programme announcement this morning. Heavily flagged but the actual details may well see AHT and sector rise further depending on any added extras not yet leaked. Prepared to jettison at 1068 if we go back there, would that be about right Bracke? Topiceltopicel
One gap filled.bracke
2flat Those holding shares will be able to sell via their brokers. One assumes that they will only sell if they will make a profit or are fearful that the share price will drop further. Those holding long trades simply cover.bracke
Or at least exit safely. Being one of those stubborn long-only types with a 'target' I will be one of those many holders who will not be taking profits while the momentum is north and the general market sentiment towards AHT is so strong. Not to mention previous quarter results likely to be as good at least within weeks, and more dividends too. The games are too technical for me but clearly the likes of Bracke can make money from it, so fair play. Topiceltopicel
bracke The shorters need profit takers to sell . what I am saying there will be insufficient profit taker to allow the shorters to exit. Cheers2flatpack
2flat I am a little confused. By profit takers I am referring to those who hold the shares and sell them plus those who had long trades and sell them. I am not suggesting that they are shorting merely selling what they currently hold.bracke
bracke I agree, what I am trying to say is I cannot see the profit takers jumping in with sufficient numbers to give them the opportunity to exit .If it is longer term it would have made more sense to me to short at result when the S\P is at a peak . Cheers2flatpack
2flat Surely you ascertain a target and cover the short when the target is reached or circumstances dictate. Certainly you need to drive the share price below the level at which you short which should be no problem if you have the selling power.bracke
bracke If you are short it easy to exit; you buy. . When you buy it will have an effect on the price so you need to have the price well below your target or a selling frenzy going on . cheers2flatpack
2flat If you are short it easy to exit; you buy. If you have the 'clout' to drive the share price down and your timing is good you set the ball in motion and others will follow your lead ie. profit takers. At a suitable point and with the knowledge that the results will not disappoint you cover your short, the rise commences and the results drive it on. I don't know about sub 1000 but 1000 is a likely destination.bracke
The last shorting took place on or before 12.11.15 when the S\P was 1000 to 1020p. This makes me wonder how low do they expect the S\P to go. My logic tells me they are looking for a sub 1000p, but how far below and will it be before results or after? I cannot find anyone who does not expect results to be good, interested if anyone has heard different. There seems to be a concerted effort to drive the price down today ,perhaps they hope to be able to control the price during the low trade days over thanksgiving. but they still need an exit strategy. I watch with interest. Cheers2flatpack
Good day Topicel Each time the share price gets to the Daily SMA 200 and the gap sellers take over. I suspect it will eventually break through but whether it will retrace first I know not.bracke
I see that Bracke, and 1068 seems to be the make or break line. You are most convincing with your movement analysis here, I must say. Maybe my finger in the air £11 in November, OK, early-mid November wasn't quite so considered but sometimes plain old long gets there in the end, if a little late by a couple of weeks or so! Mind you, still 35p to go of course to be very happy... Topiceltopicel
For the third successive trading day it is being resisted at the Daily SMA 200.bracke
What a week!! Not an ashtead Friday but it will do me. Here's hoping it carries on in the same vein. I know snowball and hell come to mind. Have a good weekend one and all. cheers2flatpack
What chance a quick spike up on Monday to 1068 to fill the gap?bracke
Nice finish for AHT in what seems to have been a pretty ropey day for the market. 2FP, looks like you got your timing right, well done! bracke, as always thanks for all your analysis this week, much appreciated as always!ianwwwhite
Good day Disco Maybe Santa will oblige.bracke
Thanks Bracke, would prefer a push up please.DDdiscodave4
