Good day Disco I pay little attention to illiquid stocks for obvious reasons but as far as I am aware the general principle to gap filling applies ie. to give an opportunity to sell or buy at the gap price. The problem with illiquid shares is that they are slow moving, shares often held by a few holders and easy to manipulate.

June unless they can find an excuse not to. Problem is whenever the probability for an increase occurs the market is driven down and the FED backs off. The market has become addicted to cheap money.

More US record home sales announced today. Highest in a decade. Coupled with reducing unemployment figures, it looks as though the 'data dependant' Fed will have to take notice. This month or next?

US new home sales rocketed to an eight year high yesterday. As AHT rent construction equipment to a wide customer range, one would imagine this news might keep the pot bubbling for a while. The Dow/S&P had a very good day yesterday - these markets seemingly now looking forward to an interest rate rise from the Fed rather than anticipating it with horror.

Good day binliners I don't analyse charts by 'shapes' but by price action, although I am aware of them From my understanding of 'cup & handle' I don't think it is a cup and handle. The cup which I think you are referring to has a pointed base, a lopsided lip and a handle lower than the base. I consider that it's in a rising channel from the low at 750 with resistances along the way and with the current target at 1000.

I'd like to ask 'our' elite guru if the chart could be in a cup and handle formation or just returning to a rising channel? Or is it too soon to tell Bracke?

Good day 2flat "bracke are you thinking about the 1100 and 1200 resistances yet." ================================================================== No. Need to see how it deals with 1000 first.

2flatpack Now that the 'all clear' has sounded, I feel that it is safe to comment without fear of the 'jonah' effect kicking in..... Well done fp2, good call on the 'Ashtead Friday' as you foresaw, it came good in the end with a healthy rise to end above brackes 955/960 key level. A great end to a great week!

Is this a good old fashioned Ashtead Friday I see before me. bracke are you thinking about the 1100 and 1200 resistances yet. I note we have just moved above the 200day sma which in previous years is where I would have been buying with any cash I could beg borrow or steal what a differance a hedge fund makes. Sorry about the gibberish guys but it seems a lifetime since we have had a week of good news. Cheers

amaretto Holders, which includes me, will be hoping that 1407 will hold. I am not very confident that it will. The price action suggests that it may decide to drop further to 1387 and maybe on to 1360. It may look to retrace up before dropping further. If it does then 1440, if it gets that far, is likely to resist.

Time for a chart/price action review. The share price had two good days on Tuesday and Wednesday having risen approx 85 points but we chart readers are not interested in such mundane matters as 'points' its the chart and price action that excites. The key move was the break above resistance at 930 and so far the hold above it. It is also significant that the share price has retraced to just above the 50% fib from the previous swing high to the following swing low. The target is the obvious one ie. 1000 apart from the psychological aspect it is also the next fib and the Upper Parallel of the Mod Schiff. Ideally the share price will hold above the 50% fib but the probability is for a retrace before a further rise. Such a retrace becomes a problem if previous resistance fails to become support and allows the share price to drop below 930.

2flatpack & bracke As always I find that we are all pretty much in agreement, thanks for your views. In the meantime AHT seems to be fighting hard to hang on to recent gains this morning, although I get the impression that we are swimming against the tide, and I have a feeling that one of brackes resistance points was around 9.65ish?

Ian I always thought the target price was for a 12 month period, but as you say its left unsaid. Commenting on your 12&3 if you will allow me to join in. 1 I agree with, BUT These hedge funds are so large ( most of their backers clouded in mystery) they are able to attack the strongest of companies with impunity, damaging them in the process. The II's who I would expect to defend their investments by purchasing shares at the depressed price, seem to join in. Maybe this is professional courtesy sharks don't eat sharks . 2&3 I also agree with But The hedge funds tend to use natural market downturns or black swan events to trigger and enhance their attacks . Then we have the analysts reports. YES . This is the second company I have had an interest in that has been subjected to a consented shorting attack.The first was IQE it was certainly damaged but hopefully it is recovering. I think AHT has little to fear and hopefully the worst is over, Cheers

^ a bit like a broker forecast then Ian?! Presumably, in accordance with your No. 2, the recent moves in AHT are driven by interest rate hike sentiment Stateside being back on the agenda? Although I could be mistaken! Topicel
