Still short FTSE, and halved my position in AHT this week. Bounced down off the 100 DMA and we are either in a temp market correction off some pretty poor market data after a decent bounce from Feb or on the cusp of something far more sinister. Beware..... Dollar is on the cusp of a technical break down below the 93 mark on DXY chart (daily). This would hurt AHT further..... Its not Armageddon yet but I don't like the whiff of it at the moment. Results should be good but you dont want to be holding this puppy if it all goes pear shaped on the global forward outlook.

Thanks 2flat but it was not difficult to see. The more difficult one is where next. It's either back up to have another try to break beyond 928 or drop further to the 860 zone.

The gap back to 890 looks likely to be filled.

Took 1/3rd of my position off the table early yesterday to try and insulate against Brackes gap filling. I am fairly confident we won't see the lows of earlier in the year again so looking to re enter in the near future.

Notified shorts UP. From Short Interest Tracker. . AQR Capital Management, LLC 0.50% 2016-04-26 Blue Ridge Capital, L.L.C 1.23% ↑ 0.09% 2016-02-10 CPMG, Inc 1.42% ↑ 0.04% 2016-01-28 Eminence Capital, LP 0.73% ↑ 0.11% 2016-04-22 Total 3.88% . Is this a new campaign or a rearguard action? Trying to play the volatility . I have a base long spread bet on, when the S/P rises to 925 or near close I have been forcing a short to cover the long ,keeping it on overnight to counter large gaps down, that are so loved by the shorters and MM. Cheers

A retrace from the attempt at 928 but soothing words from the FED to-day may provide the shove it needs.

Strong positive artcle in the IC last week extolling AHT's dividend potential.Probably responsible for a part of yesterday' gain. Cyclicality is supposed to damage them but analysts seem to have been unduly cautious.

2flat No problem with living in hope, you never know with AHT. I prefer to wait util it's cracked 1000. You will note that its being resisted at 928. It needs a shove.

Good day 2flat I did not miss the two zones you mention or rather it was a deliberate miss. Rather than give data at this time which is longer term I prefer to restrict my view to the short/medium term. There are a number of potential s/r zones above 1000 which I will refer to as, if and when the share price gets there.

I wounder what their paymasters have in store for us now. Cheers

Thanks Bracke.(ShareCast News) - Equipment rental firm Ashtead got a lift on Monday after a double upgrade from Bank of America Merrill Lynch. The bank upped its stance on the stock to 'buy' from 'underperform' and boosted the target price to 1,100p from 800p, pointing to an improved outlook for the company's markets. Merrill Lynch raised its earnings per share estimates for 2017 and 2018 by 8% and 14%, highlighting improving economic indicators, increased capex expectations and a better outlook for rental yields. "We believe that the lead economic indicators in the US are improving with the ISM indices bouncing off lows and the ABI gathering momentum. "Furthermore, we sense that excess equipment, both new and used, is subsiding in the supply chain which bodes well for the outlook for rental rates. Currently, utilisation and rates are yet to turn, but early signs are positive." In addition, it said the stock is neutral or positive in the EU referendum debate and is trading at a material discount to historical multiples whilst offering around 20% per annum EPS growth. Merrill said that in the case of Brexit, "lower potential demand in AHT's modest UK business would be more than offset by increases to forecasts driven by sterling". It noted that each 1% FX move is worth around £6m to pre-tax profit in a full year. DD

From my post 52191 The Targets 1 Break above the last major swing high achieved on 29 February at 928. 2 Fill the gap from 27/28 January at 963. This will give a 50% rise from the high on 17 December to the low on 11 February. The Resistances 1 The Median Line from the downtrend which commenced at the end of 2015. The share price was stopped at this line on 29 February. It is where the share price is now. 2 The DMA 200 currently at 960. 3 The psychological 1000 =============================================================================== To-day it has moved above resistance 1. Next is target 1....move above 928 and hold.
