Good day Topicel I like 'young' and yes 920 intraday (see chart above). No need for the sheep got some old bones I throw down and interpret how they land. Yes we will see.bracke
I must have missed 920, and if it managed that low intraday then indeed, you have a price victory young man - better?! I have plenty of time for this to go above £10.50-£11, I just sense it will happen during August, hence my month timespan. And no need to bother the moggies, visit a local field and get some sheep to cut open. I think that was the preferred Roman tell! On vera, as they say down my neck of the woods... Topiceltopicel
Good day Topicel First off less of the 'old' if you please!!!!! I don't say the share price will not achieve the levels you suggest but I do say be careful of such confidence and of your one month time frame. There are a number of technical obstacles along the way plus the non technical. Although the share price did not drop to 900 it did reach 920 so I am claiming that as a moral victory. I thought I should confirm my tea leaf readings with a more detailed technical method but the local cats are wary of me and will not volunteer their entrails for the greater good.bracke
I know, and that isn't in doubt. But with equal respect, I 'read' £10 this week and Bracke was implying £9, especially if the Fed were still hinting at September for interest rate hike, which they did... No-one is ever always right or always wrong, as you know, so respect aside, let's see what happens! Topiceltopicel
Topicel With the greatest respect, bracke's tea leaves come with a proven, successful track record on this thread over a long period, a brew that a lot of us are particularly partial to!ianwwwhite
You've read your tea leaves and I've read mine Brackey old boy! your hurdles are not fences IMHO, and given a whole month - which is what I said - I would think there is only one chicken to count and it will jump those obstacles at 10, 10.10 and even Mount Everest at £10.41... Assuming nothing major roils the markets generally of course! Anyway, I'm much more concerned with considering a contrarian position in gold, silver and other PMs. I reckon there has been a surfeit of doom and gloom in those areas and see Fresnillo as a tasty punt at its current values. Topiceltopicel
Spoil sport!DDdiscodave4
Topicel Be careful of chicken counting. The share price has to move over 1000,fill the gap up to 1010 and then deal with 'the big one' up to 1041. Achieving all of the above will be no mean feat. There are a number of obstacles along the way. We remain in 'interesting times'bracke
Ashtead's chief executive, Geoff Drabble, commented: "We are delighted to have completed this refinancing which provides us with long term stability and capacity to continue the execution of our well established strategy. It ensures that our debt package remains well structured and flexible. Against a backdrop of strong end markets and market share gains, we will utilise the facility to support the needs of the business with organic fleet growth. This growth combined with further greenfield openings and bolt-on acquisitions will continue to broaden the geographies and markets we serve. We continue to grow responsibly, generating strong returns and maintaining leverage within our stated objectives. I would like to thank the bank group for their support in the further growth and development of Ashtead." They have got more credit to play with and openly hinting at still strong end markets and market share gains...probably from URI, hence they're recent heavy falls. People are now waking up to the likelihood that AHT shouldn't have been hit so hard by default, especially if they are taking market share with far better management. Here's to a strong August as this corrects itself. Topiceltopicel
Not quite gonna make my predicted tenner by the end of the week, but the tide has certainly turned as we enter August and the build up to the results 2 September. The likelihood, all things being equal (when ever are they?!), is a steady rise towards £11 and even those seen prior to June... Don't forget the average of the analysts covering this are factoring similar levels with £13.50 as a rather excessive high... URI concerns seem to have abated and this is a favourite swing trade IMHO. Good weekend all, Topiceltopicel
Some very well timed buys a few days ago. Well done all. URI still got a long way to go and covered by all the SB companies. Check it out!clarky5150
bracke Many thanks, much appreciated. Interesting times!ianwwwhite
ian I was pondering that very thought this morning. Although my trading and investing are chart based I am not oblivious to 'events'. We do not have long to wait for the first. In just over an hour Mrs Yellen will be talking about interest rates which could move the markets one way or the other. There is also the China situation to bear in mind. The share price rise over the past three days may simply be a retrace. If it is then the 900 zone remains a fair probability. I do not think that it is out of immediate danger until it has moved above 1000 and held. If Mrs Yellen speaks soothing words along the lines of 'there is no rush to increase rates' I suspect 1000 could be reached in short order but if those words are not forthcoming there may be some delay before 1000 is reached. From a technical viewpoint the reversal downwards remains in place until it breaks and holds above the last swing high on 16 July. There are a number of resistance zones before it reaches that swing high.bracke
Bracke On a more serious note, do you see a return to the 900 level still on the cards, or is there a possibility that we have turned the corner?ianwwwhite
LOL!! I think he took the line that it was more blessed to give than to receive.bracke
Bracke Come, come, you know we all appreciate and learn from your postings, long may they continue. Not too sure about the Matthew reference however, I know he was an Apostle, and gave advice about pearls, but did he ever make a Prophet?ianwwwhite
ian I despair! Here I am doing my best to uplift trading and investing awareness on this thread and what do I get: "I am surprised that there is no mention of the more intuitive type of approach to making investment decisions!" EDIT I note that you have added "which sometimes pays off". I refer you to Matthew 7:6.bracke
Bracke Thanks , interesting read, although I am surprised that there is no mention of the more intuitive type of approach to making investment decisions which sometimes pays off!ianwwwhite
Added a few more yesterday.kilgallp
An opening gap this morning but neatly filled. US Monetary Policy and Interest Rate later to-day are likely to affect. If The China situation causes a delay in interest rate rise good probability of £10 in the shorter term.bracke
Lol, mouth-washing still working! back to a tenner by end of week IMHO. Topiceltopicel
Thanks bracke, Thought the same but could not find any other charting site that gives mma as an option - which led me to conclude that it's not that important!.900!...wash your mouth out!.Have a good one.DDdiscodave4
