|Go ahead!.......two posts in as many days and neither contributing anything.DD|
|can we keep the comments here to AHT please -|
|Thanks Bracke, appreciate your feedback..........starting to dabble with short term trades via spreadbet account, thus trying to understand a bit more TA.Also IMO it seems to make sense (leveraged and tax free) to use the account for some longer term holds as well, particularly if the company in question has no dividend and I would have happily bought some shares anyway.DD|
|Good day ian
uppompeii has numerous reservations but he does receive counselling and medication to control them.
My Elite Guru status remains intact but only just (see post 53068). Friday's drop has saved my blushes not to mention my discomfort. Provided I can get to the end of the year without major mishap the suspension will have run its course.
I am very tempted to go long especially as there is the new gap to fill.
And after all the volatility the DOW and S&P still finish the day up!!|
|Good day Disco
On my sbet chart it shows the low on the 4th as 1203.6 and the low on the 9th as 1202.1. I appreciate that sbet charts are not the best. In this case it makes little difference.|
|URI finished up 2.7% and Dow turned positive by close, might provide a clue to Monday's opening action....|
It seems that uppompeii has some reservations about your status as an 'Elite' guru... :-)
I share your reservations about the current market.... perhaps someone has noticed that Emperor Trump's new clothes are not all they seem?
Nevertheless, have a great weekend everyone, who knows what opportunities next week will bring...|
|Good day ian
"your guru rating"
'Elite' Guru if you please.
Long...it had crossed my mind but is the market fall over or is there more to come? I will keep eye on the share price and may go long in the hope/expectation/probability of a profit on the basis of a rise following scintillating results.|
|Ps it bounced of MA100 (near enough) on the 4th.|
|Thanks Bracke23.6% fib 1621, MA50 1618 (today's low 1616).Can I ask why the 9th Nov why not the swing low on the 4th Nov? (as a complete novice and non elite guru I would have gone for the 4th - incorrectly obviously!).DD|
|That would need reinstatement of elite guru status before he is allowed to do that....|
Glad to hear that the bracke family fortunes have been restored, and your guru rating remains untarnished....
....also means we can now gently take the mickey out of you TA merchants again, without feeling guilty! :-)
Now, is it time for you to try a long?
|Good (being the operative word) day all
I have been out most of the day and had set my short trades on a limit order to breakeven which they nearly did. I made 1.73 points!!! Had I been at home I would have closed lower and been well in the money but no complaints.
Yes I know you are all astounded at my superior trading skills....so am I. There will be much feasting, drinking and merriment in the bracke household over the weekend. That 1.73 points will buy me a bottle of Lidl's third best red. I know there will be a headache the 'morrow but hang the expense you only live once.
FOR THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED IN CHARTS ONLY SO NO COMPLAINING FROM THE FUNDAMENTALISTS.
On a Daily chart apply Fibonacci Retracement with zero at the 15 February high and 100 at 09 November low. Look at the s/r and where the share price has bounced from. Need I say more.....no.|
I hope so too!
It will be interesting to see what the U.S. markets do later, the worst may not yet be over. A shakeout has long been overdue imho
|I do hope the guru is not missing h oportunity with the short. Or is a lower exit now awaited?|
|bracke is strangely quiet this morning, I assume he has gone to Harrods to stock up for the celebrations - it appears he is having a late Christmas! :-)
|URI down 5.6%hTTp://www.ksl.com/?nid=151&sid=43280838&title=us-stocks-slide-as-industrial-and-technology-companies-fallBracke - your short still open?DD|
|lets 's just talk about this beautiful thing called ashtead and no more wate of time|
|I don't have balls of steel, I set a stop loss but I did reset it at the close.
I take full responsibility for the retrace. I should know better.
Looking forward to an Astead Friday.
I take it you think it will fall further.
As always I live in hope.
|Bracke ...to be fair to you. You deserve a bit of luck after all the good advice you have given. Well done, but hopefully normal service will now be resumed?Ianwwwhite..... good idea. Like it.....Now then..2Flatpack. Let me be the 1st to offer you "good luck with your longs"There you go ...sorted. Let's see what tomorrow brings. ;-)|
|Good day ian
"Now I can stop feeling guilty each time the price ticks up a few pence :-)"
Heaven forfend that you should feel guilty!! It's not a few pence that concerns me it's the 10s'!!
Now what's the probability of that gap filling? Just a little lower please.
"good luck with your shorts"
You can't take it back now, the fates have obliged.
I was a little surprised that although the Dow took a dive AHT was very eager to follow. However I smell a rat. Results on the 7th which odds on will be good and then......oh look up 40/50 points, there's a surprise!!|
Lol! Perhaps you could try a 'good luck with your longs' for 2FP, to jack the price back up again?
Many thanks, much appreciated.
