schosam: 3windy - i think what you're looking at is the dow rolling day, which trades 24 hrs and tracks the dow price during dow trading, and futures movements out of hours. it is the instrument you want for short term dow trading, because it has a tighter spread than actual futures. you can also trade dow futures (sep /dec) which have a wider spread. take a look at this:
mindthegap365: anyone with ig, if so could you post current FTSE and DOW price, cheers.
eelanguilla: glad this board has gone under the radar .. dip 2 should coincide with mid sept .. not :) the drift down doesnt convince me at all .. time numbs the brain. Its a good 2 months from here .. paid derampers like opec/topgun/mindthegap/andy/creditcrunchies/ will have time to spread the bile ... /yawn if someone is going to lecture me .. dont choose ecomonics .. or the euro .. or the $ ... or oil .. or gold ...... :):):) I think it may go on till end of aug personally - all the stimulus etc etc will take effect - only one thing is going to go up and we know stock prices are an inflation hedge - its like a free double bet on a winner lol :) all the usual suspects will be back in the autumn .. but one thing i noticed .. that was the ROS share price .. made me chuckle :)
gcom2: Topguns just saw your post I will post some Dow price/dividend ratio data I have when I have a minute, yes this rally will end sometime but I don't think 6500 , I'd guess 800-1k downside.
wally27: stops that are not that tight but have to be moving your stops all the time to track the market. Yes, I am now aware that the the Dow price on IG Index and the real price are different and yes thay will reach for the stops when they get a chance.
eenyweeny: Craig, you have posted some excellent analysis and ideas over the last few days. Many thanks from me.I would like you to add the header jump links again at some point but maybe later.Anyway, here's a copy of a so called "Tip sheet" that you will want to study.All rights to the originator are acknowledged. Open A Sell Bet In June Barclays Says The Bet: We recommend opening a sell bet in June Barclays (BARC) (Expiry June 16th) at £20 a penny when the quote is standing at 173.7p - 173.8p. The target is 100p and the stop loss at 196p for a risk of £446 at our suggested wager. The Fundamental View: We are opening a sell bet in June Barclays in the full knowledge that a great campaign is being launched to ensure that this bank does not head for either Northern Rock, HBOS or even Lloyds TSB territory. The bank is being talked up to the stars, is to pass FSA stress tests, whatever that really means, and will not have a rights issue. All of this may be the case and we wish the bank well, but unless this is the greatest company in the world there is the prospect of at least a minor dip in the share price. Even Northern Rock had rallies of 50% or more before it finally succumbed, and although Barclays is not in the same boat, we are looking for an initial share price decline. The Technical View: We were looking at a charting sell here for Barclays on the basis that even the strongest of stocks / markets do not make it through their 200 day moving average on the first attempt. In this case the level in question is 163p and while below this the downside could be part of, or all the way back to 100p, the last major support zone. Conclusion: Open a sell bet in Barclays on the basis that too much hype is in the share price. With, you can be spreadbetting within minutes - click here to sign up.
craig666: THE ART OF STOCK MANIPULATION.... In every profession, there are probably a dozen or two major rules. Knowing them cold is what separates the professional from the amateur. Not knowing them at all? Well, let's put it this way: How safe would you feel if you suddenly found yourself piloting (solo) a Boeing 747 as it were landing on an airstrip? Unless you are a professional pilot, you would probably be frightened out of your wits and would soil your underwear. Hold that thought as you read this essay because I will explain to you how market manipulation works. What the professionals and the securities regulators know and understand, which the rest of us do not, is this. "RULE NUMBER ONE: ALL SHARP PRICE MOVEMENTS -- WHETHER UP OR DOWN -- ARE THE RESULT OF ONE OR MORE (USUALLY A GROUP OF) PROFESSIONALS MANIPULATING THE SHARE PRICE." This should explain why a mining company finds something good and "nothing happens" or the stock goes down. At the same time, for NO apparent reason, a stock suddenly takes off for the sky! On little volume! Someone is manipulating that stock, often with an unfounded rumor. In order to make these market manipulations work, the professionals assume: (a) The Public is STUPID and (b) The Public will mainly buy at the HIGH and (c) The Public will sell at the LOW. Therefore, as long as the market manipulator can run crowd control, he can be successful. Let's face it: The reason you speculate in such markets is that you are greedy AND optimistic. You believe in a better tomorrow and NEED to make money quickly. It is this sentiment which is exploited by the market manipulator. He controls YOUR greed and fear about a particular stock. If he wants you to buy, the company's prospects look like the next Microsoft. If the manipulator wants you to desert the sinking ship, he suddenly becomes very guarded in his remarks about the company, isn't around to glowingly answer questions about the company and/or GETS issued very bad news about the company. Which brings us to the next important rule. "RULE NUMBER TWO: IF THE MARKET MANIPULATOR WANTS TO DISTRIBUTE (DUMP) HIS SHARES, HE WILL START A GOOD NEWS PROMOTIONAL CAMPAIGN." Ever wonder why a particular company is made to look like the greatest thing since sliced bread? That sentiment is manufactured. Newsletter writers are hired -- either secretly or not -- to cheerlead a stock. PR firms are hired and let loose upon an unsuspecting public. Contracts to appear on radio talk shows are signed and implemented. Stockbrokers get "cheap" stock to recommend the company to their "book" (that means YOU, the client in his book). An advertising campaign is rolled out (television ads, newspaper ads, card deck mailings). The company signs up to exhibit at "investment conferences" and "gold shows" (mainly so they can get a little "podium time" to hype you on their stock and tell you how "their company is really different" and "not a stock promotion.") Funny little "hype" messages are posted on Internet newsgroups by the same cast of usual suspects. The more, the merrier. And a little "juice" can go a long way toward running up the stock price. The HYPE is on. The more clever a stock promoter, the better his knowledge of the advertising business. Little gimmicks like "positioning" are used. Example: Make a completely unknown company look warm and fuzzy and appealing to you by comparing it to a recent success story, Diamond Fields or Bre-X Minerals. That is the POSITIONING gospel, authored by Ries and Trout (famous for "Avis: We Want To Be #1" and "We Try Harder" and other such slogans). These advertising/PR executives must have stumbled onto this formula after losing their shirts speculating in a few Canadian stock promotions! The only reason you have been invited to this seemingly incredible banquet is that YOU are the main course. After the market manipulator has suckered you into "his investment," exchanging HIS paper for YOUR cash, the walls begin to close in on you. Why is that? "RULE NUMBER THREE: AS SOON AS THE MARKET MANIPULATOR HAS COMPLETED HIS DISTRIBUTION (DUMPING) OF SHARES, HE WILL START A BAD NEWS OR NO NEWS CAMPAIGN." Your favorite home-run stock has just stalled or retreated a bit from its high. Suddenly, there is a news VACUUM. Either NO news or BAD rumors. I discovered this with quite a few stocks. I would get LOADS of information and "hot tips." All of a sudden, my pipeline was shut-off. Some companies would even issue a news release CONDEMNING me ("We don't need 'that kind of hype' referring to me!). Cute, huh? When the company wanted fantastic hype circulated hither and yon, there would be someone there to spoon-feed me. The second the distribution phase was DONE....ooops! Sorry, no more news. Or, "I'm sorry. He's not in the office." Or, "He won't be back until Monday." The really slick market manipulators would even seed the Internet news groups or other journalists to plant negative stories about that company. Or start a propaganda campaign of negative rumors on all available communication vehicles. Even hiring a "contrarian" or "special PR firm" to drive down the price. Even hiring someone to attack the guy who had earlier written glowingly about the company. (This is not a game for the faint-hearted!) You'll also see the stock drifting endlessly. You may even experience a helpless feeling, as if you were floating in outer space without a lifeline. That is exactly HOW the market manipulator wants you to feel. See Rule Number Five below. He may also be doing this to avoid the severe disappointment of a "dry hole" or a "failed deal." You'll hear that oft-cried refrain, "Oh well, that's the junior minerals exploration business... very risky!" Or the oft-quoted statistic, "Nine out of 10 businesses fail each year and this IS a Venture Capital Startup stock exchange." Don't think it wasn't contrived. If a geologist at a junior mining company wasn't optimistic and rosy in his promise of exploration success, he would be replaced by someone who was! Ditto for the high-tech deal, in a world awash with PhD's. So, how do you know when you are being taken? Look again at Rule #1. Inside that rule, a few other rules unfold which explain how a stock price is manipulated. "RULE NUMBER FOUR: ANY STOCK THAT TRADES HUGE VOLUME AT HIGHER PRICES SIGNALS THE DISTRIBUTION PHASE." When there was less volume, the price was lower. Professionals were accumulating. After the price runs, the volume increases. The professionals bought low and sold high. The amateurs bought high (and will soon enough sell low). In older books about market manipulation and stock promotion, which I've recently studied, the markup price referred to THREE times higher than the floor. The floor is the launchpad for the stock. For example, if one looks at the stock price and finds a steady flatline on the stock's chart of around 10 cents, then that range is the FLOOR. Basically, the markup phase can go as high as the market manipulator is capable of taking it. From my observations, a good markup should be able to run about five to ten times higher than the floor, with six to seven being common. The market manipulator will do everything in his power to keep you OUT OF THE STOCK until the share price has been marked up by at least two-three times, sometimes resorting to "shaking you out" until after he has accumulated enough shares. Once the markup has begun, the stock chart will show you one or more spikes in the volume -- all at much higher prices (marked up by the manipulator, of course). That is DISTRIBUTION and nothing else. Example: Look at Software Control Systems (Alberta:XVN), in which I purchased shares after it had been marked up five times. There were eight days of 500,000 (plus) shares trading hands, with one day of 750,000 shares trading hands. Market manipulator dumping shares into the volume at higher prices. WHENEVER you see HUGE volume after the stock has risen on a 75 degree angle, the distribution phase has started and you are likely to be buying in -- at or near the stock's peak price. Example: Look at Diamond Fields (TSE:DFR), which never increased at a 75 degree angle and did not have abnormal volume spikes, yet in less than two years ran from C$4 to C$160/share. Example: Look at Bre-X Minerals (Alberta:BXM), which did not experience its first 75 degree angle, with huge volume until July 14th, 1995. The next two trading days, BXM went down and stayed around C$12/share for two weeks. The volume had been 60% higher nearly a month earlier, with only a slight price increase. Each high volume and spectacular increase in BXM's share price was met with a price retreat and leveling off. "Suddenly," BXM wasn't trading at C$2/share; it was at C$170/share.... up 8500% in less than a year! In both of the above cases, major Canadian newspapers ran extremely negative stories about both companies, at one time or another. In each instance, just before another share price run up, retail investors fled the stock! Just before both began yet another run up! Successful short-term speculators generally exit any stock run up when the volume soars; amateurs get greedy and buy at those points. "RULE NUMBER FIVE: THE MARKET MANIPULATOR WILL ALWAYS TRY TO GET YOU TO BUY AT THE HIGHEST, AND SELL AT THE LOWEST PRICE POSSIBLE." Just as the manipulator will use every available means to invite you to "the party," he will savagely and brutally drive you away from "his stock" when he has fleeced you. The first falsehood you assume is that the stock promoter WANTS you to make a bundle by investing in his company. So begins a string of lies that run for as long as your stomach can take it. You will get the first clue that "you have been had" when the stock stalls at the higher level. Somehow, it ran out of steam and you are not sure why. Well, it ran out of steam because the market manipulator stopped running it up. It's over inflated and he can't convince more people to buy. The volume dries up while the share price seems to stall. LOOK AT THE TRADING VOLUME, NOT THE SHARE PRICE! When earlier, there may have been 500,000 shares trading each day for eight out of 12 trading days (as in the case of Software Control Systems), now the volume has slipped to 100,000 shares (or so) daily. There are some buyers there, enough for the manipulator to continue dumping his paper, but only so long as he can enlist one or more individuals/services to bang his drum. He may continue feeding the promo guys a string of "promises" and "good news down the road." (Believe me, this HAS happened to me!) But, when the news finally arrives, the stock price goes THUD! This is entirely orchestrated "RULE NUMBER SIX: IF THIS IS A REAL DEAL, THEN YOU ARE LIKELY TO BE THE LAST PERSON TO BE NOTIFIED OR WILL BE DRIVEN OUT AT THE LOWER PRICES." Like Jesse Livermore wrote, "If there's some easy money lying around, no one is going to force it into your pocket." The same concept can be more clearly understood by watching the tape. When a market manipulator wants you into his stock, you will hear LOUD noises of stock promotion and hype. If you are "in the loop," you will be bombarded from many directions. Similarly, if he wants you out of the stock, then there will be orchestrated rumors being circulated, rapid-fired at you again from many directions. Just as good news may come to you in waves, so will bad news. You will see evidence of a VERY sharp drop in the share price with HUGE volume. That is you and your buddies running for the exits. If the deal is really for real, the market manipulator wants to get ALL OF YOUR SHARES or as many as he can... and at the lowest price he can. Whereas before, he wanted you IN his market, so he could dump his shares to you at a higher price, NOW when he sees that this deal IS for real, he wants to pay as little as possible for those same shares... YOUR shares which he wants to you part with, as quickly as possible. The market manipulator will shake you out by DRIVING the price as low as he can. Just as in the "accumulation" stage, he wants to keep everything as quiet as possible so he can snap up as many of the shares for himself, he will NOW turn down, or even turn off, the volume so he can repeat the accumulation phase. In the mining business, there seems to always be another "area play" around the corner. Just as Voisey's Bay drifted into oblivion, during the fourth quarter of 1995 and early into 1996, the same Voisey Bay "wannabees" began striking deals in Indonesia. Some even used new corporate entities. Same crooks, different shingles. The accumulation phase was TOP SECRET. The noise level was deadingly silent. As soon as the insiders accumulated all their shares, they let YOU in on the secret. "RULE NUMBER SEVEN: CONVERSELY, YOU WILL OFTEN BE THE LAST TO KNOW WHEN THIS DEAL SHOWS SIGNS OF FAILURE." Twenty-twenty hindsight will often show you that there was a "little stumble" in the share price, just as the "assays were delayed" or the "deal didn't go through." Manipulators were peeling off their paper to START the downslide. And ACCELERATE it. The quick slide down makes it improbable for your getting out at more than what you originally paid for the stock... and gives you a better reason for holding onto it "a little longer" in case the price rebounds. Then, the drifting stage begins and fear takes over. And unless you have serves of steel and can afford to wait out the manipulator, you will more than likely end up selling out at a cheap price. For the insider, marketmaker or underwriter is obliged to buy back all of your paper in order to keep his company alive and maintain control of it. The less he has to pay for your paper, the lower his cost will be to commence his stock promotion again... at some future date. Even if his company has no prospects AT ALL, his "shell" of a company has some value (only in that others might want to use that structure so they can run their own stock promotion). So, the manipulator WILL buy back his paper. He just wants to make sure that he pays as little for those shares as possible. "RULE NUMBER EIGHT: THE MARKET MANIPULATOR WILL COMPEL YOU INTO THE STOCK SO THAT YOU DRIVE UP ITS PRICE SHARES." Placing a Market Order or Pre-Market Order is an amateur's mistake, typifying the US investor -- one who assumes that thinly traded issues are the same as blue chip stocks, to which they are accustomed. A market manipulator (traders included here) can jack up the share price during your market order and bring you back a confirmation at some preposterous level. The Market Manipulator will use the "tape" against you. He will keep buying up his own paper to keep you reaching for a higher price. He will get in line ahead of you to buy all the shares at the current price and force you to pay MORE for those shares. He will tease you and MAKE you reach for the higher price so you "won't miss out." Miss out on what? Getting your head chopped off, that's what! One can avoid market manipulation by not buying during the huge price spikes and abnormal trading volumes, also known as chasing the stock to a higher price. "RULE NUMBER NINE: THE MARKET MANIPULATOR IS WELL AWARE OF THE EMOTIONS YOU ARE EXPERIENCING DURING A RUN UP AND A COLLAPSE AND WILL PLAY YOUR EMOTIONS LIKE A PIANO." During the run up, you WILL have a rush of greed which compels you to run into the stock. During the collapse, you WILL have a fear that you will lose everything... so you will rush to exit. See how simple it is and how clear a bell it strikes? Don't think this formula isn't tattooed inside the mind of every manipulator. The market manipulator will play you on the way up and play you on the way down. If he does it very well, he will make it look like someone else's fault that you lost money! Promise to fill up your wallet? You'll rush into the stock. Scare you into losing every penny you have in that stock? You'll run away screaming with horror! And vow to NEVER, ever speculate in such stocks again. But many of you still do.... The manipulator even knows how to bring you back for yet another play. What actors! No wonder Vancouver is sometimes called "Hollywood North." "FINAL RULE NUMBER TEN: A NEW BATCH OF SUCKERS LIKE ANDY, OPEC, PORRIDGE AND JUSSY ARE BORN WITH EVERY NEW PLAY." The Financial Markets are a Cruel, Unkind and Dangerous Playing Field, one place where the newest amateurs are generally fleeced the most brutally.... usually by those who KNOW the above rules. Just as I have a duty to ensure that each of you understand how this game is played, YOU now have that same duty to guarantee that your fellow speculator understands these rules. Just as I would be a criminal for not making this data known to you, YOU would be just as criminal to keep it a secret. There will always be an unsuspecting, trusting fool whom the rabid dogs will tear to shreds, but it does NOT have to be this way. IF every subscriber made this essay broadly known to his friends, acquaintances and family, and they passed it on to their friends, word of mouth could cause many of these market manipulators to pause. IF this effort were done strenuously by many, then perhaps the financial markets could weed out the crooked manipulators and the promoters could bring us more legitimate plays. The stock markets are a financing tool. The companies BORROW money from you, when you invest or speculate in their companies. They want their share price going higher so they can finance their deal with less dilution of their shares... if they are good guys. But, how would you feel about a friend or family member who kept borrowing money from you and never repaid it? That would be theft, plain and simple. So, a market manipulator is STEALING your money.

shauney2: Looks like your 10 Barclay shares are safe porridge. 16 January 2009 BARCLAYS PLC Response to share price movement In view of Barclays recent share price movement, the Board of Barclays has today issued the following statement. The Board of Barclays knows no justification for the fall in the share price. Barclays will announce full results for the year ended 31 December 2008 on 17 February 2009. The Board of Barclays expects to report profit before tax for the year, after reflecting all costs, impairment and market valuations, well ahead of the £5,300m consensus estimate of sell-side analysts. Further, Barclays expects to report a year-end equity tier one capital ratio and tier one capital ratio, on a pro forma basis reflecting the conversion of the Mandatorily Convertible Notes, of approximately 6.5% and 9.5% respectively.
knowing: DSG boosted by upbeat broker meeting JJB Sports is not the only mid cap retailer in focus today, with electrical group DSG International moving ahead, but Argos and Homebase owner Home Retail Group losing ground. DSG is up 1.75p at 14.5p after a positive note from Oriel Securities following a presentation to the broker by the company's chief executive John Browett. In a buy note analyst Ramona Tipnis said: "[The] presentation to our sales team yesterday helped reaffirm our view that the both strategy and operational management of the company are right for the prevailing market conditions, positioning DSG well for when we come out of the current downturn whilst protecting it from the current horrors. "Yet the current share price values DSG's equity at less than £250m. Clearly the market is factoring in the worst-case scenario, which is a combination of the debt getting out of control and suppliers becoming increasingly cautious about supplying DSG. In short the assumption is that the company cannot continue to trade in its current form. We disagree as we believe that (1) the issue of credit insurance has not, as yet, resulted in suppliers renegotiating supply terms, (2) debt remains under control and (3) the strategy is realigning and positioning the business well for the future. In short, we believe, the current share price significantly undervalues DSG. "Despite widespread comment that DSG's suppliers have had their credit insurance withdrawn, DSG has to date seen no change in its supplier terms. Instead, it is likely that the issue is impacting smaller independent electrical retailers to a greater degree, thus helping DSG in a difficult market. Clearly if conditions were to worsen from here, it would be foolhardy to argue that DSG remains unaffected. However as the largest electrical retailer in Europe, an impact here will likely mean the end of the road for not just DSG but also all electrical retailers and suppliers, all of smaller scale. "Aside from the £300m guaranteed bond due in 2012, DSG had at the interim stage drawn down £100m of its £400m revolving credit facility. Even at peak the drawdown is expected to be no more than £250m, leaving enough headroom. Net debt for 2009 and 2010 is expected to be in the £150m to £200m region, which means that debt remains manageable at around 1.0x to 1.5x earnings and more importantly within covenants. "The Currys superstores are proving to be a great success and the aim is to covert as many locations as possible to this format either by putting in mezzanines or by bringing together the PC World and Currys stores on the same retail parks to put in place a Currys superstore. "We are encouraged by what we see at DSG. The business is being prudently managed for the current market conditions and management remains pragmatic, balancing the level of capital expenditure given current trading and net debt positions. Moreover, the strategy roll-out remains well thought through and positions DSG well for the future. We are not for a moment discounting the unprecedented nature of the current downturn in consumer spending, but we believe the market is giving management no credit for its ability to manage the company through the downturn and even less credit for its ability to position DSG on a sound footing for the future."
craig666: Nothing to do with the Dow, but everything to do with what is happening in the markets today. We're UP, we're Down, now is the time to BUY now is the time to SELL, this is the BOTTOM, this is the TOP, you are SHORT you are LONG.. Sound familiar? Sometimes you have to step back from the big picture and take some time out. Nobody can call these market bottoms accurately. It is not like waiting for a bus ( Here it comes 3800 going to 6000 let's all get on ) If this is what some of you think will happen, think again. If it was that easy, we would all be millionaires. Do you know where the bottom really is? I'll tell you 6-12-18 months from now, when you look back on a chart and say *THAT* was when the markets turned. October 1987 was a black, black period. There was a nasty stock market crash. What happened then provides a golden insight into how bear (falling) markets tend to behave. During this infamous catastrophe, shares dropped for three days big time. Then investors began buying back, thinking the off loading of stocks had been overdone. The rearguard action, mainly by private investors, caused the shares to come back a bit. Then the institutions took advantage of us. They started selling any stock they still had left at this new higher price. Naturally, prices quickly fell to another even lower level. So all of us who bought in after three days, when we thought the worst seemed to be over, we all caught a cold. After a severe tumble, the markets eventually regained its composure. Don't get me wrong, it took some months, to be honest best part of a year. The kind of down and ups' we are seeing at the moment, is nowhere near as bad as the crash of 1987. Corrections happen, history proves this, and today's levels on the Dow index are no different from the past. So what do we do? Me I go back to the drawing board. I ask myself" what makes me want to run up the road to the next bus stop, and get on this bus before everyone else does. Sometimes I ask myself" what makes me want to get off this bus before everyone else.. As I have already said, I go back to the drawing board! There are two temptations for those lucky enough to back a share which develops into a fast-riser. The first is to play it safe-and come out too soon. The other is to lie back and enjoy the ride. You might ask yourselves what's wrong with the second course? Well, top investors/ traders don't just watch passively as their winners party. They keep going back for more. Just like wise pension-owners, they're always topping up their shares in any company which continues to do well. In fact, if you find an enterprise which is a real star for you, you might be advised to put in as much as you can. As long as you watch for the danger signs of course. Share pickers are sometimes reluctant to top up a winner. They bought the shares a lot higher and mull over today's price and think 'Huh, its' UP I'm not buying now its' to high, or I'm not buying now its' to low, or -I'll wait until it gets down to what the BB poster said it will reach.......The truth is U have to decide when to board the cruise, only you count. In these market conditions. Look after number 1. Personally I beleive the banks will fall another 60%! from Fridays close. There's no limit for an ascending share if the company stays on course. And if it's eluded failure so far, who's to say it won't do so forever? Let's take a little break from the important task of making money or losing money. To explain a few handy City expressions. By handy I don't mean desirable, because not all of these phrases are ugly.. To Underweight (Sell shares) Being underweight in lettuce LTD ( Not having many shares ) Being overweight ( Having to many shares ) The share price has consolidated ( Having too many shares ) Gain exposure ( Buy shares ) To reduce your exposure ( sell shares ) Downgrade your weighting (Sell some shares, but not all of them ) Upgrade your weighting ( Buy some more shares ) To be over-ex posed ( To have too many shares in a risky firm) Take a position ( Buy some more shares ) Add to your position ( Same As ) Limited upside ( shares expected to fall ) Selling stock short ( selling shares in hope of buying them back cheaper later) So the market has turned nasty and you are showing a huge loss on the last month of the year. You're not yet slipping your feet into wet concrete and looking for a river, but you are wondering whether it's safer to turn your shares into reassuring cash for the time being. My answer is to keep selling the peaks. You read in the paper that fund managers are sitting on a wall of cash at present. This might seem like a bad omen: they must be wary of holding shares. City professionals are very unhappy about their wall of cash: raw money is a nuisance, it doesn't make as much interest as you might think. Fund manages will be anxious to buy huge blocks of shares, but sure which ones to buy. As the heavy pressure of money builds up ( some have all the luck) the chaps who set the share prices get their marking pens out, and institutions start to spend, spend, spend, equity values, especially those of hefty corporations, really light up. If after reading about a general cash glut, you can nip in and buy before the fund managers! A big buying spree will lead to an explosion in the footsie. It will quickly drift down to smaller firms too. Look for companys that trade in GOLD!!!!! and have plenty of liquidity. Companys who hold the monopoly. Companys with good management. Companys with good PEs and Yield. Companys with a great future. Gold is going to $2000/$3000 within 2yrs!!!!!!!!
