Hi SBK, Thanks. That could prove to be a factor in turning things back in our favour. OTOH, things may also continue going the other way. ANTO still closing at levels not seen for a few years with a bullish 883.50 today, though volume not high. 2.84M is below average. A snippet I've just posted on iii, which I think exemplifies why this sector really is a minefield of variables, uncertainties & extreme volatility which catches out even those whose business it is to know at least a bit more than the rest of us. A recent article from 17 November, 2016. Of 22 banks polled, NO-ONE saw the copper price rally continuing: http://www.mining.com/of-22-banks-polled-no-one-sees-copper-price-rally-continue/ Just about sums it up. - Regards

Simple thoughts: If the strike spreads to ANTO it will have a much greater impact than that being experienced by BLT. The latter being much more commodity and geographically diversified. And even if the BLT strike is short-lived the workers are bound to win something, so higher costs for that company and this effect will no doubt spread to ANTO. All out lads! Good shorting times ahead. IMHO, SBK

Hi DS, Never had you down for idle mischief-making. :o) Thankfully, as yet, I'm not aware of talking aloud to myself in private. So the day I progress to doing so to alternative aliases on an internet BB, will probably be the time to sell everything & retire. ;o) But if ANTO breaks out, that might take me out of the leveraged game anyway. No denying that Copper's recent rise looks a bit ominous. Maybe needless to say, I've only entered SBK's entry as I've no conflict of interest whatsoever in Comp as I continue to flounder well down with the ineffably hopeless entrants. A bit of a change for me, but it is what it is. However, if I was in the top 5 with a strong chance of winning, would I still enter SBK's entry? Hell, no! I'd be on to Goldie pronto demanding SBK's disqualification on the grounds that Comp should be open to iii members only. I'm sure SBK would expect no less from me. ;o) IMHO, All the best!

I notice that Jack has, rather a little too efficiently, entered SBK's comp entry along with his own. I'm being to wonder if SBK is JD's alter ego and iii have rumbled it ?. It would certainly explain their actions......Hummmmm

HI Jack, And respect. As we all know the markets can remain irrational longer than an individual can remain solvent. Keep on controlling margins and be patient as a spider though, and it will all work out. The times will be a changing. Anyway, meantime, here is some happy thoughts and some nice people: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pzuF2oSkiE IMHO, SBK

Hi SBK, I'm surprised iii still haven't given you the slightest explanation for the ban. That's the least any one has a right to expect. Just hope you're able to return soon now that nearly 2 weeks have passed, mindful of the mentioned Holocaust denier's 2-week absence on BP's BB. Your 114 pts deficit with ANTO is quite enough, however, mine exceeds that by much more. So total empathy not in question. It's certainly affecting my ability to trade. Also, with copper spiking today on bullish China data as well as looming strike impact, my concerns grow for next week. Today's 866 ANTO close the highest for well over a year. - Sobering that only late October we saw below 500. I caught the article about the fool trying to burn a £20 note in front of an old homeless person. Contemptible as he is, I imagine it'll cost him dearly in the long run as his name & photo are all over the internet. By contrast, apparently, the late Tara Palmer-Tompkinson once drove past a homeless guy. Though in a rush, she noticed he smiled at her. She drove a few minutes further, then reversed. She got out & gave the guy a thousand pounds. He gave her a hug. Like most people, I only ever saw her in the press regarding her well-publicised excesses. But something about her resonated with me. Pity she didn't see a better outcome than, by all accounts, a quite lonely demise aged only 45. All the best!

Hi Damps, What I would like to see right now is for all ANTO workers to go on indefinite strike in sympathy with the BHP workers. Even better, would be a rumour of a threat by the Chilean Government to nationalize the country's entire copper mining industry. IMHO, SBK

Hi SBK, Yes I meant 'pennant'. Eye sight, dyslexia and the ipaddy all conspire against me. The top of the 'pennant' today is ~862p. Which is were I had my sell order. Obviously it didn't get filled, so I now have a sell order @853p, which doesn't seem to be attracting any interest. In the meantime Soi is, no doubt scalping furiously in the 84x ees. range trading is his forte. I hear what Jack is saying about risk of a rally to infinity and beyond (>900). and of course with a pennant formation it could break higher.However that is not my expectation. barring a major strike, mine closure, military coup etc. All of which are a definite possibility.

Hi SBK, It's tough. The longer ANTO stays well above 800 & consolidates, the more likely it seems that it could climb to new recent highs. That's unless we get specific bad news. But nothing suggests that prospect is anywhere near imminent. Needless to say, I carry quite a burden on the short side here. I doubt I'd continue holding if it flew well above 900. Busy day away from desk here. But even a slightly lower finish here than yesterday's 827.50, as unlikely as it seems today, seems the best one dares hope for. - Regards & GL.

Tad "irritating" today with ANTO. Early, I opened a 227 long to arrest my overall position, given the recent ludicrous spike. It then plummeted. When it got to 808 I knew I should add long but did not because of the above. Then, in wades Damps with a long at that very price, sending it zooming north. I got out of the early position at 229, with a bit of luck in the end. No doubt it will open at 239 in the morning. But I did like Damps late afternoon reasoning: "Funny ole day for the miners, and in particular ANTO. £/$ ~stable, Cu ~stable. Indexes buoyant. So why is ANTO so weak? I think I can see a pendant forming. It started in the last week of Jan. and has a base @808. If it were to play out then we should see a failure sometime next week with a break below 808, with a target of ~760. Which, I think, coincidentally would give a oldish gap closure (762.5p)". I'm assuming that he meant "pennant"? Otherwise we should enter some swing trades I reckon? OK, I'll get my coat. Again. IMHO, SBK

"soi will get around to Ubiq with good advice soon on iii, explaining his game, which is: Take a position at the wrong price, Wait until it gets right. Then close at the wrong price. I'm still working at that." SBK LOL Your wit still working well. chin up mate. soi

Good evening myself, Since I have been cast out of the real virtual world and disallowed from pontificating on any and all subject matters, I have taken up needlework. So, as I sew these mail bags in the iii House of Correction, I have time to plot. One idea I have is to write to iii confessing all of my misdmeanours and, wanting out, demanding the removal of all the aliases that I have accrued over the past 17 years: soi, Eadwig, LK Hyman, Damp Seaweed, Jalopeno and vtec, etc. If those guys disappeared all of a sudden, at the same time, boy, wouldn't Jack hit the bottle PDQ? Anyway, after much tussling I'm still down 80 points on this ANTO run. Was much worse. Fib charts beckon 785 sometime, but I need 750 to be really happy. soi will get around to Ubiq with good advice soon on iii, explaining his game, which is: Take a position at the wrong price, Wait until it gets right. Then close at the wrong price. I'm still working at that. IMHO, Free SBK

Hi SBK, Well done re ANTO. Copper rallying a bit now (2.649 as I write v 2.617 close Friday), hence ANTO consolidated a bit. But to double in share price from current levels, it surely needs copper to recover some way further. I note TA proponent, Zac Mir, who sees ANTO rising to 1000 later, targets a reverse to 750 before that. None of this factors in macro variables, like potential trade wars between China & US, et al, which could send markets & miners into sharp decline. That possibility no longer so far-fetched. JC is very pro-Brexit & a Trump fan to boot. No surprise to see unsupportable accusations coming from him, nor seeing the poster, Broadmoor, & like-minded company support him. The rest of us know it couldn't be further from the truth. Of course you're missed by many for your valuable input from a refreshingly individualistic angle. I suggested a new alias via another email address only as, right now, I can't see much headway in getting re-instated unless iii get back to you with some kind of "final warning". I appreciate you don't want to jettison your 17 year history, but I can still find Tas's history in a few seconds. Easy if you have a poster in your favourites list. Ditto the late Rumplestiltzkin. I keep them there out of respect. So SBK's posts will alway be on iii & can be linked to in a comment any time via a new alias. Just a thought. Best regards.

Hi SBK, Thanks. I was going to link iii's reply tonight for your interest alone, though the key problem remains: sadly, no progress made for any of us in revoking, or even receiving explanations, for your ban. Have iii actually given you any reasons? They ought to. It's very hard to make headway when iii restrict all their replies to meaningless officialese. Kafkaesque indeed & look where poor, hapless Josef K. ended up! Other than the probability that the alias who reported you is also sometimes present on BARC's BB, little is being granted. Whoever that is, it's highly unlikely to be anyone who interacts regularly on BARC's BB & who thus, presumably, understands & appreciates your often thought-provoking sense of humour. More likely, it's a fairly recent contributor who takes very strong issue with your position on matters like Brexit, ridiculous as that seems. Per AAA, Wannabe & Frog, like Soi, are all good guys, as I know you'll appreciate. But short of storming iii's HQ, kidnapping key staff & holding them to ransom ("re-instate SBK or else!"), what more can anyone do. That said, I'll email iii again later & more specifically about your ban. But increasingly, I really think the best way forward here might be for you to try & re-register on iii via another alias. - All the best! PS: Little significant movement with ANTO today. We really need copper to reverse again, but so far today it's slightly back up.

Jack, I saw the iii response to you. It strikes me of being classic Kafkaesque: you are punished (by having your post removed), for an unknown offence, following a complaint from an anonymous accuser! Still, at least you are not imprisoned in a dungeon and having to wear an iron mask like me. Anyway, some cheer due that great man John Bercow banning Trump from Parliament and saying true things about him, just like me. I also note that my torch of righteousness in such matters is being carried now on iii by such as Per ardua, wannabe and Frog. However, it is rather galling to see them putting their tanks on my lawn and assuming my mantle and going lukewarm on my defence case. They should be reported to neighbourhood watch! IMHO, SBK
