SBK, Thanks & you're welcome. Probably wise to give it a while longer before returning. Few could disagree with you about Dylan's "Blood on the tracks". Easily one of the finest LPs ever. Re copper: indeed, some sources remain very bullish. No surprise considering it's enjoyed its best rally for 5 years. The only slight comfort I take is that the past few days have seen copper closing lower. However, it's still a relatively healthy $2.70+. We really want it to fall back below $2.60 with volume, a level it's bounced off a few times recently, to see some major dips with associated miners. Maybe after the copper strikes end? - Regards.

Hi Jack, That low gap will surely get filled but it may take a bit of time yet. As Eadwig has been pointing out there is a lot of bullish talk in the Cu market re: firm demand and hiccups to supply. Just been listening to that great, timeless assemblage of songs, Dylan's "Blood on the tracks". How very pertinent are the lyrics of "Idiot wind" at his time? BTW I would not be allowed to quote that song title on iii. Unacceptable language. Weird world. Barc comp - grateful if you or some other kind person could put me down for 236.75 or nearest. TIA, Regards, IMHO, SBK

SBK, Yep, good call. There's also a gap at circa 762 as next open was 799 on 23/01. That seems very fillable. However, a bigger gap currently of interest to me is the one between my ears for ever shorting this wretched stock. Whether that particular gap will ever be fillable seems decidedly less certain. - Regards.

Well, I was right about the 830 gap, eh? I'm only 80 or so shorting points adrift now. Was 150 at one point. God I'm so good! IMHO, SBK P.S. ANTO workers deserve better! They should strike now. I'll wave a placard outside the Chilean Embassy in support of them, I swear.

It s good that the Escondida union has agreed to Government mediation: http://www.mining.com/striking-workers-at-bhps-escondida-mine-accept-govt-mediation/ However BHP have posponed the talks indefinitely. I guess they are doing a calculation regarding lost production v trying to buoy the copper price? Anyway, I am expecting the 830 gap to be filled soonish. Might go long then. I am also expecting that nobber Eadwig to arrive here in the refugee camp to gloat. I'm pretty sure that seeking to improve his Barc COMP chamces, he wrote to the iii Neighbour Watch something like this: "Dear Sir/ Madam, I would like to congratulate the entire iii Neighbourhood Watch team for dispatching Sir Buns-up Knealing. This vile monster has long been a sore on the backside of your noble website. Without his participation things can only get better and we can all go forward together to the sunlit uplands. Congratulations and well done team! Yours sincerely, Eadwig" IMHO, SBK

On my Fib chart 271 was max resistance. Since the uplift from the BLT strike it appears to have become a support level. But being sapped a bit now. Factors sending it back north: stronger dollar good for ANTO, hardening of BLT strike, Trump infrastructure promise boost. Greed. Factors sending it back south: profit taking, higher interest rates, end to BLT strike, US Govt chaos. Fear. And several other each-way issues, including copper inventories, surprisingly. In sum, I would not be amazed at another run up higher but I think the decay has set in. And when that does the HFT trading will move the share price sharply south. Two gaps down have just about been covered. The third to 830 is inevitable, over time. At this point and only then would I contra my shorts with longs. Scared off my previous plan by Damps' reminding me of the Martingale! I was out this morning and could not play. Caught up with iii posts late. Good discussion on Spreadbetting on Barc. Interested to note soi's quick thinking on the wti spike and shorts rapidly entered. Quick shorting of spikes (which have no apparent cause) may be a good tactic? I Miss being on iii and conversing with my favourite posters in that community, such as GC Trader, Johnycash, Muchado, lolabe and Les Berkseley. But I'm sure they are happy anyway, despite my absence. IMHO, SBK

Hi SBK, Thanks! I fully intend to stick with it, for now. As mentioned on iii, even if it requires more temporary funding, so be it. ANTO's rapid share price spikes have left plenty of gaps below. In time, many will be filled. Even though right now nearly everything seems against us. Meantime my trading focus lies elsewhere. I've taken over 420 pts on UKX shorts + longs since 6th Jan & I still have a few open positions there. Agree re Bannon, & no less Trump & others in current US administration. Sadly, even collective stupidity if given too much power can still wreak plenty of havoc before it's reined in. Re BLT mine riots: wouldn't surprise me if vested interests were inflaming matters. Copper seeing its best rally for 5 years. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-02-13/shutdowns-at-biggest-mines-extend-copper-s-best-rally-in-5-years Regards & GL. - Catch you later.

SBK, Are you going to get out of here soon?. It feels like I'm walking through Middlesbrough at night in a short skirt.Probably a bit scary for everyone. On topic; ANTO has obviously broken out of my pennant /flag in the wrong direction. Prudence suggests that I really should be hedging my shorts, but it just feels to heady. But doesn't always when you are up to your neck in alligators. Fortunately I have learnt the hard lesson of never being over committed to one position. Hence my reluctance to add a 3rd or 4th position to my 2 losing trades. My rule is that Nos 3&4 can only be added when I have conformation that I'm trading with the trend. I think TAS was the original proponent of this strategy. Anyway confirmed trend reversal is something that is not going to happen until ANTO crashes through 700-707p with conviction. So for the moment I'll probably just have to sit tight on ANTO and patiently watch my losses mount, with just the odd quickie scalp. Take care ps I'll bring some grapes next time;)

Hi SBK, What odds I wonder against Trump not having secret long positions by proxy in a few sectors, including mining? I won't deny that my dislike of Trump is increasing. Not "hate", as he's not worthy of my hatred. But his approach to the US economy reminds me of a dodgy businessman. Trump has after all bankrupted a few of his own businesses. He risks doing similar harm to USA. Typically, he borrows heavily. Hence one of his nicknames, "King of debt". Then he pumps like crazy to sell the product, making all manner of unrealistic promises of how it'll change so many lives for the better, etc. It sucks the markets in. But if eventually it all goes badly wrong, chances are Trump will be long gone back to his golden tower &, presumably, more QE (in a way, a form of welfare for banksters & the elite), will be called for. Re Aide-memoire: granted there's substance in what you say, still, we all have to plough our own furrow in markets, as elsewhere. ANTO's highest close in more recent years, 959 from 12 Feb 2014. To get significantly higher, ie. well over 1000 & as high as a return to 1600+, they'd need another copper super-cycle. We appear to be a very long way off from that. But having already funded my account by a 4-figure sum to allow me to open new trades, for eg. in shorting UKX, I don't want to stretch my funds further. To add to my existing ANTO shorts, that's what I'd need to do. For now, I have quite enough exposure for a L/T hold. Furthermore, as hinted at before, if I get out in one piece, that'll do me as regards shorting any mining stock. Never again! That's been decided. - Regards.

Hi Jack, I'm prepared for it to be long haul before this goes south. But anything can happen any day with this SP, as we all know. With the way my luck is running, however, I would not be surprised if Trump announced that he wants the 2000 mile long Mexican Border wall to be made from pure copper to give it an aesthetic shiny effect. Regards, IMHO, SBK P.S. I note that soi has done it again! Choosing a spoiling COMP entry too close to mine. He has also been cheating in the tough ANTO game by going away and making loads of dosh on oil. To be expected from a second hand car salesman, I suppose?

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
