SBK, I heard a rumour that some Trumpeters are going to make a bid for the iii BP crew. Maybe you will be allowed back ;) http://www.bbc.com/news/live/business-39155910 ps Who are your new friends, they seem very spirited

Unlike you, I have the balls and the honesty to tell it like it is. I've never known such a vile creep as you and your friend "michaels". Toe-rags the pair of you. But YOU WILL be found out. I give you my word.

Hi Damps, Thanks. Much agree re reasons behind added risks with leverage. I'm also mindful that it's not my forte trading extreme volatility with SBs. I need to stick with stocks easier to predict & only that way can I match my success with real shares. Had a decent run with UKX since 6th Jan, but also have shorts there underwater. Originally I had a VG run with ANTO, too, but have since handed back a significant hit & now cumulative holding costs. I've answered your query more specifically on iii re my ANTO shorts (see FAO: Damps) as that's where my ANTO trading is posted. Unfortunately, my ANTO shorts opened much lower than 730. I closed my last ANTO longs at those levels after I opened the shorts. What happened? ANTO closed only 531.50 on 4th November. By 11th November, open was 750. Well over 200 pts price movement in a week! I got badly caught out, then settled my perennial ANTO longs, which previously also gave me a false sense of security. - Then Trump happened. Had to fund my account to trade again, as with UKX. It’s all been a nightmare at times. Seriously. The only fortunate thing: I tend to stake much lower when going short as a natural predisposition from a heightened awareness of added risks of shorting. - All the best!

Hi Jack, Can I ask at what level you have these ANTO shorts. I had it in my my mind that it was at the 730ish level and that they were originally hedges against your long positions ? I guess I'm wrong on that, it was certainly the level that Soi and I made the original bad call, and 'allegedly' dragged SBK into the foolish trade. I here what you are saying about going leveraged long near the high of 900. It is certainly true that had it not been for such duff earlier short calls, I would have held onto my additional shorts from the 890-900 area much longer. I think the simple fact is that it is all too easy to trade with leverage and take disproportionately larger positions than you would with real shares. These days are I'm very mindful of that and only take CFD positions of a similar size to that which I would with real share purchases. However that is not always easy to figure out when taking Index positions as the underlying stake size is not apparent. Fortunately, generally, the movements are not as violent.

Hi SBK, As you know, I’m in deep. When I get out, or closer to an acceptable hit, I’m done with gambling via leverage on more volatile, less predictable sectors like miners. Simply not worth the hassle or stress. You mention Rhino from iii, I'd also add Ricky who's recently been well hammered with spread-bets on other miners. IMO, if one is lucky enough to again buy real shares in stocks like ANTO at well below recent highs, one sits tight for higher targets. Same if using leveraged longs. That at least seems a fairly rational approach. But shorting, buying near L/T highs & hedging in these sectors is fraught with risk, unless one has very deep pockets. It can soon get out of control. I’m even seeing an element of this lack of control with the best traders, though in the opposite direction now. Just adding more & more positions without much discipline, just to see paper losses grow. It all seems avoidable risk-taking, regardless of size of one's account. But take your position. 868 SB long recently. Frankly, would you have bought at that level with real shares, so near L/T highs, if not for trying to hedge a 736 short? Speaking plainly, you surely wouldn’t. My own balls-up with this has been considerably greater & only now I'm seeing some relief, without taking anything for granted. I'd feel marginally more confident about my shorts, especially when copper strikes are ended, if not that ANTO's results on 14th really can go either way. So it goes. For much later, I'm mindful that ANTO has also left a few gaps well below 700. Some of those gaps I'm marking down for possible final exits at acceptable hits. Regards & GL. - Another busy day out tomorrow so catch up later.

Many ANTO punters will be perplexed at the strong 754 support today. The answer is: me. 754.2 is my lowest position - short! I have held it for some six weeks. Just before then I had a losing position of 736 and foolishly re-entered to claw back points. This was the launchpad to 9 quid. Today, I tried to give ANTO a rest. But I knew that it would not breach much below 754 as I have practiced this before - see above posts. So I went long at 755 after the late dip. Any reasonable person would assume that it would roam back up to at least 760 by the close. It didn't so I scratched the trade. This is my new strategy. Watch for a 50/50 chance of success when the share price is flat-lining. If it starts to trend against me against me I'll get out quick, not even bothering to get down to a stop position. If ever it goes my way, unlikely as that seems, I'll let it run. The irony is now that if I had done nothing for 6 weeks I would be in a break even position, rather than 100+ points down! Commiserations to Rhino on his similar bad times. Just as useful to hear from others' bad calls as well as the good ones. Which reminds me to start shorting BP and Shell or wait until they hit the bottom. Anyway, I see that on lap 4 of 5 I'm still 3rd in the week and leader for the Barc COMP season. Wouldn't it be great if I could do the double? I'd be the Barcelona of the Barc COMP. Finally, it is tough trading ANTO. I have thought about starting a career in blackmail, protection and extortion which is easier. I may start with, say, 50 quid a week from soi to allow him to win the COMP and another tenner a week for ticking all his posts on iii when I get back in. Regards to all ANTO addicts. IMHO, SBK

SBK, Well played, but if I was you I'd consider doing a quick screen-grab of Comp tracker before tomorrow's open. Omens for mid-week leaders remaining so by Friday's close are fairly remote if going by previous trends. You'll not see SBK positioned first again for a very long time, IMHO. Main thing here: copper still dropping, $2.59+ as I write, & associated miners likely to follow soon. If not for variables of ANTO's results on 14th March, I'd be even more confident of some ANTO shorts recovering sooner than later. But as it is, caution remains a byword here. http://www.antofagasta.co.uk/investors/financial-calendar/ Regards & GL.

I could not be sure yesterday. I hold the theory of a short term 20% retrace from recent 900p high. Dollar rns will dominate the week ahead so had to close. Results pending too. imho dyor

Well Mr Stamper, A bit of a bounce this morning Its now either headed to 820 or 750. But don't ask me which, I haven't a clue. I'm in defensive mode trying to minimize my errors with this on a daily basis. I guess this is not a lonely position to be in? IMHO, SBK

SBK, IMO, some people may be mistaken in thinking that recent lower growth targets from China were all priced in. Since that report on Sunday, mining sector & copper certainly seems weaker. I still think some gaps below may be fillable sooner than later, though of course I could be wrong & it takes longer. - Regards & GL.

Good to see the early rise which will hopefully help soi profit from those brave longs late yesterday. I was in a similar buying mind at the time but too scared. And that is the difference: the daring which makes soi so many points. Though I would not be afraid of being caught in a blind alley by a gang of tooled - up, drug crazed, Thai kick -boxing, Ninja thugs, ANTO reduces me to a gibbering wreck! Anyway the candles are going wild again as I write. I was not calling 820 the top, just a gap to be filled and hopefully overshot. My strategic ai is to get some shorts opened above 820 ready for the eventual plummet back to the 750 gap closure. Hope I'm not too late already... Regards, IMHO, SBK

You may be right about 820p being a top, but my tea leaves seem to suggest that the miners and in particular ANTO are unlikely to really pivot over to the bearish side until the end of March, beginning of April. The rest of this month is one of ranging IMHO. ps I note SNAP is now apparently difficult to short

Good Morning Well ANTO nearly dropped sub 800 yesterday but held a line. I`d like to see an early rise after or at open to close a couple of longs. Markets still seem very strong to me, copper at $5870 mid Oil at $5445 mid ( WTI ) SBK sorry it`s proving difficult for you to get re established on iii. I still consider your ban totally uncalled for. BTW re. my question on Daily Mail, it was genuine, I don`t have access to it, not that I want to read it was just curious as to it`s slant, you ended up answering my question so Thanks. Yes, I do get a bit out of touch as it goes. ATB soi
