SBK, apropos to nothing at all ... I keep a mobile that cost me five quid in 2012 and I put five quid pay as you go on it, which I might have added to once. I gave it to a friend visiting the Uk in case of emergency, it wasn't used and he gave me it back when he left. I now use that number when a site wants my mobile phone number to 'validate' me. For validation read to sell to advertisers. I'm not sure how many are sophisticated enough to actually do any cross-checking of the mobile number to identity details given. As I say, they're interested in getting a valid mobile number to sell to advertisers as much as anything - especially when you're not actually setting up an account linked to any financial transactions. If i could be bothered to look I bet I have old mobiles lying around that I could buy a pay as you go sim card and stick it in. Even if they are set-up for a specific network, every town has at least one shop where some teenager will 'unlock' it for you. I often use post codes from old addresses that very likely still have my name associated with them through some old account or other. The UK does most of its tracking by address, even for credit checks. The flats where I live don't have a number 13 - but there it is on the address lookup when I put my post code into a database (Good old Royal Mail). There's only two databases that everyone uses commercially, and they both give the wrong street address for my flat anyway ... Things are tighter than they were though, for sure, and only going to get tighter. I had a load of hotmail and yahoo e-mail addresses that have been removed due to none use. I set up a gmail address recently and was surprised at the hoops I had to jump through. I got so lost on it all I decided to start from scratch and that failed when I used some data from the previous attempt (another e-mail address or phone number, I forget which). On the other hand, having recently been denied purchasing a certain fund due to where I was logging in from, something that is actually legal and matters (apparently), I cleared browser history, turned tracking off and what do you know? The particular site was suddenly happy to accept my cash at the next attempt. I'm sure where there is a will there is a way.

Bland day for me on the markets. But having some success in my COMP campaign with: "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_BAD_CONFIG". Next will be "PARANOIA_INDUCE_ GOOD_KNACKERER" All's fair in love, war and the COMP! IMHO, SBK

Well, it is a confusing start to the week on the markets. ANTO should head up more to close that 780 gap but as its already 20+ points north it may stall. The only clear plan is for me to add more shorts on Barc if it gets into the mid 230s. US interest rate hike maybe in the price and the reaction to A50 is unpredictable, though volatility this week seems assured. Another small irritant this morning is the Barc COMP spreadsheet is wrong: the numbers and placings in the Q2 and season columns that is. Though I'm not bothered myself, it is only a fun game after-all. Indeed, I think it would be a good outcome if brainbox soi won this season. It would sort of validate his prowess with real share dealing. No bitter rivalry from me that some others believe is the case. If he is indeed triumphant I will be the first to send him a gift. Anyway, I'm preoccupied with my new hobby of collecting exotic and useful pets: hxxp://www.thailandsnakes.com/venomous/ IMHO, SBK

Thanks Jack for the COMP posting, though it will probably result in extra, eye-popping stress by next Friday. All iii posts are being read and notes taken of the good guys and those deserving of my vengeance. Lot of work for me to do with the latter when I get back in. As for the markets this week and for the foreseeable future: there are just too many wild news events and such uncertainty with everything, and with imbeciles driving the bus, one cannot make rational choices. Best to err on the side of caution. Pessimists are seldom disappointed. IMHO, Regards, SBK

Hi SBK, No problem. I've also posted your effusive congratulations to Callun from yesterday, naturally quoting in full. Looks to have gone down well. ;o) A potentially massive week ahead. ANTO year results on 14th. Brexit possibly triggered on same day & good chance of US rate rises a day later. Will be interesting to see any effect US rate rises have on copper & related miners like ANTO. Despite all that, JD feeling slightly more self-confident after a veritable battering here in recent months, largely thanks to more success via trading real shares. Latest being BT (VG gains there booked) & seeing active buys in VOD steadily rising. Only question is whether to also take something from VOD before Brexit triggered, or hang on a bit closer to VOD's 214 gap. Will see how Monday goes before deciding. - Regards.

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.
