Hi Eadwig, Thanks & you're welcome. No doubt I speak for many in my appreciation. Good research alone is time-consuming, even if experiences helps one to better identify the gist. That's without actively trading as well. Doing both isn't easy for any individual. Hence, great value of shared info on BBs. It's also easy to become discouraged when things go against & rewards delayed by far longer than anticipated. Many people need a break. We've all been there. I did exactly 62 small SB trades on Wednesday alone. A HUGE number for me, but of no value to others as no time to post anything. All scalping indices both directions. Last one just before 9 pm. I couldn't do that most days, even if I wanted to. But I emphasise, these were small lower-risk trades. I hold much bigger SB positions underwater. To get maximum rewards from markets, it really needs a full-time approach. For eg. as Soi adopts. But focusing more so on basic TA actually saves time from a day-trading perspective. Not least as markets can be sentiment-driven & irrational, whilst fundamental news is more important for mid-to-long term traders & investors. It's unfortunate for longer-term holders of NXT or any other retail stocks with Brexit ahead, et al, & yet to fully play out. That's one of a few sectors that really can't avoid greater challenges for the foreseeable future. I'm sure we'll see more focus on cost-cutting & moving more business online where possible. I agree, that'll be key to any strong recovery of many retailers future profits. Sadly, that'll also entail job-losses elsewhere. My trading approach just days before Brexit trigger remains as before: not that there haven't been temptations to buy again, but I'm 100% in cash with real shares. Key thing: I need to exit bigger SB positions sooner than later, even if I bolster my account via small-stake scalping. My bigger issues can't be delayed indefinitely. I probably won't buy anything more until after EU convene on 29th April, as they try to agree a collective response to PM May's A50 trigger on 29th March. Presumably, meaningful talks won't start until at least well after April. Maybe even as late as June has been mentioned by EU sources. Considering that even 2 full years after A50 triggered is seen by many as nowhere near enough time, it's hard to be very optimistic. No trade deal leaves reliant on more expensive WTO rules & that'll be another clear negative for much of UK PLC. Interesting times ahead & no doubt some good trading opportunities. Ah, the Comp: for first time in its history, I sit back & enjoy proceedings with total neutrality. Never been in the running this time & I'm sure that my 2 BARC shorts (one well underwater) has more to do with that failure than even irrational, Trump-driven markets. ;o) Regards.

Hi Eadwig, Thanks & credit to you for noticing any anomalies on said presentation. I'm surprised iii didn't get back to you, even if from mere oversight, but I still prefer iii to here for other reasons, including layout & the posters I know well. Once SBK re-registers with iii, my visits here will again diminish. :o) By the by, it's not gone unnoticed by me & others on iii that you've also done excellent, in-depth research on a fair number of sectors & equities. That input always appreciated. Some of that presumably would otherwise escape most casual traders attentions. Same reasons here for forgoing Level 2. I recall when I traded via eTrade that it was very useful seeing live trade orders come through on my screen, especially bigger buys & sells. However, I'd need to guarantee I could be trading full-time again without increasing obligations away from my desk to justify it. That's far from the case right now & for the foreseeable future. - Regards & GL. Catch you on iii later.

PS, I was in the local convenience store yesterday, and you can buy a pay as you go sim card, with new number, for a quid here, and no registration process at the checkout as far as I can tell, and you even get some internet data time for that too. I like those off the shelf pay-as-you-go sims. you can check through all the available numbers and pick one you can actually remember when someone asks you for your mobile number. Eadwig

Hi Eadwig, AFAIK, posters highlighted in blue are paying subscribers with access to L2 & ADVFN's other services. Posters in black are, presumably, a bunch of tight-fisted skinflints who'll make do with what whatever they can get for free. A bit harsh, but probably not far off the truth for someone like JD. ;o) Though in truth, I don't trade anywhere near enough to justify regular fees for L2, though I've used it previously when with eTrade. - Regards.

bionicdog, "If you are not blue , it will block it" Good tip, I'll remember that. I'll just think about my FTSE 100 shorts and I'll be so blue I'll be able to paste images as well as include links ... which is what I tried first. I'm feeling completely unvalidated. How did you get blue?

Well that was amusing! Eadwig is Polish Irish you know. And was brought up in Yorkshire where they are "strong int arm and thick int 'ed". He used to work in computers in the days when they were steam- powered or driven by water mills. IMHO, SBK Like to see ANTO down to <816 tomorrow and Barc up to 229 and no more. TIA.

Seriously , it depends where the link is from. If you are not blue , it will block it from many other sources. You can get round it by changing one of the "t"s to a capital. Don't tell them I told you though.

Antofagasta PLC forms bearish "Head and Shoulders Top" chart pattern Mar 07, 2017 Recognia has detected a "Head and Shoulders Top" chart pattern formed on Antofagasta PLC (ANTO:LSE). This bearish signal indicates that the stock price may fall from the close of 781.00 to the range of 666.00 - 687.00. The pattern formed over 31 days which is roughly the period of time in which the target price range may be achieved, according to standard principles of technical analysis. Tells Me: The price seems to have reached the end of a period of "distribution" at the top of a major uptrend; the break down through support signals a reversal to a new downtrend. The Head and Shoulders Top is created by three successive rallies in the price following a significant uptrend. The highest high (head) is in the middle, flanked by two lower highs (shoulders) at roughly the same level. Volume is highest as the price makes the first two rallies, then diminishes through the right shoulder. Finally volume surges as the price closes below the neckline (drawn between the two lows) to confirm the reversal. This bearish pattern can be seen on the following chart and was detected by Recognia proprietary pattern recognition technology. hxxps://api.recognia.com/api/securitychart?iid=137329208&;eid=UKvwmeAAQw4wANgABAACAAAD6CQg&wid=575&skn=blue&amp;ucl=T&lcl=T&amp;iem=T&iel=I&amp;cst=B&cht=price:tall,volume:short&zom=tighttrend&amp;tid=93w4PN6LrdcJc589mi%2Bu2WE9Pyn09PnnpPd0v0MMhGkfh0BV9lZwv0G0x3v8hcdKc4LTN3RFY%2Boj93cnSRT0LDRxSKqtxapdr%2B2qUHZ8DCxTmC5I%2FysAVTfAVsLnvRZ3WL0NIJCcoI2KPEdF%2FR1SzA%3D%3D&lang=en&mnt=

I too sense an end to the Escondida strike from the newsflow. One would then expect the price of copper to slip given revived production hitting the market in the foreseeable. But it may be that if BLT has struck a deal advantageous to the company this will rub off on other Chilean miners. Then with their usual perversity Cu and ANTO will rise. The likelihood of the above happening is bolstered by my short positions. Sigh. IMHO, SBK

Closed small loss after good profit?? ?? Clearly. I'm misunderstanding the situation. Ex div is way away. It's a case of "I'll be back". But for now it's "get to the chopper"

SBK, Naturally with enough short positions here (& UKX) & markets selling off, I've had a half-decent day. Just a sense of relief, no more. US also looking a bit jittery past few days, on top of today's sharp drop so far. But nothing taken for granted until the real proper fear enters markets over Brexit & Trump's bluster coming to little, et al, that's if he's not impeached sooner than later. Even if it takes a few weeks for markets to turn decisively, so be it. But market cycles tend to repeat & this latest bull run seems based at least partly on pure BS. - Regards & GL.

I just came to hide here for awhile. The ANTO chart is just too violent to watch... I know what to do at every turn but know that if I do it it won't work. If this share was human it would be committed to an asylum. IMHO, SBK

So the chaos begins 29th March. Personally, I think PM May has set the wrong date. 1st April, aka "All Fools Day", might be more apt. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-39325561 Quote from link: "Ahead of Mrs May naming the date European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker was quoted in German newspaper Bild saying the UK may have to abandon hopes of getting a trade deal if it did not agree to the term offered by the EU. These terms may include a £50bn "divorce bill" and Mr Juncker said Brexit could bring the remaining 27 members closer together: "They will all see from the UK's example that leaving the EU is a bad idea." - Hmmm. Effect on UKX? Today a 3rd successive record closing high. It seems the more economic uncertainty & chaos the UK faces, the higher the FTSE 100 goes. The occasional sheer madness of markets rarely better exampled! - Regards & GL.

The main thing about shorts on the FTSE 100 is that it hasn't really been volatile. Occasionally intraday, but you have to be there to take advantage and I just haven't had the time available to me. I have two WTI longs, but that Baker Hughes rig count on Friday was big. +14 if I remember correctly, twice last week's figure. Even so, the price will bounce around, and its only a matter of time until Saudi start talking it up again. They have been actively talking it down, a strange state of affairs, but they want to punish non-compliers - Iraq and Russia basically. I'm not sure either care. Russia has budgeted for oil at $40 this year and who can blame Iraq for getting as much revenue as possible? Especially when Russia and Saudi have fought a proxy war via Isis in the middle of their already ravaged country. Saudi should make the most of this. I'm sure once they float their national oil biz they wont be able to manipulate the oil market anymore without it being punished by the regulatory bodies of whatever exchange its on. Thy're going to want a solid looking oil price going forward to underpin that float - estimated for next year. And Saudi have always held OPEC together, so could well be the end of an era. No one seems to be able to give me an answer when I ask if any other nationalised oil company is floated AND its country takes part in OPEC price manipulation. The plan is I get some time to myself today. Any drop back towards 7400 will see me long on the FTSE. It might not even take a drop. If I luck at the charts and MAs for a while, it looks set to just keep going up. End of the tax year is approaching fast, I've got my profit in cash whatever happens, unless its something really drastic in very specific sectors in the next 13 trading days. The amazing thing is with a such a large position in shorts underwater, my overall worth still keeps rising. I've had some unexpected catalysts this year - and made a few good calls too - but it's hard to lose in markets like this, truth be told. It can't last - not past the end of the year, anyway. Eadwig. PS Who's already planning for the two last weeks of the COMp being 4 day trading weeks? Hahahahaha. Me and JD, we're very chilled about it ... Eadwig [Leans back and lights big spliff ...]
