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.

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 ...]

Hi UT trade hard to understand but basically it it the level at which the most number of trades could potentially be closed. It`s almost meaningless and the last few trades during cash open are more significant. Re, FTSE 100, yes short positions are hard work and have been for a while. I`m 3 x short 2 x long as at Friday`s close. Limit close set on 1 short, in case it drops on tonight`s open which I am unlikely to see, then nothing on other 4 positions. Similar WTI, was trading it mostly short Friday, 22 scalps and fortunately ended with 2 x short 2 x long remaining. So whatever WTI does overnight, I do not have to worry and can start trading it again Monday, likely early. Important to me with either index or commodity trades to be more or less hedged over the week end. Being exclusively short or long over a w/e risky, a big move against you and Monday can be a headache. Been there. I feel the FTSE should drop back but I`ve thought that a while and it isn`t dropping yet. WTI now for me just an ultra short term trading instrument. April & May may provide opportunities to exit short exposure on FTSE. Net short on ANTO. Yes, house builders strong,I`m net short PSN, could have done without BKG rising 6 % Friday and pulling up the sector. All above refers to SB trades. GL soi

I did the same on Google Finance (except they have a 2 minute ticker) and it came back with almost exactly the same result. I know that isn't exactly how the UT works, but I messed about with it previously in more volatile times and found that it tended to work out pretty closely. You could more or less draw an average line by eye through the days chart and get something close to the UT most weeks. Sometimes it seemed wildly out, but the last 3 weeks it has been ridiculously close to the closing price - even when the closing price has altered radically in the last half hour compared to the rest of the day's movements. It definitely isn't normal behaviour. But then I've read the definition of an uncrossing trade many times in the past, and can't honestly pretend I understand it. By the time I get to the end of the paragraph I've forgotten what was at the beginning ... either that or woken up several hours later with my face stuck by drool to the keyboard. On to less serious matters, I'm considering hedging my FTSE 100 shorts with a long or two next week. Despite verging on article 50, a failed budget (where is that cash going to come from now it isn't coming from the self-employed?), inflation going mad, wages in real terms going backwards again and the BofE having one vote to hike rates, even the housebuilders are on the up again. 5 FTSE 100 shorts in and I'm averaging 16% down. When I take my yearly profits out at the end of the tax year, I'll be starting my next year with that position being equivalent to being around 14% of my overall trading portfolio. Quite a handicap to to start the year with! I need about a 300 point drop just to break-even. I'm hoping many people decide to sell in May this year ... I can't imagine what kind of political upheaval would be required to actually take the wind out of the sales of the index at the moment. It seems the weaker the GBP gets, the more the top 25 of the FTSe, that make up about two thirds of the index and who mostly earn in USD or other currencies just get stronger. Bad news out of China with a falling oil price at the same time might do it (HSBA, RDSA, RDSB, BP, STAN, RIO, BLT, GLEN would all take a sharp drop) - until one of them gets boosted up with a bid from abroad. As JD said on the BARC board, quoting Milton Keynes, 'the markets never do as you want them to'. I paraphrase. I think he said something about concrete cows too. TTFN P.S. New German car? You must be doing ok with the spread bets! Or is it an Opel? I hope its reliable, spare parts will cost you a fortune given a few more months.
