Hi Interesting SBK Chile often gets high ratings for expat living, as does Ecuador. Not been to either. Climate looks great, wine from there good also Long way to go for a trial visit. ATB soi

Here is a good place for soi to keep warm in the winters: hxxp://en.climate-data.org/location/2064/ And keep his finger on the pulse of matters. Looks like ANTO going south for awhile right now. Should pick up though towards the results date. IMHO, SBK

Hi Soi, Thanks for taking time to clarify things, but no problem here. That's what I figured. Now if SBK had done the same... well, I might have thought otherwise. ;o) All the best with trading FTSE, ANTO, VOD, et al! I've been day-trading BT (long again), RBS short & LLOY long. Little added risk, which suits me. Tempted by IMG & going long, but decided against it as I really have very little idea about the long-term damage there from today's bad news re Apple dropping them. May re-add a 2nd long with VOD soon. As that stake would be bigger, I'd post it live on respective BB on iii. - Regards & GL!

Hi Interesting posts, been busy mostly with FTSE scalps. Jack , my profuse apologies, didn`t realise I`d left out your entry, I happened to be reading here and spotted SBK`s entry request whilst on hold, yet again with my main UK bank and started typing his entry but delayed a while before posting as I actually managed to get in touch with a human being rather than an automated message menu. Not that it did any good. Damps, appreciate your view on Spain/Tenerife, been to the former many years ago, never to the latter. I`m just trying to put back up plans in place in case I tire of Thailand or it changes for the worse. Just somewhere that has a decent climate and infrastructure OK for me, simply can`t stand cold weather. Would like to be nearer to the UK, here is a long way from " home ". ATB soi

Hi SBK & Eadwig, Points acknowledged. Briefly re Comp: considering next week is last one this season, I'd keep squinting closely re Soi. He evidently forgot I was no longer in contention as instead of deleting your entry, he blooming deleted mine. ;o) Trust no-one! Re Gibraltar comments: I never liked (Lord) Michael Howard. Always thought him a most slippery, untrustworthy politician. Whereas Michael Fallon strikes me as another lightweight. But I never thought either of them could be so daft as well. I've rarely heard anything more embarrassing from UK politicians. Worthy of Trump, which takes some doing. Other matters re Brexit: I agree it looks like all downhill from here for a while. A lot of UK more disunited. Every time I read, "the harder the Brexit, the better!" I picture either selfish, elderly people enjoying triple-lock pension protections, or else young & economically extremely naive. Either can make one despair. As economist Danny Blanchflower said, quote: "With the Brexit vote, the old declared war on the young, and the young should respond by giving them the middle finger.” I think achieving a truly unified UK during this ineffably complex Brexit process, as Theresa May hopes for, is sheer fantasy. Instead, some very hard times ahead & more disunity. Regards to both!

JD, agreed, SAG and Pat can't win now except by scoring highly and soi and SBK missing out on points. I was in a similar situation last season (or season before) and so was forced to go extreme with my predictions to give myself a tactical chance. If you have a long way to catch up in just 2 weeks its no good being spot on if one of your opponents is just two or three places away. SBK obviously doesn't realise this, having lost his nerve completely with 2 weeks to go and still in with a shout. soi will walk it. Strange season for me, I think I've never before predicted the correct *direction* of the price so often, yet podiums have eluded me, often by fractions of a percent, but it makes a big difference with the scoring system. Haven't read the BARC Bb very much of late, often missing out whole threads due to time constraints - and a few people rambling on about barely coherent stuff (like I can talk). Sounds like I should skip it for a few more days given the comments above. The whole Brexit issue continues to cause divisions, it seems to me, perhaps worsening rather than being smoothed over, and any attempt at serious discussion very quickly has antagonistic language introduced. Probably in an attempt to distract from the facts. Or perhaps it has just become the new way. If it lasts much longer it will become part of the make-up of the culture permanently, if it hasn't already. I'm back in the UK in a couple of weeks, and I'm finding myself looking forward to trips home less and less as a consequence of the above.

Thanks to you and also to soi who posted up my COMP entry at almost the same time. I did squint hard though to check that soi hadn't changed my choice somehow, say from 227.75 to 127.75. In fact I ought to go back and check it again. Anyway, its good news that we may be going to war with Spain over Gibraltar. These bad hombres need to be taught a lesson. And it may lead to the Government reversing its proposed cuts the The Royal Marines, seeing as it was us that captured the Rock in the first place in 1704. I may rejoin if we are also going to invade the mainland; I want to be based in Marbella. Tax havens like Gibraltar need to be defended at all costs. Tenerife could be a bad move for soi if we end up bombing it. Mind you it is a bit suspicious that only last week he said he might go there: is a a spy I wonder? Maybe one agent of an advanced party of our SOE saboteurs? Hmmn, I wonder if that is why Eadwig is in Poland? He might be part of our planning team for when we invade Russia? I do wonder though why GB is sending forces to defend Romania and Latvia when theses nationalities are widely despised in the UK, views encouraged by the right wing Press? I guess they are just going to be launchpads for our forces for when we march on Moscow. I just hope for one thing: our politicians such as Michael Howard join in the forthcoming battles, in the front line showing us their true leadership capabilities. IMHO, SBK

Hi SBK, No problem & GL to both you & Soi. Hard to see anyone else in serious contention this season as, with only 2 weeks left, both SAG & Pat need to do very well during both weeks to make up ground. Can't rule it out, but seems unlikely that they'll get ahead of both of you. May the best man win, etc. Re iii & a few deniers of Brexit empowering racial hatred: much agree. I think some people either lack empathy for those from certain backgrounds, or else they simply don't want to acknowledge the kind of environment Brexit has clearly added to. Frankly, I think this kind of thing will only get worse before it gets better once the Brexit talks come to serious loggerheads & the general mood turns uglier. People are being whipped up by nationalist fervour & such regressive stuff rarely ends well for any of us. I'm posting less as increasingly drawn away from desk & otherwise focused on SB screens (some good short-term trading opps taken with BT & OML last week). No doubt more extreme volatility ahead this week & well beyond. - Regards & GL.

DS, A hookah is one of those shared pipes (usually with flavoured tobacco in it) that are pretty ubiquitous throughout the middle east, including Iran. I have a cousin based in Tenerife. To my eternal shame he is a professional Elvis impersonator. Talking of spreads and costs, I should be selling my 3x Long on WTI crude for a profit today - however, the move in GBP-USD Fx has also been multiplied by 3 and I think I'll probably have to take a loss. WTI is potentially on the verge of a price breakdown, and I daren't leave it open through the weekend. Lots of talk of cutting the size of the Royal Marines on the BBC today, SBK, due to the £10Bn shortfall in the defence budget. Mind you, someone on right now saying that we have record low levels of unemployment. So, they obviously have a lot of people with no idea what they're talking about on these days.

Hi Damps, With SBs, no fees at point of trade due to wider spreads, but after that it all depends on what kind of SBs one holds. I use DFTs. Very similar to CFDs. They have fairly narrow spreads. In fact, prices close to actual market prices. However, these incur small holding charges every day, weekends & Bank Holidays included. They mount up, but are very manageable & for more experienced traders, a few scalping trades more than cover those costs. Quarterly expiry SBs have wider spreads, but no daily costs. However, they either expire at a pre-set date limited to weeks or a few months, & a hit is taken; or else they're rolled over into the next quarter & any paper losses deducted from accounts, or profits are added. If holding losses, these expiry-date hits or rollover deductions can of course be substantial. So both types of SBs have pros & cons. Regards.

SBK, Have you thought about running an alternative comp on Advfn with a Thursday close ? ;)

I didn't know that there was no clear fees in SB. I have a number of CFD accounts. They charge ~0.1% to buy and sell. Perhaps naively, I'm assuming that the fees, in SB are built into the margin/spread ? I've got no idea what 'Hookah' is ?. Is it a more dodgy use of a Shisha. Now that was something I got a liking for in the Middle East. My son is currently based out of Tenerife. He is loving it at the moment, as he is very keen on watersports and in particular Kite surfing. It gets pretty blowy out there. I had thought about taking up residence for a while, but it can get to be quite a small place and it is quite a long way from everywhere else. Mainland Spain suits me fine. Good food, loads of history and temperate climate. I also like the Spanish, it seems they don't like Jean-Claude Juncker and more than I do. They think he is a German lackey, and they don't seem to like the German way of running the EU. Anyway I'll keep politics off this site as it does seem to be pervading everywhere else

Eadwig, I guess when you are that stoned Cricket seems like a fast game? Right now I want ANTO into the 830s to start shorting it. I want Barc to get back to 228. I also want to go to Thailand and hire a big fast car and cruise the streets of a coastal town. IMHO, SBK

Hi Damps, Soi has answered your queries for me. Brexit: 2 years for a change of mind to happen. It is a long time in politics anything can occur. Now what frustrates me is that soi started buying ANTO longs today in the top 7s and bottom 8s like a dervish with no apparent indicators to support this. And yet he soon came up trumps. Must have a sonic screwdriver, a light saber or some oracle gadget? Or maybe he is on drugs that actually allow one to perceive the truth in the psychedelic world of the markets? I note that he said yesterday that ANTO was his most successful play with 1000s of wins in the past 3 years. I still maintain that I put him on to it on the Barc BB, suggesting that he would appreciate its volatility. I'm still waiting for my 2.5% commission. Could be a long wait, I suspect. Might get some cheap flight to the Canary Isles one day for me and my mates Frank Repo and Thuggie Dougie. IMHO, SBK

Hi A sad day, seems rather final the UK leaving the EU. Scant consolation taking many pts from ANTO. DS SBK not the only one working both ways trading, yes it does get complicated but there are not any dealing charges with SB trades as I`m sure you know. I personally feel it is a very effective way of trading, having both long & short positions in the same instrument gives some protection against any sudden swings. IMO. Spain sounds nice, I`m already looking forward to Italy in about 3 months time. If I can find the time, wouldn`t mind visiting Tenerife, a potential winter alternative to Thailand which at times frustrates me. ATB soi

SBK, I really don't understand why you hold long and short positions in the same equity for any period. Does it not get confusing and complicated. And why pay 2 lots of dealing charges. Life is so much easier if you just play for one side at a time. You can still be fickle and switch on a whim. I suspect the problem is a reluctance to crystallise a loss ? DS Currently enjoying the Spanish sun and wondering if I can claim a right to stay ?. Also wondering if I need a visa to return to the UK.

SBK, So it starts. PM May triggered A50 tonight. Though some people never expected things to reach this stage, I know May was long-regarded by some with suspicion as a Machiavellian-type who was always a secret Brexiteer. She just didn't want to admit it during the EU Referendum & risk getting on the wrong side of Cameron in case Brexit lost. In this respect, by now pandering to the Tory right & grassroots support, she probably ensures she'll be PM in 2020. Though a Tory PM in 2020 isn't in any doubt due to the feebleness of the opposition, the Tory leader might have been. But as you say, there'll be a winners & losers. Most will lose. To the clear winners, we can also add the wealthy elite (Arron Banks & co) who bank-rolled Brexit. I'll be out most of tomorrow (maybe a blessing), so will catch up later. - All the best!

Hi Jack, I liked Kam too. I believe he was involved, in a heroic way, with the Langbar (the largest known fraud scandal in UK financial history), as was I. More on that another time. A50: tomorrow's winner will be... Vladimir Putin. And he deserves it, master strategist that he is: Won in Chechnya. Won in Crimea. Ukraine pending. Won in the USA. I've been musing that the "golden shower" accusation against Trump was not urination by females but a "leak" threat about a rainfall of money Donald got somet ime, somewhere. It was a convoluted threat. Won in Syria. And A50 is a winning hand too. The wedge between the EU states, with the most warlike of them, the UK being taken out. Clever boy. Mrs May, silly stooge. IMHO, Regards, SBK

Hi SBK, Thanks. Here's hoping those BARC shorts come good for you soon, self-interest aside. ;o) I have 2 BARC shorts, one well underwater, but not so heavily exposed as to be fazed. However, if I saw closer to 210, I may shut both for near B/E. Mostly to spring clean my SB account & gradually work towards a clean slate there. Reasons: so much up in the air with Brexit & the loon in the Whitehouse, extreme volatility liable to remain for ages yet. Soi's done well again & due credit to him, but as we appreciate, one also needs substantial resources to keep adding positions to more volatile stocks. You'll remember Kam from iii. He opened a leveraged BARC long at circa 240+. He added at least 11 more BARC longs. Lowest entry I recall was circa 200. BARC collapsed to 121+ lows & dear Kam not heard from since. I liked Kam. It was genuinely sad that he got a financial hammering, as many others did. But I was also mindful of one of his last comments about the heavy price of breaking his own rules by adding more positions than he normally would. I was lucky as I kept averaging down by buying real shares & had up to 6 tranches at one time. Sold the last one far too early, but did well overall. But all history now & the leveraged side continues to pose far greater challenges. I remain 100% in cash with real shares since selling my last VOD & BT shares earlier this month. No rush there & content to sit on sidelines until well into summer. Re A50: I share your take on it. Frankly, I feel very disheartened about tomorrow. Not least because of all the lies around Brexit. But also, all the gloating from petty-minded nationalists who continue demanding a "hard Brexit", only underscores how people of limited objectivity have been so easily led by populist right-wing media. Even though I firmly believe we'll have another EU Referendum with a very different outcome in my lifetime, so within 25 years, I still feel we could be facing at least a wasted decade or more of relative chaos. The very thought of that is quite depressing. - Regards.
