Hi SBK, I was also rather disappointed to see ANTO drop with such vigour, having sat with my finger on the 870 sell button for a good few minutes yesterday morning. Unfortunately I had a few FTSE shorts and misc other short positions and so wavered and lost the opportunity. This is were SOI with his blitzkrieg approach seems to so often win through. Sadly I neither have the ability, energy or resources to mount that sort of campaign. For me, today was most a SOH exercise. I did note that my rather dull lower risk /income based investment seemed to have a rather good day. I think that was due to a risk off' mood in the market. It is way to early to say but maybe the market is getting a bit weary and needs a good summer recess.

Hi SBK, I'm out of BARC entirely, but similar thoughts here re Staley, despite his reputation. This latest stunt of trying to identify a whistleblower just confirms to many what a rotten outfit BARC still is. That perception only reinforced. Even on the business side, some very mixed results. Divis cut again, staff bonuses remain high, parts of the business sold off to boost margins, but share price still below what it was when he took over. - BARC customer complaints consistently one of the highest over past few years. Many CEOs seem well over-rated. He's one. However, giving credit where it's due, you also get VG CEOs. Take David Potts at MRW's. In 2 years, totally transformed the business. Before he took over, MRW's seemed favourites for the next big casualty in the cut-throat retail sector. Now well ahead of TSCO's. Proof that a genuinely talented CEO who understands his business, can make a huge difference. - Regards.

O/T BARC: I feel it might be trying to reach 219 + by the end of Wednesday. After that it is a strong short until close Thursday. IMHO, SBK P.S. I never thought much of this Staley guy. I find it amazing that CEOs of major companies can find the time to get involved in childish games such as trying to find out who has been telling tales. They should get on with working on behalf of their customers and shareholders and earn their bloated pay.

I opened a short at 867.6 earlier. I now see that soi has started one at 864.1 The share price is now likely to head north for awhile. IMHO, SBK

SBK, Thanks, but so is Soi & even more so. I imagine certain less scrupulous players in Soi's position in final week might have waited & then placed their Comp entry closer to yours. ;o) But no surprise here that Soi isn't lacking in sportsmanship in keeping with his overall trading qualities & that he prefers to win on merit. More respect to him for that! One can never be entirely sure with ANTO, but probably a wise decision having a balance at these levels, which are quite high anyway. ANTO's highest close in recent times, 883.50 from 13/2. Intraday high, 905+. Unless copper sells off sharply to fill gaps below, seems a VG chance those highs could be revisited as we approach ex-divi by end of month. But as we know, with ANTO that's far from guaranteed. I too will be away most of tomorrow from late morning onwards, which may be a blessing if UKX continues rising sharply again. - Regards & GL.

You are a gent Jack. ANTO: I closed my 850 short for a meager 3 points. It was holding too strong. Eventually I re-shorted at 861. Again I felt the uplift too robust and closed for a couple of points. My ANTO account now in balance. I have the feeling, as does Damps, that the results are the driver right now. So, I aim to sit it out and wait. I'm out tomorrow morning. That is probably a good thing. Regards to all during this most important week. IMHO, SBK

Thanks Jack. I would of course do the same for you. Reckon that you are a bit naive about that ruthless mountebank soi though. From the tone of his last post on the Barc BB, however, he sounded a bit burned out. Needs a rest starting right now. IMHO, SBK P.S. My effusive congratulations on your COMP win this week.

Hi SBK She plays Chopin well. Lots of feeling in every note. Fair guess that she probably likes the beauty of some of Leonard Cohen's music & Joy Division, too. By the by, to give you a fair chance in last week of this season's Comp, I'm willing to enter you fairly late on Sunday evening. Obviously by the 9 pm deadline as GoS is known to be fairly strict on that. I think Soi's a fair-minded gentleman at heart, he relishes any challenge & he won't mind this at all. In fact, I'd do the same for Soi if he was in your place. - Regards & take care.

I think Damp Seaweed has got a real handle on how to trade this share now. He takes a calm, cautious and measured approach. Enters a position only when there is a substantial margin of safety. Annoying really. This share is extremely frustrating gives me a headache and drives me up the frigging wall! IMHO, SBK

soi, I left them running. They are still there. I intend to leave that short open all the way down to the 835 area at least then maybe close them if the downward force is strong. Closing them now would be great in the long run but it would eat up current margin, especially if it goes much further north. IMHO, Regards, SBK

Hi ANTO strong now, I`ve closed a few positions but didn`t quite think it would head to 860 +.Am overall net short. Did you close your longs or left them running ? Yes, BARC looks like a long. GL soi

Hi Soi & SBK, As ANTO opened 849, small gap from yesterday's close 840. Fillable enough. Beyond that, with copper prices all over the place recently, hard to say. Though copper also has big gaps below. Re Comp: certainly this season I've been distracted by wishfulness re one notably mistimed BARC short. Subconsciously, that's skewed my weekly selections to the downside. Next season will be very different. I mean to go on as I finish, hopefully with at least podium places in final 2 weeks. ;o) - Regards & GL. JD off out for the day.

Actually, I added a short @ 850.1 soon after the opening bell. Strategic placing. Will come good in time. Copper strong ATM - hoping for some slippage there. IMHO, SBK P.S. Long on Barc now: need the share price to rise strongly before Friday close.

Hi soi, No time like the present. I would drop everything if I were you and get a flight to Santiago. Make holiday of it; stay off the internet for a fortnight and just chill. The Andes probably get in the way of internet signals anyway. As you say Chilean wine is good and much underrated. I noted today on the Barc BB Eadwig implying that I was having kittens regarding the COMP this week. For one thing, they would be cubs as we Tigers have, not kittens. He also posted up a crude MA chart which had no meaning. Typical from someone who can't even drive Windows 10 or copy a hyperlink. Anyway, it is obvious that a 10 point+ rebound is on the cards this week, with 3 days left. If only because the current top 3 are: JD, 2o and Eadwig! There is no way such a motley crew can occupy my zone of influence for long. ANTO: I would like to see 850 and clear my longs at 834 & 835. Then just hang short for a long time or until I'm back in overall profit at about £8. (B/E 810ish). That is the plan... IMHO, SBK

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
