Yep, up 2%, +47p to 2376 a decent rise, and one day to go before 2Q19 results, and then what? We LTHs remain sanguine :-) In the meantime, as the 'shares in Treasury' approach 9%, should we expect a statement of intent? .

I did not mention watching Simon Reeve's USA program some weeks ago - he talked about most of the US infrastructure of roads and bridges etc having been constructed in the 1930-40's. There must be a huge amount in need of replacement...

There are a few resistance zones 'precious' has to overcome before returning to the dizzy heights of recent. The first 2316 which it reached this morning but has not yet broken above. The next is 2360 which may be a tougher nut to crack; it was a very strong support zone. If it can break through 2400 is next. The 'chunky' gap at 2444 might be described as a Breakaway Gap but it does not have the usual high volume associated with such a gap. It's also worth noting that the Daily chart shows that the share price remains in the rising trend range.

Q2 results to end Oct due out on 10th (Tues). US economy bumping along OK in the period albeit with manufacturing down, construction pretty much flat. UK still suffering from low investment. On recent record with the acquisitions and market share growth should give decent numbers, I guess the attention will be more on the outlook and in any case the share price reaction is often counter-intuitive. I am currently not holding, having offloaded in the recent strength. Never comfortable without a few AHT on the books so hoping for a chance to make a modest buy ahead of the results, Mr. Trump seems to be on the case.

An interesting day following Mr Trump saying he had no China trade-deal deadline and that, “in some ways, I think it’s better to wait until after the election if you want to know the truth. But I’m not going to say that, I just think that.” !!!!!!!! And he threatened to expand his trade war to what he called delinquent members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The share price dropped to an intra day low of 2277 before putting the brakes on and rising to 2280. So 2263 remains intact....for now. The volume over the past five days is interesting in that it has been below the daily average. Will there be a Santa Rally this year or has Scrooge laid down his marker......over to you Mr Trump.

Good day 2flat "I'm told you need a special tool shaped like bracke." ===================================================== LOL!!!! I read that 5 minutes ago and I'm still laughing!.....I've been called worse. "I cannot figure out why the price dropped to 1600" ==================================================== I can't remember what was occurring at the time but looking at the chart the share price had attempted to break above 2450 several times and failed. It's not unusual that when that occurs holders decide to 'cash in their chips'. It only needs some of the larger holders to set the ball rolling, the share price drops below a support zone and the stream of sells becomes a flood. Look where it was finally supported. Between December 2016 and August 2017 1600 was a major support zone. It completed a full reversal back to the level it had started from and then commenced the process all over again and look where it reversed this time, looks familiar doesn't it. If it's supported at 2300 it may try to break 2450 again. If it continues down a close below 2263 would be concerning. A close below the last major swing high from 2070 would be alarming. To those who think all of the above is a load of spherics no need to post I will take it as read.

Evening bracke I could not agree with you more. as you have pointed out my problem is identifying entry and exit points. I have found the 200 usually a good entry point but on the odd occasion I have been force to hold a little longer than expected . Your example meant I needed to hold from Oct 18 to June 19 .No great problem, in fact it was a buying opportunity . I cannot figure out why the price dropped to 1600, if anyone can put forward a theory I would be very interested. I have tried to use MAC D and RSI and have even played with with pitch forks but with very little success , I'm told you need a special tool shaped like bracke . So for entry I use the 200 day and exit when it looks to be peaking. With AHT its easy, short term investments may need to turn to medium term investments but for me patience has always been rewarded. Cheers

A retrace and then some. gap at 2323 from 22 November filled. 2300 for support?

Good day 2flat Yes I agree the share price does have 'chunky' ups and 'chunky' downs. The danger of a drop to the Daily SMA 200 is a failure to stop and continuation of the drop. If you view a two year chart the share price dropped to the Daily SMA 200 which supported and then rose on a couple of occasions. Previous to that the visits to the Daily SMA 200 did not stop, the share price continued below that level for a further few hundred more points. When it does drop to the Daily SMA 200 caution is needed before buying.

I have no idea what you are going on about - I use no indicators in my model as they are all backward looking so don't tell me anything and you can't predict where any share is going to go. This share is breaking out above a rising trend with accelerating forecast earnings - I hold until this situation changes. People make it far too complicated imo

Afternoon bracke I fear this apoplectic holder you describer is long dead. Anyone holding AHT long term is made of sterner stuff. With a share price that oscillates in a wide band (35%) for no apparent reason .They need to be able hang loose . So far in my investing memory it has always rewarded the holders eeer eventually. I still live in hope. Cheers

Good day 2flat "now waiting for the next visit to the 200 day.As always I live in hope." =========================================================================== WHAT!!! The Daily SMA 200 is currently 2150! The mere thought of such a catastrophic fall is likely to cause all manner of apoplexies to holders. You've got to break it to them more easily eg. 'There's a possibility of a retrace to the Daily SMA 50'. Then when it drops to that level you can post 'Possibility of a visit to the Daily SMA 200'. If you are feeling particularly sympathetic you could point out that the Daily SMA 200 is rising. The 'stage' approach causes less alarm and prepares them for the worse. It's currently supported at 2360 which has been a major support zone previously. If it fails to hold there is that gap at 2323 to fill.

Morning All DavROs Surprised at you conclusions with regarded to AHT. Being a quant trader and AHT such a volatile share. I would have expected you to use you expertise to determine entry and exit points. I tend to buy and hold ,but when the 200 day SMA is near I find I have a compulsion to buy, tending to sell at the next convenient high. AHT seems to hit the 200 day SMA about 2-4 times a year . So far it has worked for me. Have just top slice above 2400 and now waiting for the next visit to the 200 day. As always I live in hope. Cheers

Dav I don't predict either. I use charts to assess probability which works for me. I know fenners uses financial fundamentals. I presume you base your buys and sells on some sort of criteria.

All Time Closing High of 2450 but no Intraday High which remains at 2461 achieved on 28/9/2018. No proper retest of 2400 just a straight rise back to the early November high. A retrace would seem likely if only to 2412.
