Mr Trumps tweets are worth a fortune to those who know what he's going to tweet. When the market falls he pulls it back up with tweets that the tariff talks are going well and nearly at agreement. Then when it suits he tweets the Chinese want to renegotiate what has previously been agreed and he will increase tariffs this Friday. Of course the market loves the volatility. From the close on Friday to the futures low yesterday was nearly 600 points. It provides an indication of the likely result of a failure to agree the tariffs. Given the above it's not surprising that the share price failed to 'hold on'. Under normal circumstances the first support zone is in the low 2000 but...........I suspect 'events' will either send it back up to 2200 + or down to maybe even 1700. We are in the lap of the gods or more accurately in the hands of Mr Trump, what a terrible thought!

I have updated the chart at 56731. Yesterday's above average volume took the share price down to the bottom of the bull flag which coincided with a previous strong resistance zone, it is hoped that it proves as strong a support. A close below the support zone would be unfortunate. Yes Mr Drabble has done an excellent job............apart from the buybacks.

Amongst the directorate changes in today's RNS 'Ashtead confirms that Brendan Horgan has today succeeded Geoff Drabble as Chief Executive. Geoff has stepped down from the Board and will retire from the Group on 30 November 2019.' I'm sure many posters here past and present will agree that Geoff has done an amazing job, and wish him well in his retirement. Thanks Geoff! .

Is the latest price action a bull flag or does it flatter to deceive? AHT DAILY
