Theres a news flag for this today but no news that I can find

High NHB been away. All I do is back date the Cin trades page, this is possible only back into middle of August. Buys have outnumbered sells on the last three days by about 12k so my figures suggest an overhang since mid aug of about 48k. Of course I dont know what the mm holding was before, but my impression has been that as the price is so sensitive to buys and sells the mms kept a very small stock. Since August they seem to have been building a modest position. Anyway If they have a run on the back of any news it will be interesting to watch the volumes and price movements, the latter could be violent as the market cap of this co is so small.

I've been in these for a while as well and have been suprised by the brutality of the MM's latest walk down. After such a steep fall it is hard not to get paranoic but like you I'm inclined to think there is no more to it then illiquidity. May I ask you how you go about keeping a book on MM holdings as you describe it?


High there clueless, yes i am still in these i have 10k so feeling a bit sorry for myself last week. I have kept a book on MM holdings over the last month and a half, and reckon they have about 60k in hand. We have been expecting news on the third investment for some time now. There was a cryptic posting on e-trade about six weeks ago which sounded interesting. The chairman tells us that we will all have heard of the next candidate(good or bad who knows). I rang him last week and was told that his boffins were still number crunching but that he expected things to go ahead. The MMs have basically walked it up on very little volume and have retrenched on equally small quantities. A great time to join the party in my view.

Anyone still following these
Looking quite cheap at the moment perhaps?

McMacka still interested?
Spoke to chairman about third investment that is to be announced any day soon, he's just back from hols, they are still in the final stages of negotiation, but he expected it to go through. MMs seem to be on the hunt for stock, very little volume tho. They emerged as having something to do with a new e-security firm (5 group ? ) about to have a new round of funding before eventual float EVC have a bigger slice (long article about this co in papers see various EVC threads) . I asked the chairman was this there new baby. he equivocated " not exactly". I think CIN is in view of todays jolly climate could be a sick squidder. Toodlepip. Capn.B

* Platform Becomes Faster And Easier: 10 Languages Introduced

* Building Of Global Trade Point Network Begins In Germany

* Revenue Starts To Flow

* Time Magazine Picks Company As One of "Europe's 50 Hottest Tech Stocks"

City of London PR Group Plc, reports today that its associate,,
which operates Europe's largest and the world's fastest-growing online
Business Bulletin Board System bringing buyers and sellers together, is making
further substantial advances. Limited celebrates its first birthday this month with nearly
60,000 businesses using the eight-month old site and four new initiatives
taking place:

* It relaunches its eight month old site today in a Super Vertical format so
that is faster and much more user-friendly by being split into 23 main
industry e-Marketplaces which are further divided into 166 sub-industry
categories. This allows users to directly access their industry of choice, to
post, search and view relevant trade leads without moving site.

* The site's introductory page will now appear in 10 languages.

* It has signed its first European Trade Point Network agreement - with a
German company - and is negotiating with several other organisations as it
pushes ahead with plans to establish a global network connecting countries all
over the world to the trading hub;

* It is now rolling out its revenue model with income streams planned from
fees and subscriptions and value added services, commissions from third party
service vendors, licence fees and royalties, commissions from content
exchange, and lastly, online media advertising where revenue has started. has been identified in the 19 June edition of Time Magazine, in
its Special Report "Europe's 50 Hottest Tech Firms", as one of the top three
European B2B websites with the biggest potential. A pioneer company of the
new economy, ECeurope is "unique in what it does and, in terms of trading
leads posted, is ahead of the pack", states the magazine, which used sources
such as Credit Suisse First Boston, Durlacher, E-challenge, Europe Unlimited,
Forrester, Gartner, Goldman Sachs, IDC and Ovum.

COLPR, the London listed financial public relations and investment company,
effectively owns 49.9p.c. of


Last month alone a total of 14,259 business adverts (Trade Lead messages) were
posted onto the ECeurope site from small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs)
around the world. Mr. Jonathan Cutting,'s founder and MD says:
"The chief reason for the site's popularity is its simplicity - it takes only
a few minutes to place a trade message - and you can target any country or
region you like. Our main role is to introduce buyers and sellers to each
other, then let them do the talking conducting their business in traditional
manner offline. The easy-to-use trading environment suits the way SMEs do
business. They don't want to make large payments online: they want to
negotiate with clients just as they have done for centuries. eMarketplaces
are still in their infancy and users neither understand nor trust the web
enough to put their money online.

"The site appeals to businessmen that are used to more traditional forms of
marketing, such as placing adverts with trade magazines. The Bulletin Board
offers the same type of function, only now it is free, instantaneous and
reaches a global audience, allowing SMEs to do business on a world-wide scale
previously denied due to the high cost of global advertising and marketing.

"By going Super Vertical, users can make more-specific searches than when the
site had just one 'platform', and users can also see quickly what industries
are included," he adds.

Establishing country Trade Points would push the concept ahead further and
help users even more.
"All Trade Points will be interconnected in an internet-based trade network
controlled by The network will span the world and allow
business users, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, to access
competitive European and global market trade-related information and services,
making trade between companies much more efficient," says Mr Cutting.

The Bulletin Board system was first adopted by the Emerging Markets because of
its simplicity. Until recently, he said, most investment houses and analysts
had concentrated on the complex US business models featuring secure on-line
trading. Now realisation is setting in of the global pull of the simpler
models. "Since 1993, SMEs have voted with their fingers by clicking into
this type of B2B marketplace ahead of more complex models".

ECeurope is attracting growing advertising, as page views total over 750,000 a
month. Membership has moved to over 20,000 (although a total of 58,000
businesses use the site) with users staying on site for an average of 14
