I didn't realise I was being condescending, I never meant to be EJ - I simply asked a question. Most people become emotional about their trades.....which is exactly why technical analysis works. I hope you are wrong in your interpretation of the chart, but only for my gain. Thanks for the support Opto :)

Erogenous Jones 28 Nov'13 - 08:23 - 5526 of 5526 0 0 Ws, please do not be so condescending. Charts tell part of the story. My interpretation is that the share price is rangebound in MY reading of the chart. I will never trouble this thread again. ==================================================================== EJ, don't get upset so easily..it's discussion and opinions on here. Views have to conflict on the 'odd occasion' Keep smiling opto :-))

You won't see 260 again, unless something extreme and untoward occurs. Can you read charts EJ? 270+ and rising is the support level at the moment, with 360 being the next resistance level. Good Luck

EJ, I can't see it being range bound as it's been in an uptrend from early October, but it does get a bit tiresome in its odd movements. I can understand you selling out...I came very close to doing it myself today but the 10p rise tempted me to stay put, I thought it was too big a move to be just normal market book keeping...wrong again! opto

Rangebound, I suggest. But hey ho, I am not a trader and sold yesterday for a modest profit. I see better opportunity for capital growth elsewhere.

Well we just nudged above 300 for a few minutes, we need to settle above that then perhaps we could see 320. I can't see a lot more barring a takeover until the profit margin improves...it seems very narrow to me. It would be interesting to see others views on this.

I have C&P'd this from Liberum Capital's website (I particularly like the first sentance) Our philosophy We need to add value to be of value. We believe that both corporate clients and institutional investors deserve a far higher level of service than is currently being offered in the market place. We are determined to earn a reputation for independence, integrity and excellence. We value our people and we endeavour to hire and retain people of the highest quality. We enforce a very high quality threshold across all aspects of our business. We will always ensure that we are structurally and operationally sound and will not partake in false economies. Our approach We adopt a simple approach to all areas of our business. Without our clients we could not exist. Therefore our primary focus is to add value to our clients at every opportunity. We recognise that Liberum Capital is a people business and so we endeavour to hire and retain people of the highest quality. We have over 145 highly talented people. Our culture is one of shared and collective responsibility. One way we achieve this is by being 100% staff owned. Despite our short corporate history we collectively have many years of experience and have already built a track record of delivering high quality products and advice which has led to profitable growth. We have a simple operating structure that allows us to react quickly and handle situations with a team approach.

Have they now made their money for today and closing down the books?

It is indeed a little strange. The price spiked up in the first hour and half on a few relatively small buys and has stuck in that region throughout the rest of the day regardless of the buy/sell ratio and a considerable number of sales. May be a larger trade will show later, but the spike hasn't really led to any significant sales.

37K buys 61K sells and price up 6p+ Doesn't make sense unless the MM's have a large buy order to fill.

That's been a bad day! but on the positive side if there is such a thing with Costain, the chart is still showing a higher high and a higher low...but it certainly is a difficult one this is!

Good finish today, next hurdle to clear is 300p then followed by the Apr 305p high. If that clears then Costain can become a different animal!

Technically it looks fairly positive to me (how many times have we been here?) We definitely need to move well into the 290's now..then maybe we could get some serious progress...oh gawd if only we could :-/

This stock is farcical, to drop from a morning high of 296 to 284 in the afternoon with an almost balanced book and small volume with no news in the offing it just beggars belief. I am likely to be seeking an exit soon! (then of course it will fly)
