I thought this was fairly clear for some time. There was a thread a little while ago about EB US & UK.

Just received this from Special Reserve. Looks like it could be handbags at dawn with PS2, Xbox and Gamecube slugging it out in the shops sooner than we thought ;-) GAMECUBE RELEASE CONFUSION MOUNTS - NOW WHAT ARE WE TO BELIEVE? In another baffling and frankly confusing statement, Nintendo revealed that the UK launch of the Gamecube will take place 'just a few weeks' after the start of February. A spokesperson stated that the Gamecube UK showcase would be held a few weeks after the Milia games show in Cannes on February 4-8. So now what are we to think? Will the Gamecube go into direct competition with the Xbox at the beginning of March? There are even rumours of the UK date being announced at Milia, but only time will tell...

the chart show two short term possibilities: - restoring the uptrend channel that was broken following the recent dip on result anouncing day. this will cause the stock to immediately resume its rise again. - at the same time note the possibility of the development of a new downtrending cannel developed over the past few days. this is a very narrow channel, but the possiblility of a downbreake through this downtrending channel should not be ruled out. such a break would see the stock loosing further ground to reach a consolidation phase before ultimately rising again. knowing this stock, the latter is a distinct possibility. in short, expect a period of unstability during which the stock may miander testing various waters before finally reaching solid support grounds from which its eventual take off will occur.

Hi just re-signed up to the premium bb. Used to post as Mark P, a handle a few games-sector chaps will recognise - but that handle was lost with an old mail address on here and at the time ADVFN couldn't do anything. I have posted as Qtz for some time on the freeBB. But since accusations have been flying ADVFN have managed to resurrect my old nickname using the same account-I've never used multiple handles on any board - I do still post as Henrick on HS - but that will also become 'Mark P' too soon with any luck - :o) Anyway, introductions over back to EBQ. Very interesting article on the cover of MCV Trade mag today 11/1/2002: ______ The name change of to Game group has more behind it than meets the eye - and has a great bearing on the long-term future of the group. 'Its Game vs EB...again' The newly-named GAME Group could find that its biggest obstavle to total Euro sipremacy is none other tha the orignal US owner of the Electronics Boutique name. Having impressed the City by announcing huge Christmas sales, what was formerly EB plc also said it would spend 6m to put GAME above the door of all its 320 UK stores and 150 euro outlets - a brand it gained by buying its onetime arch -enemy in may 1999. The move is smart. It will allow for stramlined marketing and customer relations, and the cost of the change will easily be swollowd - still leaving a bang-on-target profit of 25m for the year to January 1st. (THIS IS WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING) But, it is also a defence, as the EB name is set to emerge asa rval. The US company Electronics Boutique Holdsings Corp has been gradually weakening ties with the UK chan that it created by saving Future Zone seven years ago and sold its remaining shareholding in the UK firm last year. The rival Philadelphia-based retail monster has 936 stores throughout the US, Puerto Rico, Canada, Australia , New Zealand, Kores, Denmark, Norwat, Italy, Sweden and Germany. European moves have been slowed by having to offer [EBQ-L which is now to become] GAME first refusal on each opportunity it discovers, as per the deal signed with EB plc back in 1995, and it also cannot trade in the UK and Ireland until 2006. But the assault has clearly begun. ' We know that the US-ovned Electronics Boutique will be a competitor' admitted GAME Group;e commercial director Lisa Morgan to MCV. 'They already are in some countries. But that doesn't really bother us'. 'We will expand in the markets , and that includes another 15-20 store openings in the UK'. ______ Interesting huh? casts a different light on the workings behind the name change past simply reducing costs and merging the brand.

I believe EBQ`s growth will continue. Forget the doom mongers for the momement and look at the market EBQ is in....which is still a fast growing one, set to continue with new products and also for the company expansion into new countries. Trend is nearly always your friend and its at an incline ! not a decline.Down into the 120`s was at the lower end of a drop, the profit takers have taken their money and the market looks positive...back into 130`s again tonight. Matalan has recovered because it has been pasted (halved in price),after their results it was its relief the company is not going down the plug hole. Dixons dropped because its a huge company with whole sectors of its market IN DECLINE, maybe albeit tempoarily. Retail sentiment was not brilliant at the start of the week for many reasons, but as we go forward the market will be looking for solid quality and well managed businesses which look to grow in 2002.....EBQ will be in there.

doctor bird, hello, i can well see that farley and his 'master swing trader' has left its mark on you. farley starts his analysis of stock by applying the fib grid over the chart landscape, in the way a cartographer applies his contour lines to a map to highlight the its profile. there is a site from which you can download for free an explorer utility that allow you to embelish your webpage-lines, arrows..etc- with one set of utilities particularly related to charts which include a fib grid that can be simply added and stretched to suit. one problem, i find it rather slow and it did not work with the latest explorer 6 version although worked with the earlier versions of explorer. click the link: http://www2.webscrivener.com/ws/website/default.asp i have also written a program in 'basic' to work out fib retracements on small handheld computers that use this language. i am afraid the figure of 110p is none other than a round figure. remember they work too. this is because i believe the stock price of late and the sector as a whole has been driven by sentiment. otherwise how could anyone justify the stock price dropping over 6% on the day it anounced a like for like profit rise of 47%? and dixons fared even worse, hammered upon showing an even higher rise of profitability. but normality appears to be setting in. today i see that matalan has risen on showing a much lower increase of profitability!

Balto, You seem to have covered most of the things I look for. My main focus is the pattern and as is often the case with triangles the volume has been diminishing during the formation of this rising wedge with a slight pickup on the prospective breakout. A fall of 5% to about 123p should confirm the breakout. I should not short even so, because this is a strong performer and the setback is unlikely to be sufficient to merit the risk. I have traded this share but not recently and do not hold. If the current reversal were to be significant I might buy again. Good afternoon Melfaraj, Very good of you to keep tabs on EBQ for me. You are so reliable. If as you suggest the price comes back to 110, that would be really interesting. How do you estimate that, is it a Fibonacci level?

Fantastic run or not the thing about retail is that fixed costs - staff, property are high. Falling sales rapidly eat into or completely wipe out profits - hence EBQ's very low price a year and a half ago. Two new consoles + a lot of games development this and next year may well provide quite remarkable uplift to EBQ's sales - as seen in the run-up to Christmas, with like for like sales well above previous highs. Increased sales should go straight to the bottom line. Have a look at the US rollout of Gamecube and Xbox - record breaking figures sold on release - will the UK be any different? Games sales do well in recessionary times as well - as people spend more on home entertainment rather than going out. Problem is can the manufacturer's deliver the quantity to meet demand? (PS2 already in short supply in the UK).

EBQ has a lot further to fall. In view of the recent trading statement and what lies on the horizon EBQ should be trading at about £3. EBQ's share price is being managed. I suspect their are a number of larger retailers who want to buy EBQ and are using their brokers to drive the price down before the bidding war starts.

having watched the performance of ebq in detail and over an extended period last year i am of the opinion that, as before, the stock is heading down over the short term and would consolodate at a level slightly over the 110p mark before reaching higher to the 150p level. overall expect this process to take a couple of months or more. for those who find this difficult to stomach, remember that only about a year ago this stock was at the 50p level. it had a fantastic run over the past year.

Errol and the rest On the above post , after BSY, I should have added: -Now look at Ebq from 15/11/2001 till 9/01/2002; can you see the same pattern??- Expanding further, on 7/01/02 we had a small white candle, the next day we had a big black candle which has completly and well over covered the previous white candle. This is called "Bearish Engulfing", which again is a bearish (well, you would have guessed that already, I suppose) pattern. All the indicators -MACD,RSI,Stochastic,Momentum,William%- are showing a negative divergence (that is when the price makes new high whereas they do not, creating a divergence) both in the daily and, exept momentum, in the weekly chart. This is bearish. Today drop came with a downside gap. Again, bearish sign. There is an old say in the City: buy the rumors, sell the news. The rumors have pushed the price high, two days ago the good news have come......... To me this stock is screaming SELL ME from from every corner. DYOR Ps Is there any more competent chartist than myself who could add on what I've said?? If so, can you please post your view?? Thank you. Ps Do not talk about long term, we are not out of the wood yet, there are a lot of Technical Analysts who predict the bear market to came back with a vengence. www.cross-currents.net/charts.htm Happy New Year to all. Regards.

fevs - expecting a batch of X-Box's but only on pre-order initially. Apparantly Amazon have a massive pre-order list and are guaranteeing same day delivery. £299 is the price - which I guess we all know. It looks like the games list is increasing by the week. All the big players are releasing games for the console and it would seem that there will be 100 + in the first 3 months. Anyone know why Game never stocks GT3? A girl I work with was keen to buy a PS2 with this for her partner....ended up buying it in V-shop. I must admit - the EBQ/Game shelves are looking extremely bare on quality titles at the moment - a sure-fire way of giving a hand-up to the opposition.

Errol Ref post 178 I don't know. Look at the chart of British Sky from 27/10/2000 to 01/02/2001. That is a Wedge. Look what happened next. The difference is that the wedge in Sky came after a big drop, Ebq has come after a rise. I don't know how much of a difference that can be, but it is still a bearish pattern. Get yourself that book, go to www.global-investor-books.com or phone them 01730-233880 If you order it now, you should get it by tomorrow. It cost about £40 Ps Brokers where saying buy qxl when the price was £7.00. Look where it is now. I'm not comparing ebq to qxl, I'm only saying don't take brokers's tips as gospel Good luck
