Thanks endion. Largest size HL are showing today for FDEV is 15000 shares. I'm pleased that the share price has bounced well off 950p. Let's see what happens over the next few weeks. Not that it overly matters, I'm here until the revenues are more consistent - due to the planned yearly product releases - rather than this transition period. I've been looking at JWE reviews and it seems to me that user reviews are better on the consoles than PC. Maybe it is because PC players expect more depth to games? Finally, another FDEV email re JWE. "The eagerly awaited 1.4 Update is getting closer and we’re hosting a special livestream to learn all about it! Join us live on our Twitch Channel at 7PM BST/11AM PT on Wednesday August 29; Executive Producer Rich Newbold will give you an exclusive look at what’s included in the update!"

Some time in the afternoon, I may be mistaken as it was a brief look but fairly sure it was so, sorry to be vague!

What time was the almost million sell? I dont see it reoprted on lse, it may be delayed. I thought Id share a post from a user called MB60 over on lse, he had some interesting points on the share price movement at the time which is still relevant: "I think there are a few questions that need an answer .... Why did FDEV sign up a joint broker in August 2017? Were they unhappy with Finncap and as of now which of these two brokers are are advising Frontier on the SP, and it seems strange that Finncap is the only broker mentioned here hxxp://tools.morningstar.co.uk/uk/stockreport/default.aspx?tab=6&vw=ad&SecurityToken=0P0000Z4JZ%5D3%5D0%5DE0WWE%24%24ALL&Id=0P0000Z4JZ&ClientFund=0&CurrencyId=BAS Quote from https://www.londonstockexchange.com/exchange/news/market-news/market-news-detail/FDEV/13329774.html "Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV, "Frontier"), a leading independent creator and publisher of video games, is pleased to announce the appointment of Liberum Capital Limited ("Liberum") as its Nominated Adviser and Joint Broker with immediate effect." I also think you have to figure out who the winners and losers are (or have been over the past 6 weeks) Before I go to far I still think the current fair value of the share price is somewhere between 1300-1400 So the winners so far are BennBridge https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10471141/persons-with-significant-control and who ever is handling the share price (Finncap) they make money on volume and volume has been pretty good since mid May, and that includes day trading and those 'after hour' (closed door) trades  As for those pesky 'day time' small trades .... my guess is either they are the small reward or loss on split second larger day trades, or BenBridge has discovered that if they keep pounding the the share price with as many trades as they can the share price simply breaks. (it has to recalculate it's value on every trade and if someone is messing with the spread then of course the value will change) Another possible ...I'm also guessing the 'shorter' is trying to put 'fear' (or confusion) into the share price ... they are trying to get investors to sell (by choice rather than stop loss) since it seems most of the stop losses have been used up. Remember Shorters will use every trick in the book to drag the share price down."

Amazon sent me an email advertising Xbox games and top of the list was JWE, and at £41.99 (This is the first time they have ever sent me a 'games email' and I have never bought a game from them) Possibly this is good news if they are sending it out all over the world. Good to see it top of the list, obviously Amazon thinks that's where it should be. Yes the trading is weird, I looked at the buys and sells on London S.E. earlier today (not at close)some of the sells were massive - nearly a million quid - one trade. I don't pretend to understand trading manipulation... What's needed is solid belief in the company's products and direction, only time and some solid success stories will do that...

Same unusual behaviour we have seen in the last half hour of trading on multiple days during this downward trend. It was suggested to me to look up "painting the tape". A link to that here: www.trade-ideas.com/glossary/paint-the-tape/ What it basically comes down to is an illegal practise that manipulates the share price just before close. It is used for a variety of reasons, not only to push the share price down but also up. In illiquid stocks this method is particularly effective. With so many trades going through so quickly, the share price has to react to recalculate the price, offers and bids need to catch up and dont always manage it. So if you are the one throwing all the trades onto the market, you can jump in and force the share price in the direction you want whilat others are trying to figure out whats going on. Or those trades could be dozens of people just deciding to take a 9 share punt at the end of the day. All at the same time. Having looked closer at the last half hour, i would hazard a guess that most of the small trades are sells and not buys as advertised.

Nice to be up again today overall but a stream of tiny trades towards the end of the day during which the price fell back. endion, what do you think?

Yes, chart-wise it looks encouraging. For confidence (mine) I would like to see it get above the 52 week MA, currently at about 1285, before I accumulate again. However, given the compelling, to me, upside I might be tempted before that but let's see what happens on the 6th September. (I am constrained cash-wise while building stakes in a couple new stocks / accumulating elsewhere).

The price is holding the 50% retrace of the whole move on the Weekly. Quite significant in my opinion. All time low 94p to all time high 1881p. the 50% retrace = 987p

Looks like that's the (near) 50% downside volatility in the stock. (45% approx.) Now all we need is the 81% upside ++++!

Thanks for the links mark. Some comments from the JWE announcement thread: "That's awesome, the summer is almost over and the team of JWE just gave me a really nice vibe with this announcement.  I can't wait for it to be released. Thanks a lot to have considered our request  First i didnt believe it, because i saw it in a french forum, but when i saw this, this was probably the best time of my day. Keep up the good work" "Devs said they wouldn't, and now they say they did it. Anyway, fantastic news today. Thank you Bo! All you regain my trust." "Rectify is wise. Great news and I must congratulate the entire Frontier team. So you have regained all my confidence and support."

Yes, nice to see today's rebound. Email from FDEV - "The next FREE content update for Elite Dangerous: Beyond – Chapter Two launches August 28 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One." JWE update expected soon too. hxxps://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/442862-Important-News-about-Dinosaur-Sizing

A fairly healthy rebound today. Its good, pschologically, for investors to see it finishing above £10 again. Would be even better to finish the week there. We'll see what tomorrow brings. Gla.

dsct - What I am anticipating is that price will be marked down on last years results, the ones being published, even though we know what they will be. This is because some people, and computers, trade without knowing the full story. There will even be current investors for whom the results will be unexpected and it will scare them. Whilst this is absurd because last year should already be in the price, this sort of thing happens time and time again. And in reverse of course. On the other hand there will potential buyers in the wings waiting for the forward looking management commentary. If that is positive enough for them they will be buying. You have put yourself in this class. Most holders will of course also be looking mainly at forward prospects as they already know the material element of the results. The candle will chart the price action on the day. It creates a picture of enthusiasm, and enthusiasm is what generates upward momentum. In addition there is FOMO which adds impetus. We saw that in the run up to 1800 and if the forward look is exciting enough it will happen again even doubly so because mentally investors see a potential third missing out at any particular price point: the first time up, on the way down, and back up again. I can't emphasise enough that what I am describing requires a bullish statement on current trading and future prospects.

I'm only a recent FDEV investor (end of July), so am >10% down at present. Not a problem, as I'm not a day-trader (or even month-trader!). Once I'd decided to buy, I then opted for the "buy 1/2 now, (possibly) 1/2 later" route. Although investors here know and understand the negatives for this year's results, my main concern is how the headlines will be reported. Will they have the words "crashes on profit warning", or "reduced as expected"? This is why I've held back. If @hpcg's "hammer bottom, or maybe a marubozu" (no idea what they are yet, but will look them up later ! lol), scenario is backed by a positive set of results/forward guidance, then I'll be doubling-up. I'm seeing broad similarities between FDEV and a couple of my other investments (DUKE & GAW). Lumpy earnings due to (limited) product launches, and concentration in a small number of products/clients. I believe all three companies understand these negatives, and are actively resolving them, which is why I'm holding. GLA and well done (possibly) to those that got in sub £10.

averyb - also - the MMs did a flush low here with the OBV (crowd) well lagging - these flushes have certain characteristics (unusually clean ramping drive down 'instantly' followed by a larger climb in reveals their intent), so artificial rather than natural swing - divergence picks up change in natural momentum - so in this case - on the intraday anyway - there was little divergence displayed as it was MM action only. Takes a while to get your eye in to spot these flushes - but good fun when you do.

Whilst there hasnt been confirmation of a 2020 release per say, there has been confirmation of a fifth franchise which is in pre-production. What we really need, and have needed all along in my opinion, is to know what the fourth franchise is. With the buzz from JWE having abated, the market needs to know that any profits from JWE, no matter how big, can be continued going forward. I have every expectation that the fourth will be an exciting one. But until we know for sure the market may remain wary about piling back in.

My primary thesis is that on results day we'll see something like a hammer bottom, or maybe a marubozu. That is the FY results will cause the price to either open at the low or find a low in early trading, but the forward commentary will lead to a close at or near highs. It somewhat depends on what happens here and to the market as a whole in the intervening period. Much depends on the words about this and next financial year, for example: more colour on the 2019 release even though we won't get the title, confirmation of a 2020 release, anything which broadens the existing franchises, new content for the existing franchises, continuing to forecast at the top end.

The increase was mostly due to planet coaster and especially elite performing better than expected. With elite having its best year yet, 4 years after release.

The RNS of 3rd July was also nice - "The Board's expectations for the current financial year have increased".

Thanks for the response people, I guess I will wait this out and hope that there is very positive forward guidance in the results and possibly a bit of education to new investors such as me as to why this has nosedived in their opinion, it is an opportunity for FDEV to show that the market can get it wrong but only if the reasoning is valid. As far as 'positive RNS', the last one I know of was the 19.07.18 one of surpassing the 1 million sales, maybe the market was looking for far more? Today's rise is encouraging, let's hope that it's still there at the end of trading....

rar100, we have had positive RNS after positive RNS but the share price still fell so I wouldn't dare predict the share price after the results (other than no way is it going to zero or anything close to it, this is a solid company making profits). I topped up yesterday, in anticipation of a significant rise over the next few months, but we will have to wait to see and what actually happens. Up until now the company has made a major game release every two years or so, hence the FY2018 results won't incorporate a major game release. Going forward they plan to have a major game release every year - the sooner the market understands this and the (positive) impact on revenues the sooner FDEV's share price hopefully becomes less volatile and more based on expected future revenues.

No doubt the recent Tencent ban by the Chinese Gov. has negative impact on FDEV in a wrong way. The ban was on the psychological mind of children when their reward is weapon. I am no game player but from the title of FDEV games the are not guns and weapon, are they? Correct me if I am wrong here. So investors had over reacted to this news - I think. Ok it may have impacted on FDEV 's income but to the extent that the share price this low. We shall see the result soon.

To be honest I wouldnt want to second guess what the market might do considering how it has responded so far to all of the positive news flow. The FY results are expected to be above market expectations, as announced in the trading update a while back, but it will likely post a small reduction in profits as no new game was released last year. Whether the market will see past this and look to the profits of 2019, which will be many mulitples of that, I couldnt say.
