There certainly needs to be a correction in house pricing careful as you say, but it's the London and SE market that has grown to silly proportions. Typical monthly rents of £1500-£2000 is just crazy, I don't know how people afford it. Certainly 8 times average wage is ridiculous and has to come back to the long term average at some time. A house price crash seems well overdue to me so get the tin hats on because when it does come it will be long and deep.

the housing market could be in for a pull back. when everyone thinks that property is a one way bet and are prepared to pay stupid prices, it is time for a correction. Average house prices used to be about 3 x the average earnings. Today it is about 8. We seemed to avoid the property crash of recent years that happened in other places, Spain and Northern Ireland are examples. Many of us know of people who were seriously burned in Spain. Property prices halved in some regions, and no one saw it coming. We have grown complacent here with prices pumped up with HMG subsidies in one form or another. People are relying on buy to let for their pension scheme and future, thinking that property is safer than equities. such faith in non productive assets. I shudder to think what would happen if they all decided to get out at the same time.

these dont seem expensive but there is a pretty strong rotation out of building/infrastructure and into defensives....some growth stocks but not uk ones, in the US, just wonder if this is a 2007-13 style sell off. Just cant see any catylyst to lift this stuff now, brexit basket case uk just non stop negative news.

Sorry last line should read " no corresponding buy trades shown"

Thanks Marksp2011. See what you mean - it's worse than useless it's misleading. Checking today's "trades" there's a buy of over 1 million shares at @ 09:15. This is showing as a buy and added to the "buy" total. Volume of "buys" mysteriously leaps by over a million at around 11:00 'ish but there are corresponding buy trade(s) shown.

prettygreen the trade data is usually meaningless. You can sometimes see the direction of travel if you watch as the aggregate numbers are meaningless. They dont even include all the trades so....... dont waste your time

Am I missing something here ? Trades today show buy:sell as 605k:125k, yet the share price is down again (for the 11th day on the trot). If it's not a true reflection of all the trades then what's the point of providing us with the data ?

A UT trade is the auction It clears all the trades that are flagged to clear in the auction if they didn't clear in the trading day. Could be one trade or thousands reflect in that one line

Pram, I expect there will be a Rns in due course. I'm still bullish on GFRD fwiw 👍🏻

'Uncrossing Trade' Difficult to find a proper explanation or definition but it is usually related to a large trade, and involves (theoretically) an 'auction' on SETS. However, only Tier 1 players can bid. My reading is that it is an excuse for an agreed trade between a large seller and ONE buyer . Just my opinion.

Mark: Good to have a sector you have an affinity with - and a hopefully blossoming sector. I have an aversion to Trusts as you pay their fees regardless of whether they go up or down. I am overweight in IQE in Tech sector, my only tech share, and have been thinking of increasing in this sector, (often US co's) but products can easily be usurped or out of date, so increased risk, I guess that's where trusts come in to spread risk around more co's.

Thank-you Speedsh. My expectation on my post above, 3 days previous proves right: "A possible downside. Year end t/o may be less with declined work, but work done implicitly better margin, but possibly the lower volume of work will mean the distribution of central costs/fixed overheads has to be paid by that lower contract volume." Taking macro view, those that commission work still need it to be done, no reason why that job need shouldn't remain, but they need a few more percent on their budget. A restoration of balance. :-) IMO Dave

DR I have a lot of stuff in the tech sector. It is in the sector but mainly Fundsmith/FGT type stocks eg Paypal, Visa, MSFT etc. It is an industry I know very well and I am careful with what I am doing. SMT might love Tesla but I dont buy car makers:) Especially those who make poor quality cars

Galliford construction boss: 'We need to improve bottom line' - HTTPS://www.constructionnews.co.uk/companies/contractors/galliford-try/galliford-construction-boss-we-need-to-improve-bottom-line/10035130.article Growth in Galliford Try’s construction business will flatten as the group focuses on margins, the division’s chief executive Bill Hocking has told CN. Results for the last financial year showed the building and infrastructure business increased turnover from £1.53bn to £1.69bn for the year to 30 June, while operating losses were reduced from £88.8m to £29.1m. Mr Hocking (pictured) told Construction News he was not looking to grow the business further. “I’m quite happy with that. I’m quite happy to have a business that is £1.7bn,” he said. The construction business has a revenue target of £1.8bn by 2021, which would effectively mean revenue increasing only in line with forecast inflation. “We’re plenty big enough,” Mr Hocking said. “We don’t need to chase volume; we need to improve the bottom line.”...

Dr I still have 2k of these. Not much for some I know but still a year of UK average salary and hard earned over the years. I was trading the 950==>1000 loop so my holding had been increasing In general I am de-risking and going more global until this Brexit shambles plays out. I think that sterling is going to take a pasting so there is 10-15% to be had just being in $ assets Whether you think Brexit is good or bad isn't particularly relevant at the macro level Mr Global market will see a shorting opportunity. We may get 7% growth in the UK market but we could be getting twice that in sterling terms holding a US$ steady eddy picking up 2-3% divi and a 15% currency move. I am not trying to open the Brexit debate but what is happening there is a change that will play out generationally not over the next quarter and I think it best to try and get out of the way

I have been out playing at being a Trucker helping mate with house move, so apologies for delayed responses. Mark: Yes rights 1 for 3, but don't forget to factor in the £5.68 we paid to take up those rights - so say £1.42 per (1+3) new shares held. speedsgh: Thank-you for the "no thanks" GFRD contract offers. Good to see it is more than lip-service (risk/reward etc) and the fact that it has hit media is good. I wonder what sort of shock-wave it sends through those that commission hospital/infrastructure and the like if they now struggle to get big boys on board. They like big contractors to price with piecemeal breakdown...but if they have to get multiple co's to do one contract, that's more headache for the principal, they may well recognise the error of their ways and the outcome may well be a healthier for all contracting environment. A possible downside. Year end t/o may be less with declined work, but work done implicitly better margin, but possibly the lower volume of work will mean the distribution of central costs/fixed overheads has to be paid by that lower contract volume. I guess the answer, net good or net bad, lies in the volume of work out there, to keep staff/equipment perpetually employed, with Brexit as perpetual fog over that answer..zzzzzzzzz yes boring. ;-) If you do sell, still happy to chat. :-) Your above post.. shouldn't that be a wink to indicate irony?
