rental: It’s all happening on prim at the Moment The share price is due a major re rate if ggp share price holds
zedder: How about sell your GGP and buy them back cheaper? SVE hold 82m GGP shares (plus other investments, eg 17.5m AAU). There are 57.574m SVE shares in issue. So for each SVE share which are currently 15.5p to buy, you are getting 1.4 GGP shares. You can see SVE has started to lag on this chart: The chart seems to be planning ahead for the GGP share price!
tmmalik: Q4 very interesting Excellent rns ,should increase share price towards 26p by end of Q4 .Now waiting survey results ,which should be anytime now ,if they are good like hav ..then ggp share price could be 22p alone .So excitement starts now ,if all continuee along gold price seems hitting 2000 again. 26-30p Xmas
iglenn: I see he tried to ruin protons thread yesterday. Why.? Let GGP share price speak for itself.
timberwolf: Yet another piece from Motley Fool yesterday... The GGP share price has risen 326% as gold shimmers in these uncertain times Motley Fool - 10th May 2020 Just saying! DYOR
zooman: P, my question / observation is this, interesting time to do it why increase the cash holding now. A stronger cash balance also provides more protection, if so from what or who?To my mind there is something a foot other than the 28th and GGP share price going up but both may be intertwined. What is good we know what is in the ground so far. Someone posted it could be Inst buying in, if so we may see an RNS if they go over the three percent. Zoo
roks: Is the corona virus figures or ggp share price you guys talking of doubling next week?
mirabeau: Shake your market maker Market makers cover a book of stocks, and while they do set the prices and make the market, they can sometimes be caught off guard. Many of the stocks on SETSqx are driven by sentiment. Aim is not known for being efficient. This means they can sometimes be caught in a bit of a pickle, if they have misjudged the news and opened the stock up too low. We’ll come back to this. Although market makers set the price, they take on the risk of making a market so that private investors and traders are able to buy and sell during market hours. To compensate for this risk, they will often buy stock from us when we sell at a price below the share price and charge us a price higher than the share price when we wish to buy from them. This is known as the bid-ask spread, and this is how they make their money as the price they will buy from us is almost always lower than the price they will sell to us. They make a financial turn on every trade. The spread is the price of dealing in stocks and in smaller companies often set by the market makers. The job of the market maker is to ensure there is always a market in which we can deal and they facilitate liquidity. As market makers set the spread, there is the incentive to widen the spread as much as possible to maximise their gains. But wider spreads deter traders. Fewer traders mean fewer turns, and so the market makers’ greed keeps them in check. The most competitive market maker gets the turn, and this is why when volume increases spreads narrow, as competing market makers are jumping over one another to do business. This is why stocks with little interest see wider spreads – a market maker is unlikely to have much stock on their books as they also don’t want the risk of holding an illiquid stock unless they are fairly compensated for that risk in every turn. When we log into our sharedealing accounts and individual savings accounts (Isas), we type in the stock we want to buy and load up the dealing ticket. With some brokers, we can do a dummy buy and sell, and if we type in 5,000 shares to buy we will get a fixed price, and the same for when we sell. You will see that the buy and the sell price are different, and this is the bid-ask spread in action. That process happens because when we sit at our computers, or log on to our dealing apps, and request a quote, the Retail Service Provider (RSP) network fires off a request for pricing from all market makers dealing in that stock, collects all of the prices, and displays the lowest price to buy or the highest price to sell to us on our screens. Do market makers have an advantage? Many private investors believe market makers have an advantage over the rest of the market in that they get the RNS (Regulatory News Search) news first. Well, not while I’ve been trading they haven’t. Up until recently this year, a small-cap company could release a piece of hugely positive news intra-day, and before the market makers had adjusted their price it was possible to clean out the ask of stock at the same price offered before the news came out. Even better, if a piece of bad news came out on a stock you could dump your shares quickly and then even take a short position through a spread bet before the bid had dropped. Surely, if they’d seen it, they would’ve done something? Unfortunately, that trick is no longer possible with online brokers, as I have noticed when a piece of news now comes out on an illiquid stock intra-day it is impossible to buy or sell a share and no quote is offered online. My guess is that there is now an algorithm in place that shuts off limits in this situation when an RNS is released, which allows the market makers to adjust their pricing and stop being forced to deal before they’ve read the news. However, you can still deal over the telephone – where the market makers are obliged to deal. You can also take a position through a spread bet. In my opinion, market makers should be obliged to deal at the price and size quoted online because this would lead to more liquid markets. It can be frustrating when one intends to trade a profit warning, and all of a sudden the only stock available to buy online is 10 per cent higher than the price quoted on Level 2. If you want to deal but can’t, then this is the time to get on the phone to your broker or open a spread bet position. Market makers know that the vast majority of dealing is online and so they can be relatively flexible about their pricing on Level 2 and what they actually quote online. Share price spikes Coming back to the market makers getting in a pickle, spikes can occur in share prices where the stock is illiquid yet there is higher than average volume going through the stock. We know the market makers set the spread and therefore the mid price is used as the share price. This means the share price can even rise or fall on no trades as a market maker ticks up or down on the bid or ask. This combination of the wide spreads and the mid price being used can often mean a stock can move 15 to 25 per cent on just a handful of trades. This only happens on illiquid stocks with a wide spread, because when the market makers tick up their bid price and ask price it can mean a substantial shift. For example, if we are a looking at a company with a bid-ask spread of 10p-12p, the mid price is 11p. If a buyer takes the market makers’ stock, they then need to replenish that stock and so they will up their bid, perhaps to 11p. This means the mid price is now 11.5p, and the share price is up 4.5 per cent. However, the market makers want to deter anyone from purchasing stock at 12p because they no longer have any, so they increase their ask price to 13p. The mid price is now 12p and the stock has jumped 9.1 per cent from 11p! This can lead to short-term speculation traders jumping in and this can even push a stock up by 50 per cent when there has been no news. We must always be mindful of suffering FOMO (fear of missing out) and stick to our calculated plans. Short-term speculation can be highly profitable, but the vast majority of those who attempt it lose money, because they either do not have a system in place or they do not have the discipline to follow that system. These moves are further exacerbated by those exploiting their knowledge of the way market makers operate. We understand already that the market maker’s job is to provide liquidity for the entire market. However, they do not want to hold plenty of stock in an illiquid share. There are often orchestrated pump-and-dump crews operating in small-cap stocks who take advantage of this for their own gain – a market maker who owns a small amount of stock in a share that sometimes trades only a handful of times a week might suddenly be forced to deal 10 times in the space of a few minutes. In this instance, the market maker would now be net short of stock. That is, they have sold stock that they do not actually have, and so they will need to buy back that stock to close their position. To do this, the market maker has to bid higher for the stock, in order to entice sellers in order to cover their position. But the rise in the share price and sudden spike in volume has now attracted more speculators who then hammer the market maker with buy orders. Market makers are obliged to make a market so they have to deal, and with every order the market maker is increasing their short position on the stock and the price is rising with every buy. This is how spikes are created, as they get chased by speculators and traders, and bid up to high levels. Tree shake Once the buyer appetite begins to lessen, the market maker can now use this to their advantage. When the traders stop bidding for stock at high levels and the market maker lowers their bid price, it becomes a Mexican stand-off. A ‘tree shake’ is when the market makers drop the bid in order to lower the share price, in the hope of spooking some private investors into selling their shares. This tactic is employed when buying appetite has weakened, and so the market makers capitalise and widen their spreads to deter further buying. There are no buyers in the market, but nobody wants to sell at a low price when the market maker was bidding much higher before. Eventually, someone bites, and the market maker then bids lower again. By using tricks like this and making the stock unattractive to buy by widening the spread, the market maker is able to cover their short position on the stock. The speculators who unfortunately bought the top of the spike will now have to sell at the price the market maker is bidding at unless they telephone the order in. There may be more mini spikes in the whole spike cycle and the market maker will play the market accordingly. Handsome profits can be made by speculators and traders who are in and out quickly, or who are able to time the spike, and even take a short position at the top. If the price comes back down only to meet more demand, then the market makers will run the stock up to the resistance point and widen the spread again. It becomes a case of rinse and repeat. Tree shakes are not only used in spikes, but whenever the market makers feel they can make a quick turn. In a previous article of mine, ‘The art of stop-losses’ (IC, 23 August 2019 ), we considered the possibility of market makers being able to see stops. Even if they can’t, they know where these are going to be based on looking at a chart. So they yank the price down, shake out some stops, and raise the price again in order to sell the stock on for a quick turn. Market makers are obliged to make a market – but they’ll also make a market for themselves. If you must use physical stops, use them wisely and not in obvious stop-loss liquidity. Opening risk for market makers Another way market makers can get hurt is when they misjudge the open. Some market makers will cover numerous stocks and there is no way they can follow the story and sentiment for each one. This is why they check Twitter and bulletin boards (as do a lot of traders – sentiment ultimately shifts prices). Here is an example of when I thought the market makers had been unjustly harsh on an RNS from Anglo African Oil & Gas (AAOG). We can see that from the close, the market makers gapped the price down on an RNS, which I felt did not warrant a 20 per cent gap down. Therefore, I bet against the market makers and opened up a spread bet long on the bell, which paid off in the first 10 minutes. I knew that sentiment was strong, and that the drill was still going ahead – the catalyst was still intact. I started closing the trade down at 7p and was fully out not long after. Market maker codes Despite there being a distinct lack of evidence of this, there are people who will swear blind by market maker codes. This is where a market maker will put a certain amount of stock through Level 2 in order to send a message to his market maker friends. This rumour originated from the US whereby a market maker did claim that market makers worked together if one of them found themselves in an uncomfortable position. While it is possible to put fake trades through the exchange – such as ‘wash trading’ as revealed in the Beaufort Securities scandal, which brought the broker to a collapse – there are far easier ways of market makers communicating with each other, if they really wanted to. But even now people will think a ‘1’ share trade means an RNS is coming, and people trying to ramp the price will literally buy a single share knowing that people trade on this. This is probably due to selective memory – the private investors who believe in codes remember the few times a code ‘worked’, and forget all of the previous times that it did not. Market maker etiquette I am quite sure that most readers who have dealt in the market actively will find it amusing when I say that we are supposed to treat market makers with respect. It is considered ‘bad etiquette’ to continuously request a quote and not deal (test liquidity), or accept a quote when the price has moved in our favour. It’s also considered bad form to deal twice in quick succession to take advantage of a price rather than buying it all and paying a premium to get one’s fill in one go. I have even heard of one trader being warned by his broker against arbitraging the market makers. Every now and again, one market maker will be bidding higher than another one is selling. I see this as being a helpful fellow providing liquidity for the market makers and more importantly turning a quick profit, but just be careful as those prices can change at any point. This trick of arbitraging is still possible as sometimes either a broker or a trader will leave a sell order under the bid or a buy order way above the ask. If we are the highest bidder in the auction, we can quickly spin off the stock we bought for a bargain to the market makers for a quick profit, or take the short side of the trade by selling to the buyer and covering via the RSP. This game has become very popular though, and it’s very difficult to find a trade that nobody jumps on. Unless your broker warns you that they may terminate your dealing, or you are doing something illegal (which I do not advise), then all is fair in love and war.

tumshie11: I'm not in any way an expert on how to value a prospective gold mine but that hasn't stopped me, with the aid of the internet, at having a go. Firstly I read "Interpreting Drill Results 101" on I took the HAD020 to HAD036 drill results and calculated the volume of each gold bearing section assuming either a cylinderical or rectanglar cross-section of the stated width and then multiplied by the length to get the volume. I then assumed a rock density of 2.75 g/cm3 and a gold recovery factor of 0.8 to give a recoverable gold estimate of between 2.33 million troy ozs (cylindrical) - 2.82 million troy ozs(rectangular). I assumed an in-ground value of $200 troy/oz and hey presto out popped the answer for the GGP share value of between 3-3.6 p/share for GGP's share of 30% the lot. Amazing, that only took an hour and I feel qualified to teach the subject now. :) At least my guestimate gave an answer in the right ballpark! However, then I realised I wasn't quite expert enough in the tricky subject of the value of the gold in the ground and so after extensive Googling I realised my share price guess could be way too optimistic. Values as low as 20-30 $/oz in-ground values can be seen for M&I and $160 $/oz for P&P ( which is a lot lower than my $200/oz. The average GGP share price in pence for the two geometries I assumed is 0.017x(In-Ground Gold Value) - 0.142. So, for 30 $/oz it is 0.49p and for $160 4/oz it is 2.6p. So, now I have no idea if I have too many or too little GGP shares!
zooman: If anyone is unsure about Price Monitoring, below may help.Explained: Price Monitoring ExtensionsFor anyone trading in smaller cap companies, price monitoring extensions can be an extremely common occurrence. But what are they? Why do they occur? And are they good or bad? Find out the answers to these questions and more with this article on price monitoring extensions. What is the role of an auction?Any discussion on price monitoring extensions must firstly begin by covering auctions. Auctions are small intervals during the regular trading day where the electronic order book is effectively frozen. During this time, orders are collected from the market – known as the Call Period – and the matching algorithm considers the orders that have been entered and calculates the price that the maximum amount of shares can be executed. The intention is to find the most popular and reliable price for a security.At the end of this Call Period, orders that can be matched are executed in an event referred to as the uncrossing, which takes place within a randomised 30 seconds of the end of the Call Period. However, should the auction fail to generate a reliable price, then a price monitoring extension is generated.What happens during a price monitoring extension?Should the preceding auction fail to generate a price within a predetermined percentage above or below the reference price, which is the price just before the stock went into the auction, then a price monitoring extension RNS is automatically released to the market, and the Call Period is extended by another 5 minutes. This extra 5 minutes provides participants the chance to review the prices of the orders that have been entered and if appropriate add, delete or amend.Should this additional period still fail to generate a reliable price, then a second price monitoring extension is released to the market, and the Call Period is extended by another 5 minutes. On this occasion, should the additional period also fail to generate a price within tolerance levels, then this price will be taken forward and the orders that can be matched will be executed in the uncrossing.Why might the auction fail to generate an acceptable price?One reason might be that the share has such a wide spread during that day of trading that the bid and ask price are far away from the mid-price. Given that the majority of AIM companies trade on the SETSqx trading system, where there is no maximum spread requirements, this will likely be the problem in a lot of instances.Another reason for a price monitoring extenion could be the release of news that has a sudden and significant impact on the price that investors are willing to pay for the company's shares.When do price monitoring extensions occur?Price monitoring extensions occur off of the back of an auction, which take place at different times during the trading day depending on the platform the security is traded on. Therefore, as all AIM-listed companies are traded on either the SETS or SETSqx trading system, price monitoring extensions on the AIM market can occur at the following uncrossing times:08:00 (Opening Auction; SETS)09:00 (First Intra-Day Auction; SETSqx)11:00 (Second Intra-Day Auction; SETSqx)12:02 (Intra-day Auction; SETS)14:00 (Third Intra-Day Auction; SETSqx)16:35 (Closing Auction; SETS & SETSqx)It is important to point out that price monitoring also takes place during regular trading. Here, again, should a potential execution be more than a defined percentage above or below the reference prices, then no executions at that price will occur and an auction will be triggered instead. The point of this auction is to allow the security's price to reform in an orderly fashion and then be returned to regular trading.When it comes to regular trading, the thresholds differ slightly, taking into considering two different prices: the dynamic reference price, and the static reference price.  The dynamic reference price refers to the last order book execution price (or previous closing price if more recent) prior to the submission of the incoming order. The static reference price refers to the most recent auction price from the current day. However, where that auction failed to generate an execution, the next automated trade that follows the auction is adopted instead.This price monitoring functionality during regular trading is thought to protect against large trade-to-trade price movements resulting from trading in thin order books, or through the execution of orders with incorrect details (fat fingers).What are the degrees of tolerance?The thresholds applicable are managed from a business perspective at trading sector level. Generally, though, more liquid securities have lower thresholds and less liquid securities have higher thresholds.Reflecting this, AIM SETS securities typically have a 5% threshold on auctions, whereas AIM SETSqx securities have a 10% threshold. In terms of regular trading, AIM SETSqx securities maintain thresholds used during auctions, whilst SETS securities see their dynamic and static price monitoring thresholds typically increase to 10%.The most current thresholds for all trading services are set out in this Millennium Exchange Business Parameters document.What is the purpose of a price monitoring extension?As already discussed, the extension draws attention to a potential price movement. By doing so, this allows participants to review the prices of the orders that they have entered and if appropriate add, delete or amend.The extension also indicates to investors that there may be the potential of getting a good deal for the security in question, thereby encouraging their involvement and so stabilising the price through the inputting of acceptable orders.Ultimately, though, the point of the extension is to ensure any resulting price is a fair reflection of the security.Are price monitoring extensions good or bad?Price monitoring extensions can be alarming if you're not expecting one, or you know it's a precursor to a drop in share price. Nevertheless, they are there to help remove volatility from the market by slowing down trading and encouraging the market to reach a more considered price rather than moving around on individual trades. Considering the lower levels of liquidity on AIM, price monitoring extensions can be considered, then, an important mechanism to safeguard investors.Leave a ReplyYour email address will not be published.SAVE MY NAME, EMAIL, AND WEBSITE IN THIS BROWSER FOR THE NEXT TIME I COMMENT.
