Thanks freedom, the most important thing is we make a profit, it's impossible to guess where a company is going, we have to make a judgement when to sell, as I said before I hope it goes up well for you all so you can make a good profit and when it goes down eventually I will probably buy in again. Still think it's probably the best name on the high street

Well done you chaps, you made a better call than me, sold last week, yes I made a nice profit which we all like to do. When I sold and it went down in the next few days I thought I'd made a good call it hit £3.28. I thought I timed it well, just goes to show you hindsight is a great thing and the best of us get it slightly wrong sometimes.The most important thing is we make a profit each time. Hope it still goes up for you chaps so you can make a good profit for yourselves

pat, the short listing site seems to take a few days to update, so maybe Friday before we know if any shorts closed today.

I certainly wouldn't rely on what the Guardian writes. Analysts, often get things wrong and I wouldn't be surprised if they have forgotten to take into account not only the large increase in population over recent years but also there are more people in work than ever before. More houses than ever before too. So all this needs to be taken into account.

freedom it was a different world! At one time Building societies and banks would only lend 2.5 to 3.5 times income, now you can see loans of 10 times income. As I said in previous posts these views are also shared by numerous analysts, the Guardian and Telegraph have done numerous articles on consumer debt, the BOE also warned. The £ affect is only a temporary respite, there is far too much borrowing. Now don't get me wrong there will be winners and losers if another retailer went to the wall Marks could pick up some of their sales but its too early to guess which retailer will hit the wall.

Simon, did the very high interest rates affect those shopping in M&S in the past when M&S share price was also over £5 NO! The stronger the £ gets, the more profit M&S will make.

"Retail sales growth boosted by clothing" "UK retail sales grew by 1% in August compared with the previous month, with sales of clothing and non-essential items reported as strong.

The rise in the £ will assist retailers in the crucial run up to Christmas where normally the bulk of the profits come in last quarter. Christmas a make or break. I think MKS will do OK.

B&Q tomorrow expected to show a poor performance. Retailers seem to be having a bounce lately I think in part due to the £ its a balancing act. Increase £ decreases inflation as we are importing more, but increase in interest rates and with high consumer debt and mortgages will stifle consumer spend! Its a no win situation and a simple tinkering around with tools. I assume there will be an impact either way but it will affect companies different ways. The higher £ will affect UK manufacturers. Has there been a material change which will affect retailers? In the short term possibly- imports (clothes) will be cheaper from manufacturer, but the pain may come later if the BOE does increase interest rates, it could push GB into a recession. These are not just my own thoughts many analysts agree.

Retailers getting ii's attention due to expected strength in £ as Bank of England starts to raise interest rates. Three banks so far expect interest rates to go up in November.
