marie1980: This kind of share price manipulation has to involve collusion between all the major players in the short attack since it wouldn't work like it has if they didn't work together. If one or more of the major short players decided they didn't want to participate further in driving the share price down, and decided to buy to cover, this would create a major problem for those other major short players. The remaining major short players would not only have to drive the price down based on selling shares to new longs but would also have to sell shares to those other major short players buying to cover their shorts. The remaining short players would not be able to manipulate the stock share price as easy as they did working together. So here's what happens. They will all pull the trigger together. What better way to create fear ahead of results, a new shorter appears. Longs then get scared because they know for certain that this new shorter came in at a very low price! Whereas the other shorters came in much higher so are in healthy profit. Results day could be the last chance to scaremonger the metro holders, and what other way to do it than a new shorter and one last big push. Come results day and once the strategy has been revealed, the short brigade will cover in unison together. — When I finished reading this, I was thinking about Cantre. He sold his 30% only after arrival of new shorts! I sometimes think I spend too much time here in forum but thank you very much Kathy. Those 2 links drew me further google articles and I spend last 3/4 hours in the world of shorts and manipulation. Can’t believe they all doing this under the watchful eyes. I just can’t believe. That second link is so true when it comes to Metro. I now understand why SR keep talking about this. First I thought he is speaking nonsense but now all makes sense. A completely different world. I still can’t believe this is legitimate!!! Pure scam and Normal investors like me you or here others will pay the price. But wait I will not sell and now more determined to use my rest £16,000 wisely. Thank you very much Kathy. 😊🍻😍👌 8077;

idoflykathy: Shorts need to control the stock's share price over a long time (often several months to well over a year), and can't afford to just accumulate an unlimited number of short positions in the stock, so they have to be buying shares at the same time they are selling shares too. When the shorts drive the share price down, eliminating buyers as discussed above, some of those investors trying to sell their shares at that same time will follow the share price activity downward lowering their ask price.

idoflykathy: When you also understand that the shorts use computerized selling and buying of shares at opportune times to manipulate the share price, you can understand why they are able to control Metro's share price, to stop any upward share price momentum, to make long term holders lose faith, and then to drive the share price down.

marie1980: All I can say is...if like you, you buy into the idea there is underhanded tactics being employed to control MTRO share price, isn't the point at which you, perhaps the most enthusiastic long on here, start to cave in - isn't this the point you need to actually be strong and not play into their hands? That is of course if you buy into the games arguments. I don't really, fun to speculate, but like the plot of GoT, the ending is not as interesting as fan theory. Just my probs unwanted 2cents — perhaps the most sensible comment today. Cantre, still can’t believe you sold 30%. I can’t believe honestly. Now since I’m here hey Smartie why Bloomberg and not sanders ?!

bargainbob: From MF in October At time of writing this Thursday morning, challenger Metro Bank (LSE: MTRO) has begun the day with share price up 8% from yesterday’s close. It’s a volatile share, to be sure. But I find this latest increase most interesting as an investor because it follows a car crash of a quarterly result announced yesterday. Difficult economic times It continued to report a loss in the third quarter, this time by £4.9m. The outlook isn’t inspiring either. CEO Craig Donaldson mentioned the “challenging macro-economic environment” and that the bank is “further evaluating… future growth plans”. Mention of the unhelpful economic situation is coming up with increasing regularity across company updates, so in that sense MTRO’s update was nothing new. This is specifically because the banking and financial services sector is sensitive to economic cycles, suggesting that this is a good time to consider some FTSE 100 dependable defensives, even as we keep an eye out for changes in underlying conditions that impact the cyclical shares. Sharp share price movements of the kind that are being seen in MTRO today can be indicative of these changing conditions. So, what’s the driving force behind this spike despite the poor results? Early exit It so happens, that the bank’s founder and chair Vernon Hill gave up his position yesterday, two months before planned. The news came in early yesterday, a few hours before the results did, possibly to assuage investors in advance. The bank continues to reel from the after-effects of the big accounting error that occurred earlier this year, which put its capital adequacy in a precarious position and was a blow to depositor confidence who then started pulling out from the bank. To me the share price rise indicates that investors are looking towards better management of the bank, which already faces stiff competition from bigger banks with far longer track records. Noteworthy nimbleness There are other reasons for investors to view the bank positively as well. Consider the details of the results, which show some return in deposits’ health. MTRO increased interest rates to attract customers back, which seems to be working. The bank might be running into problems, but I like its pro-active stance to resolve issues, a running thread seen in the past year. Not long ago, it pivoted fast to raise capital after its initial plan failed, a point I made the last time I wrote about the bank as well. In a nutshell, the bank’s being tested, but I like the dexterity in its responses. I am positive on investing in a company that can be trusted to manage its problems well, even if it doesn’t match up to the Warren Buffett investing style of financial stability just yet. Just to be doubly sure, though, I’d wait for the next set of results to see more evidence of a turnaround and invest then.

cantrememberthis2: The share price behaviour for any new investor should combine it with the bigger picture: * 10.2% of Metro Bank shares have been borrowed to bet the share price down and KEEP it down * Bond Price has been rising post MREL success from 66p to 82p (Institutional Money IMO) * Active Hedge Fund & Retail Short Sellers posting on LSE and ADVFN board - No VESTED Interest in the stock (buying) * No Director Buying since late October post Q3 Results * Credible Articles in Evening Standard of potential bidders LLOYDS/Virgin Money, I say credible as their Editor is George Osborne (Ex Chancellor) and knows his financial world 'stuff' * Share Price is clearly being CAPPED and HELD BACK, any sustained rise above 220p (4x plus occasions) gets knocked * Share Price is 20% of Book Value of 700-1000p * Very high CET1 Cap Ratio * FCA investigation could end up like Co-Op fine - FAR MORE SUPPORTIVE and LENIENT IMO (ft article) Big Players eyeing this with nearly 2m customers ;) GLA - I'm in for the eventual news of something positively big

cantrememberthis2: Share Price vs Bond Price Today 07:44 There is dislocation between the 2028 Metro Bank Bond Price vs. Todays Share Price. The Bond Price hit 80p yesterday, the last time it was here was in July day of H1 Results. Share Price was 385p End of H1 Results Day approx. So we are alot lower... Think the Bidders / Third Parties are VERY GRATEFUL and THANKFUL to hedge funds and Retail Short Sellers (you know who you idiots are) for keeping a lid on the share price. This makes a 400-600p seem AMAZING and VALUE FOR MONEY. All Engineered. Virgin in the Mix with Lloyds now. Jim was concerned about the lack of other parties - now we have more than 1!!!! GAMES - WOW 241p to 213p yesterday - mugged : TOO RIGHT!
