Results look really good to me - why such a low key reaction from the market? I'd have expected a bit of a boost. Cheers, PJ

hi Ian , NIce to see you again . mining sticks hit today even with the Dow roaring and I guess the strong pound recently does not help although a temporary weakness today . I tend to focus on S32 more recently as nice to trade it when getting an idea of what might happen for lead market in OZ . Also, good to trade the DAX with a spreadbet as it is much more dynamic than the FTSE .

Bonkers - welcome to class to be honest - no idea, I'm sure Dr Google's shady cousin Investment Banker Google would be able to help - id guess if you delve into some of the Rio website it might tell you . Otherwise I expect on there will be some detailing of share buy back and cancellations they have done, and you could work it from there. Not a topic that has come up on here in the 11 or 12 years I've been contributing to the board - I appreciate no of shares into value of company does indicate a fair value per share, but people to focus more on the ins and outs of intra and day to day moves in the price

To those who might like to advise a back of the class lurker... Am I right in thinking there are about 1,367,858,000 shares in circulation based on market cap of about £55 billion and today's price of £40.85? Wondering how this compares with past periods. e.g how many shares were in circulation just prior to announcement of the 2009 rights issue (21 new for 40 old)and how many were in circulation in Jan / July 2011 when it was around £44 per share? Appreciate any response.

the whole sector is on a roll, so I suppose we are now vulnerable to the "Chinese new year shutdown" stories again, and so will see Rio back to £35 in a couple of days!

Hi chaps, happy New Year and a very nice year will be. "Let you winnings run and cut your losses". I believe there is lot higher to go, probably £45 and tank there. But who knows maybe £55? or £65? Commodities trending and the flavour of the 2018.

happy New Year to all - Christh , Are you still watching the market - I was astonished to see this above £40 and not a peep from you - hang on, you'll get out flat eventually at this rate! roll on £50 now I suppose?

Feature in this week's "Investor's Chronology" about falling demand for steel, and iron ore, in China due to housing/construction policy and anti-pollution policy to favour higher grade iron ore (avoiding sintering throughout China). They predict 4-5% pa steel demand decline over next few years. On a separate comment Vale was talking down prices recently too, but for another reason: hTtps://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-12-06/vale-to-limit-iron-production-in-value-over-volume-approach Do Pilbara miners worry about this? Contrarily Credit Suisse says the opposite about prices: htTps://www.businessinsider.com.au/iron-ore-price-outlook-credit-suisse-2017-12 There you have it, clear as the red stuff! An observation: in Beijing recently and quite a lot of (new) office space looks empty. Stock of old housing, however, is still looking poor (reminding me of the 1980's!!). Not a holder currently in RIO but out researching and looking for yield to replace bonds. (FMG is my preferred Fe stock but copper been looking bright recently). Trying to get a hold on the new "paradigm" post the end of the super-cycle.... and whether these stocks could go lower, for better yield, or rebound; clouded by GBP forex on the fake news Brexit "breathrough" of course.

any mini rally in mining stocks seems to be hit by sellers and then a retreat. I assume metal prices are still falling and certainly copper still looks shaky

interesting article . Deutsche Bank highlighted some interesting statistics this morning regarding trading on the Australian Securities Exchange. The Australian stock market rose 3.7% in October to mark an 11% gain year on year. The value of all trading year to date was $496bn, down -1% from the same period last year. Capital raisings were up 1%. The average daily value of trading is down -3% to $4.2bn. The number of individual trades placed on the market is up a remarkable 21% year on year. The average size of individual trades is $3,762. This may not strike anyone as remarkable until one considers that twenty years ago, the average trade size was around $34,000. What has changed? Well first we might consider that coming out of the early nineties recession, retail interest in the Australian stock market was at a low ebb. The bulk of trading was left to institutions, being large, well-known fund managers, who traded in sizeable blocks. But with the privatisation of Commonwealth Bank in the early nineties and then the first tranche of Telstra’s privatisation in 1997, Australians began to rekindle an interest in share market investment. By the early noughties it became apparent that aforementioned large fund managers were sucking the life out of superannuation returns through excessive fees. There began the inexorable rise of self-managed super funds. Between renewed retail interest, and individuals managing their own super, it makes sense that average trade sizes would reduce from the 1997 level. In the 21st century, ASX trading became ever more computerised and computer power ever greater. And faster. So began, as Deutsche Bank puts it, “the inexorable rise of the bots”. High frequency trading does not have a lot of fans outside of HFT operations themselves. HFT uses algorithms to, in effect, train computers to trade by themselves without human intervention based on signals the market is sending out at any given moment. HFT is fundamentally ambivalent. Whereas a human investor might decide to buy and hold BHP for a period on a belief that stock is set to rise, HFT simply nips in and out of the market on an incremental basis deploying only small levels of funds with the intention of closing out that trade just as quickly. In and out, all day long, and always square when the closing bell sounds. The intention is a lot of increments add up to a lot of money over a period of time. HFT is no guarantee of a profit. There are days in which net HFT trading exceeds 50%, meaning HFT exponents are trading against each other as well as genuine investors. By default, there must be losers among them as well as winners. And as for those mysterious algorithms, there is no mystery at all. Algorithms simply quantify and convert into computer logic exactly the same short-term trading tactics humans have used in stock markets, or any market, for decades. It’s just that they operate that much faster. In milliseconds, faster than the human eye can ever notice on a screen. As computer power continues to increase exponentially, so, too, will HFT. And presumably that will lead to even lower average trade sizes. But the more the number of HFT participants grows, the lower the profit pool, given more will be trading against each other. Does HFT disadvantage the genuine investor? On a day to day basis I’d say not really. What is often noticeable nevertheless are frequent sharp moves in the first half hour of trading on the ASX – the “opening rotation” in which one by one trading opens in individual stocks – which more often than not sharply reverse once human interaction kicks in. These sharp moves tend to suggest HFT feeding on itself, as algorithms fail to recognise the difference. This might become an issue if we see another 1987, just as “portfolio insurance” (or more correctly, the market-makers on the other side of put option positions) exacerbated the market fall back then. But then, so too might the growth of exchange-traded fund (EFT) investment, which could well lead to a similar result in a similar scenario. The one thing we do know about HFT is that it’s not going to go away. Y
