I suspect the 100k trade at 77 is a buy too as the price never went high enough for long enough for a MM to take that on as a sell. The seller will finish eventually. The next question will be the level of conviction that those holding once the seller clears. I have the sense that there are a number of PI's who have picked up quite a few on the basis of fundamentals, low P/E and growth, who are likely to hold for some time rather than flip for a few pence.

Yes, if the deal was done on SETS there is a buyer and a seller. So at the moment a big buyer and seller at 75.25, who will run out of steam first?

igoe104, the 200,000 trade was a BUY. I know the buyer.

One small-cap growth stock I’d consider ahead of Fevertree Drinks plc. http://tinyurl.com/y954yyvk Improving performance The company in question is building services group T Clarke (LSE: CTO). It released a generally positive trading update on Friday, with its performance in the period since 1 July being upbeat. It is expecting to deliver results which are in line with guidance for the full year, with pre-tax profit due to be £6.5m and revenue expected to be higher than £300m. The company’s forward order book now stands at £380m versus £320m at the same time last year. The integration of recently acquired ETON Associates seems to be progressing as planned. Alongside investment in its new off-site prefabrication manufacturing facility at Stansted, it could provide a catalyst for future growth. With continued demand for its specialist services and the company winning a number of contracts recently, its operational and financial performance could improve in future. Valuation Looking ahead, T Clarke is forecast to post a rise in its bottom line of 5% in the current year, followed by further growth of 8% next year. This puts it on a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of just 0.7, which suggests that it may offer a wide margin of safety. Since the company has a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 6, it offers a dividend yield of 4.6% from a shareholder payout that is covered 3.5 times by profit. This indicates that there could be dividend growth ahead. In contrast, Fevertree seems to have a relatively high valuation. The company’s P/E ratio of 60 may be easy to justify in the current year when earnings are due to rise by 60%. However, the financial performance is set to be less impressive next year. Its bottom line is expected to grow by just 4%, which puts it on a PEG ratio of around 13. This indicates that there may be a lack of upside potential on offer after an extremely profitable 2017 for investors.

Through 80p and onwards soon surely after today's positive update. Could well get a few more paper tips as well.

rivaldo TD Direct used to allow you to trade on credit and since the move to iii I can still do so, which is very useful indeed.

Good to see CTO moving up nicely now to a 77.875p mid-price. CC2014, you asked earlier where I got the N+1 Singer info from - I subscribe to Research Tree. OT : as a slight extension to the above discussion, when I was fully invested in my trading account, with only a few quid left unspent, Barclays used to let me daytrade (which I do occasionally) with a credit limit based upon the total amount you had invested. Their new platform no longer lets me do that. Does anyone know of any brokerages who'll let you do that, i.e without the cash sitting in your account?

spooky Try IG Level2, I use their system to buy and sell CFD's and also for one of my ISA accounts which I have with them. ISA commission only £5. So as I deal CFD's I can get quotes for buys and sells.

Well what can I say. As the price approaches 80 the 100k sell order at 80 has been pulled as someone presumably got nervous it was going to get filled. Price seems to be nudging up on very little volume.

I know that you both hold them,I hold a few too. I was asking which brokers still allow you to dummy trade a size larger than your holding? I can no longer do that at any of the people that I deal through.

Usual games from the MM's. Someone clearly likes the news and now the MM need to hold the price here to collect stock. I see they have loaded a 100k sell order at 80 which is clearly fake to try and encourage a few more sellers. I expect they will load a 50k as well soon if that doesn't work. What surprises me most is how many sells have and continue to go through.

Which brokers let you see how many you can sell when you don't hold them? Or do you both hold 125,000+? The brokers that I have used in the past that used to do that have stopped.

Yes, I also get a quote inside the spread for selling 125,000 shares online. The biggest buy order they will fill, however, is just 1,500 shares. Quite an imbalance.

Now's the time to buy I think. They will let me sell 125k shares inside the spread on instant fill

So, what do we know. The profit for this year is confirmed at £6.5m and the cash position will remain healthy at around £9m. This would be a P/E 6.1. Next year Singer+1 forecast a profit of £7.1m which would be a P/E of 5.7. I struggle with Singer's 2018 forecast as after the pretty poor first half this year £7.1m next year doesn't look very challenging. I would have thought they would beat that with ease. I understand they might want to be cautious though and up their estimates later. I also struggle with their forecast cash position. If end this year with £9m, make a profit of £7.1m, pay some corp tax and dividend, the cash ought to improve by about £4m not £2m, which suggests that either they think the company is going to make another investment or there will be a detrimental move on AR/AP. I dunno. It looks cheap to me. The price action would seem to suggest the seller is still offloading this morning. Impossible to tell right now whether they have finished or not.
