The FTSE has been trying all week to do what it did today. Even with the Dow, DAX etc going up we had been badly lagging. I think it's all to do with this BREXIT stuff because we just haven't been keeping pace with everyone else. I've picked up a few longs today.
You're doing the right thing by looking for bargains and not just jumping in feet first on a whim. It's the only way to keep ahead of the pack. The committed bulls are going to get hammered, just as the committed bears are going to get hammered.....as always.
That new CEO sounds like a real tyrant. lol. Some think that's the only way though and never change. I've met quite a few of them in my time and they always get pushed out in the end. It cause3s a lot of upheaval until they do go though.
They've only made 6 X files episodes. I wonder if it's a tester to see if it's still popular?
I'm out on the booze tonight. My sister's 25th wedding anniversary and we're all going out for a meal.
David Gest gone as well. He was very popular in the UK because of his BB and jungle appearances and he seemed a very nice bloke, albeit a bit strange. The sad thing is that he had to leave BB early due to illness and it was obviously leading up to him dying. My worst nightmare something like that because I've been to the doctors last week with an unexplained pain in my chest and there was nothing found. She said it could have been a slight infection but to go back if it gets worse. It'll get worse when I keel over one day when I'm out walking the dogs. Then I'm stuffed.
A cracking result for Leicester and would have been better if Man U had given spurs a game. I hope Leicester beat Man U 5-0 at Old Trafford to win the premiership. a grat result for Man C as well to reach the semi finals of the champions league. I hope they win it for Pelligrini because I think he deserves it after the way he's been treated.
I don't seem to be very interested in the cricket these days. Maybe a good ashes match will change that. lol
Who's this Grim? ...... This shouldn't be happening. It doesn't make sense........ Every bear in the world. lololol. I've lost count of the number of times I've read from 'experts' that the ftse will struggle to get past 6200 before the big falls start again. I've been buying the dips since 5600 and every dip up from there. Not a short in sight for me. lol I think 5600 was the bears March 2009 and we know what happened from there as the shorters and sellers got clobbered all the way up to new highs. We might see a pullback from here as it looks very overbought a slight adjustment and we'll be off on a charge again. There's still too much money sloshing about and any tightening they say they're doing isn't really tightening.
Isn't it strange how it's all gone quiet with Isis and syria. Maybe you're right and they're starving them of attention. That would help calm the public as well. No news is good news.
Weggie, You should try using different aliases. That way you wouldn't always have to post messages as a crazy right wing nut job.
steve the beaver,
"No proxy rally this year likely that hedgefund support for the company has dwindled as well"
What the heck is a "proxy rally" ? I have been investing a long time and have never heard or seen of a proxy rally. And hedge fund support ?
What evidence do you have that Geron has or ever has had hedge fund support ... or that the support has changed ?
It sounds like you make investment decisions based on concoctions that come out of your head. Institutional ownership of Geron has steadily increased over the last couple of years.
All these tv's blu rays and even computers all seem to be cheap these days compared to a couple of years ago. My problem is that I hang onto everything until I can't repair it anymore and end up with loads of old tat. lol. Most of my computers are windows XP and my newest computer is windows 7.....I only got that because my ladyfriend was going to chuck it out when she got her windows 8 computer. lol. Another couple of years and I'll invest in a new tv..
The car is a great little car. It has to be used for long runs so I only use it to go to Newcastle to pick up and drop off my ladyfriend. Having said that, I gave the little roadster a run out today just to drop her off. I hadn't used it for a couple of weeks son it was it'sa turn today. lol. It's difficult fitting in a turn for the cars because I don't go out that much. I wish I had what I had now about 20 years ago. You build up your money and possessions over a lifetime and then you don't have enough time left to enjoy them.
It was a pity about Paul Daniels. I always like him but I don't think he got the recognition he deserved when he was alive. We have people like Dynamo and Troy but his sleight of hand was every bit as good as theirs but he did what they did 20 years ago. I liked that his last words were to his wife and he just said 'I love you'. Brilliant.
There's only one way for me to go with the FTSE and that's to buy any dip. I don't care where it goes down to because I'll just put more money in. The banks are laughing even harder at us now so my money is going into the markets at every opportunity. It's the only way to get a decent return these days. Keep looking for your bargains Grim. It's the only way.
Another shocker in Belgium. There's no end to it now.
Ron, very interesting therapy. Very stupid comment by you "This appears to be just like Geron's Imet".
Other than the fact the both treat cancer where's the similarity? LOL Complete clown
