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.
had a great result today Moon. Went to our local JEC shop casing out a new Samsung 48" curved 3D 8500 series TV, and really fancied it, but had to wait for Mrs Grim to feel well enough to go. So went tonight, and it was £300 less than last week! Well happy!. They gave me a £100 voucher to use next month as well, so will get a 3D bluray player with it - they also knocked off the £15 delivery charge, and told me it was easy to set up so not to pay £15 to get them to do it. This thing is future-proofed as well, and is compatible with 4K when that comes out, and is a Smart TV, so has Netflix, bbc Iplayer, youtube etc built in. This is a new era for us!!!
Blimey Moon - a great sporting weekend for you, Utd beating city at the Etihad, and England winning the Slam - long while since you've been able to celebrate that hard lolol. Beats supporting Wales and Portsmouth hands down!
Spring is springing at last - no more cold stuff please - hitting the dizzy heights of 13" this Easter weekend, so not quite beachy, but heading that way. What with the clock change and all, feeling a bit more positive.
Watched Lord Of the Rings last night - new TV breathing new life into old films lol. Putting on Shrek tonight to check out animated improvements - even enjoyed watching the Voice - amazingly colourful. Best investment in entertainment I have ever made.
Not much going on the FTSE today, not sure how you would trade this, just hold onto everything until some breakout either way?
Okay, hot dogs or cereal for tea tonight - these are the dilemnas in life lol
Yes, a good win with 3 cracking goals against Germany but we reverted to type against Holland tonight. A great pity about losing Cruyff. A true great from our era.
No storm damage up this way for a change. lol. I don't think we even had much rain.
Yes, I'm a fan of Happy Valley. Series 1 was just as good as series 2. Do you watch Line of Duty? That's another favourite of mine.
I've been clearing out the loft the last few days and I'm only half done. Been chucking out old dvd recorders, tv's, old laptops and even vhs recorders. Haven't a clue why most of this stuff ended up in the loft but getting rid of it has certainly made a difference.
I don't think a ban on the ISIS coverage will deter them. They'll probably just ramp up their atrocities to make sure they are in the news. It's all just so twisted as to how they think. Like I've said before, I can't see an end to it now, even if Trump does get into the White House and bombs them to smithereens. The Israelis have the right idea. For every suicide bombing in their country, they blow up their people twice as hard. An eye for an eye. As much as they suffer, the bombers' countrymen and family will suffer twice as much.
A nice drop and recovery on the FTSE today. I'm still buying any dip so it's working quite nice at the moment.
April15 is the day the Feds take our money. But this year we can get life changing cash windfall.TRXC holds critical patents that could unlock $18 billion market. I am talking about USA alone.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Hillsborough has been a national disgrace. Corruption, secrecy, hiding and getting rid of evidence. This was all out in the open years ago and they've just got around to getting to the bottom of it and giving a verdict after 27 years. It's just never ending and with these *&^*oles in charge and nothing will ever change. That Brazillian bloke killed in the tube station is another one. They just hide the truth and get away with it. These poor families will never get any peace from all this. Confirming the police were at fault 27 years ago won't bring those poor people back.
Nero, You really think posting nonsense on this message board has anything to do with the "Panama Papers" ? There are a lot of wacky internet conspiracies that that one is pretty crazy.
