One of the main factors affecting the share price is the poor performance of the investment bank. Fortunately that appears to be down to market forces rather than anything Barclays have done. Personally I don£t have a problem that there is an investment bank. The ordinary banking sector is saturated so there will be limited prospects for growth. So the best returns are going to come from areas other U.K. banks fear to tread. The more banks that abandon IB the less the competition. PI is going to disappear soon and we appear to have avoided the FCA saying the banks must tell the customer that they had PI rather than wait for the customer to enquire , so it could have been a lot worse. The US fine will probably be settled at under £3 billion so not as-exposed as RBS and easily affordable. So that only leaves Brexit. A hard Brexit and this share could go anywhere in 2018, a soft Brexit and a bit of good news on the IB side and we could see £3 next year If that is the case I will be left kicking myself that I bailed out too early.!

Sorry for not replying earlier to your post and others. Not had a minute to myself since walking out the door earlier.
Managed to cover part of my short when the yanks started waking up though.
You stick to what you know, its a good way to trade chap. Hurts a bit when it bottoms lower though lol, still a very good way to trade indeed.
Whilst on route I did call a good mate this afternoon, who is very switched on, also long Barclays himself at this moment. We were discussing the short term. He thinks we will see this current resistance, then to 187 and back to 183 /182.
Then expects the build through 2.

Short term that will work out just great if it does, personally id like to see 189. Drop 3% and re buy at 183 or a touch lower.

Liking the 2.38 posted by Chaz for 2018, personally I would settle for a steady 2.10 myself first.
Of course id love this charting lark to pay off too, not always the case though lol.

Jack, are you surely not tempted to break your religion and go long for once lol
Does this not look like a perfect pattern for a long trade, surely. If not can you elaborate for my benefit, as this fool does not wish to depart from anymore money that easily . . . again.

Either way its Friday evening Mrs Wolf has just text to say she is in some wine bar.
So I have a nice Bourbon begging to share some peace and quiet with. Oh and if anyone bumps into Mrs Wolf in Euston please keep her out till at least 2ish please.

Wish everyone a good weekend

Thanks Mr Wolf. We are all different of course but I never rely on the technical stuff. I stick to either Barclays or RBS as they both are subject to massive swings. I tend to buy large numbers when the share price is on the way down and then hold until they make me around £50k a deal. ( roughly a 10% swing). Pre Brexit I seemed to judge things better and had 15 successive deals , down mostly to luck at getting the timing right. Often I trade in and out within a few weeks but recently taking longer. I broke my golden rule last time out and switched from Barclays to RBS after Staley's dividend announcement and then had to wait ages to make a small gain on RBS. Back in to Barclays at £1.90 at the moment hoping to see £2.10 before bailing out.I tTought we were heading that way pre results but not to be. I think this share will come good but I will not be hanging around once the share hits £2.10.

Long was purchased @ 1.30, the question is how long it will take this to recover to near book value. it's strange to be sitting on a high % profit but also be disappointed because we are under valued here. would love Mr Wolf to be correct. Good weekend all.

Scooter and Trend,
Firstly I must say "well done for both of you having such a good average price.
We can never judge another trade on the Buys and Sells of the day.
So manipulated, as lots are after hours figures, some ghost bidding included in those figures.
Take Barclays "Dark Pool" option for large clients as an example.
You can not tell me they didn't know when QATAR dumped a 1 lump unit worth £10bn back in 2009 it wasn't filtered.
Can remember seeing and reading everything positive then.
The share price was hitting resistance before the sale in Aug. So all in the know had started to either short or sell off.
That 1 issue cost people like you and I, nearly 6 months to adjust.
From around Aug 2009 to Jan 2010, just before the finals build up.
Now how manipulated is that, it will always be "Them and us" unless you have a family name or a title that is.
Our whole purpose is to contribute to a failing system I'm afraid.
So having our charts are not more than a comfort blanket lol.
Least when it does go up we will see a few more posters log back in, sadly it is a little tad depressing for most at this current price.
When it broke below 150 was sole destroying, may as well have gone past every cash dispenser, withdrew cash and threw it on the floor. . . painful times.
Anyhow, you both have decent B/E's to look forward to soon, hopefully.
Regards W'
