The markets have been ranging down. I'm hoping we're overdue a good relief rally. I've got another 50 grand to put into the market, but i'm loathed to use it at the moment. I notice Voda is dropping, now that the Liberty Global peculation is fizzling away, so I might just have a punt there.
Scfc, A fitting analogy for Shawcross. Vital to our defence. What Hughes was thinking selling Huth to Leicester for only £3m, Lord knows. We're still paying for that miscalculation each time Ryan's injured. Though I suspect Wollescheid also wasn't fit as he's generally played much better.
If we can get them 100% fit, Bournemouth (tricky as away), then home to Villa & Newcastle, offers us a decent chance of getting back on track. No easy games at this stage, but certainly winnable. I'd also be happier with Walters & Cameron back ASAP as they galvanize they rest. - Cheers.
PS: DOW recovering from nearly -400 to end -177 still isn't great, but perhaps a slightly calmer day tomorrow.
Couldn't open the link but if HSBC have decided to stay put in London that surely is good news for the banking sector as a whole. Think they must have had reassurances from the government and regulators as to any future bank legislation and they must be satisfied with what they have been told. Make no mistake that if HSBC had moved back to HK that would not go down well with the city as a whole.
Maybe in the coming weeks we may get more details on their reason for staying. Anyway some good news for a change, coupled with the GS report on the unlikely event of the U.K. Going into recession in the next couple of years. Thanks M1k3y. GL. JEM.
Agreed, I also think the market has priced in a lot of bad news (or what I prefer to call it, "wild analyst/media speculation") and with global poor sentiment on top! It is easier to forget that in Q3 Barcs profits were actually up, yeat on year, yes up! As for the SP, it certainly hasn't followed the upward curve....as for Scfc, I'd say Stoke without Ryan are like Barcs without Barclaycard! ATB, Scfc
Scfc, well said! Excellent advice for anyone to take on board. Most BBs have the worst of both extremes: either scaremongering (it's only going to go much lower for certain!), or else euphoria (don't sell, it's only going much higher). Of course no-one knows.
One thing I think is feasible in this climate: a lot of anticipated bad news may be being priced in at these levels. If market later finds it's over-reacted, then even moderately okay news can see a decent bounce. Of course that isn't certain, but certainly possible.
I recall former CEO Jenkins started de-risking from commodities back in early 2014. So BARC's exposure may be less than other banks to the commodity carnage. Link tells more:
Yep, I read far too often on these BBs anyone saying "negative" things has clearly shorted the share...IMHO I expect there are very very few shorters on here and by far the majority are just being mischievous, hoping for a reaction from the readers losing money in a falling market. You like me just ignore it and rely on the best advice you'll ever see on here, just DYOR! ATB, Scfc
