Lloyds have been in a much worse position than this. Keep the faith in Antonio, he is steering Lloyds to better days, forget today, its what happens tomorrow (Monday) that really matters. 74.35 such a bargain price for Lloyds. Keep the faith.
Well the last few days have been enlightening . After the heady euphoria of a few week,s back when we were sitting at 86p and the world looked a rosy place . HMG choose not to offload at this point . Why ? I think we all know that one . Lets not disappoint the city boys when AHO gave us the down beat Q1 report . Down we went after that and then sitting at 79p announced a quick sale at 75.5p . Could they not have squeezed a little more out of that sale ? . The next sell offs will be tortuous affairs unless LBG announce a divi resumption timetable at half year figures in August . We need to get the next chunk sold off in the 80,s in the Autumn to the city boys . As for the sale to Joe Public I don't even want to think about that one .
market maker Definition of 'Market Maker' .A broker-dealer firm that accepts the risk of holding a certain number of shares of a particular security in order to facilitate trading in that security. Each market maker competes for customer order flow by displaying buy and sell quotations for a guaranteed number of shares. Once an order is received, the market maker immediately sells from its own inventory or seeks an offsetting order. This process takes place in mere seconds. if this is the process surely it shows there isn't always a buy v seller . if they sell from there own inventory do they need a seller there and then and visa versa ? am I missing something ?
Rustybucket - if I was to offer any adive I would be guilty of my own moan - the fact is exactly that I am not an expert and I, like most people have no idea and it is pure guess work. so why would I pretend that i did? I dont have a problem with people expressing opinions, and its up to anyone who makes decisions that may be based upon the views expressed on this site which come across as (in most but not all) as having based upon knowledge.. My point was that I was mentioniong that people must take this forum as exactly what it is, which in MY OPINION, is good to sound off against a common cause, but people should not pretend tto have a crystal ball or even worse make predictions which to me, seen to be based upon fact as opposed to wishful thinking, unless of course you can point me in the direction of a comment predicting the drops of the last few weeks???? Lets HOPE lloyds shares do indeed rally around and I am optimistic that they will in due course - hows that for a prediction?
really do not look forward to this "take the money off the table" for the weekend, just in case the world implodes over the weekend, hope they announce the divi (whenever that will be) on a Monday 7am rns
