Yes there are patterns at similar times during a year...but not always the same....

That said yes the board is quiet ... nothing fresh to say....

Election this week that not many seem interested in except for the media......

The killings still happening around the world .. plane goes missing last month and now boat crew disappears... With all the technology it seems to letting the people down....

As for Carney at the BOE .. I have yet to fathom out what exactly he is employed to do... plenty of talk and hinting .. but no action.. might just a well stayed in Canada the past 6 months.... for what if any benefit he has created...just letting things solve themselves is easy money that many a person can do...House inflation in one hand and no enough houses being built on the other ... both are bad to buyers ... and Carney and the government... just talk...

It will be interested to see the turn out figures for this weeks election...

Dow down 150 at the moment could be another retreat tomorrow...... like the weather .. we have sunshine and then rain....... dries up and we start again....

14 years into this new century and so much has happened ... terrorism, financial crash, flooding, Iraq and other conflicts, Twin Towers gone... Tesco losing profits, MPs cheating allowances, more cannot afford a home... David Frost, Alan Whicker, Nelson Mandela, Whitney Houston, Sir Henry Cooper, Sir Norman Wisdom, Sir Eric Sykes, Max Bygraves, Tony Benn, Phil Everly, Stanley Mathews, Ted Lowe, Shirley Temple and Mickey Rooney to name a few..... all gone.... that I have grown up with....

Happy days .... GLA for tomorrow....

Board dying away again , nothing much happening ?
Mailman re . Sell in May ....some facts and figures from a site called " Empirical Evidence " might be of interest .
c. Seasonal and Temporal Patterns in Prices
One of the most puzzling phenomena in asset prices is the existence of seasonal and temporal patterns in stock prices that seem to cut across all types of asset markets. As we will see in this section, stock prices seem to go down more on Mondays than on any other day of the week and do better in January than in any other month of the year. What is so surprising about this phenomenon, you might ask? It is very difficult to justify the existence of patterns such as these in a rational market � after all, if investors know that stocks do better in January than in any other month, they should start buying the stock in December and shift the positive returns over the course of the year. Similarly, if investors know that stocks are likely to be marked down on Monday, they are likely to begin marking them down on Friday and hence shift the negative returns over the course of the week.
The January Effect
Studies of returns in the United States and other major financial markets consistently reveal strong differences in return behavior across the months of the year.

Source: Raw data from French
Returns in January are significantly higher than returns in any other month of the year. This phenomenon is called the year-end or January effect, and it can be traced to the first two weeks in January.
The January effect is much more pronounced for small firms than for larger firms, and roughly half of the small firm premium, which is the additional return earned by small firms relative to large firms, is earned in the first few days of the month .

That could well be the case .. But .. And there is always a but.. And a but can turn into a Maybe...

The trouble is that expectations can turn into unexpected ...

Not having all your eggs in one basket, is a point i like to remember ...

The yearly go away in May and come back in September period has begun .. So that's what some say.. True or not every summer is not the same regarding share price movements..

Meanwhile we wait and see... As we have no control...uncertainty creates up and down price movements, capitalising on the up movements is the name of the game ...

Not a good start to the week ...

Carney has not done a thing since in office , plenty of talk but no action... refusing to be positive on a interest rate rise... and the government reporting to slow down help to buy schemes... both poor news to banks profits....

All this said another bank holiday weekend coming up so it could be a volatile week.....another day tomorrow.

At least the sun is shining ... time for shorts on and a beer in the garden...GLA

I think it was Andrew Carnegie who said that you should go 'all in' and you have done that. The fact that RBS was backed by HMG gave us all the sense of security that allowed us to invest as we did. The problem now is that it has taken too long with many more matters that were unexpected and even now there is a flicker of hope if not expectation that some very good days lie ahead.

I heared the lady CEO from Thomas Cook on the radio the other day. apparently within the last two years the share price has gone from 2p to £1.80 a rise of 900%!. IF only I had invested in that share I told myself. But the fear of failure would have prevented me investing over 400k and my fear of greed would have meant I would have bailed out much earlier. My theory is to stick with what I know which is RBS. richer pickings were to be had pre consolidation and to turn a gain did not require as much time. On my previous investment with RBS I was toying with the idea of LLoyds because they were still dealing in old money. At the time they were early 30,s I stuck with RBS and initially regretted it as Lloyds pulled away. I sold my RBS with a 55k gain in the last tax year so I cannot complain.My theory is it is paper money. Yes I am investing a lot but I am playing with past gains and to loose it all would be very dissappointing but would not leave me in queer streetAs long as I keep working I am happy to speculate but if it was the shirt on my back I would not bother as it is far too risky

This causing me to review my strategy! eg: had I bought 13500 BATS in January and sold mid March at 3329 then bought 10,000 Astra on 3rd April, etc., I would have been looking at £19k dividends and £130K profits. These are real figures and, for me, well worth working at identifying shares that can offer these opportunities.
