Perhaps you have been sipping at your own bar a bit too much
From Collins english
British English: pompous If you describe someone as pompous, you mean that they behave or speak in a very serious way because they think they are more important than they really are. ADJECTIVEHe was somewhat pompous and had a high opinion of his own capabilities.
A good example of the above would be to post to no one in particular (and I quote from your 09.34 post)
" Quite agree Astro . I am getting a bit tired of this in consequential chat!! "
you even added exclamation marks for good measure.
To call you pompous was not "childish point scoring", it was accurate and what "had no benefit whatsoever" was your post , other than to attemp to elevate your position within your own mind,
This is a board , a simple forum , where people from all walks of life, with similar interests in Lloyds in particular and investing in general converse , its not serious , it does not move markets or effect the share price in any way at all. And times people just pass the time of day and go "off topic" every now and then.The gentlemans way, if the conversation is not to your liking, would be to stay away from it, ignore it and only comment on issues that you had some empathy with and with posters that you feel are more atuned to your perception of your social standing, sadly some posters decide to take other paths.
One thing they all have in common is they appeal to the board as whole for sympathy (and I quote again from your post of 12.12) "just interested ,if any one can elucidate... sorry if I sound pompous ....not intentional,but I still think there are some childish so called point scoring remarks on this board,which have no benefit whatsoever"
I understand the issue you refer to but we have had numerous occasions on these boards where newer investors take these people at face value and make decisions on their limited info simply because they speak the speak so to say.
However they need to be exposed so that they do not make fools of others.
accepting your point mate I will in future simply ignore the false prophet.
I have been saying Lloyds was under-priced for some time now, and can see Lloyds heading for a little resistance at around 63.50 then up to 65p + over next week or so; I consider this to be a calculated guess based on how I see situation. I removed some of my profit from yesterday’s trade after buying RBS at 307 and Lloyd at 60p. Had I felt differently I would have cashed in both of yesterday’s trades, I am a great believer that we will see many shares rise in the second half of the year but this is only my view?
Obviously, I can’t see what the future has in store until it appears but all being well we should be ok for a good run, as I fail to see the FED doing anything different in the near future to drag the market down.
