"While it might seem apparent that buying will push up a price for a share, this is not always the case. It may seem perverse but buying can in some instances make the price drop. This is commonly know as the Market Maker 'shaking the tree."
Agreed but while there is uncertainty it will be held back as that's the one thing the market hates. i can also say it is what the market thinks it is.... the size of the fine may well effect the dividend possibly as well... all the banks need to build a confidence b. balance sheets. c trust again. until they do it will continue to be at these levels in my opinion.
When is this going to be announced...... must be a month since the other banks agreed to settle. i'm surprised barclays marked up it shouldn't be a surprise that barc passes stress test.... as opposed to a enormous shock if it hadnt. anyway i've been watching the postings on this board for quite a while...... don't think there's going to be a significant tick up until that out the way along with dark pool.
LLoyds barely scrapes through and is unlikely to be given permission to re-start the dividend and it's currently showing a higher percentage increase than Barclays. There's no doubt that traders are the ones dictating the swings on this stock, i'm not going to bail on this until i reach my target and with the result of these stress test, i'm in no doubt that i will reach it soon.
This must be the most manipulated banking stock going and i'm not someone who gives much credence to conspiracy theories. As soon as the stock starts climbing a slew of articles appear, citing reports from secret sources, dishing out old news with a slightly different slant. When Barclays does well on something it gets tucked away in articles and is slightly harder to find without digging a bit. It's like it's a crime to give Barclays any praise for anything, i even saw an article i where the reporter was allowed to slate them for the life skills program. On the back of these stress tests Barclays should be flying, not recording mediocre rises. It's about time the bulls break out of the pen.
