Our opening spread was huge 0.51 / 0.69. That has now narrowed to 0.53 / 0.63 so trade might pick up but most are waiting in the wings for news now. If that is positive, which I suspect it will be, watch this jump.
My thoughts go back to the morning of 28 Nov. Some serious representatives of shareholders sit it a room in South London. About 20 of them. Then there is Peter B, sitting on his own, a rather cross-looking man of some 60 winters (never seen a summer), looking dishevelled and tired from his flight and exciting "due diligence" life, piles of paper in his briefcase, his laptop being worked feverishly.
A moment of fame came at Oil Barrel in July - how cross he has been since that a poster should point out he was rude and did not know difference between "operating" and "operational". He thinks he has done very well with his 2 O levels in his career to date - and he has. But this is the moment when he can ask the question that will cause a world bomshell, that will cause CEO to resign and create banner headlines for Mr Peter Bo***** of Catford. No need for him to listen to presentation, will be a load of rubbish anyway and will draw no attention to Mr Peter Bo**** of Catford. Only 30 minutes to go and I will be FAMOUS, he dreams. Then a disaster for him.
What a disappointing time you must have had since, pete. Teasing CH and other posters and getting ticks from friends must help to improve your low spirits a little. Have faith, your moment of fame will come again. Learn some Mandarin and Welsh and you can have a go at BOD and CH alike.
