Had beautiful weather there last October. Check the Beatles when I'm 64 has a line about holidaying in the IOW and Ticket to Ryde lol. I'm afraid my experience of the Vectis buses (must check how the share price of the parent company is doing) day pass was very unfortunate with a breakdown and road delays in the morning, the automatic door jamming, the driver falling ill on one of the routes resulting in a no show and ended up getting a taxi back to the hotel as some of the bus routes just seem to stop at 6 pm. Visit the batteries, see the Needles and Osborne House where queen vic died. Ryde with one of the longest piers in the UK, fine orchards and vineyards.
Watched the programme about the traders. One of the favourite shares the investment club liked to trade long I presume was ASOS and think the programme ended with it being noted that the price had gone into freefall, the mum who had been up so much on her practice account was down over £3000 in her real account and the other poor soul would have been better off staying at Acorn Antiques. As for the bodybuilder with the biceps, the ultra white teeth and the adoring wife, I think he could have made more as a male supermodel but certainly the programme had a good mix of the characters we meet on the bbs every day except some of the egos were less in evidence lol maybe they were all sailing their yachts at Cowes.
Cannot see RBS falling to 315 .. but one never knows ... the markets have risen to all time highs recently and the tide can change quickly ... just needs that spark of uncertainty or crisis somewhere in the world ... it has been very quiet the past few weeks...
Hi All. hope everybody is well. I have just watched the Traders programme on BBC I player. it is scary that only 10% of traders actually make money. I am still out at the moment. I did not want to trade whilst the Scottish referendum was on because there was a lot to loose and very little to gain had the vote gone the other way.The share has lost a little bit of its volatility recently and for me it is still far too high to even consider getting back in. I am prepared to hold out and see if it drops back to around £3.15 again. if it does not I will probably stay out. I have had a very good run of luck over the past 3-4 years and I never invest in a rising share price. Good luck to you all
The programme highlighted different ways of trading... With many gadgets
RBS the past 3 years has proved consistent to some degree and I find dealing in one share keep things as simple as can be.. For me... I haven't the time to monitor several shares a day.. But each unto their own..
RBS have given many 5 to 8 good trades a year .. With a 15% plus gain each of the past 3 years
Do not think I could sit at 8 screens of data .. Candlesticks never true understanding for me... To grasp.
See what happens this week.. .. Sub 350 with a bit of luck.. ..
BS's US unit Citizens is expected to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange later today. Earlier this month RBS announced it would sell as many as 161m shares in Citizens - 29pc of the company - at a price between $23 and $25 per share, seeking to raise as much as $3.5bn.
Watched the traders programme and could easily see the attraction. Impression is that it is a business for the young and fit, maybe not so easy for the older chiels among us to invest hard earned savings. Some interesting examples, not least the guy who has been trading for seven years and not made any money but prefers it to the profitable antiques business he was in before. The golf buddy I mentioned previously is already well into it and throws some big money at his trades but I think he is one of very few, he has the funds to work with and lives alone. I'll hear what he has to say tomorrow.
