You were assuming , as many did including me, that at 55p the SP would continue to rise , fact is it didn't , it started to fall and at the time of the consolidation was down to 20p and could have dropped further . Since then it's risen to getting close to £4 , nearly doubled in price . In time I'm fairly sure but not absolutely sure it will reach £5.50 , how is that being robbed ? We all assumed this was going to be a multibagger , unfortunately the bank was in a far worse condition than most people realised and the market set the SP to reflect that .No chance of it getting to £1 ,even the chairman admitted that .
You said that you should have sold at 55p .. You are correct ... You have answered you own problem... At ...55p .. It then if I am correct .. The SP dropped to around 30p before consolidation happened .. I take that you still did not sell.. .. While is was dropping down to 30p
I did not loose out in the value of my share holding at the time .. Buying in At around 32p.. I have since bought and sold 10 plus times since the consolidation .. Like many others ....with success ...
The markets and RBS price moves the same for all of us... So investing and trading is down to your own decisions ... We all make mistakes but that is a learning process that myself and anyone else goes through ... As time goes by hopefully I make less of them...
As I say the main certainty is uncertainty .. Or share dealing would be easy and we would all be millionaires
