To some degree that's true. Ac you know, technicals can affect sentiment as they pin-point key resistance or support levels. Some powerful professional traders target these levels over time. A brief scan of any chart often shows that they become self-fulfilling, with obvious exceptions such as compelling fresh bullish or bearish news that can see those levels be broken. Obviously it’s not a 100% science & doesn’t claim to be. That’s why some people use both technicals & fundamentals, be it with varying levels of success.
I mentioned my earlier point as a few here think that FTSE stocks are manipulated by MMs. I said I though it's tempting to seek scapegoats & blame other things for making mistimed calls. One lesson I learned early about markets, as bad as things may seem with a stock one holds, it can always get far worse before it gets better. There can be little logic to it, but that doesn't mean anything with how the market & sentiment operates. GL.
Shut the hell up MR I KNOW IT ALL. You told us to move out of here and buy BATs well thats down 12% and this is down 8% since you made that statement under another alias. Flipping ek I seriously think you have a issue. A mental health issue. For once in your life you said sell the ftse drops 700 points and you like yes see I told you. Dumb as pig dump. If you knew for 100% this was going to drop you wouldn't need to convince us you'd remortgage and leverage and short it. And be too happy to even bother coming on here!
' large caps are too big (to much in issue), to be manipulated'
Look at the size of the forex market. Makes vodafone look like a teletubby in nappies.
Yet a few lads could rig it with an email at lunch time haha" ====================================== MarketNav,
Not exactly what I said. It was put to me that MMs frequently manipulate SPs of large cap FTSE SPs. I disagreed.
Putting out mischievous emails, as you example, may indeed see SPs briefly plummet sharply. But then they'll recover as quickly. MMs don't manipulate protracted downturns of large caps stocks leading to huge selling. At least I've not seen evidence of that reported. You may have.
There'll be a number of factors at play with such downturn (or upturns) in large caps, including sentiment. But also ongoing sector issues, quality of recent fundamentals, reports, forecasts for growth, debt levels, recent local macro-economic or even global factors, not least technicals, et al. MMs don't take a stock like LLOY down to 58p. Brexit fears & other factors have done & prompting too many holders to panic & sell at loss. - GL.
Great info. Something to digest over the weekend. I don’t profess to be an expert in any shape or form. I make my way though and have traded/invested many times with VOD. Unfortunately I got caught with my pants down this time, although thankfully I’m not in particularly deep. Just looking for a good entry point to recover a few pennies. I’m an avid part timer, continuing to learn the dark arts and hopefully setting myself up for my second job when the day slog times are finally over. If you fancy divulging any more of your secrets, you know where I am !!
What’s on your screen MarketNav ? Any insights ? Not many indicators on my screen. I’m a ‘naked’ trader/investor type of guy - price action and market structure are my biggest indicators. Most of those indicators are lagging anyway and just seem to cloud my judgement. I’m interested in the momentum indicators after reading some of your posts. Once that price direction flow begins, your view is the Algos will just intensify that trend until it hits another marker and then reviews the next move ?
Vodafone Group PLC: "This thing has been such a laggard, and every time that the stock goes down more and more, the yield gets bigger, and now I'm starting to wave the red flag. There's something wrong there. I don't trust it."
None of my business how anyone else posts, but as some here think you have something of value to say, in future why not try fewer, but maybe longer & more detailed posts. Then you don't get banned for doing scores of posts within a couple of hours.
That way your comments don't get deleted, but they remain & may be useful to many other BB visitors in a thought-provoking, constructive way. Just an idea. Not that hard surely. - GL anyway, as for anyone else. Catch all much later.
More red posts for you then. He,s a nutter, in the words of Harry Enfield, But does he have loads of money, he should have with his predictions, but some how I doubt it. I suspect he is good at predicting, but to stupid to put his money where his mouth is. Then again perhaps he hasn't got any money, Who would employ him. Toilet cleaners don,t earn enough. sorry to any toilet cleaners reading this, you are way above this idiot.
With FTSE tanking in recent weeks & closing below 7000 today for the first time since 26th March, in context I guess there's some small hope that after a few tests of 150+ as closing support, it continues to hold. If that forms a base next week, bigger buyers may return soon after. So next week likely to be significant in that respect. - May all have a VG w/end!
Steady Eddie vod. Oil and gold stocks don't know which way to go at the moment, too risky. Even if vod does cut div how low can the sp go. It might not be a bad move it might please some whom say vod is being crippled by the div amount? It might appeal to potential investors seeking growth instead of income.
