Yes FTSE futures not too bright - USA a bit better though for the moment. Hang on to your hats as they say.
There's the 1075 on OCDO, triple bottom complete?
Prior to all this virus issue that's what I was looking for - lets see how the next few days pan out - I hope it is I just think everything has changed with the recent news.
Oh dear, sympathy sought....SAGA down 13%. I think I should give up this share trading malarky. AND TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY TOO!
Sorry to hear about SAGA - its the travel sector thats going to be hit the hardest with all the uncertainties with the virus unfortunately - but lets look on the bright side - Dow futures starting to turn around so hopefully you will start to see some recovery here and in your other stocks which will balance things out for you. If we're really lucky, we may have hit bottom on Ocado and we can see it double from here - fingers crossed.
Happy birthday - have you got anything planned for your special day?
Could have been worse with SAGA (really?), I have only got one tranche at the moment, didn't have funds the other day to buy the second one. Now I don't feel like buying in can you believe.
Birthday plans? I had planned to sell OCDO at 1400 today. LOL
Seriously, I would be happy to sell NMC above 890, nearly pressed the button at 887 earlier.
Have a nice bottle of Rioja to open later, cheers.
Rioja - one of my favourites along with a nice Malbec so enjoy.
Volumes seem to be coming back to Ocado and it seems to have bounced quite nicely this morning - typical of me, no patience like the other week when I bought MCRO, I bought FRES at £7.40 thinking it was going to get to £8 sooner rather than later and missed the opportunity to get back in Ocado at £10.70 odd - never mind, always tomorrow, but if the next few days are anything like today, then hopefully we will have turned the corner.
I think you are safe in FRES as long as you aren't after a quick profit. Myself, I specialise in quick losses!!
I had a nice offer to buy my second tranche of SAGA at their current minimum (I know I know, I said I wouldn't), dithered and the price rose. Doh!
NMC getting back into my sell territory, must set a limit as I need to go out for an hour.
I was looking for a quick profit/be able to trade in FRES whilst I waited for Ocado to sort itself out - when will I ever learn!
Good to hear that your being busy dipping in and out of things - good luck with it all.
Don't panic S, can't you leave everything and wait til later in year?
Things can improve. It's obviously a bad time to sell, don't get sucked into the vortex.
FTSE under 7000 isn't going to stay there all year.
Here you are then. Good afternoon. Great bounce on OCDO so far, which I didn't expect, but well called S & T. One US soldier tests positive and the futures go down 230 points, and of course California will go into lockdown even though nobody has the virus just to keep everybody else out and ban a few more things like tissues and other possible health issues. I could break a rapper. I think the rally in ftse will have turned again by dow open. Keeping alert and I must admit quite intrigued . Must try and sit firmly on hands though I suspect. GL
Glad you found us O.
I'm really hoping that after such a challenging few weeks that Ocado has hit that magic "triple bottom" that has been discussed for what seems to have been a lifetime, but in reality has only been about a month.
I think there will be a lot of opportunity to trade over the next few months with the issues surrounding the virus and as long as you're nimble you could do quite well - I don't think it will pay to hold too many shares overnight though.
I sold out of FRES for a small loss earlier on the basis that it looks like Ocado could go to around £11.40 ish by around 3 (that's what I'm hoping for anyway looking at the graph) - I bought back in here at £11.08 so what I've lost on the swings I'm hoping to gain on the roundabouts for want of a better description. I hope the volume/volatility is here to stay now and if the description of a triple bottom holds true then we will have a lot to look forward to over the next few months.
Fingers crossed that this is the start of the turnaround - good luck everyone.
Don't know if you're out at the minute S, but just saw NMC up over 8% - that, together with hopefully a start of a recovery here must bring a smile to your face.
G -pleased to see IAG and Ocado staging a bit of a recovery today - must make a bit of a difference to your portfolio.
It's 13.40 and I have just got back in, my limit SELLs on NMC triggered so I am now out of NMC. I had only set the limit at 910 but hey, a profit is a profit, I'll buy myself a birthday present.
I also set a limit BUY on SAGA at 36.9 which triggered at 36.82 so now I have a shed load more SAGA shares than last week. I'll work out some percentages later.
Did you sell OCDO on that 1123 spike T or was that before you bought back in?
Sounds like its turning into a really happy birthday for you.
No, I saw the spike, was spitting feathers, and when I looked at the graphs in respect of FRES and Ocado I thought it better to sell FRES and limit my losses there and buy Ocado as I felt it was going to go back to around £11.40ish later today - I bought back in at £11.08 but it reminds me very much of the day after the last time it fell so low back in November - volume/volatility seems to have come back so lets cross our fingers that it is going to start to move up going forward and that we can trade it a bit like you have been doing with NMC.
Is your place anywhere near the break out of the virus in France?
Looking at the "volume" indicator on IG charts within the trading platform and yes, OCDO volume is really building up. This is good for the share price and us!
Death from virus in France is in Paris, an elderly Chinese tourist. As far as I know the other cases in France are around Paris. My property is in Brittany about 250 miles away but I don't think that means very much.
Its not like we haven't been waiting for this moment to happen - lets just hope its not just a one day blip. What is your IG target thingy that you've been using saying? - I'm just thinking if we have a repeat of last November then we potentially could see £11.60 odd today - just waiting and watching for the spike.
Mmm 250 miles is nothing as the wind blows really - at least you've got a few weeks (same as G) to monitor things and seeing as you're going to your own places then you can always defer going if need be.
Anyone watching Bloomberg? There's this guy on there that has got the most awful toupe on - you'd think someone would be kind and tell him how awful it looks!
