Typo - couple hundred MCRO shares bought
Type 2 - Diageo range on graph 120 p
Had a message from my financial advisor earlier.... good news! Prudential are reorganising and found some legacy profits ... which they are kindly giving to current fund holders, around 0.9% of last nights balance. That will do my pension pot a bit of good since I expected fall in value like all these shares with the virus and all.
And MCRO now fall thru the 700 barrier....
V: I believe Diageo have an excellent dividend record too.
More MCRO? Well I would like some more too but I am out of funds in my trading accounts now, could buy on extended settlement but that scares me in the present climate.
Nice news from your Financial advisor, good day to get it too when all else seems so bad.
It's Murphy's law that as soon as you buy a share it goes down OR as soon as you sell it stages a magical recovery. AArrrhhh! I sold LLOY earlier, convinced they would go sub-50p, they did, trouble is they have come back up to above what I sold them for. That Murphy character has a lot to answer for.
Well I got bored watching the screens so I went out with the dog - lovely afternoon but was surprised at how cold it was out.
Nice to come back and see there's been a bit of a bounce on MCRO and Ocado - hopefully we'll get a nice little bounce in the morning - Dow only down 1.5% or so at the minute - a near 4% drop on the FTSE today was ridiculous but at least the volatility brings opportunity.
V - Looks like you'll be able to sell the MCRO that you bought today at a profit tomorrow with a bit of luck. Good news about your Prudential Funds.
S - I think you're right not to buy anything on extended settlement in the current climate - you just don't know what you'll wake up to so it's not worth the risk especially if you're doing OK anyway. Remember Rule 8 in respect of Lloyds :-)
Yes you are right extended settlement is a risky business, make that VERY risky business.
Talking of risky business, I have been reading the NMC chat room. I still don't know anything except it might reopen sooner or later (even next year), the share price might collapse, the company go bankrupt or the price reopen above yesterday's close. So that's alright then. Ha.
I actually, foolishly, posted one message on the NMC board about a week or so ago. Someone had said that a company like NMC cannot go bust, or something like it. I posted "That's what they said about Carillion". Then they tore my throat out, or that's what it felt like at the time, so I didn't post a second time. That will teach me!
We are having a holiday next week (only to the coast for some sunbathing. LOL). The place has WiFi but not sure how much trading I'll be able to do. I would, of course, appreciate your continued counsel on buying and selling OCDO and MCRO if possible. Thanks.
I suppose its not something that people want to hear but there's been loads of companies like Carillion over the last few years - Interserve, Cake, Thomas Cook - and a few others that I can't think of at the minute, so whilst you are trying to be balanced on the NMC board, sometimes people just don't want to hear it - I have no idea what to make of all the shenanigans with the company though and its just as well you haven't got a lot invested in there just in case.
You've been saying that you need a day off so why don't you treat next week like a proper holiday and switch off from here? - I haven't got an issue putting my buys/sells here, but from what you've been saying over the last few weeks, you've exceeded your trading targets consistently so have earned some time away.
Unless you're going abroad, I can't see that you're going to get sun in this country - perhaps wind bathing or singing in the rain may be a better description.
V posted yesterday that a director Stuart Rose has sold 150000 shares in OCDO, ooh eer.
FTSE future seems to be saying it has no future....big drop expected today.
Yes FTSE futures are quite bad - watching Bloomberg at the moment - they've pulled back from over 4% down earlier to just over 3% down at the moment.
Volatility definitely today - the Donald won't be happy at how the Dow has fallen this week so I dare say something is going to come out to try and calm the markets.
Just watching Bloomberg and they're saying how Easyjet and IAG are already coming out with statements to confirm cost controls are in place - until signs that virus is under control I think they're just going to keep on getting hammered.
Hopefully OCDO won't drop too much today even with the Director sell - just have to wait and see really.
Just breaking news on Bloomberg - 1000 have been quarantined somewhere in Germany.
wow, IAG EZJ and TUI all down 6%
So was Ocado! That's what I don't like about these markets at times - they are so heavily manipulated these days that they drop share prices massively on what appears to be very little volume. Can't complain in some respects because the volatility is finally back so as long as we're trading the spikes/shakes we'll be fine.
It turns out I was right to sell LLOY yesterday, they are down 4%+ today.
But heck, I would have been right to sell everything yesterday.
Note to self: ask IG to put a "Liquidate" button on their trading platform.
I have to be honest I was expecting a bit of a "bounce" first thing this morning - I think the director sell on Ocado has just given the market an excuse to drop the share price so hard - there's only been about 389,000 shares traded so far so a 6% drop when compared to Easyjets 4% odd today is bizarre given that people will still have to eat but they don't have to fly.
You're probably happy with Lloyds then - more shares for you.
I know I was saying weeks ago that I couldn't quite understand why the market was so calm with the virus in China, but now I'm just as perplexed at the massive reaction this week - its the fear factor I suppose. The FTSE 100 Index has effectively not moved forward in 21 years with the level it is now - it was 6900 points at the end of 1999 and its 6500 odd today - you look at how the DOW and S&P have ballooned in comparison its just ridiculous.
Seems like the drubbing today could be down to Credit Suisse - they've just issued an under perform rating and price of £9.32 on Ocado.
Futures slip another 600 points. Dow now down about 10% this week. I should think we are about halfway there. Good luck wit the trading fellas, way to slippery for me!
Thanks for that O - volatility is all part of the fun of trading for me - probably heart stopping for others.
I've just sold some of my Ocado at £10.35 - only because it may drop again when the US market opens.
Just sold some MCRO too at £7.11 - it being Friday so don't know what this afternoon may bring.
RNS at OCDO - 35,000,000 shares bought if I read it right, declaration of interest as above 5%. Baillie Gifford -asset management and trusts .. looks like getting in at a good SP s0 must view OCDO as a riser going forward
