Sorry to mislead anybody, my portfolio is value is not fixed - I am thinking of buying TLOU today and whilst comparing costs between ASX (£5.50 commission) and FTSE (£8 commission) I noticed my portfolio vale change several times.
It may well be a fixed AUD$ valuation - but the GBP value moves with the exchange rate - less volatile maybe than an sp but charges will be linked to GBP figure I reckon?
See BUZZ, Only two months ago ...... 11.5c down to 10.5c last night, not much cents? I hope!
ASX is normally so quiet on TOU, it seems unlikely to be that influential on the FTSE.
There was activity on banking in NZ to do with insurance irregularities which hit Aussie banks sp on Friday.
Financials, energy shares drag Australian benchmark lower, NZ down
16 July 2019 07:46
RBA easing bias already priced in
Financials, energy stocks top losers
Rio shares reverse course, weigh on miners
By Rushil Dutta
July 16 (Reuters) – Australia shares closed slightly lower on Tuesday, with advances in defensive stocks offset by losses in the financial and energy sectors, after investors shrugged off the central bank's July meeting minutes suggesting further policy easing.
The Reserve Bank of Australia said it would cut interest rates "if needed" at its July policy meeting, where it slashed the cash rate by a quarter point – the second cut in as many months – taking them to a record low of 1%.
The move highlighted the RBA's urgency to get the country's economy on its feet and reduce unemployment, and markets had already begun pricing in another 25 basis-point cut before the end of the year.
The S&P/ASX 200 index .AXJO ended 0.2% lower at 6,641 points. The benchmark ended down 0.7% on Monday.

It looks as if they are going to plague the sp until the cows come home.
I noticed a 1.4m manual buy was reported after 5pm @ 16.44p , £250k on one trade is reassuring surely?
My aussie stock is flitting around either side of the break-even mark but IG value my portfolio at the same value al the time I think. When I lost big time on HMV's collapse, TDW constantly revalued and when my account reached the threshold for charges - added insult to injury by charging me £36 annual fee! They refunded it as a good will gesture when I complained.
The IG threshhold is 3 times the size of TDW so I had to invest quite a bit to avoid charges - it will be great if they value you portfolio by the cost of it rather than current value. I don't want to be looking over my shoulder all the time when all I do is reinvest two dividends per annum. At their prices, topping up the my dividend earner is much more attractive (than Interactive Investors, TDW rustlers) which makes them a win win outfit maybe. Early days but over 5% dividends beats ISA's hands down in the UK.
Thought Plunkett should have bowled rather than Archer- Plunkett 3 for 42 , Archer 1 for 42 was the clue?
And the three wides in one over from Archer was an even bigger clue - though the ball near the batsman's head was never a wide in my book! I thought we should have had a wide in the superover too? The fat umpire would have given it. And how Jason Roy was not out lbw looked crazy too? Over 50% of the ball has to be in line with the wicket to reverse the umpire's decision? Bit like being a little bit pregnant?
I wonder what the betting on the cricket and tennis was like?
Enough flapping to get over the Andes I reckon?
Watching Ben Stokes turn a dodgy 2 runs into 6 runs was incredible! Pure fluke I am sure, but thank god Maradona never played cricket!
And at Wimbledon? Player challenges a line call, Hawkeye was out of action, and the umpire gives the challenger the benefit of the doubt and orders the point to be replayed???????? If Nick Kyrgious was playing it would have been fun!!!! He'd challenge ever one of his out shots to get that replay the point decision, a farce? Fortunately there was a a pair of true gentlemen playing yesterday, two legends , 3 tie breakers versus 2 traditional set wins produced the wrong winner imho. It was a draw! As was the cricket (thought NZ , 141-8, versus 141 all out, should have won tbh).
Share price here looks like a draw too? Not moved much from Friday?
EVRH - a blast from my fairly recent past - I received a strong tip from family that a couple of trader mates, who had 100% success rate until then (Spring 2017), reckoned this was a good thing. I put in a larger than usual punt never knowing whether the 'holding company' was dependent upon the software (phone app), hardware (3D viewing and sound in a headset, MelodyVR) or both. Bought at just under 10p and within a couple of months they were over 17p, looking good, but I still did not know what I'd bought into, very uncomfortable! They didn't stay at 17p for long and after a year I grabbed £312 profit when they touched 11p. Not looked back at them since, until now,. My gut feeling looks well in tune - better than it did when ASOS showed £76 after I'd grabbed 60p profit after share rose from £3.40 to £4 !
I suspect the mates were like most gamblers, you hear about their successes but not the losses?
I used to work in offices above Jane Norman (clothes shop) half a dozen doors from Harrods!
We used to say, "just popping down to the corner shop for milk" . I never seemed to leave by the same entrance I used on the way in. Crazy place compared to the Coop in Somerset!
There was a story there too, before self service, when a counter was in the way!
I'd just started school and the manager served me.
"Half a pound of butter, please", top of my mum's list.
He walked 50 yds and came back with it!
"Half a pound of margarine, please", next on my mum's list.
He sighed, and repeated his journey!
"A packet of nice biscuits, please", next on my mum's list.
Revenge was sweet!
"Give me the list sonny!",says he.
He wrote upon it, not Return to Sender (Elvis) , but ....
"All our biscuits are nice" and sent me half a mile home to tell my mum the good news!
Progress , for once ,
Petty France? Went to the passprt office there 4 years on the trot!
Year 1 - got a family passport
Year 2 - lost family passport got 2 passports me and Liz - mine restricted to 1 year
Year 3 - extended my 1 year to 10 years
Year 4 - on the way home from Vancouver they stopped Liz - passport was only for 1 year too! A senior guy asked what the problem was of the junior, and said "Where are they going? What nationality are they? And then where's your problem?
Year 4 - extended Liz's from 1 to 10 years!
Once we got individual passports the family passport turned up - I thought it was stolen when my suit jacket was on the floor after a darts match in Vauxhall Bridge Rd, Victoria!
In those days students were paid to queue for people and they'd phone you when they were near the front of the queue. I was too tight so wasted my time 4 times!
You newbies surprise me - a share that was cheap at 22p before the shares issue, is on the way back towards that 22p less a bit of dilution and you sell? Remember 22p was cheap! Each to his own , but if your ambitions for Sirius are as low as this, I am glad you aren't directors :O)
Duracell, the NYM planning authority did not have the money to finance an impartial study for our application.
We provided that cash for them, and they chose Amec.
Until then there were a few objectors (nimbys with little influence) and it had been very plain sailing.
Even David Cameron seemed to be on our side, planning looked simple!
But at the eleventh hour Amec published their report which flew in the face of everything leading up to it.
They even questioned if poly4 was any good and with Boulby's support denied there was a market for it anyway!
Boulby were selling Muriate and Sulphate of potash for extortionate prices and doing ok so cheap (less than half their prices) BUT the latter was expensive and nasty to produce! Adding suphuric acid to potash!
It looked odds on that producing an unnecessary product (if you believed the infidels) within a National Park would be turned down! Sensibly, we backed out to reformulate our application for hostile conditions and it cost us years, and no doubt a lot of money! Amec were in cahoots with a huge potash corporation in Canada so delays suited them as well as Boulby (ICL).
You can see the ICL u-turn and the Amec Boulby-dash..... and why I am so angry!
Without their deceit we may just have been in production before my wife died. She saw nothing for all my cash and belief in Sirius, and it was not their fault unless you blame them for slight complacency in the first round of planning.
Had you been around , you'd have probably been as happy as most of us were at the time.
I look forward to the days when Sirius advertise for production workers and the younger guys at Boulby ditch their rat infested employers to work for an honourable company. At least ICL are exposing them to Poly4 mining and that may be valuable to us (I hope).
ICL and Amec have both sworn the Hypocritic oath - I reserve the word hatred for that pair.
And my reserves approach the amount of poly4 we own.
I admire our board's ability to refrain from quoting the scumbags' evidence and opinions on the first round planning application - not one concession that Poly4 (the only name in my book for it) had any sort of future - it makes me sick!
But that is why we have chat rooms?
