The close price final uncrossing trade was 168p and it will be the opening price tomorrow - the reason it was this high was the volume was crazy in the auction. Google etc tend to show the last reported trade which may be a delayed trade but if you look later tonight it will revert to the Uncrossing trade of 168p
This gain recently and especially today is nothing to do with Nasdaq but everything to do with 4 ETF's that have to load up with Argo shares depending upon the weighting it has been allocated (we don't know yet) because they track the MSCI United Kingdom index. This index rebalances tonight and Argo is one of the new entrants.
it was musks tweet about miners NOT using enough green energy, subsequent FUD from China and others about shutting down miners due to use of coal etc that dumped the price of bitcoin in the first place (and hence Argos share price).
Why is it then a surprise that all this exposure around discussions on using more green energy etc would reverse that trend?
PW has played a blinder to be sitting at that table with a smug look on his face knowing hes already ticked all the boxes and the other miners there are playing catch up.
