I'd check your facts about " dividends on Index trading " before posting as you did !! ...
If you've got a Spread Bet Long posn. open on the Ftse100 for example and any of the Ftse100 constituents goes ex-dividend then points are added to your posn. or taken away if you're Short !!..... They are called Index dividends !! .... So whoever you were referring to in your post wasn't quite the fraud you made him out to be !!
I think LLOY is probably the one to be in atm , altho' even that one is struggling all the time with breaking thru' the 70p level ...... TALK dropped right back and EZJ making a bit of a come back , i see !!
Good Evening All .... been out and about since mid morning , just got back in .
Optiimus ... well done on EZJ & thanks Gs for the Analysis . Did open a Short posn. at 1170p on EZJ before going out .... that got me another +10pts. Happy with that for now ...... still overbought but will wait and see now !! No other trades ... may look at what the Dow's doing in a wee while .
ITV dividend of 9.8p / share paid into my SB account today .... stock hasn't picked up during the day so no advantage there atm.
Well, i'm in awe of the Dow .... simply no stopping it atm. !! The Trump effect continues .... with his Tax thing on the agenda today , i think !! Only two trades for so far ... short off 21026 ( closed ) and short of 21050 ( still running ) ... altho' i'm not sure that one will not reverse on me soon !! No sign yet off the 1 hourly & 4 hourly unwinding at all ...... and 21006 has held the back lie so far !! My wish atm. would be that the 21054 level was the current top and the drop back has now started !! Well , i can wish , can't i ? ... lol.
Everything else pretty much treading water by the looks of it !! ......
Not bothered now ..... got my £ 135 loss back and £ 65 more from a Short off 21010 & then 21013 !! Hit 21018.5 at around 17.20 hrs. before dropping back .... now at 20994 and rising !! So it's finding 21000 a bit more difficult to hold atm .... May be going in again soon .... i'll see !!
