seems to be an opinion of some. What I want to know is this. To subsidise this global pandemic quantitative easing is inevitable and by buying up Treasury bonds or in other words 'printing money' will only kick the can down the road. Problem is all developed countries are running out of options and controls. We all know what that means and to compare gold performance with equities in recent weeks tells us nothing except the equities bounce is weak and gold is strong and much more likely to get stronger. iMO, especially given the way the strongest global powers are handling their economies, this equity recovery is not founded on the emerging reality and facts.

Personally I think its just the latest 'fashion' probably those in early on this 'trick' got good returns from it but once the copycats mimic it in the hope of a good deals the gains become negligible. I've always believed that to smooth out the volatility of AIM commission should be much higher but then that goes against the grain of free market competition. It'll bee something else no doubt once this small dealing runs its course. I see it has spread to a lot of my other AIM shares but at least it keeps them out of mischief !
I haven't been following the trades in the recent volatile period but fail to understand how all these supposedly penny trades can manipulate the market? Does anyone have any straightforward explanation please. All I can think of is it somehow distorts the bidding price but can't really see how. Is this some sort of sophisticated fiddle or just plain stupid auction pricing.

Joatmon - probably not but offshore loading scenario for tanker export would completely change that. GIven the quality and the ease of production and relatively easy installation of a single buoy mooring system offshore export will become a realistic option
LK looking for $35 oil price in 2 yrs06 May 2020 09:53
Admittedly WTI languishing 20-25 but Brent is already back to $30 so realistically WTI will make it in timescales proposed and if offshore buoy loading for exporting which is easily installed given the financial backing that LK is confident of then maybe better price because the quality of the Lower Cruse is so good. Alsoit'll come out under its own pressure. All in all a good scenario.
OIl price collapses, AIM oil penny dreadfuls take off, although in the case of CERP understandable. Gold price heading for peaks unscaled since 2012 yet goldies take a breather. As you say funny old market, particularly AIM Mkx
Used to follow bar charts with Zak Mir for many years but have come to the conclusion they are OK if used sensibly in a bull market but a crock of ***** when in a bear market. Given up on them in the past, they've been out of fashion for a few years now but looks like they are generating more interest especially particularly given the pick up in AIM miners. GLA. PHE is in a league of its own I feel and more driven by sentiment but all that should change once production starts.
Could this be the target for today's day traders, down among the deadmen? Let the trading begin in earnest . Last ones still hanging in at 1.3p left holding the baby for another day. That's the great thing about AIM no matter what the prospects are nobody has a clue where the SP will end up. It's very exciting and beats mowing the lawn any day.
Thereall - Don't forget to add the costs when they do leave home, fall out with partners, end up back again repeated till they settle down and live back permanently while they save for a house. LOL You ain't seen nothing yet! You'll need more than GGF to see you through that lot !
