SCANCELL HOLDINGS (LSE:SCLP) For the n'th year running, the USA managed to surprise by sneaking in "Washington Birthday" as an excuse to close the markets. Quite why a President who promoted a gun culture which led to todays USA is feted utterly escapes us. Otherwise, he didn't do anything really important...
FTSE THIS WEEK (FTSE:UKX) The market has bounced, pretty convincingly, from the immediate Brexit Vote red uptrend. It's something worth considering, we had eschewed this uptrend for quite some time, due to the fake nature of the post vote drop. But visually, the market computers now regard it as viable.
FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) Market performance last Friday once again confirmed why our weekly FTSE mumble is, by far and away the most read headline section, literally worldwide. As can be assumed, this is truly flattering but blooming terrifying also. Real people, real money, real responsibility!
Galliford Try (LSE:GFRD) We received a few plaintive emails asking us to look at this lot from our Trend perspective as ideally everyone wants to know where bottom might be. The answer(s), given the days 19% reversal, are probably not terribly encouraging. In fact, they stink.
The AIM Market (FTSE:AXX) As we enter the Chinese Year of the Dog, one (we suspect like every Chinese year) which will be blessed with luck and good fortune, a look at the AIM market appeared a good idea. Unfortunately, there's quite a lot not to like about the AIM, currently.
National Grid (LSE:NG.) It can be quite strange, how some days the FTSE shows as 1%+ up yet from our perspective, nothing is happening. This nonsense occurs when the market moves within trigger levels, essentially pretending to be interesting. On Monday, the action happened between 8:09am and 9am and a trading range of 28 points.
FTSE THIS WEEK (FTSE:UKX) We should find a way of building our articles which gives folks an idea of which bit to read. Due to our habit of giving "if x then y" and "if a then b" scenario, it would be useful if we could always position each scenario in a way which told the reader what to expect.
FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) It's rare for us to approach the weekend with a "thank goodness it's over" but the last week has been rather foul. We love market volatility as it makes life bearable but the FTSE has shown more movement in the last 3 weeks than it did all last year!
GSK (LSE:GSK) This week, we've been taking the easy option for 'headline' subjects by choosing shares from our email. Today, it's GSK's turn under the spotlight, a well established share currently showing some rather unexpected potentials for the future.
Versarien (LSE:VRS) & some FTSE thoughts. Obviously, we're in a bit of a tizzy with FTSE movements but thankfully there are early indications today - Wed - promises some recovery. Whether it's genuine or not remains to be seen but even above 7302 points will give some hope.
