I didn't go, either. I said there was a 50% chance of my going because I thought I felt something coming on yesterday afternoon, and, yes, I've got the flu or a heavy cold, or something. Pity, the run up would have been enjoyable on such a beautiful morning. Perhaps next year, God willing!
Tomorrow. 11.00am. I have about a 50% of being at the meeting tomorrow, and if any of you are also there, would be happy to have a chat. I'm about 6ft tall and haggard looking, and will be carrying a light green North Face backpack if I'm there.
I'm still playing, and coaching cricket, but the bones are creaking. My body says pack it in, but I still love the game, and while i'm still taking wickets, and enjoying it I will continue. I meet a lot of companies, and Trust managers, but tend to avoid evening meetings due to my domestic situation.
I regards to your multiple trades question, I would suggest that this is a SETS stock, where bids and offers are posted on the board(I'm not sure of your knowledge so excuse me if you understand all of this). Algorithm trading now dominates day-to-day trading, and it is these program trades in mid cap or small cap that are most noticeable. I also hold MCKS, and a few months ago there was a trade that sold 61 shares every minute for three days. This sort of event happens in a multitude of shares every day.
Ignore the myths and conspiracy theories.
I'm certainly not Mr Johnson...whoever he is, but I am known by many people on the bulletin boards, as I try and post helpful information, most of it on a competitor board.
Cricket...dinners...minions... Life is obviously tough right now.
If you are in the business, can you explain something to me? It's something I've noticed often over the years, and, most recently, with regard to one of my other holdings. It is that, sometimes, you see a series of very small trades, either buys or sells, one after the other, in rapid succession, sometimes of just a single share - an action that seems to be pointless. I've read somewhere that this may be brokers signalling to one another. But is this the case?
I've been trying to buy more of these via Selftrade. A straight BUY will not go through, and even a limit order seems not to work, even though BUYs from other sources seem to go through at, and even below the price I'm offering. Do you have any advice?
MMs do not normally move the price around for no reason. They make their money out of making a market in a share and providing liquidity. Note the 2 large trades reported after the market closed. There may be further announcements in connection with these trades in due course if thresholds are crossed.
I suspect an institutional start of year portfolio adjustment. Could offer an opportunity for those interested in the midlands commercial proprty market?
