yes surprised its dead,i put some posts about Tesco,fair reply to be honest.Just noticed a calc i'd done on Royal Mail in April that they would turn down at 529,they peaked oat 527 and headed south.
I get caught up in racing a lot and don't follow shares daily as a rule,but would anybody be interested in some buy and sell points that i reckon are coming up?[Blackrock gold and mining soon i reckon. See if they tally with your own opinion.I would be  ery interested in anybodys fundamental approach to my opinions,of course tecnical as well.

I don't do the AIM market,but i've just missed my buy point at 214 on Blackrock World Mining Trust.Lets see what happens.

I wish I had avoided aim too.
Have three aim shares left might just cut and run with the loss and never go back.

As a new and inexperienced pi I thought good gains could be made on the smaller miners.
Will have to put it down to experience and just focus on ftse shares.
The loss is luckily countered by a few decent wins on the horses so had done luck.

Yes horses are ok,but dreadfully tiring.Besides gone are the days when you could spot a horse with 2 stone in hand e.g. Red Striker winning at Southwell off 98,won the Greenals at Haydock off 144.If i did research into the stock market i could probably make decent money.Problem is,is that when you get older and have more than enough money, its hard to do it all esp when you end up exhausted.
Still i love the challenge!!.You will find as you get older,you learn how to make money long term.Problem is that you then don't have enough years left to make millions!!!!.In reality if people know the true saying that "there's no such thing as a quick buck",meaning it doesn't work,then they should reason that the opposite,"the slow buck" could well work!!,in fact it does!!.
making money is cyclical,such as the price of commodities boomed a few years ago,just as they also did in the 70's,it repeats itself.research going back years can help to spot this.i'll add more later.

I wish I had started saving/investing more when younger. If started in early 20s I'd be in far better place.
Shares are a tough gig I have to keep reminding myself it's long term gain so dips now are not a problem.
Was going to take a small profit on a gold miner but decided to leave it as a long term investment. Price now dipped so it's a loss.
Could if sold and used profit to buy back in cheaper with more shares. Hindsight!!

Sorry for delay.Its probably best to trade in shares that are more popularly traded,Vodaphone etc,less chance of a balls up.Gold is about the the right price fundamentally, we must remember that i 1980 it suddenly overshot it by over 150%.Basically it spiked.No reason why it wont do again.
As for generally making money its best to avoid stupid betting like on Football.Who would have thought that Chelsea would have beaten Arsenal on current form?, or that Man City would have lost?.
for my part i'd rather pick value like Poyle Vinnie that let me down for a bit yesterday.In the past ive had Spanish Don at 100-1 as my second choice and Scatter Dice as my first choice in the Ces.Iwas at Ascot unable to use the exchange,i had a big bet on Dance and dance but couildnt lay off in the stewards at 4/6.Later on that day i bet a horse that i found out later was 800 on betfair and got beat in a 3 way photo touching 2.1 in running.Now thats the way to go,not 1/2 in a footy match.Im still annoyed that i put a lay in at 1/7 eagle Top,i touched 1.3,stupid or what?.Anyway I'm rambling.
I had a chart of Billiton on my favourites in 1997 [the only one in fact.]Altho I'd told numerous people that Gold had bottomed at 250[a figure that i'd had since 1981 using Elliot wave],i declined to punt Billiton at £1 a share,they peaked at £25 !!!!.The reason i reckon is that i had nobody to talk it over or discuss it with.Its no good asking Brokers or Financial advisers,i still have the letter telling me to buy Marconi!!!!!!Good advice is hard to come by,and its best to remember that nobody gets it right all the time,[including me}.But if theres any other person out there as well as money treee that would like to comment please do,we may all come up with a fdew good gems that we all agree on and make some money.Whats to lose?.it will be fun!Please excuse punc,Grammar etc.

my portfolio has been beaten black and blue over the last week, so I have to agree that the 100 is probably safer.
you live and learn, the miners sink with the gold price which is ob expected but they dont seem to rise with it :-(

Tesco is now rallying,but its headed below 120.the footsie still has a way to go before its peak so Tesco will come back eventually,even if its for a nice 50% rise.

Hit 197 today. You still think it will slip again?

Glencore is looking like a precarious recovery play to me. Been coming back as it may have been oversold but if the  predicted recession bites it may be one of the first to plummet. One to keep a close eye on.
Report jollyswagman October 9, 2015 9:30 PM BST
imo glencore is a basket case and will be taken down by their huge debts and derivatives position. not oversold at all but benefiting from the latest rise in stock markets generally. i think they will go the way of lehman.
Report treetop October 11, 2015 2:02 PM BST
Inclined to agree swag, there are gains to be made playing the volatility but it could end up like pass the parcel if this mini recovery turns itself off,then .........

Most def not buying aim shares again. It would seem many are lifestyle companies that produce nothing but allow a few to claim a good wage and expenses.
