    MrXxx got a reaction from Bricks & Mortar in Credit deflation and the reflation cycle to come.   
    The answer?...gaming it...I walked up to a group of `locusts` hassling Mr Yellow Sticker Man with a few reduced items in the top of my basket and  said " I can't believe how much they reduced that steak by, the packaging must cost more than that...must be because they have so much of it!" ...suddenly they swarmed off and Mr YSM said "We've not reduced any meat yet?!", "no" I said, " but you will be before they return won't you?!"...we both laughed and I went home with some reductions :-)

    MrXxx got a reaction from Option5 in I don't want to die. I want special treatment   
    This is what annoys me about that country, liberalism has gone too far!...I am not racist or prejudice but why should we have Islamic or Judaic legal exceptions in a country where the legal system is based on Christian principles?...This is not tolerated in those countries where the legal system is based on these religious foundations (quite rightly so), as an atheist I do not expect the law to be flexible for my lack of beliefs, and if I am not happy living in such a society/community I accept that I am free (and obliged) to move to one that suits me!
     All this politically correct/liberal attitude is doing is helping to `fuel` (and justify?) the rise of far right parties/extremism.

    The last quote appears to reflect my feelings towards the UK...perhaps I am not the only one?

    Once a company goes ex dividend you dont get the dividend.Royal Mail has gone ex dividend today so before the market opened they were ex dividend,so before the market opened the shares would be in the order book minus the 7.9p dividend or whatever it is.Anyone buying last night would get the dividend,but of course the shares almost always go down the next day the dividend.

    Good lad, I need some company!  Thinking the poor old FTSE may, selectively,  just have its day!  But again, need to be picky (no tracker for me). 
    Pretty ideal for us souls in that all this is the best of a bad bunch.  AsiaPac doing all right though so worth keeping a broad and open mind.
    I'm happy with my income portfolio as it gets tested.  The ups and downs are a bit harsh but needs to be worn in like a pair of new shoes. 
    I could probably take a 20% fall on the already beaten ones I have which may be a worse case but will now look at hedging to cushion that.  The wrong thing to do for me would be to buy this stuff for the long term and then bail too soon.
    Yep, cash flow is key - will sort out the fake high div players from the golden ones, assuming they don't cut their divs to buy up the fallen!
    Anyways, this board is in the right place at the right time!

    'Mr Powsney said: “Safeguarding Fred’s memory is an absolute must. This place is too important to let go as it’s such a major part of Bolton’s history and heritage. It mustn’t be lost. '
    Gift it to the charity then, you greedy cunt.
    Just another idiot.

    So, £200k turnover, out of that about £65k profit (35%?) at best, so a 8% return on £750k investment before you have paid yourself a salary...a good `investment`?

    MrXxx got a reaction from stokiescum in UK housing transactions down 15% yoy   
    Sounds like someone there made a good decision and another a bad one...OK, didn't sell at peak value, but not far off it!...prices are only going in one direction for the next 3~5 years.

    MrXxx got a reaction from M.C. UK in Credit deflation and the reflation cycle to come.   
    This (isa, with etf index trackers) was on my `to do list` for about 6 months but I just haven't got round to doing it...now to me it seems like a better option to stay in cash and wait for the dust to settle, what are others thoughts/opinions?

    MrXxx reacted to Funn3r in Credit deflation and the reflation cycle to come.   
    @dgul explained it well I thought but just to be sure - a stop loss is a misnomer because it doesn't stop your loss. It should really be called auto-sell-attempt or something like that. 
    Supposing the price of Slavebox Housebuilding is hovering about 110 and you set a stop-loss at 100. Suddenly there is some bad news and the price falls to 65 in just a few minutes. It will tear through your 100 on the way down but you will still be selling at 65 not 100. 
    Assuming you can sell at all - why would anyone be buying after the shock discovery that Slavebox used radioactive asbestos in construction of all their houses...

    TA=Technical analysis-charts
    For any moving average strategy to work you need prolonged movements above and below your MA's.
    To me,for any strategy to work,you need to have a good grasp of the fundamentals and then use that to select which shares to apply TA to.Just my views.
    take HSBC.Welcome to whipsaw world using a 50 week MA.

    Whereas with Apple,you might have made money
     
    It most likely was.Depends on the stock and the whether your oppo can sell enough to move it.

    MrXxx reacted to dgul in Credit deflation and the reflation cycle to come.   
    TA = technical analysis = the process of looking at the way the price has been moving to predict the future price (including all these little oscillations).  It is the opposite of fundamental analysis, the process of looking at what's happening in the real world to predict the future price.
    The thing is, every man and his dog is using TA, which means that it isn't going to be as simple as the guy claims.  What's more, the gains have to come from somewhere -- it isn't magic money, but comes from another's loss.  My take on TA is that the 'other's loss' is usually my loss because there are clever people out there with more control of the market that'll manipulate things better than I can read them (or something like that).

    MrXxx got a reaction from M.C. UK in John Lewis profits slump 99% in 'challenging times'   
    Yes, but I still have the `novelty` of feeling like a customer unlike the other supermarkets where I am just someone who is `getting in their way` whilst they are stacking their shelves! :-)
