Price of stock after very good sales weekend. Possible Spreadbet or stock buy


Recommended Posts

HI all

I am a newbie in this World of stock trading. Other than buying a fair bit of Crypto a few years ago, I 've also bought some stock on another platform recently

I am looking at buying stock in some companies which have apparently had exceptional sales this weekend . I am considering spreadbetting on this as I realise ( or believe at least ) that the returns can be much greater with SB than with buying actual shares of the stocks.  But I also realise that the losses can be much greater and there is more of a chance that I will lose the entire spread

I understand that generally stock prices are often lower on Mondays, or can start out low anyway. My concern would be that if the sales boost received over the weekend doesn't feed through immediately on Monday morning , then the stocks may not increase. And if a typical Monday pattern ( and general pattern currently) is followed the they could go down before they go up, and my stop loss may kick in and I lose it all. I'm not sure if an increase in sales over a weekend ( or any other day ) would trigger a rise in stock price automatically or not? And whether that would generally be instant / upon re opening or not

Any suggestions ?  I'm not sure whether to list the companies that I am looking at on a group chat. But you may have an idea already anyway, but I may reveal this if the conversation becomes prodictive

Many thanks

Hi Warlord,

You always lose the entire spread - that's the difference between the bid and the offer price. Think of it as the commission for entering the trade, and then you win it back when / if it goes in the right direction. For example, EUR/CHF was trading sideways yesterday evening and I wanted to take a long position, but it had already gone to weekend spreads. It was 10623 sell and 10628 to buy so would have cost an initial £10 to go £2 a point.

To answer your question, NO!! A very good sales weekend will not feed into the stock price straight away because that information is not in the public domain yet. If sales are consistently better than expected it will be released as an earnings upgrade via trading update on the Regulatory News Service (RNS). Often, analysts will have an idea before the update, and the price starts to re-rate early. You can get ahead of the crowd if you've made real-world observations but also bear in mind that is a small sample size. Good luck

    • Stock Market Indices Overview: S&P 500, SPY, NASDAQ 100, QQQ, RUSSELL 2000, DAX 40, FTSE 100, ASX 200 Featuring Elliott Wave Technical Analysis Elliott Wave Analysis Indices: SP500 and NASDAQ 100 S&P 500 (SPX) and NASDAQ 100 (NDX): These indices show distinct corrective patterns. Today, we'll explore two alternative corrective counts: one indicating the low is already in place, and another suggesting the corrective pattern could double in size. It's crucial to exercise caution, especially for long positions. We'll discuss optimal entry points and stop placements to manage risks effectively. Russell 2000 (RUT) Current Status: The Russell 2000 is completing Wave (iv) and is expected to move higher. We will maintain our long positions. European Markets: DAX 40 and FTSE 100 Current Status: The European markets have yet to complete intermediate Wave (4). The patterns remain choppy, making it challenging to provide trade recommendations at this time. ASX 200 Medium-Term Outlook: The ASX 200 is anticipated to trade above and below the 8000 level in a series of Wave 4s, gradually edging higher. We will stay long in this market.

    • Ever feel like you're stuck in crypto traffic? Slow transactions and outrageous fees are the bane of using blockchains like Ethereum at their core (Layer 1). These networks can only handle a limited number of transactions per second, causing major congestion during peak hours. The result? Frustratingly slow processing and expensive fees for users.   But wait, there's hope! Layer 3 rollups are here to revolutionize the game. Imagine them as express lanes built on top of existing bypass roads (Layer 2 solutions). Layer 2 already helps by alleviating some of the traffic on the main highway (Layer 1). Layer 3 rollups take it a step further, adding dedicated express lanes to these bypass roads for super-fast processing. This innovative approach tackles Layer 1's congestion by distributing the workload across multiple layers, ultimately leading to faster, cheaper, and more scalable blockchain applications.   While specific layer 3 implementations are still under development, some projects are paving the way. Immutable X (IMX token) built on StarkNet (a Layer 2 scaling solution) and dYdX (DYDX token), a decentralized exchange on StarkNet, are both exploring layer 3 rollups to achieve even smoother transactions. Keep an eye out for zkLink Nova, a major player in the scalability game. This cutting-edge technology leverages the strengths of existing solutions to deliver groundbreaking performance. Backed by leading crypto institutions with over $23 million invested in the zkLink ecosystem, zkLink Nova is generating serious buzz ahead of its ZKL token listing on Bitget. Get ready for a smoother ride on the crypto highway!
