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

    • KO Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Daily Chart, The Coca-Cola Company, (KO) Daily Chart KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Flat POSITION: Minute wave {c} of 2.   DIRECTION: Bottom in wave {c}. DETAILS: With yesterday’s session we’ve had a spike in volume on the bull side, which could make us start thinking the correction is either completed, or soon to be. We have almost reached 1.618 {c} vs. {a}., but more importantly we have reached the base of the leading diagonal in wave 1, where many times support is found.         KO Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4Hr Chart, The Coca-Cola Company, (KO) 4Hr Chart KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Flat POSITION: Wave (v) of {c}. DIRECTION: Bottom in wave (v). DETAILS: Here on the intraday chart it’s easier to see the five wave move in wave {c} which seems to have unfolded nicely. Looking for a clear sign of a bottom in place.        As of April 18, 2024, Elliott Wave analysts closely monitor the daily and 4-hour charts of The Coca-Cola Company (Ticker: KO) to provide insightful technical forecasts. These Elliott Wave predictions play a crucial role in identifying potential trends and reversal points in the stock's price movement.     * KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* The Elliott Wave analysis on the daily chart of Coca-Cola shows a corrective phase within a flat structure, identified as minute wave {c} of 2. This phase is categorized under a counter trend function, suggesting that the ongoing correction is approaching completion. The recent trading session marked a significant increase in volume on the bullish side, hinting at a nearing end to the correction. Technically, the price has approached the critical 1.618 Fibonacci extension of wave {c} relative to {a}, reaching a key support level at the base of the leading diagonal from wave 1—a typical zone for finding support.   * KO Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, Coca-Cola’s stock exhibits a detailed structure of the corrective phase, clearly depicting wave (v) of {c}. This finer resolution allows for a clearer visualization of the complete five-wave move within wave {c}, indicating the likelihood of a bottom formation. Analysts are keenly observing for definitive signs that confirm the bottom is firmly in place, signaling potential bullish reversals.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta   Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!    
    • I came across an interesting new meme token called EPIK that launched on the Solana blockchain earlier this month. It features a playful little duck character and has been gaining traction since its debut. In my opinion, several factors contribute to EPIK's potential. Meme coins naturally attract attention, and EPIK's unique duck character design helps it stand out. Additionally, backing from crypto influencers has fueled market interest. It seems on-chain activity is also picking up steam, with daily TV reaching millions of dollars and the number of holders approaching 10,000. With a strong community presence in both English-speaking and Chinese-speaking communities, a recent listing on Bitget potentially exposing it to a much wider audience, coupled with the potential for further price increases, I believe EPIK is a project to keep an eye on.
