Argo Blockchain PLC listed on the London Stock Exchange

Recommended Posts

I was very sceptical of Argo Blockchain. However with Bitcoin prices rising significantly and I mean significantly and this announcement along with the recent share price reaction then it is certainly an interesting one. I am invested in Vela Technologies PLC which has around 1% stake in this. However Vela's share price is shockingly bad. It may catch up but who knows and that is for another thread. 

I include below the announcement made via RNS today by Argo Blockchain PLC.

Strategic Partnership and Share Swap

I also include the latest chart including the latest breakout.

It finished up by 35% but it was higher than this and I recall seeing 40% and possibly even higher if memory serves me correct.

Argo is still going upwards. They released this RNS this morning:

It went up another 26% today and is now trading at around 6p. I include the latest chart 'daily' below with the volume. As you can clearly see that volume has increased significantly over the past few days.

The price has gone above its 20, 50 and 100 DMA but the 200 DMA is no where to be seen on the 'daily'!

I am a bit sceptical of AIM listed companies in general based on experience. 

Argo's RNS states in relation to the latest deal of up to £1m per month revenues. Now this could just as easily mean £100k or £500k. Up to £1m is very vague. It does not mean this company will def. generate £1m of revenues every month. AIM RNS's have a way of spinning the spiel into something which sounds fantastic. 

It will be interesting to see what happens tomorrow and Friday with the share price.

Argo Blockchain PLC

Trading Statement

https://www.investegate.co.uk/argo-blockchain-plc--arb-/rns/trading-statement/201906030700078473A/

I just checked the share price and it is up over 20%.

For those who do not want to invest in Bitcoin or even trade it, this could allow those to participate in any Bitcoin bull run without having to actually invest or trade it. 

As I have stated on past occasions, it is about identifying any breakouts and potential trends manifesting themselves as early as possible. This could be a 'potential'. I say 'potential' as it is the AIM Market after all!

Argo seems to be following the lead from Bitcoin and other 'alt coins'. It recent surge and breakout is impressive. Whether it can sustain this is a different issue altogether. 

It is trading above its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages when looking at the 'daily'. I include the chart below.

I wanted to also share the current 'Significant Shareholders' in Argo Blockchain PLC. There are some large institutions who have invested such as 'Miton Asset Management', 'Janus Henderson Investors' and 'Jupiter Asset Management'.  

https://www.argomining.co/significant-shareholders

These large institutions will have conducted due diligence far better than the ordinary investor one would like to think. As long as Bitcoin keeps climbing then I can see Argo continuing to rise along with it. 

This could be a potential 'Long' trade based on its current price action and trending direction.

@cryptotrader,

On IG's UK Spread Betting platform the current buy price is 8.522 and sell price is 8.180. So the spread is 0.342. If you were looking at a longer term investment then acquiring it from a broker that offers share dealing services may be an option. This will include dealing charges on buying and selling plus stamp duty on purchase. 

Vela Technologies PLC which I am invested in through my share dealing broker has a stake in Argo Blockchain PLC. I personally am not invested in Argo Blockchain PLC directly. 

However, its recent share price appreciation is impressive.

@TheGuru12,

You may be right. I do not own shares directly in this company. This is a company where IG have interviewed the director, Mike Edwards. If you go back to the start of this thread then you will see that James from IG has from time to time contributed to this thread. 

If you look at my initial comments on this company at the start of this thread then you can see my thoughts when this company was going through the IPO. 

Your comment is that it is an absolute sucker stock, like I said you may be right, but you present no arguments to support your comments.

From a price action perspective the share has actually performed rather well. Price action is king and this is where from a trading perspective one must not let their personal emotions cloud their judgement when trading based on price action. Have a look at the price action from May 2019 onwards.

Let's face it, All the people that made money off this rubbish have done already done. Let's get Bitcoin (and associated "Altcoins") down to it's true value, A vanity token at best. It's like those tokens you get in from competitions, cash value 0.000000000001p.... 

On the other side of the coin, No pun intended. The technology needs to mature first, 5 - 10 years perhaps, Currently now a database is just as good. Then it will be used by alot of institutions but until then.... Mining is dead in the water, Alot of these so called tokens now don't need to be mined.

@TheGuru12,

You need to separate Blockchain technology and the opportunities it presents from most of the rubbish and junk altcoins.

Argo Mining Capacity Significantly Expanded

https://www.investegate.co.uk/argo-blockchain-plc--arb-/rns/argo-mining-capacity-significantly-expanded/201907040700054359E/

Even if you think this company is a pile of junk which it could be then go with the price action and momentum. Sometimes the most rubbish companies on AIM deliver some of the best short term returns based purely on hype, spin and momentum. 

Now only the end of year accounts will show how much turnover this company is generating and how much profits it is creating. That will judge whether this company is hot air, junk, garbage or a company with high risk potential for significant revenue increase and substantial profit potential.

For every fanatical advocate of crypto there is always someone who vehemently rejects it. Yin and yang.

@cryptotrader,

Yes you are right. This is why one cannot get emotionally attached to any specific Crypto. No one knows right now which will succeed and which will fail. The only thing I am personally convinced of is that 90% of the junk will fail. Only the strongest and robust will survive of which Bitcoin is most likely to survive and will end up being the reserve digital currency within the Crypto Universe.

Even if you think this company is utter rubbish the price action is strongly upward trending. It is making new highs and gathering momentum. Now being on AIM will help it far more than being listed on NEX Exchange. 

The rise could just be speculative and a dose of pump and dump. There is nothing wrong in trading such price behaviour. Ensure you have a stop loss in place and ride the trend until it reverses of course.

The news flow is certainly flowing but one must be careful of the share price being pumped up and pushed down. 

This is the recent RNS that was released by the company to the markets:

The news flow just keeps on coming with Argo Blockchain. IG covered it over year ago but there has not been much since from IG. 

Argo Blockchain PLC

Update- Proposed Partnership with Hive Blockchain

https://www.investegate.co.uk/argo-blockchain-plc--arb-/rns/update--proposed-partnership-with-hive-blockchain/201909030700038812K/

Based on recent positive news flow and positive price action I am surprised IG have been quiet on this particular company.

Below is the recently chart 'daily' showing the price moves building an upward trend.

Ok so Argo have released their interim results via RNS to the market this morning.

Argo Blockchain PLC

Interim Results

https://www.investegate.co.uk/argo-blockchain-plc--arb-/rns/interim-results/201909170700054625M/

The share price is actually lower after the RNS than what it was on my previous post over a week ago. This is typical AIM for you. Profits are taken prior to the results being released.

The figures are miniscule. If the price begins to rise in the next couple of months then it may be a combination of speculative money and anticipation of far better revenue and profit growth for the months ahead. The price action will tell us what the market expects six months into the future.

Another RNS released by Argo. The news is really flowing out of this company. They are really going for it. However, whether this will be successful or end up a failure, time will tell.

Revenues Increase 75% in Third Quarter

https://www.investegate.co.uk/argo-blockchain-plc--arb-/rns/revenues-increase-75--in-third-quarter/201910080700020507P/

The price action is not currently supporting the news flow. Now it could be that the news flow is a bit of 'noise' and a smokescreen.

It does seem to be making a series of 'higher highs' and 'higher lows' but unless it consolidates and continues its upward movement then I do fear potentially more downside. Bitcoin's price will be critical to the fortunes of this companies share price.

    • Hey @dmedin. That news piece is something I long suspected. If anyone can move the market with just one tweet then why shouldn't the cronies profit from it. I'm just surprised this has taken so long to get to the "news".
    • Ok, so I took this approach to the next level. Rather than telling the algorithm enter long at 25% and enter short at 75% levels, I decided to let the algorithm decide itself at what levels its best to enter short or long. This simplifies the strategy and boosts its gains dramatically. Top level stats over 100,000 5min candles: Gain: +1,307% % of winning trades: 60% Starting with a £2000 account, after 1 year and 1 quarter that account would have grown to almost £30k (£28k). The equity curve looks also a lot more stable, too. I resolved the issue with the lot size, this is now a formula. Unfortunately we still have 3 negative months, but overall the max runup is a lot higher than the max drawdown. Overall time in market is only 20%, so there should be the opportunity to run multiple of this strategy on different assets simultaneously to further boost the return. If let's say 3 of these programs could run simultaneously and deliver similar results you could grow £2000 to £100k within about 18 months. Still not as good as the results of the few world-class top traders like Ross Cameron from Warrior Trading, etc but a start nonetheless. The variables which the program optimised are the following: Take Profit for Long Positions: 84 points Take Profit for Short Positions: 70 Points Entry LvL for Long Positions: 23 Points below the low of previous day Entry LvL for Short Positions: 7 Points below the high of previous day Interestingly, it turned out the strategy works best without a set stop-loss, but just to close out any open positions at 21.00 o'clock at night, if not already closed by the take profit rule. I'm gonna simulate this on NASDAQ next. Obviously will need to find out the 4 variables again, as these will be subject to the Index where this is traded.   What do you guys think? Worth a shot this strategy?  
    • Lool, I'm sorry for my first post here, but it's funny :)
