Shorting Unite Group

Well I might be too early (which, as per The Big Short, is the same as being wrong) but Unite's Quarterly Valuation Update includes this statement:

Quote

The positive valuation performance is supported by a strong start to the 2019/20 sales cycle which is now well underway. 67% of rooms are now sold for the next academic year with 57% being guaranteed by nominations agreements (66% and 56% at the same time last year).

If those universities providing those nominations agreements start to go bust then that should have a material impact on those valuations.

It's an interesting chart, lots of big tails, lots of gaps but certainly on a bullish run though just coming up to resistance before the all time high so would be expecting the bullish run to start to falter around here and start to think about what to do next, shoot for the high or turn down to regroup. Has already had 2 weeks on this straight run up so some flagging at least should be expected. Nelsy is right, it's tricky calling a turn on news without waiting for chart confirmation it often turns into a coin toss. You are right that too early is the same as wrong though surprisingly doesn't seem to bother many as they've been calling the big short since the start of 2016, so best to ignore in my opinion.

Listen to the news and be ready to act as the chart starts to react (if it does). Calling tops and bottoms is hard work but many do make a living out of it. They use strong support and resistance chart levels, their success rate is small but the risk is minimal, stop loss just beyond the entry S/R level, but the rewards can be very big if they catch a new impulse leg in the opposite direction.

 While the FT reports one successful student accommodation provider buying another from a major Canadian investor, it also carries the sad tale of another that funded itself from retail promising a 10% return on properties – the receivers are now chasing the individual investors for ground rents and service charges on empty student rooms. Don’t get me started about “mini-bonds” and London Capital and Finance – they give the bond market a bad name.

Which one do you think it is 😉

FT Alphaville: How a £100m student accommodation scheme went wrong (registration but not subscription required)

Buyers from the UK, Asia and the Middle East were offered “effortless” annual returns of 8-12 per cent if they bought student rooms in Stoke, Loughborough, Bradford, Preston, Leicester and Huddersfield. Currently, they are receiving nothing at all.

    • I trade leveraged futures on Binance so I'm going to miss them, not that much though cos I also use Bitget exchange, and they have high liquidity and low fees, So I will just move my funds there and continue leveraged trading.
    • If you've tried using Ethereum, you know it can get slow and expensive. Think of Starknet as a helper that makes everything faster and cheaper. It does this by taking a bunch of transactions, squishing them into one, and then processing that one. This means more transactions can happen at once without clogging up the system. For people making apps on the blockchain (they call these dApps), Starknet is like a dream come true because it lets their apps handle a lot more users without slowing down. It also gives them the freedom to make their apps work just how they want, making things better for users. When it comes to making money, Starknet charges fees to use its network and lets people 'stake' their coins – that's like putting your money in a savings account that helps the network run, and you get a little reward for that. So, what do you think about Starknet? It's all about helping Ethereum handle more action without any hassle. Could be a big deal for how we use digital money, right?
