Greggs: the awesome power of a vegan butty

Recommended Posts

It's moving up from and 'oversold' condition.  :D

Wonder if it has any further to fall.  The 200 day SMA is approaching.  Directional Movement?

It looks like it is heading back down again, by Jove!

I am such an idiot for going in and out of short trades on this stock.

I'm just an idiot in general :D

Greggs is still falling.  A free moneymaking machine ... make the most of it. 

I sound like one of those 'get your PPI claim in before it's too late' advertisements ...

I hide my open order in order to protect my modesty but I'm short to 1800.

:D

It's been 'oversold' for ages and finally there's been a buying spree!

Maybe time to think about going long, perhaps on a future contract.

UBS upped its rating on shares of bakery chain Greggs to 'buy' from 'neutral' on Wednesday, lifting the price target to 2,300p from 1,880p as it pointed to "significant" growth opportunity.

Greggs has bent me over and gone in dry today ... I despair of trading and investing.  I just don't see how anyone who isn't an insider can make money from it.

2% savings accounts beckon.

Gone long on a March 2020-dated future.  100 point stop, 300 point target.

Seriously CBA with the 'technical analysis' nonsense any more.

Let's see if we can get a couple hundred points off this long.  A pick-up in volume along with crossing above RSI >30 and price is above 10-day SMA.

Surely people will want their vegan sausage rolls even when all hell breaks loose in Euroland.

IG's punitive spread on Greggs makes it impossible to get a profitable trade on just now ... forget about it.

Are we going to resume our short, my bonnie wee bairns?  What was UBS' intervention all about?

A lower high or just sideways action, my bonnie bairns?  🤔  I had my stop set just above the most recent high, but I panicked at the prospect of it going even higher and covered my short at a big loss.  :(

It's make or break time, my bonnie bairns.  Been consolidating long time, converging to the mean - now it looks as if the uptrend will continue.

Zut alors!  Wonder if it will break 1952, if so then I might be tempted to short it.  :(

This could have a lot further to go.  Maybe it will fill that gap :(

Do you think it has further to fall?

there was a lot of interest in this one between Mid Feb & Mid May, those holders must still be there, so they may take some shaking out. 1700 must hold for them. I think they'll hold on for a while, unless there's some sort of market shock

Greggs reported that total sales rose 12.4% for the six weeks to 9 November, and it now expects 2019 pre-tax profit to be above previous estimate

 

Maybe UBS was right, couple of months back?  Or could it turn out to be another good chance to go short on the vegan butty 🤣

    • Start the conversation The US election is scheduled for Tuesday 3 November 2020, when all 50 states and Washington DC will cast their votes. The vote spans six different time zones, so the first exit polls will be available at around 11pm (EST) when West Coast voting closes. In the UK, that will be around 4am (GMT) on Wednesday 4 November 2020. The election is likely to create opportunities for traders, with price movements expected across a range of forex pairs, indices and commodities in the run-up to polling day. Volatility related to the election could continue until congress certifies the result on Wednesday 6 January 2021, or even until the winner is inaugurated on Wednesday 20 January 2021. What should traders expect to see during the US election? All US markets tend to experience increased volatility in the run up to a presidential election, including USD forex pairs, indices and commodities. That’s because many investors will attempt to lock in positions before the result is announced – using polls to gauge public sentiment. The aim is to take full advantage of the price moves that occur when the country’s political direction is confirmed. At the top level, early indications suggest that the following could be on the cards if one of these two main candidates win: Donald Trump A Trump win could see an escalation of the trade war, potentially causing problems for some US exporters and having a negative impact on the value of the dollar. However, this effect could be offset by reassurances that tax cuts and deregulation will continue – boosting the US economy. Joe Biden A Biden win could see tensions in the trade war cool, providing a boost to US exporters and the dollar. However, these effects could be offset by tax increases for high-income households, and more limited deregulation.   How will markets react to the different candidates? Market commentary by IG Senior Market Analyst Joshua Mahony Stocks Markets hate uncertainty, and historically the perception has been that a new president might bring policies that could be harmful for stocks. This happened in 2016 when analysts were confident that a Trump presidency would spark a market collapse. But, we are now seeing that same fear creep in as people consider a Biden presidency and the potential uncertainty it could cause. Biden is openly more left-leaning, and his policies are expected to be geared towards human needs rather than those of investors and traders. This sentiment isn’t helped by suggestions that Biden would reverse Trump’s tax cuts, and it is likely that markets will rise alongside the potentially increased chance of a Trump victory as we approach the election. USD The value of a currency is supposed to reflect the health of an economy and its future prospects. Many are expecting Biden to be less focused on the markets than his Republican opponent, so the dollar could weaken in the event of a Biden victory. However, this effect could be offset if Biden is able to improve relations between the US and China after years of market anxiety. In this scenario, it would be the Chinese yuan which may benefit the most, with the trade war having sparked huge upside for USD/CNH. Keep in mind that if the wider markets fall on a Biden victory – including US stocks and indices – the dollar would likely rally in the short-term to reflect a risk-off move as investors turn to USD. Gold The prospect of a more expansive fiscal policy under Biden, and from a government which is happy to embark on substantial spending programmes, could provide a boost to precious metals. There’s a caveat here too, because in the past precious metals have also followed the same patterns as the stock markets during times of crisis. So, any collapse in equity markets that may come from a change at the White House could drag gold lower in the immediate period. Plus, while Trump has finally seen the kind of stimulus he would have hoped for, a Biden win could result in a more substantial stimulus package if the Democrats gain a foothold in Congress.   How are you trading?
