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

Nice chart from IG ...

Hey @dmedin,

Is that on the cash or forward chart for Greggs? I've tried to replicate the same layout on my phone and desktop but it's not showing that issue you're having. If it's on your desktop as part of your layout, can you remove the chart then re-add it and see if it's still not working. 

Let me know

It's sporadic and does not usually persist

@dmedin, after refreshing the page does it still persist? If so I would advise you to contact our technical team. This should not be happening especially when the charts are something you need for your technical analysis! 

Let me know

The butty is faltering.  I closed my position, although I kind of regret it now - look at that spread.  It doesn't make sense to enter a new trade now.

It effectively costs £16 to trade Greggs - seems like the permanent minimum spread, no matter what.  Just not worth it at this stage, until it makes a decisive move one way or the other.

The entire FTSE 250 is boosted by a stronger pound, so I doubt the wisdom of picking out individual stocks (a rising tide lifts all boats).  Then again it's cheaper to get leverage on Greggs than the entire FTSE 250 index.  But yes, buy and hold.  Only way to avoid these horrible 'sudden swings'.  Or buy call options, if you can.

Apropos of which, I must stop in by a Greggs at some point and try one of these.  I wonder if meat substitutes have any of the good things about meat (protein, vitamins and other essential minerals)?  If not, then what's the point - except for the purposes of virtue-signalling? 🤨

The spread on Greggs is still really big (16 seems to be the minimum, so if you want to SB on Greggs you pay IG £16 for the privilege - you pay less in commission if you just buy the shares outright) and it costs too much to bet on the FTSE 250.  It ain't great :(

I'm very undecided when I look at charts for shares.  It seems like the only way to trade is to put in a nice big stop (usually beneath large/gapping up green candles) and leave it to run it course (future-dated contract).  I can't see any other sensible way of doing it, considering short-term gaps and in this case the astronomical spread.  Even then it might just be better to buy some of the shares for real, where they are relatively cheap.

Will it fall back to one of these (possible incorrect because I drew them) support levels and present a good opportunity to buy back in? 🤔🥩  2120 would be ideal as you can see there was heavy buying up to that level, so it will probably hold up at that point.

Looks like this boat has sailed.  👺  Never mind, IG's spread on it is extortionate anyway.  This might be one to consider buying real shares.

    • Hi, no sb and cfd are the same but for taxation category purposes, the underlying market for both is the cfd market which the IG market tracks. If it was as you say it would beg the question who were you betting against? IG? IG are adamant they don't take the other side of client's bets and if they did and the regulator was to find out IG's long spell as a leading broker could be at an end. So their position is that they match trades in house and any over flow is hedged, so shorts may well turn out to be unborrowable.  
    • If it's your first foray into crypto, just buy bitcoin. Set aside an amount each month you can afford and buy bitcoin. Don't even bother looking at the price. DCA each month, stick it on a Trezor and forget it. Hopefully in a few years you'll have enough to retire. Everyone should have at least 5% of btc in their portfolio imho. Alternatively, if you're looking to set up a crypto "sh1tcoin" portfolio be prepared to dive in, deep, into research. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano, Tezos, Monero etc and these don't even touch on DeFi, Security Tokens, Lending, Staking etc. Have something like this: 40-60% Bitcoin (low risk - for crypto anyway) 30% Ethereum, Cardano, Tezos etc (Large Cap alt coins with medium risk) 15% Higher risk alt coins but higher reward (this is where your research comes in to find legit projects) 5% Small Cap coins, High leverage, full degenerate margin trading. Huge reward if you win but highly risky and if you lose all that 5% who cares? Your Bitcoin holdings should make up for the loss. But if it goes 10x then holy momma. p.s IMHO stay away from the likes of Ripple, Tron and Bitcoin SV.
