Greggs: the awesome power of a vegan butty

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

@dmedin I know this is too late as the market is now closed but looking at your RSI indicator, this afternoon did look like a good time to short ready for next week.

at quite a point here  - there was a lot of interest here earlier in the year

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 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.

    • By the way if its a system you want to demo or try, I trade US 500 and Russell Long only, with no stops, I would not trade with no stops for gold, oil etc but am happy to do it on US indices as nothing recovers as quickly as US markets, so if I am wrong i just hold it until it goes in profit again, when I am wrong I wait until market recovers, so sometimes when market has gone against me I have to wait 4 -8 weeks before it recovers but this way means no drawdowns only overnight currency charge which is minima. You need to trade wihin your accoutn to do this as you need to make sure your balance is big enough when you get it wrong. You could try it on IG demo account  to see if it worked for you.
    • Yes your balance needs to be above 0, that's your most important number don't fall into the trap of thinking if its above 0 you can put trades on, you can but your balance needs to be big enough that if they go against you, you are still above 0, if not you get messgage from IG to add funds to your account or IG will take you out of trades, so if you had a trade you wanted to keep on it would now be taken out as a loss as funds in balance are in minus. You need a big enough number left in the balance column that if your trades go against you you can still hold if you want to.
