  1. It varies ... lol @ claim of 24/7* trading, with this footnote: * 24/7 excludes the 6 hours from 10pm Fri to 4am Sat, and 20 mins just before the weekday market opens on Sunday night. Do IG understand what 24/7 means?
  2. Fund manager Mark Denning, who was part of a team running more than £229 billion of assets at Capital Group, has been forced to resigned after allegedly breaking investment rules. A BBC Panorama investigation – set to air tonight at 8.30pm – will accuse Denning of investing in shares which were also held by the funds he worked on. This is seen as a conflict of interest within fund management as a manager could potentially profit at the expense of his clients - the fund manager could use the significant assets of a fund to push up the share price of a company, benefiting his other investments. https://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/news/196565/fund-manager-resigns-ahead-of-damning-bbc-panorama-investigation.aspx And how do his fellow financial professionals react to this? Well they call him a 'uniquely talented' colleague. Seems that his only fault was to get caught screwing the dumb retails clients over. Let's face facts ... if you're 'little people' then you aren't safe ANYWHERE in the financial markets. You WILL get screwed over and eaten alive.
  3. Good luck trying to keep up with all that 🤣
  4. Boeing has just made a big smelly doo doo in the bed! 😮
  5. Almost blown through my cash. Pretty much given up now. It's pointless. I'll spend what little I've got left on booze and hookers.
  6. Not even the 'best minds' or the best breeders of Wall Street can time the markets, follow the trends up and down or estimate the 'intrinsic value' of firms. What makes us think we can, when all the evidence shows that 99% of 'day traders' lose all their money
  7. How's that 'rally' in Brent crude coming along?
  8. So ... anyone managed to make any money off this lark yet? Didn't think so
  9. Well, according to Darwin the 'great success' in life consists of nothing more than continuous breeding. That Darwin fella had a lot of experience with excessive breeding. A bit like that Rees-Mogg ****.

  11. Will be lucky to get returns of 6 - 7 % nowadays. Always remember that the only people who get much richer in the world of finance are people who are rich to begin with! Get out of this as soon as you get a chance and collect 'professional fees' and 'spreads', because that's the only reliable source of income in the world of trading.
  12. Apropos of market abuse, it must be good to play golf with Orange Fury and place your bets before the tweets ... Unknown actors may have made billions from the turmoil Donald Trump has created in the markets through erratic tweets, shoot-from-the-hip foreign policy, and the trade war with China, according to a new report. A Vanity Fair deep-dive into stock market activity has uncovered several instances where advantageous trades were made suspiciously close to market-moving events. https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/mystery-traders-made-1-8bn-191335812.html
