Odumbo is completely out of touch - thinks the USA is still high rated. Perhaps somebody ought to tell him ?

Pat494 started this thread Should be a volatile day today. How do I know ? Finspreads have pulled the plug on dealing ! They do when it gets rough.

I had that on Monday with them. They wouldn't let me sell part of my S&P position that I had open. It just kept saying the market had moved since I pressed the button. So I had to use a stop about about 5 points below the actual price to get them to close it and then the online platform said phone only after that. That's the problem with the SB companies when it gets volatile, they just won't let you trade, which is why stops and limits are so important with them IMO.

I found sometimes logging out and logging back in again can get the electronic trading back up and running.

Pete takes the honours ( honors) this week by pipping me by 1 point. Give Polly an extra peanut from me m8. The fundamentals are calling the shots imho but it's not so easy to see what is already priced in. Lots of selling on the rumour tho.

Interesting that the averages aren't doing too well in this climate.

Nice one Pete - about time you had a win.

Uffff, seems we placed in a bottom or at least very close to it. Need a breather amid big volatility, 1210 for me Pat please. Glad I picked a stock which has responded to the upside along with the markets, therefore, my recoup started, hands and feet fingers crossed, hehehe.

1212 for me this week.

Market breadth indicators that I follow are in the buy zone finally. They just need to turn back up again and break back above the 30% level and I'll be getting fully invested again. I sold my bonds that I bought for protection in April and have moved back into Silver and Nickel over the last 2 weeks. Could be a little premature but I have a target of 1460 for the S&P 500 by the end of the year as I don't see the world ending like the commentators are suggesting at the moment and think we still have wave 5 of this bull run to go yet before things get a bit iffy for a while.

Short term I think we go up a bit and then retest the recent low before moving higher again in a more meaningful way. Hopefully that is
