FTSE pays it's div on only one day per week, close on Tuesday.

Where the rest of the global markets pay the div each working day, if there is a div.

Just noticed that I have also given the div for the following Monday, as well as this week. That would be the reason for 6 numbers(6 days).

Morning All

Very volatile and negative in Asia today.
China down over 3% on broker GDP down grades.

Sell into strength might offer the better rewards.

Morning everyone.
No crystal ball gazing on direction from me - its too wild.
I closed out all my positions on Friday and I'm waiting for some snaffling opportunities.

FTSE seems to have forgotten how to go up.

ftse at 5072 implies dow being down 197pts

Anyone worried about their Long positions?
