@Yellow I cant speak to other peoples reasons but my thought process, and I wouldnt be suprised if this strikes a chord with others, is that around late morning on monday I was becoming really pissed off with those in charge and honestly felt that the whole thing was beginning to look like the crime of the century!
My reason for jumping was that I thought that getting out whilst still in profit would have saved me from harbouring resentment which isnt good. Also the thought of booking a great christmas holiday for myself and her indoors somewhere sunny was suddenly looking infinitely more appealling than watching pennies constantly disappearing from players who I had bought in good faith whilst taking aim at goalposts that were in a different place at time of purchase.
Undoubtedly, you will be right about some of those who jumped, and I bet there are some who have overstretched that have carried on regardless. These ppl are the ones with proper balls, but I would suggest in their cases that lessons should be learned and if ppl are over exposed then the boom period were all hoping for may be the perfect time to address that
That's an entirely logical reason for getting out, feeling pissed off and resentful about it is no good. After all, when the fun stops, stop. I am sure that amongst the people panic selling because they saw drops for a few days in a row were plenty of people like yourself who weren't sure which direction the leadership was taking FI, which is a very different train of thought to 'shit, I'm in the red, bail out!'. Indeed, I had my own feelings on FI's direction that I alluded to in my email to FI.
Hopefully there is a lot of good come out of this. It's a tricky one for FI because they have to be incredibly mindful of what they communicate. Mike and Ciaran on the FIG podcast mention that dividends don't need addressing and all of a sudden the market starts going backwards. Some regular updates on order books, NASDAQ etc would be well received I think.

I think high could well be double this in a couple of months, he's getting better and better under the way ole wants to play and I think he's got goals in him this year.
I've got 510 at the moment and putting all my divs in as and when I get them. Pump!
@AndydfopT Not sure I bought some shares of him when first got on here few weeks ago and he's not really changed. Probably go up a bit but might be worth holding on till Euros and if he has a stella season in Prem could be putting Pickford under pressure for starting GK. I feel Pickford is too hot headed, he needs to mature and it may cost him the England spot.
