RE: Rooney loss
There Isnt a single person on here who has never lost on a trade imo. If they havent they need to forget fi and head to wall st. Your trading skills could be gordon gekko esque!
You have said "Gordon Gekko-esque" which was the thing i had bet Steve Beaglehole would NEVER happen. Thanks, i now owe him a postal order for 12 shillings.
RE: How much cash do you keep on hand for instant punts?
@Ollie drop cash in when needed. Sometimes i fly out to Switzerland to collect my briefcase of cash only to find that one of my great aunts has made off with a sum and i have a very expensive house brick.
Luckily the exchange rate of swiss house bricks is CHF 1: GBP £10,000
RE: Wayne Rooney testimonial match coming Thursday
@Keegan's-Bluff said in Wayne Rooney testimonial match coming Thursday:
I have no problem with riskier, more speculative trades as long as it is rooted in the principles of the Index - buying the future prospect of a Dividend return.
There's lots of hyping on this forum and elsewhere with the sole object of scalping other traders. But when it can be argued there is some chance - however unlikely - of Dividends at some point then that's an inevitable, but often ugly aspect of a 'Free Market'.
But I've chosen Rooney to highlight, because he had NO chance of winning any dividends this week, and practically ZERO chance of returning any ever again. He is the perfect example of exploitation of a situation to pervert the absolute fundamental of the Index; Dividend Returns.
Not only is that unhealthy to the market as a whole in principal, but it also has a real cost to the traders as detailed above who have been left with a worthless asset and a sense of confusion.
There is also a cost that is rarely mentioned, and that's to the traders who are hyping such worthless assets. They are not developing as traders by relying on such means to try and make money.
The ability to pump and dump Wayne Rooney should be called out for what it is; ridiculous and corrosive - not explained away as a bastion of free society.
RE: January transfer rumours
I like to buy some random Italians. Lazzari or Soualiho Meite for absolute buttons...wait till they don't move anywhere in Jan and then sell them at a loss.
It's a tried and tested approach that has served me well over the years. Sometimes if i time it right i can devalue the player myself by starting a panic from the sell queue, driving my own price down and then IS'ing in frustration.
