UK Stock Market

The UK stock markets are also known as shares markets locally, the main exchange for shares is the London Stock Exchange which is divided into the FTSE 100 (large caps), FTSE 250 (mid caps) and the AIM (small caps). You would think the majority of volume would be in the FTSE 100 companies, but in the UK the AIM market holds some great volume and can have some great opportunities. As the UK shares market is one of the biggest in the world you will always find a broad range of companies involved in every sector in almost every country.

Penny stocks in the UK, also known as penny shares locally, are very popular with retail traders because they are inexpensive. This allows traders to start a portfolio without needing a lot of capital. They are more speculative and volatile than stocks of well-established companies and can make significant moves in a short period of time. UK penny stocks have a low value, a relatively small market capitalization and the company usually has a short operating history.

KOD Crunch Time - Good Potential Upside

Good narrow price range with symmetrical pattern strangulation may stimulate some moves to the upside. Typically the price action pattern is not a reversal pattern so positive projections need to be concidered. Look for strong pushes to the upside breaking 0.35 followed by test of the next logical high at 0.50 area. There may be some shallow price challenges ...

Trying to profit from CLLN? Beware!

Bottom fishers can profit once the initial selling has subsided, but must get out before the share price resumes its downward trend. Otherwise they'll be nursing losses for a long time, or until the company turns itself around.

This is a classic set up for me, oversold technicals, strong engulfing bar on high volume alongside decent financials. Looking at a short term trade: TP 460 SL 380

SRES - Move to Breakout Buy

The difficulty here is that price is doing what we more or less had planned with the exception that the RSI is not confirming strength and conviction of the move as yet. Still good buy potential - depending on your strategy a close above the 0.17 would signal a breakout buy and the next target level would be 0.27. This would be a significant level to move higher ...

This trade doesn't fit my usual criteria, however, the potential upside outweighs potential risk. Price is holding the 200ma, volume is low, however with positive news, earnings, director dealings and increase in fund purchases I don't think it will be long until we hit 70p. Worth a buy on a break of today's high. Tp 70 Sl 35 This is not a trade ...

Rio Tinto - Up or Down ?

Rio has successfully completed a rising wedge pattern - broke down the support line and now it's slowly going to test it. It seems like very likely the support becomes a new resistance and stock is going to go down. However, it has also stopped at the 50MA with slightly increased volume, which may signal also a support. Now, it is crucial to watch the lower trend ...

Potential triple bottom formation. Look for break above neckline resistance for confirmation. Bounce off 200MA acting as a filter for long term up trend continuation.

Bulk of mine finance package now arranged, small residual left, which has been recently reduced in size. Finalising this should trigger re-rating. Excellent economics when fully developed. Approaching break of 200MA, RSI climbing and MACD looking good. Triple bottom in place.

GSK: I spy with my little eye .. [possible trend change]

It was Aug 1 and I was looking through the various constituents of my watchlist and I came to GSK on the FTSE. GSK has been trending down since Jun 22 and I was looking to see how that trend was developing. What I saw caught my attention. The last candle in what was looking to be a fairly well established downtrend was a doji . Dojis are usually interpreted as ...

Looking at a buy on NEX at a break of todays high. Price looks oversold to me, we have a lot of congestion/resistance at this area but if we break it we could see the upside hit 400. Large engulfing bar on high volume. Entry: 363 Stop: 343 TP: 400 This is not a trade recommendation, this is purely my option on the market.

Not to sound contrarian but UKOG has options to play with and thats going to make the next moves a little tricky to predict. I still believe there will be a bigger pull back but it might adopt some rather unorthodox patterns to get back to 5 or around the 50% retracement level. Ultimatey i'm waiting for price to pull back and establish a value range of types ...

I stick with my original plan, while price is ticking along nicely a slight pull back to multiple levels of confluence will give it a good boost higher. Ultimately it's looking steady and good, some near term levels to contend with at 140 but once passed this level, lovely upside. Patience, time to see if the plan materialises and provides a high probility trade ...

The recent push up and test of the significant pivot at 0.50 was a welcome bit of positivity in what looks like a relentless downtrend. The longer this deterioration persists the more people leave and use their money elsewhere, so the recent push up on UK electric car commitments seemed to do the trick. However, 0.50 needs to be broken, my original plan to watch ...
