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.

SAFE, D Long
$SAFE - Safestore Buy

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

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 ...

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 ...

Momentum on the Gann indicator looks like it may find support

The 2x1 line looks too far away to test so we may find support earlier. Moves in copper and iron ore also support this, recent price action and volume looks good also.

Similar industries and a mild Rodrigue pattern is emerging as it did with SPD. Different timescales of course

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 ...

Direct Line could be forming a large top

Direct Line Group continues to trade within a medium term downtrend. In the last couple of sessions we have seen a rejection at the medium term trend resistance line and also the top of a range that has developed over the past few months. This rejection is likely to trigger a move to the lower end of the channel at 332p. 332p is a huge support level that has ...

KEFI, D Long

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.

ARS, D Long
Asiamet Resources - Consolidation Phase Breakout Expected Soon.

2nd phase of consolidation, expecting breakout to be triggered by heavy news flow from further drilling data and feasibility study related data (FS expected early 2018). Soon to enter development phase and popular copper related stock. Stock tightly held and moves quickly on light volume.

XLM - XL Media - Buy

XLM is a buy for me. Price has rejected strongly from the 126-128 level on strong volume. This coincides with with oversold technicals and a bounce from the 50ma. SL & 120 TP 160

SDX - SDX Energy - Buy

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 ...

LMI, D Long
Long on Lonmin Interesting correlation between strength of US dollar index and Lonmin share movement. It appears the strength of dollar gives more support to Lonmin than just price platinum futures. As rates are set to increase in US it would be interesting to see whether Lonmin will follow strength of dollar. I've gone for the punt here

Falanx is bearish for all sorts of reasons

Today FLX closed below 5.39 resistance at 5.26 The 50 period daily EMA has also crossed below the 200 EMA Since May 2017, the daily MACD and RSI have both been down-trending Finally, the cup and handle pattern it formed since Jan 2016 looked to be bullish. Unfortunately it failed in May this year.

#SDX tripple bottom set up

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.

HSBC - A Need for Speed

Currently HSBC is facing a long standing resistance level at 766, this is acted as pivot back in 2008 and 2009 and as resistance in 2013. Price action is faced with a conundrum, try and break from where it is, already relatively overextended and less oppurtunistic for new entries OR correct (retrace) over the next couple of days or weeks to get some momentum from ...

Seriously Sirius - We Still Need Oil

Sirius petroleum has recently responded well resulting in steady price movement, okay patterns which are realitivey intuative and moving averages which are positively alligned. A combination of new highs, followed by a noticeable near term ceiling at 1.30 and a good trend line supported by high lows (even if they are not pretty). This presents a crunch which may ...
