got in at 0.3742 for June contract on IG, so that is showing a decent return.
Got a heap at 0.6 for daughter's JISA so that is now in profit.

Potential for ig things on this one, will be watching closely.
Even joined a Telegraph group (removes some of the chaff that you see on LSE)

There are all sorts of numbers being attributed to this.
Some more news to come out.
Legal 'stuff' sorted
New Investors due to be announced as a partner for the inventory fund
Quadrillia (sp) is a funding partner and strategy partner - the CEO makes a big deal about them.
Aim to scale up, proof of platform = huge potential.

But ultimately there are some holes so there is a risk that it will just wither away.

2021 - ready to fly.....
I want to be convinced but something holding me back, was waiting to see if partners were going to be HSBC or Morgan Stanley etc
But StormHarbour Securities LLP and Quadrillia - hmmm
And wanting to launch in ME - my NMC alarm has just gone off.
and the huge LSE froth

is holding me back, may kick myself but..

I’m averaging 0.49p with 3.3m shares. Will buy more shortly, though there is a strong hint of tulip bulbs about it.

I also joined the telegraph group. It’s removed all the deramping chaff and left all the ramping chaff. 99% of posts add nothing. Why oh why can’t there be a group that only shares facts, analysis, rumours, news etc.

I try to stick to a 10k minimum investment size, so I can keep track rather than loads of smaller sizes, plus its annoying if something does really well and its only 1% of portfolio

Was in UFO but badly timed and was down 30% when I gave up, it’s even lower now but it’s still on my watch list as has some interesting prospects

What’s your view?
I have some Alien UFO, also have some BZT sold most of my KEFI recently and that's typically now had quite a rise.

Anyway I have a current precious metals bias overall, I think Alien used to be called Arian silver and had a huge (speculative) blip in 2010. Not sure any of the prospects of that time were ever mined and it plummeted and has languished for years since. It's a total punt, but if silver gets even a tiny bit 'bitcoin' and people want into silver this could benefit in name alone. Silver price rises can also make some of their genuine prospects in genuine historically good silver producing areas viable.

The silver story from what I've read being that lot's of current silver production is a by product of other mining, not so many specific producers/mines and the rise in EV will increase silver demand and so it may be harder to up production to match. Silver is generally not recycled so constant mining/new stuff is required. Some consider it a investment metal, a poor mans gold and hold physical (considered a bit 'prepper' by most I think but a small change in attitude, loss of confidence in the dollar could impact supply) Historically silver to gold ratio was 12/15:1 when it's been in approximately the 50-80 range for a decade.

I moved away from my cash isa's and to here purely as I thought gold/silver over time would be better than money sitting in the bank. Just looking for a inflation matching hedge/form of money. From that I've learnt a lot from this thread and made some money on the back of the tips on regular companies and obviously the unprecedented circumstances (arguably not been an easier time recently to make a few quid?).

TUI Rights Issue.

You can buy 25 new shares at 96p for every 29 shares you own.

I currently don't own, which having read the RNS leads me to consider although they do say "We don't have the cash to repay this right now, so it could all go very wrong".....

If you bought today at £4.88 and agreed to buy in the RI you'd end up with an average of £3.11 (29 @ 4.88 + 25 @ 0.96)

Anyone in, or going in to benefit? Does anyone know the cut off deadline to be in to be able to participate in the RI?
'm not sure £3.11 would be a good place to be.

I’m staying out. I got bitten by IAG RI. My average is 160 now and I don’t feel it will get much above 180 at present.

I went heavy on airlines when they first dropped but apart from IAG shares I have I’m staying out of airlines.

This year will be horrible bar maybe Jet2 based on the fact they pretty much own everything they have, that SP has already had its run.

To add unless you plan on holding for couple of years.

How's everyone's day going ? FTSE at +2.78% there must be a number of healthy p/fs today.

(I'm currently showing +4% for the day spread across multiple segments and shares)

3.5% up from yesterday at the moment.
I now have a fancy spreadsheet that I can hit a button and it updates and shows me the change.
(have regular account with HL, ISA and I'm counting the kids JISA as well) and then there is the carp 212 where I have some Granite BP shares....

SYME, TILS and BP biggest hitters
SSE in the 'safe' pot for absolute gain.

Bit of help please chaps, in my HL account is there was of seeing a balance after each purchase / sale was made? Still looking into my missing money from a SKIN purchase in August. Thanks.
on the website you can download all transactions - not sure if there is a running total, but you can work it out.
Will do, thank you.

For once I am not holding FTSE so missed out on it. Not sure how it's sitting at 6800.

I've been loading up on Nasdaq overnight and over the last day or so - hasn't been going so well!

BP is doing well though and glad to see Tesco slowly creeping up (one of my bigger holdings).

TUI I'd want to be significantly closer to 96 than 311

IAG has, as you know, been a roller coaster. I've just sat since my original purchase and added the RI. If I'd traded them the returns could have been handsome. Right now I'm about 15% up and holding for the long run.

AML, each RI took the share price down close to the issue price. That was a learning curve. More active on the buying of this one as it dropped, including a chunk at 30p (pre consolidation), took the RIs, where available to PIs. Currently around 100%. Again, would have been far better off trading it.
