BARC having a crap day. I want to stay clear of banks for a while, too volatile at the moment with all this Eurozone debt stuff going on, but they do look tempting prices......

There has to be some really really good value stocks out there at the moment, it is just picking them. Commodities maybe? I have some BP and have made some modest gains since last week. Retailers? Not sure. People keep saying Range Resources RRL but am not generally good with AIM stock and it is a bit of a gamble.

This thread has convinced me to register on iii and do a tiny tiny range trade on a stock and see how it goes.

Could get addictive?

I have been doing a modest 'dabble' over the last week or so. Am up, thankfully, by enough to pay off the wife's shopping spree at the Trafford Centre yesterday! Sold MUL and BP just after lunch. Am a little nervous about putting all my spare cash in the market as it could turn down very quickly.

Can you guys hedge trade with whoever you use?

Eg Buy Barclays and sell some French bank?

Directional trading is always tough at times like this

I used to trade EGB for Bar Cap and everything was hedged with futures or done as a butterfly. Nothing was directional. I'd be making a fortune at the moment with the volatility in the markets.

FWIW I don't share trade myself. So can't and wouldn't offer any advice. I don't have the time to invest in making sure my money was well invested. i.e checking out the sector, historics, background news, fundamentals, commodity prices etc.

I deal with a minimum of 3K-4K. It is 0.5% Stamp duty + broker fee of 11.95 for buying and selling. I deal with Hargreave Lansdown. So on a 4K trade the share price needs to go up by 1.1% to make a profit.

You need to be playing with +1k for it to be financially viable after fees

My hot tip, ocado, they have been stung when waitrose sold, but will pull back.

335ilondon, you could be right, ocado possibly nearing the bottom of the bucket before the upturn, based on historical data?

Difficult to base on data as their business model has changed after waitrose sold their shares.

I believe they are a good company and will pick up. Have just doubled my investment as at 119 I think they will be 130 by end of month

Dull dull day. Hopefully on the up tomorrow. Wonder if Merkel/Sarkhozy have made a joint statement yet to cheer the markets!
