I'm trade with share.com but also trade with tdwaterhouse as well, the latter allowing t20.

My portfolio consists past/present GKP, RKH, AFR. Currently trading in AMER,MATD,PGD and TRP. These have been multibaggers for me but I also have some serious dusters!! These are MTA (down -70%) and VGM (-50%). I've tried averaging down buying on the cheap but seems that this hasn't really helped. Anyway wait and see....and REMEMBER, a loss is not a loss until you sell and DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH. Lots of rampers out there and beware of market movers (MM's)

Researching ZOL...this company is run by Ambramovich Jr and funded by his father!! Remember take heed and DYOR but you read it here.

From Motley Fool yesterday: 5 Cheap Shares To Avoid

2. Lloyds Banking Group (doh! bought some of these myself)

If RBS was easy to put on my barge-pole list, Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) is a much harder call. My colleague David Holding made a good case for the shares being worth twice their current value when they were just a few pence above today's 33p. I'm in full agreement they have a big upside, as a cheap (half book value) geared play on UK economic recovery.

But Lloyds has its own regulatory headaches in the form of the so far unsuccessful sell off of branches. The balance sheet is also stuffed full of bad property loans and exposure to Ireland. With balance sheets this complicated, only the directors know what a bank is worth.

Perversely, it was directors' purchases which made my mind up. There was a flurry of buying after the half-year results. Newly installed CEO Antonio Horta-Osorio doubled his shareholding with a 62,000 purchase.

Now if you're the new chief executive who has cleaned out the stables with big write-offs and given out bullish statements to shareholders, wouldn't you fill your boots? 62,000 is three weeks of Snr Horta-Osorio's basic salary. I'd happily invest in Lloyds if it was a one-way bet, but I'll keep clear until the CEO has more skin in the game.

3. Ocado

Down 35% over 30 days and at a discount of a third to their flotation price, I guess the sponsors Goldman Sachs ought to rate Ocado (LSE: OCDO) shares a bargain: though inconveniently its analysts have recently slashed their profit forecasts.

Management claimed that capacity constraints held back sales in the first year, and a second warehouse is anticipated, by Ocado bulls, to be a platform for the growth priced into the shares. But I remain unconvinced by the business model. Blasted off from a standing start by its exclusive deal to fulfil Waitrose online orders within the M25, the company now competes with Waitrose along and the other supermarket chains.

Ocado's success depends on its pure online service being superior. As the established bricks and mortar competitors develop their online offerings, I can't see them letting it win.

Shit day, glad avoided BARC but sub 160 is sorely tempting. I think some Euro bank has had to borrow 330 million Euros from the ECB and the markets smell doom and gloom.

It's a rather meaningless statement. It just means that the paper valuation of the FTSE100 companies has reduced by that amount based on the fall in the indices (share values). It is not real money or hard cash.

Can't believe how low RBS are now. Still would not touch them though.

I have shareprice and IG index on my iphone. I don't usually use them to deal but to monitor prices when out and about. Hargreaves Lansdown are about to launch a iPhone app for trading shortly as well.

I don't know anything about shares but my company screensaver displays share prices of many of the oil companies.

For a couple of years they steadily increased.

They all slumped a few weeks ago and now have stabilised. I'd guess they will go back up now as work is very strong.

Check out Baker Hughes, Halliburton and Schlumberger.
