(The problem with buying shares using a broker platform is you cannot profit on the way down, but with Spreadbetting trading platforms you can! - plus all profit is TAX-FREE! )

    if the box technique is not how you trade, how do you trade then?

    Where have I said it's not how I trade? I just said it's a technique that I have not devised personally, it's a technique used by FX traders, and I use it in conjunction with other techniques.

    There are many more techniques but explaining them would mean deviating from the OP on buying shares. Personally though I would stay away from the classical 'Pump and Dump' technique on Shares. ;)

    USOP sounds too good to be true and too illiquid to get in or exit so leaving it well alone. If it proves concept might buy.
    Thanks pia. It does seem too good to be true... An Oil refinery is only 40 miles away!!

    They are meant to be listing on AIM soon so maybe worth a little punt then.

    Let me know what detailed info you are after as I could talk about Gold and Silver till I'm blue!
    Thanks NH. I am still confused on the actual process of how you hedge the bullion when you place your forex trades. Do you buy certain amount of bullion equal to the amount of trade your willing to risk beforehand and then place your trades? Isn't that then a long and arduous process?

    No way... at home? Your a brave man! I would have thought safety deposit box at Harrods or your local bank atleast

    Hmmmm.

    So let me get this straight.

    If I store my Bullion at a bank, I'm not a conspiracy theorist.
    If I store my Bullion at home, I'm a conspiracy theorist.

    If I mention the US debt ceiling will expire on 16th May, I'm a conspiracy theorist.
    If I mention the US debt ceiling is fine, then I'm not a conspiracy theorist.

    If you buy shares in Gold mining companies, you're not a conspiracy theorist.
    If I buy actual Gold Bullion, I'm a conspiracy theorist.

    There's only one conspiracy, scam, and fraud when it comes to shares, and that's AIM - which I will expose to the hilt by the end of tonight by directing the likes of DV and EE to information they should be checking before acting on scam AIM tips, no not news articles from Google or the corresponding company website, I'm talking about mechanics of the markets, because after reading the spiel on share tips in this thread, I have come to the conclusion that you sir are taking them for a ride .

    In the meantime, take a look at the following, it's a liquidity vs. risk pryamid, yes it's upside down (a conspiracy?).



    PS: I pay Zakat on my Bullion, is that a conspiracy too? [Rhetorical question, meaning there's no need to answer it]

    You need to know what to look for to realise that it's happening.

    I’m not here to mock others, believe me. I’m here to offer knowledge. techniques, platforms, and methods by which one can exploit loopholes of the system, in contrast to ‘punts’ and ‘tips’. However, when other PPers insult my intelligence by attacking what they do not understand then it’s pretty obvious that their knowledge and familiarity of the ‘system’ is close to minimal. These PPers attack FX and Bullion when everyman and his dog will tell you the best of the best who have retired from trading have either done so via FX or Commodities – not shares! There is a reason for this! But no, the AIM cartel have never had a whiff of FX, have never held Gold Buillion in their hand, yet denounce such markets on the hind of ignorance.

    Have you wondered why every share tip recommended in this thread has been an AIM recommended stock? Think hard.

    You must understand the mechanics of the system before you invest in anything, be it shares, bonds, commodities, etc. For example, when you are offered a share ‘tip’, you should check the number of shares issued, the number of shares sold and bought – this provides an insight into liquidity. You then need to understand how the flow of such liquidity causes the price to move up or down.

    The likes of PIA786, whom have studied ‘economics’ at university are dime a dozen – they study a syllabus, nothing more. Ask him to explain how markets and economies are affected by the Keynesian model of economics and how it differs from a Ludwig von Mises model. Ask him to explain the difference between Currency and Money. Ask him why inflation will consume your profits and how one can preserve their purchasing power. Ask him to explain the difference between price and value. Ask him why every paper currency has seen its day except for the $ and £.

    It’s only when you understand the creation, flow, and supply of money (in conjunction with human emotions of fear and greed) will you then understand how markets and economies actually work to the extent you can profit effortlessly.

    The US debt ceiling expiring on May 16th doesn’t seem to bother the likes of PIA786 because his interests, and dare I say knowledge, do not extend beyond the gambling casino scam that is AIM - hence why everything I post is perceived as a conspiracy!

    You asked for advice on shares in the OP and all you are getting in return are ‘punts’ and ‘tips’ – does this seem sound to you? If it does then mate, I’m better off saving my breath and you are better off signing up to weekly newsletters, papers, articles, websites, even TV new channels which spend day and night trying to lure in suckers with their cash - www.fool.co.uk (Irony overload?).

    Do yourself a favour, next time an AIM tip comes along your way on PP, do a search on Google News/Forums - don't be suprised by how many other 'global' traders recommend the same share during the same period of time.

    Good luck!

    I do not trust anyone to safeguard my Bullion. If I want it to sell it, it's there for me at home. If I want to use it as hard currency, it's there for me at home. No need for me to wait for the bank/store to open.

    Solo oil brought out some good news. It was on my watchlist for months but then the thought of investing in a Lennigas company put me off. Anyone else monitoring it in light of the news or not touching it with a bargepole?

    Lenigas is a fat uncouth aussie. I'd compare him to zardari. Wouldn't want to be involved at all. I'm very dubious anyway about Lenigas but you should be generally about small explorers claiming to have big finds in the US. It is hardly virgin terrority where oil exploration hasn't been going on for years. Why has some salesman had to come to lightly regulated AIM market to fund his American venture when there are corporates, funds, investors, markets they can 'tap' over there ?

    Same goes for HAWK, USOP, PANR, CAZA, PPC etc

    VAL - more news that I don't understand

    some sort of collaboration with minor league Universities like Imperial and Oxford

    http://fool.uk-wire.com/Article.aspx...4140700098790E

    I get the impression (it may be totally wrong as impressions are wont to be) that they do have a lot going on in the background and some of the recent RNSes are put out to start creating buzz amongst PIs

    They have a lot more cash to get a lot more active at least on PR front so I suspect further down the line this will exhibit more spikiness as its cohort (PYC,SAR et al) have done as well.

    I'm a seller of spikes. Some people seem to like buying them for some reason.

    Top Creation Investments Limited

    ("TCIL" or the "Company")

    Statement re Share Price Movement

    TCIL notes the significant rise in its share price today, which comes on top of the increase since admission on 31 March 2011. The Company knows of no reason for this unexpected and significant increase.

    TCIL is an investment company focused on investments in the real estate sector in the Far East, with a primary focus on Malaysia. In particular, the Company will focus on the commercial and resorts property sectors in Malaysia. The Company intends to seek to collaborate with Malaysia's Ministry of Tourism in promoting the "Malaysia My Second Home Programme (MM2H)", by seeking to promote and sell the properties the Company develops to foreigners seeking to participate in the MM2H programme. The Company has approximately GBP3m of net cash on its balance sheet.

    The Investment Manager has commenced the process of evaluating possible opportunities which will be presented to the Board as and when appropriate.

    The Board consider that the current spike in the share price is exacerbated by the low levels of liquidity in the market and has agreed to issue a further 500,000 shares at 2p per share to the market makers to improve liquidity.

    You invested in TCIL pia?

    XEL CPR is imminent. The oil is there, the flow rates are good, its just a question of how the present market conditions affect the announcement.

    Im considering putting my whole 2011/2 ISA into XEL for the next two weeks, and then sell on the news.

    get URU on your watch lists...

    I don't expect anything imminent but had communication with the IR of that company and he comes across as very smart and they are a company on the move but underappreciated by Investors ( i have small insignificant position but intend to grow large as story develops)

    in short it is a £10m company with £5m net cash

    Key Projects :-
    Niger - Uranium exploration (existing 4m lb deposit) results of new exploration due May i think
    South Africa - Nickel exploration (they claim they may have 'world class properties' doubt it but if they do they become comparable to AFE and HZM and intend to list this venture (SAN-URU) separately

    Also have 20% of UrAmerica which may seek IPO at some point.

    Also intend a duel listing of company (URU) on TSX.

    There is an 'Investor Presentation' on the site dated April 2011 which states the following :-

    Moving Forward
    Results from the latest drilling and exploration programme
    undertaken at In Gall and Irhazer (Niger) will be announced in
    Q2/Q3 2011.
    Subject to favourable market and corporate finance conditions,
    UrAmerica will work towards a potential listing on the Toronto
    Venture Exchange (TSX.V) of the Toronto Stock Exchange in
    Q3. Given favourable technical results, supported by positive
    market conditions, the URU/San nickel joint venture could be
    listed by Q4, or early in 2012.


    http://www.niger-uranium.com/dmdocum...ownload&gid=31


    The company was previously known as Niger Uranium and was valued as highly as £40m+ I think on basis of previous managements track record but now there is new managment and as yet i am dubious as to how good they are. However 4m lb of uranium they have proved up is potentially worth $24m at going rates so as a £10m company they look to be valued at a discount to their assets.

    It has lots of newsflow and listing S&V to come so I expect it to get some promotion at some point.

However, when other PPers insult my intelligence by attacking what they do not understand then it’s pretty obvious that their knowledge and familiarity of the ‘system’ is close to minimal. These PPers attack FX and Bullion when everyman and his dog will tell you the best of the best who have retired from trading have either done so via FX or Commodities – not shares! There is a reason for this! But no, the AIM cartel have never had a whiff of FX, have never held Gold Buillion in their hand, yet denounce such markets on the hind of ignorance.

    Have you wondered why every share tip recommended in this thread has been an AIM recommended stock? Think hard......
    i agree with nearly all of the points you make bro, but i disagree with the importance of the instrument or methodology one chooses. i think it is possible to make good returns from various method, stocks, fx, comms, fundamental analysis, technical analysis, even t-bonds and interest rate speculation if you are willing to put in the hard yards to study what you are getting into.

    you can find very good money makers irrespective of the "system used" from traders like tudor-jones, seykota, schwartz, etc to money managers like klarman, buffet, etc who trade different instruments/securities but learn their art/science inside out.

    im not attacking forex/comms, on the contrary its something i would love to learn about to widen my own knowledge. my point is if u work hard and are knowledgable about what you deal with that is more important than the securities/instruments you choose to trade with/invest in.

    Been doing some digging on Sheba Exploration..

    Sheba Exploration (PLUS:SHE) a totally undiscovered microcap gold explorer in Ethiopia recently had an RNS stating they had discovered an 'Extensive Gold Trend' of total length 10km !

    The sampling revealed soil anomalies including peak values 500-5000 ppb (parts per billion)

    It is worth putting this in context with the RNSes from much bigger AIM listed gold explorers... (Sheba is valued at £3.8m whilst many of the companies listed below are multiples of the size)

    URU

    I said initially that I did not expect anything 'imminent'.

    Actually they have promised fundamental news to the market re drilling campaigns in May and July.

    However technical 'updates' may come sooner than that.

    I understand the new website and Investor Presentation go 'live' in the near future and yesterdays Director Buying illustrates the confidence.

    They are certainly planning a LOT of listing related activity so expect them to become more promotional as year progresses and the stated listings take place.

    For those of a Canadian bent NWT Corp (TSX:NWT) ? Used to and may still own a significant chunk of URU.

    So let's put this to the test...

    Google open...

    Type 'URU Metals' into Search box...

    tuddum tuddum tuddum...

    Results :-

    OK so in the first page of results three bulletin boards come up

    iii - http://www.iii.co.uk/investment/deta...scussion&it=le
    sharecrazy - http://www.sharecrazy.com/ubbthreads...75&Main=477175
    lse - http://www.lse.co.uk/SharePrice.asp?shareprice=URU

    i counted a grand total of about 20 posts on those 3 forums talking about URU over the last month which works out at less than one post per day

    despite three RNS announcements so far in April there has been no identifiable uptick in forum 'chatter' about URU

    so not sure what point the resident nutjob was trying to make but i'm guessing despite being proved wrong he will still claim to be right

    Clearly you do not know where to search and what to search for.

    Allow me:

    URU


    Volume is low.




    Value of trades.



    Since URU was recommended the value of trades has increased - suprise suprise.

    Recent trades on URU:

    Time/Date Price Volume Trade Value Type

    10-14-35 15-Apr-2011 10.00 25,000 2,500.00 Ordinary trade
    09-41-07 15-Apr-2011 9.57 1,307 125.08 Ordinary trade

    Ordinary Trade - delayed publication request

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    In brief - an AIM SCAM.

    BTW PIA786, I rather be a nutjob than ignorant.

    PS: You should ask the univeristy where you obtained your economic degree for a refund. (Use the money to buy Gold and Silver).

    LOL

    a large majority of those trades you point to were a Director buying shares in his own company

    "Paul Loudon, Non-executive Chairman of the Company, had made two separate purchases, on 13 April and 14 April, of 250,000 and 50,000 Ordinary Shares of the Company at a price of 8.68 and 9.00 pence per Ordinary Share respectively."

    http://fool.uk-wire.com/Article.aspx...4141252189303E

    do you think he fell for a Bulletin Board pump and dump ?

    or do you think that he has bought shares because he expects that over the next 12 months the company will produce results which will cause the share price to go up ?

    i shan't waste my breath on someone who is so paranoid he thinks 20 posts in 30 days across 3 internet bulletin boards is some sort of concerted campaign to scam private investors

    First of all I can see you do not understand how volume/liquidity affects a share price.

    Secondly, the director is not falling for the crap on the forum, the forum users are falling for the director's crap!

    Why are you falling for the crap on www.fool.co.uk? These guys want you to buy these shares. The director (of the respective company) bought the shares because he's trying to convince buyers that if the shares are good enough for him they are good enough for the fools who are conned into buying the respective share.

    Then they'll pump the price with PR stunts, assumed technicals etc. - THEN the director will dump his shares and resign. Classic pump and dump technique.

    Notice how the guys on the respective forums are bigging up the share without knowing a thing.

    I double dog dare you to recommend a share on FTSE 100 / DJIA 100 / S&P 500 / DAX

    Last post on this thread from me. The thread seems to have outlived its usefulness for me, and I dont like the direction it is going.

    Good luck all in whatever investment you wish to pursue. And remember that research is KING, and there is no such thing as an easy buck.

    Jaspa and PIA - Thanks for your help mates and I hope you continue to post.


    NH - not sure why you want to post on this thread when you made clear your views on anything other than Gold and Silver. Everyone is a grown up and they can make their own minds up about the information that is provided or discussed.

    I was responding to PIA786's response to me.

    I apologise for scaring off AIM share advisers with their punts and tips, but if there was nothing sinister with AIM then my advice can be swiftly ignored.

    Penny shares are easily manipulated; low buy volume will cause the price to jump as there’s very little liquidity. This is why the more people who are suckered into investing on AIM, the better.

    When you buy a share you need to look for volume in the 100s of millions, both buy and sell. This denotes genuine interest in the share based on concrete research and data as opposed to HYPE. You want to invest in shares, buy/sell shares on major indicies.

    Everyone might be a grown up, but not everyone understands the mechnics of trading.

    I'm simply forwarning you guys, including PIA786, who are falling for the crap posted on AIM forums. You guys will spend day and night researching AIM shares, worried whether data is a PR stunt or not - in a word - a gamble. You are better off trading on FTSE 100 shares as opposed to going to the horse track with punts and tips.

    I'm done with this thread too - it's your cash, you can do as you wish. Oh, BTW, if you want Tips on AIM, forget Jaspa and PIA, forget websites, forget forum users, forget news letters - just do one thing - sign up to NEWZBINS. Straight from the horse's mouth - pun fully intended.

    Laters!

    I hope you carry on posting, mate. I always look out especially for your posts on this thread. There have been some excellent recommendations by you and the boys - it has been educational for newbies such as myself.

    In my view this thread should be a sticky and is one of the best threads on PP.

    No need for the unpleasantness, peeps. Let's get back to where we were before......

    namak halal has some valid views, as an investor you should always welcome a contrarian viewpoint, it helps to reassess and balance ones ideas.

    i dont agree with everything he says, but saying he chats crap, simply because he disagrees some people, is not justified.

    someone on another BB has posted a very good summary of Jim Mellons keynote address at Master Investor

    He mentioned 4 'stock tips' of companies he is working with including (AIM:CNR) Condor Resources and (TSX:BGC) Brazil Gold Corp.

    Here is the full post :-

    Note : This is a summary of Jim Mellon's talk, and reflects my interpretation of my notes, and should no way be interpreted as a recommendation to buy or sell any shares or other instruments. Where possible, I have inserted website links, for ease of reference. As always, DYOR.

    Introduction :

    • BioTech is THE real emerging market
    • It is a possibility that the US will lose its status as the reserve currency – if so, interest rates will have to rise in the US
    • Short the Euro
    • He is ambivalent about gold
    • Short Japanese Government bonds

    Non-Biotech share recommendations (some already posted):

    • Emerging Metals (EML)
    http://www.emergingmetals.com/

    • Condor Resources (CNR)
    http://www.condorresourcesplc.com/

    • Regent Pacific Group (HK 575)
    http://www.regentpac.com/template?series=1&article=1

    Brazilian Gold (TSX BGC)
    http://www.braziliangold.ca/home.html

    • HTC (TPE 2498)
    http://www.htc.com/www/about_htc.aspx

    • SHORT Apple

    BIOTECH:
    JM clearly knows a lot about this sector and went into great detail about the different diseases we are faced with and the possibility of making a lot of money (beyond your wildest dreams) through investing in companies which provide cures for the most common, such as different types of cancer, Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular diseases and diseases related to obesity, such as diabetes. Within the next 20 years, we will be looking at a life expectancy of 120-130 years. Therefore, medical care costs must increase to take account of this ageing population. This will be a huge burden on society, therefore, it is imperative to find cheap, effective cures/treatments for these remedies.

    His caveat was that 9 out of 10 drugs fail in the approval process, and companies need huge amounts of capital (+/- $1 billion) and a lot of time (average 14.2 years) to put a single drug through the approval phases. However, Big Pharma now have a lot of cash to invest, as many of them have closed their research facilities and laid off a lot of staff. This is because the creation of synthetic drugs is now old-hat, and natural biotechnology is taking over. Furthermore, a lot of drugs are soon to come off patent, which will cause pain for a lot of the companies as they will no longer be able to produce and market them exclusively. So, the Big Pharma companies are likely to be looking to take over small, innovative companies with expertise in research into biotech companies who promise answers to these medical problems. They will be able to fund clinical trials and generate ‘milestone payments’ (as each of the phases is completed) for these smaller companies.

    There have been huge advances recently, such as :

    • Nanotechnology : within the next 2-3 years, it will be possible to target cancer cells accurately and not destroy the surrounding tissue
    • Combination therapy – using more than one treatment, personalised to the patient, rather than a broad-brush approach
    • Stem cells which are not obtained from foetal cells, which can re-grow the organs of the body (see Complete Genomics below)
    • Robotic surgery is already here

    Companies recommended by JM include :

    • Medivation (NASDAQ:MDVN)
    http://www.medivation.com/
    This company is conducting Phase 3 trials in conjunction with Pfizer, of a drug for Alzheimer’s and Huntingdon sufferers. Also Phase 2 and 3 trials of MDV 3100 for patients with prostate cancer. Results should be known in June/July.
    (For those who would like more information about clinical trials, here is a good place to start your research : http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ .)
    • Novartis (NYSE:NVS)
    http://www.novartis.com/index.shtml
    Manufacture a drug called Gleevec for chronic myeloid leukaemia
    • Pharmasset (NASDAQ:VIRUS)
    http://www.pharmasset.com/about/default.aspx
    A clinical-stage pharmaceutical company committed to discovering, developing and commercializing novel drugs to treat viral infections. Primary focus is on the development of oral therapeutics for the treatment of hepatitis C virus.
    • Complete Genomics (NASDAQ:GNOM)
    http://www.completegenomics.com/
    • Cellular Dynamics
    http://www.cellulardynamics.com/index.html
    Currently a private company – leading producer of stem cells. Will go public soon.
    • Genentec – taken over by Roche in March 2009
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/7938938.stm
    • Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN)
    http://wwwext.amgen.com/
    • Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:GS)
    http://www.celgene.com/
    • Human Genome Sciences (NASDAQ:HGSI)
    http://www.hgsi.com/
    • Ablynx (NYSE Euronext Bruxelles)
    http://www.ablynx.com/
    • Vivus (NASDAQ:VVUS)
    http://www.vivus.com/
    • Nektar Therapeutics (NASDAQ:NKTR)
    http://www.nektar.com/nektar/overview.html
    • Reata Pharmaceutical
    http://www.reatapharma.com/index.asp
    Currently a private company, but may go public.
    • Gilead Sciences Inc. (NASDAQ:GILD)
    http://www.gilead.com/
    • Alectos/Merck partnership
    http://www.merck.com/licensing/our-p...rtnership.html

    Note : There was another company which looks like Memmaek in my notes, which is currently conducting Phase 3 trials (not sure which drug/disease), which is not yet public. However, this does not Google, so I can’t identify it. If anyone else attending can, please post, as I have a big asterisk by it! Another recommendation was Arrowhead, who are developing an injectable drug, but likewise, I cannot find this on Google.

    JM ended by saying how the demographics of the world is already starting to change dramatically – the birth rate is now decreasing in countries such as Japan, Spain and Italy - which will have huge impacts on all economic indicators, as the populations age. Therefore, we need to identify and market these new biotech solutions to ageing diseases, otherwise we simply will not be able to afford to look after the older generation.

    Lots of food for thought, and hours and hours of research ahead! Apologies for any omissions. Good luck to all – not just in making our fortune so we can afford a good lifestyle in our old age, but also so we can make a difference in the world by helping others along the way. Time to enjoy the sun :-)

    He has specifically moved to California to be amongst the Biotech community so he mainly talked up the companies he has met out there but I think many of the private investors who heard his spiel will prefer to invest closer to home so the likes of VAL, PYC, SUMM, SAR, RENE, MEDU might get a bit more attention if they continue to pump out news

    SUMM are holding their AGM in a few weeks time in Oxford I think so I am hoping to attend and try to improve my knowledge and also to see the 'whites of their eyes'.

    I used to work in the City for an Investment Management company and CEO's/FD's of companies would come to see us.

    Since being sacked I just invest my own money (full-time) and to gather information I try to get to as many Conferences (e.g. Minesite, Oilbarrel, Proactive) and AGMs as I can.

    AGMs can be pretty tedious affairs so such visits tend to be infrequent and only if there is some dual purpose that can be served i.e. in this case I'll be able to take the wife to Bicester Shopping Village and attend the AGM myself :-D

    I live in the hope that at one AGM/Conference a CEO/FD/Chairman/Non-Exec may have a brain-**** and let slip some insider information. No such luck so far but it does help to gain some idea of their level of conviction in the story they are peddling to be able to see the whites of their eyes.

    You ain't missing too much except the chance to earn obscene amounts of money

    I am much happier now without having daily hell of commute, tube, management, compliance, clients, waking up in the morning etc etc

    I now just do what I really enjoy researching, analysing companies and investing in stocks

    for someone straight out of uni, who doesnt have much financially that is a huge attraction. i dont even want obscene amounts of money, a decent living doing something i enjoy would be good enough.

    regardless of how my life turns out professionally i know i will pbly keep investing till the day i die, once u get the bug it dont go away.

    its good to see you are happier now, but it depends on what stage of life you are at i guess. clearly you have done well for yourself, and can therefore afford to do things your own way.

    Sure you can't beat it as an education where you get paid for doing something you enjoy and play around with other peoples money

    Don't give up. Know of many who got in via non conventional routes. At my last shop a guy with a degree in astrophysics got a job because he was tutoring a directors son for gcse maths. And one of the top directors at a major fund I worked at got to the top after working her way up from the library.

    You get some people who are eager to become experts at what they do. But very few who actually strive to be the very best. pia786is one of those few people and seldom do I post here but have been reading his posts and am grateful to the guy he actually has helped me quite a lot in understanding things I didn't know with his posts. and has without knowing allowed me to escape the sheep mentality. Taking people for a ride?! I disagree its more like if someone is successful at what they do why not follow their lead. I won't post on here much but will continue to read and take notes.

    thanks bro ill keep that in mind.

    going back to the topic, how do u decide when to sell your securities if they are doing badly. i find it really hard to decided when to sell something which is not doing well.

    i am in such a dilemma at the moment, having purchased some shares a year back doing no research what so ever on them, i was really mentally exhausted and very stressed in those days so i wasnt thinking straight.

    at one point i lost nearly 50%, at the moment i am about 18% down.

    will never ever make such a mistake again. guess jesse livermore was right, experience is the greatest teacher, unfortunately we cannot decide how much she charges for her lessons.

    If it is any consolation that is indeed true and experience is a brilliant teacher.

    Jesse Livermore book is excellent insight into psychology of trading that is why i suggested that Guy Thomas book might be interesting for some. No one way is right. Those guys have at times mutually exclusive methodologies but they still succeed because they have found a mentality and method which suits their particular psyche.

    It is important to understand why you made mistakes (which you seem to have done) so you don't repeat them. I had some horrendous 90% losers when I started out and still have occasional losers but tend to take my losses earlier now and have more 'discipline'.

    e.g. I won't be stubborn or arrogant about my intellectual rationalising of a position now, i respect the technicals, if a stock is 'acting bad' i'll cut my position

    When i started out i believed the b.s. about only using Fundamental Analysis but many of the top hedge fund managers and traders I have worked with use technical analysis to at very least time trades exit/entry or provide early warnign signal something may be wrong with fundamentals.

    Also some of my horrendous losses a few years later I have been very grateful for because I've been able to use them to write of Capital Gains in current year. So it's nice that the taxman shares those losses.

    ElRaja - You might want to let us know which companies you bought incase someone else has bit more information that can aid you in your decision.

    Everyone at some point will make bad decisions... but crucially you need to learn from these mistakes. Do not commit money that you cannot afford to lose/tied up with a share. What I have learnt from mistakes is that I never thought of paying much attention to what to do in a losing position with respect to at what point to call it quits on that share. As AIM is not strongly regulated, make sure you look into the history of the people you are entrusting to make you money... the BOD. As at times, the product can be excellent but the incompetence of the BOD can wipe out that upside.

    What did you do in Uni? I'm in my final year and applied to a couple of them places aswell but straight rejections ... might do another degree for a year in economics or finance and then give it another go next year.
