  1. Anyone know why I still get the cookies popup banner EVERY time I log in even though I've accepted cookies?
  2. On that basis, I've just picked up some BT's shares at 204. Seems silly not to
  3. Surely the future is 5g? All this expense of laying cable is on the way out. I've just got rid of my landline phone/broadband as it's not needed anymore. 4g and a 9gb from Giffgaff for £20 a month suits me perfectly.
  4. Drax, since I bought in Feb has gone up 25%. Sold the lot yesterday and put it into IBTL. Hope I made the right choice. We'll see I guess.
  5. Ex div date looming. I bought these a couple of months back for 191. In fact my very first shares purchase! I topped up today aswell. At this price it's gone into my HL Shares ISA for the long term.
  6. Yes I've sacked the stop/loss thing aswell. But I'll still keep a close eye in these uncertain times. If it tanks then I'll add more (or panic and sell the rest instead of trying to be clever timing the markets. Good dividend payers are what's needed I think. Live and learn...every day! My strategy is, I have no strategy. Seat of my pants?
  7. Like this! Although I've set mine at 5% stop loss until the profit (hopefully) gets better. I'll adjust accordingly IF the SP goes higher. BUT I like the other bit too (capital protection as key). Preservation is what I really need to do in this current environment and setting my SL at 5% drop to trigger would still give me a 5% gain (changing daily on different shares) Sadly his latest article is behind the FT paywall. Can't see it
  8. Yep, seen those articles. Problem I have with old articles or books etc, is they base their strategy on fairly normal market conditions, going up going down sort of normal,hands off etc. BUT what could be coming is what I'm interested in and how to make the best of a terrible crash and to take advantage of it. There's some good stuff around which is new and current. Talk is a once in a lifetime crash. There's always opportunity in a crisis. And I/we should be better positioned than most hopefully.
  9. I understand DB. Well this thread has certainly woke me up and I'm reading as much as I can from all different sources. Trouble is most of those sources can't see 'it' yet. Or don't WANT to see 'it'. But please keep those thoughts coming along with everyone else! Great stuff.
  10. I wonder if DB would be interested in starting an Investment Club. 20-30 members or so chipping in a lump sum then a monthly amount? If so I'm in!
  11. All I did was take the current price of each stock this morning took 5 % off that price and set it as my stop/loss. As prices (hopefully) go higher, which they are today, then that gap widens and I'll relax a bit more and adjust to alow for a bigger percentage drop as I'll still take a profit. Like I said I'm new!!
  12. Thorn, I've just set mine at a drop of 5% on all my picks. GSK dropped a few days ago on bad earnings or something and that was just over 2%. Bounced back the next day. So this is something I want to avoid. Small dips and profit taking triggering a stop loss is what I want to avoid. So for me it's 5%. Hey I'm new remember, so probably wrong. Live and learn unless I get better advice etc.
  13. Yep I hear you. The £100k is now around £110k ish according to my HL app since Feb/March. Very lucky in that respect. But I will be putting in stop losses tomorrow and adjusting them up if the shares keep rising, being careful for people taking profits to not trigger a stop. So I'm trying to keep an eye, very closely. As I've said before, I'll be more than happy to pull out an back to cash.
