    Hey, does the site use the real world market? Or is it 100% simulation?

    I don't have much time - last set of uni exams starting on tuesday but... Check out Cove Energy. Shell made a bid of 195p which was outbid by PTT shortly after at 220p. Shell have come back in for it and matched PTT 220p bid.

    The share price currently sits at 226p - in anticipation for another bid by PTT.

    The risk/reward ratio here is great.

    If PTT come back in, i would expect a bid of at least 240p. And if PTT want it - which they obviously do if they bid, then they will know they will probably need to bid higher than Shell.

    If they rule themselves out then Cove get sold for 220p and you will lose about 3% and if there is another bid then expect a 10% upswing plus the further potential of Shell bidding again (probably less likely though).

    A £10,000 leveraged position here will cost you £1000, if no bid comes you will lose around £300 and if a bid is made you make £1000 profit (essentially doubling your money).

    I would say there is a 70% chance of another bid by PTT.

Looking to add, SIG, BRBY, MUL, NXT. to be honest lovely time to be buying shares atm, just sucks holding in this time, Have to look at 5+ years though myself

    I have a quick question, just reading up on the London Stock exchange about "Cluff Natural Resources" going public, here is a document I found that was published about it:

    [​IMG]

    If John Algy owns 100% on the shares before admission, and then his 100% suddenly changes to 11.5% but he still keeps 10,000,000 shares then where are the other shares coming from? How is the amount of shares per company decided? Or is it the same for every company.

    Thanks very much for the help in advance

    Well just decided to revisit this post from 6 weeks ago. Well PTT did come back in and at 240p like i predicted. The shares how trade at 264p a share with the anticipation of Shell making a further bid.

    The £1000 leveraged position when i pointed this out would have made you nearly £1700 profit :).

    Would anyone be interested in a more advance introduction to the stock market? Additional topics may include reading Level 2 data and spread betting, the pros, the cons and how to use it.

    Honestly it makes my brain hurt and I thought I was pretty intelligent! If you could do an advanced introduction and still make it comprehensible to those who don't know that'd be epic :)

    Down at the moment, it may make a come back later in the new year but no plans at the moment.

    I will see what i can come up with on the stockmarket guide when i have some time. I think screen shots would probably be useful.
