One of the appeals – and drawbacks – to technical analysis for some are the many, many ways of analysing historical data on a chart. Before home computers and sophisticated investing software, many charts were either in paper format or on dedicated terminals, primarily used by City institutions. Now of course, you are only ever…

How to use stop-losses to maximise profits

How to use stop-losses to maximise profits

1 mins. to read

In my opinion, investors/traders don’t spend enough time on putting together a strategy that helps them decide when to get out of a profitable position. All of the effort gets channeled into finding a perfect system for where to get in – which of course doesn’t exist! But where you finally get out is what…

Are women better traders and investors than men?

Back in 2015, when I was raising funds for my FinTech start-up CityFALCON, I mentioned that our most active user on the platform is a woman who trades from home while her family is out. I would never have imagined of the reaction that I got then: “this clearly can’t be one of your target…

Cap-XX: Triangle breakout targets 12p plus

1 mins. to read

Cap-XX (LON:CPX) seems to be sending some mixed messages out on the fundamental front. But at least on the technicals we are looking at a situation where the longs are on the front foot. The 7 June update from supercapacitor designer and maker Cap-XX was a good news/bad news affair in the sense that while…

It would appear that the optimists are back in charge as far as Petrofac (LON:PFC) is concerned. The question now is whether or not this can last… Although it is difficult to be entirely precise when a stock or market is under the influence of controversial newsflow, it was possible to suggest that below 380p…

URU Metals: All about the 200 day line

I was keen enough to attend a presentation of URU Metals (LON:URU) earlier this year when the shares were trading above 4p. The question now with the stock below 2p is: What are the technicals saying? For a company which was seemingly on everyone’s lips to start 2017, there appears to be something of a…

It has been a rather rough ride to say the least for shareholders of Ncondezi Energy (LON:NCCL). The question now is whether or not recovery is finally in the air. In terms of how nasty a small cap situation can be, there have been a few in the recent past where the share price has…

Arian Silver: Wedge breakout points back towards 1.30p plus

1 mins. to read

It would appear that stock market darling Arian Silver (LON:AGQ) has rather cooled off since earlier in the year. Presumably its fans are hoping for fresh fundamental drivers. Shares of Arian Silver have been on the back foot of late, not helped one supposes by the rather lacklustre state of the underlying metal. However, I…

Kaz Minerals: Triangle breakout could lead to 700p

Kaz Minerals: Triangle breakout could lead to 700p

1 mins. to read

The chart of Kaz Minerals (LON:KAZ) is typical of many contemporaries, in that the past few months have witnessed a consolidation of massive moves to the upside. One of the big problems with trading is trying to assess whether a bull run has ended or whether we have a dip to buy into. This is…

It seems appropriate to update the technical position on recent Chart of the Day favourite, Bos Global Holdings (LON:BOS). Although I have interviewed Bos Global on a couple of occasions, it has to be admitted I might have to interview the company a hundred times to get the full picture regarding the business productivity software…
