    Because i've just defaulted on my £1,000,000,000,000,000 mortgage :-D

    It's because of jitters in the financial markets over Greece - there's a real fear that several more European countries are also in big doo-doo.

    Hasn't there recently been a change in the way they are structured or a change in share lay out or something. I swear I remember reading about something like that, well overlooked it anyway.

    Could it be due to the affects of Greece as well?

    Lol I empathise with the guy, investing/trading is mainly psycological, still learning but realise the value of taking and banking a profit rather than having a profit on paper and waiting for it to go up more

    Yeh my first time buying any shares i just thre like 5k on them cause it was lying around (jokes lol)
    im not too worried ill sell the barclays and keep the rbs

    Got the same shares myself, not been a good week but they have made good gains recently so I'm not crying about it. Stock markets all over have been tumbling because the Eurozone countries are struggling to bail out Greece and others like Portugal and Spain may follow them into the doodoo. You have to take the rough with the smooth if you dabble in the stock market. Personally I'm gonna sit tight and hopefully they will bounce back though, you may not see £4 for Barclays for a while yet.
