I do understand a little about financial markets. Markets are far from perfect. It's usually the case that following bad news a share will fall further than it should and it is possible to buy and wait for a correction. The opposite is usually true too. Markets generally overshoot as people jump on the bandwagon in either direction.
Warren Buffet's famous quote is to be fearful when those around you are greedy and greedy when those around you are fearful.
There are no guarantees in life.

I'll use BP as an example .After the deepwater horizon oil disaster the shares fell from 6.50 to 3.08, less than 4 months later they were at 5.00. This was a major disaster and the market overshot massively.
There are many examples like this, people are fearful and panic selling ensues.

maybe another 18% tomorrow!!!

Deutsche bank were never going to stay at €10 .. They were over €100 at one stage .. It's like you say .. Having the nerve to decide they have bottomed out.

Just curious, stock market not for me

I thought rule #1 was to wait until price stabilises

The rule is buy within 10% of the bottom, and sell within 10% of the top.

Anyone have a time machine? Mining shares over the past year......... Bonkers! I could live with the machine just going back a month if a year is too far

I once did this with Marconi.
That's three grand I never saw again

May take a punt when they hit a pound a share.

Nothing really exciting here uk.tradingview.com/x/M…Vn/ , if we break the monthly bullish breaker at £3.05 then next target is £2.35. Keep an eye on monthly bearish order block at £3.43-3.55,
Good luck OP

Every company should have a massive pension liability, that's how a massive 30% of our population is going to live. Otherwise the working 30% has to pay pension or welfare benefits for them as taxes.

This was actually posted in the deals section? Lol.

Single shares are very risky to hold unless you keep a close eye on the company's performance and trade actively. Not something to invest in if you want a passive investment strategy.

BT shares up to 321p today, if you'd have bought at the lowest point of 297p you'd have an 8% return pretty good for 3 weeks (unfortunately I pulled the trigger too early and paid 313 so only 2.5% but I'm sure more to come)
I don't like to say I told you so but....
I told you so!
