    I've had much similar days over Christmas and New year. Bought in at completely the wrong time In OCGN will see if it carries on dropping and double back to save myself.
    Luckily I learned my lesson and took healthy profits on most of my holdings instead of waiting for bigger returns and losing out.
    Just praying for IAG to get me back to my BE point as I've been sat on those for the past 9 months. Would love it of they triggered £2 but can't see it happening the longer lockdown continues.

    Will be keeping a long term eye on Nio, BNGO and jagx as I think there's room for more growth.

    But definitely had some bad days over the course of the last 6 months and thats the benefit of this thread as its the losses we talk about to oppose to just the gains which gives a real indication and reassurance that the markets are volatile and unpredictable as many of us are finding out with OCGN

    Aye it was fairly ****e. Days like this make me want to sell everything on my Plus 500 account and withdraw it. It’s way too handy to keep looking at the app and checking it.

    I was tempted but I don’t need the money right now so I’m thinking it may as well stay where it is. Any thoughts on the talk of a crash?

    :thumbsup:

    Im still of the opinion that’s it’s just being manipulated by the big boys to pick up cheap shares for a reason, I could well be wrong and it’s painful to watch in the meantime!

    I’ve got a fairly sizeable holding, but got in early so my average is 1.53. I’m happy to sit on it for a while as I saw it as a prospect over a couple of months not weeks. As it stands it’s still over 500% up on 3 weeks ago, if it was a worthless pump and dump stock it would have been back there now.

    Weird how these things go, drops like a stone, absolutely flatlines all day then goes vertical the right way. Bizarre!

    Yeah, I have a feeling it may run up (or down) at the same rate....buy in and set stop loss.

    The drops for RR and IAG were due to the number of shares issued and price they were issued at. You have to calculate the theoretical ex rights price. The RI is done so that’s one positive in the fact they are not going bust right now but the more important question is where do you see the industry going over the next 12 months. Pent up demand could mean bookings rocket come summer or the virus could drag on for years due to various factors.

    There’s will be 85% more shares in issue once the RI is complete so previous share prices are not equivalent and likely never reached again (at least in the next 5 years).

    Apologies if you've mentioned earlier on in the thread - which platform are you trading on?
    I use IG on my phone but I can only ever place Limit Day orders. No stop loss, no fill or kill, nothing but Limit.

    I'd quite like to have the additional order options so I can set orders and forget about it. Especially as I have a fair sum in a company on ASX, where the trading hours are a pain in the ass for us UK lot.

    On another note, can you set a trailing value on the stop loss to smooth out small dips that typically occur as the price rises?

    Also use IG. TBH, I tend to go long on most of my positions so when I use the stop, it is for intraday trades only. Pretty sure there is a fill or kill option but unfortunately no trailing stop loss option (that I can see). If I trade intraday on a share, I set the stop loss and then manually adjust the stop value in the working orders tab when there are large moves and I want to hold the position - a manual trail if you like ! IG allows you to adjust the price and volume on an existing stop rather than cancelling order and re-inputting with new values.

    I tend to not use the mobile app tbh. Functionality seems much more limited to the PC / Mac version. Handy to have if you need to get in/out something quickly during the morning dog walk though !

    Thanks for the info. I don't think I've ever opened IG on a desktop browser, I'll take a look!
    Maybe I'll start walking the dog between 11pm-7am :eek:

    You guys think it's good idea to buy bitcoin now, I know the rate is high at the moment but seems like it just keeps increasing.

    Depends if you know something no one else knows? It’s a big gamble really so depends how risk averse you are.

    Would you be happier with say a 20% gain or more annoyed with a 20% loss..and possibly further drops

    This. I still don't really get it but some on this thread seem to be doing well, so good on them. Never say never, but not for me right now.

    Bngo back at it again. Seems like they flip a coin at open and call it to decide if it's going up or down

    Itaconix is up another 35% on yesterday
