Anyone picked up any bargain shares in the sales? I have bought: Trakm8 Holdings (LON:TRAK), John Wood (LON:WG.) Next (LON:NXT)

I noticed at close on Friday 2 of the shares on my watchlist had closed well down. When I looked into the sp more I noticed there were both very similar, selling before close but then both had a large buy at 16.35pm, now this buy price was well below the selling price during the day. As it was a buy then the close price…

You can copy them over as a duplicate to form part of your own screens and modified the rules, that way you will always have them to hand.

Dearg, it is an interesting article but I don't think it's quite as clear cut as you make out. Yes in those 4 examples its clear that you should have sold early on. However I would argue that selling winners on dips to the 50MA or below is wrong and it can be a buying opportunity, one example would be JD Sports Fashion (LON:JD.) Also…

Any views on Trump's proposed tariffs? I'm reading Canada could benefit from the Mexico tariff as may increase oil exports from Canada to the US.

Yes other companies have had this sort of coverage, apart from Sports direct they all seem to be doing ok. If most people were bothered then Amazon would not be doing so well in uk.
