I bought a few hundred DDD shares a couple of years ago and held on to them when they were taken off the AIM. I now hold them in a Fund & Share Account at Hargreaves Lansdown. The discussion at http://www.lse.co.uk/ShareChat.asp?ShareTicker=DDD&type=regular shows a current share price of around £0.02 while the share price here http://www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/ddd is over $20 Why difference in pricing?

The economy works on confidence, it can be talked up or down. For example, my holding in Tesco share has lost massive value but nothing has really changed at Tesco that I'm aware of. The constant doom and gloom about brexit is damaging. Change means opportunity.
