    Will it stop at 6 bucks or continue down to 3 bucks?

    No, because if something unexpected happens in the next few days whilst they have already left for holidays would mean a loss of money.

    So, I suspect the rise was merely for the reasons that I said.

    How does a Telly Tubby looking camera fit in with Apple's sleek design market range?

    Seems more likely that it was a load of shorters closing their shorts before leaving work for Christmas holidays.

  • Financials lead market higher after rate hike  [View news story]
    They could not have the markets crashing within seconds of Yellen's rate rise so IMPO they bid the markets up today.

    Can you imagine the TV News headlines if the markets had been allowed to crash on news of the rate rise?

    The question now is how long can they keep these markets raised?

  • As Producers Get Out, You Should Get In: Why I'm Long XLE  [View article]
    The Saudis have spent billions to try and drive the US frackers and/or Russia/Iran out of the market. They are not going to suddenly stop now halfway through the job.

    We have not seen any real pain yet in US frackers. And the hatred between Suni Saudi and Shia Iran must not be underestimated.

  • API: Unexpected weekly climb in crude inventories  [View news story]
    It worked for them then so they are probably thinking the same will happen now.

    They may well have 3-4 years of low prices in their mind just as it was in the 1980s. If so, they intend to keep pumping and an oil price rise might be years away.

    The only difference now is that they have Russian and Iranian forces next door to them. The Saudis could send the world into war via mix of pumping to produce a glut and their prox war in Syria/Iraq.

  • Natural Gas: The Gaping Axe Wound Opens  [View article]
    Europe imports vast amounts of gas from Russia and LNG from the Middle East. One theory behind the hellish mess in Syria is the supposed plan for a LNG pipeline from Qatar through Syria to the Med.

    The US seems unable to get its head around transporting LNG though - the technology exists as does the market. I guess it is more for political reasons that the US is not exporting gas to Europe.

    You were wrong. The stock did not rebound. It crashed. :-)

    I have no friends who want to buyy a gopro - I surf, I have friends who snowboard and surf. I cycle and I mountain bike.

    Last year one friend brought a gopro and tried to get us interested but no one showed interest and the conversation quickly went elsewhere.

    I doubt that many 'ordinary' public have even heard of it and if they were in the market for a camera they would wonder why gopros cost several hundred British Pounds more than other makes for sale.

    As for drones:

    1. You can buy loads of cheap drones to expensive drones on aliexpress or the likes of gearbest already.

    2. In the UK drones are increasingly regulated with more and more rules of what training you need to use one and where and when you can use one. I doubt that there will be a huge UK market for a gopro drone.

  • Piper downgrades GoPro to Neutral; shares slip  [View news story]
    I suspect the Chinese export figures will have a knock on affect on all consumer goods such as cameras like gopros.

    The world has been buying less hence the much lower exports from China.

  • GoPro: Negative Analyst Calls Make The Best Bottoms  [View article]
    I have been looking for an action camera to buy for my bike - that polaroid cube is excellent value for the money - about a third of the gopro version - and I can't see any reason to pay more for the gopro version.

    Just saying.
