    T212 has **** the bed for the millionth time. The whole website was down just for the start of the US markets.

    First there was an error website page. Now 502 Bad Gateway.

    Yep, here too.

    It literally happened at 1430 on the dot. I wonder if today is going to be a big day in the US markets?

    Well, BOJO's announcement just caused my energy and travel stocks to take a nose dive.

    Great big chart nice



    I guess they liked this new ground x4 news on AAZ, I was hoping for 90p but it can still do that if its not beating 200.

    seems like the only reason BP shares are down 15p is because a few hundred people wrongly had receipts saying they won £2,000 and BP is going to pay out, but BP make 45bil/Q so it's almost nothing?

    apart from the fuel leak being back in the news:p but that was 2 days ago and seemed to barely have any impact

    UN shipping regulator approved it so bleh....

    probably just eco warrior mobs trying to make bp look bad

    Absolute insanity going on with GME (Gamestop) this afternoon. It's gone from $40 -> $72 -> circuit breaker triggered -> $64 -> back to $70.

    I've only recently started trading and I must admit I took a gamble on GME thanks too r/wallstreetbets.

    Glad I did though as making a very nice profit on it even with it diving every now and again!

    The question right now is do we believe it's going to go above $75 dollars or do we hold out and see whether we can get it to $100!

    I just wish I put more in! Only have 5.8 shares but still seen an increase of £100 over my £160 initial investment.

    Will see what happens by end of next week as it seems most believe we can get this to $100.

    I have £50 sat in some penny stocks and tempted to move it over but wouldn't even get a single share for that...

    Wish I dumped more when it was still $30 but being a complete newbie, I didn't want to risk £4k on a prediction by some random internet people :D

    This is where you're going wrong.

    If you were really into wall street bets you'd buy the dip ******!

    I had 1 share in GME. Going to blow the profits on hookers and blow ;)

    On a more serious note, it's nice to see some my staples AZN and MSFT pick up after a while in the red. With the fall in value of the dollar I was down a fair amount in GBP terms. Hopefully the rally continues.

    Really interesting to see what happened with Intel after beating their own and shareholder expectations, but seeing declining revenues and a decent drop in share price.

    Won't GME just crash back down though? Seems it's based on nothing

    its based on putting Citron Research out of business as they have massive shorts on GME. So it will be pumped as high as it can go , its all about jumping on for the ride and jumping off with the bags off cash and not left holding, it should get to $100 next week but might run out of steam after that.

    There's plenty of signs that it's actually turning around as a company though too. While the pump from the short squeeze won't be sustained, it doesn't seem like it will be returning straight back to the lows

    Christ alive this GME stuff is wild. Its hard to regret not getting in on the action but I guess I'm here to slowly make a million or two.

    I've been looking at DPP.L this weekend. The Poland franchise has been shaken up recently and is well off some of the other franchises. If the management can run it reasonably enough post merger, I can see a route to this reaching low 20p range in the next few years.

    didn't they make a loss even during covid? a new console launched last year too?

    don't see how anyone has faith in them tbh, the business model probably relies on impulse purchases and people trading games in.

    anyone else probably goes to bezos who's bound to beat them on price or just buys games digitally
