Long-term investors should consider buying shares in BT, Danny Fortson argued in the Sunday Times. The Inside the City columnist said BT boss Gavin Patterson is likely to ask shareholders for about £2bn to help fund his acquisition of mobile operator EE. Patterson might not stop there because the next soccer Premier League rights auction is looming. He has the chance to deal a knockout blow to Sky, whose finances are tight after consolidating its European operations. Investing ahead of a rights issue is not for those after quick returns "but if you are happy to wait, why not take a punt on BT?" Fortson said.

She has held a fine balance in my eyes and overall gave the market a boost it very much needed, before it was due to sink into oblivion just as Santa was dusting off his sleigh – we say hooray!

If you have learned about options in theory until now but have never traded an option, you may not know what to expect. Let’s start by showing you an image of a basic Buy Call trade.
Take a close look at the trade, what do you see? What comprises the basic Buy Call trade above? Here is a quick breakdown:
The Kiwi has been wanting to confirm a change in direction for today to the downside and it drops below the 0.7800 level. Today’s price action has stayed below the main pivot point, which is around the 0.7819 level.
The pivot points are actually levels of support or resistance where the price tends to change direction. Some traders watch the pivot points for breakouts, other for bounces.
The 200 Period Exponential Moving Average (EMA) can act as a very good resistance or support area, especially on the higher time frames. That is why when we see that the AUD/USD has reached its 200 EMA on the monthly chart, we should pay attention to the next moves on the pair.
Obviously, we should not leave out the fundamentals and as long as the Federal Reserve of the United States keeps hinting into applying higher interest rates, the Australian Dollar could remain weak versus the US Dollar.
