The investing, trading and learning journey

By Peter Higgins, 07 Oct 2016

Three years ago I came up with the concept for a investment-focused podcast for the ShareTalk website I work on, called Conkers' Corner after my Twitter handle of @conkers3, and five months ago the first recording was made. Below are some of the lessons I have learned or have been reinforced during these years.

The concept of Conkers' Corner is very simple yet extremely educational and beneficial for all: the participants in the podcasts and interviews since I started in May 2016 have included shrewd investors/traders, ISA millionaires, high net worth individuals, business leaders, CEOs, highly respected fund managers and investment writers.

FTSE 100 nears a bottom

By Thierry Laduguie, 14 Sep 2016

The FTSE 100 (UKX) failed to make a new low on Wednesday below 6654.5, though it did dip below that level outside official trading hours.

The Elliott wave pattern (see chart) is recorded between 8am and 4.30pm which comprise the normal market hours, which means there is a chance the decline ended at 6654.5 as per the alternate wave count.

Range trading can be risky - here's some advice

As long as a prolonged sideways price movement is in place, traders may enjoy consistent potential profits by going long on the support area and going short at the resistance.
