    I probably wouldn’t check the markets today if I was you. Unless you have some spare change hidden away in your ltd Company.

    Lloyds is almost back to where is was when it was “tipped”. Once a dog and all that.


    This is why we wait for higher lows to confirm a trend reversal. A bounce off 25p, and I'll make the order, 'V' can verify. No higher low, no go... those are the rules.

    No, I don't subscribe to Occam's razor (not prescribe).

    Everything can be put down to stupidity, lack of care and incompetence. In the real world there are many vested interests who focus on their own wants and desires. "Occam's razor" is used to distract from this and to excuse malevolence, disguised as incompetence. Think of the sheer volume of terrible things that occur in the world that happen due to purposefully terrible acts.

    Don't excuse the perpetrators. As any act can be caused by incompetence, Occam's razor excuses the guilty.

    You've completely misunderstood Occam's razor. It's about unnecessary complexity, not about simplicity. If your argument is that people co-opt stuff for their own ends, well, duh.

    It's a pity Einstein did not make a quote for future dumb people quoting him to support their dumb views.

    Indeed, what a strange interpretation (rant) of Occam's razor.

    I thought his make-believe might be finally kaput.
    Scoots still says that Apr 2020 didn't mark the start of a new stock bull market.
