Level 2



Still rising
High 238.5p
BMCM @ 239.5


Gee up dobbin

At 14.07.23 someone placed a 188,888 on the Bid which took the Book to 364,572----122,493 … 44----38

Has someone got the whip out :joy:

woops, its just hit a high of 238.5


so many 8’s!
Shall we start another Chinese Takeaway thread?
It’ll be just like the old days once more


The 188,888 on the Bid was removed and a 143,780 @ 237 was entered at 14.42.58


BMCM untouched @ 239.5 on the Ask
The rest of the data you can see for yourselves.


100,659 of the 143,780 @ 237p on the Bid has been filled with 43,121 to go

IMO it has been filled by a DMM


Strange happenings

At 16.16.07 the remaining 43,121 @ 237 was removed and replaced with a 48,888 @ 237


BMCM @ 247 on a Liquidity call

BMCM sold up to his Ask price @ 247.5 and is no in a Liquidity Call down to 247.

??? Next stop 250p ???



oh yippee ! . . I was correct that the next stage of the rise would be 250p

At 10.29.16 BMCM having gained enough Liquidity from his time on Bid, returned to the Ask @ 250.5p, 3 points above his previous 247.5 position

Present Spread 248.5—249.5


There is a 11,863 @ 251, then a 13,677 @ 259 plus some smaller stuff inbetween the present price of 249 and 259, then we have a 20,000 @ 261, which would be for tomorrow in my opinion.

The Volumes are presently 1,253,713 which indicates some large Orders have gone through, and looking down the trade reports I can see several 60k, 50k, 40k and 30k OT buys have gone through.

So it is all progressing swimmingly and on target for 280 ish or higher.

As long as BMCM keeps selling some then buying some, “regurgitating” the AT’s, then the rise can continue

And me having bin out to buy some new Fork Oil, I can get on with the maintenance on my front forks.

Brew time


I can’t capture the top of the Book including the DMM’s in one screenshot so it has to be two.

You can see that VFIL is on top of the Bid so it looks like he is holding the price down while he Buys.
WINS & BMCM are at the bottom of the Bid @ 240 with WINS @ 250 and BMCM @ 250.5 on the Ask ready to Sell

So by the looks it we have VFIL & BMCM doing the Selling to the AT (CFD) traders (BMCM being the principle seller) and WINS doing the Selling to the O trades
VFIL 243.5----251 . . . 7.5p spread
WINS 240----250 . . . 10p spread
BMCM 240—250.5 . . . 10.5p spread

CANA, PEEL, INV & SCAP are all dormant.

The reason that 4 out of 7 DMM’s are dormant, is because GKP has a low amount of Share in Issue which in turns means there is too little Liquidity to be had for all the DMM’s to be working and earn enough.

But when and if the price reaches a certain price level, we may see PEEL and some of the other DMM’s appear at the top of the Ask selling for some of their Institutional Cliental

For every Buy there has to be a Sell


WINS @ 250 was bought and he has re-appeared on the top of the Ask @ 255p
BMCM @ 250.5 was bought and he has gone to 260.5 at the bottom of the Ask and moved to the Bid @ 248 to Buy
VFIL @ 253.5 was bought and he has re-appeared @ 257.5, and he is currently on the top of the Bid @ 249 buying

Close . . . . 248.5
Open . . . . 250
High . . . . .255.804 . . OT
Low . . . . . 249.90 . . . OT


Once more I have the smell of Solvol Autosol all over my hands

Spread 257----258 . . . mid 257.5

WINS @ 260 . . top on the Ask
BMCM @ 260.5
VFIL @ 262
20,000 @ 264
20,000 @ 266

VFIL @ 253 . . top of the Bid
Then its PEEL, CANA, SCAP, INV . . all dormant
And WINS @ 250 with BMCM @ 248

The bits I am seeing inbetween working on my bike are quite amazing to watch, and are quite obviously, after the recent orchestrated Liquidity calls to the high 160’s, once more orchestrated in a rise.

287,610----199,234 . . . still positive


WINS, VFIL & BMCM are presently all reloading on the Ask

Spread 253----253.5
LSE Vols . . 518,592 . . 282 trades

Front wheel off on Tuesday, emptied forks of Oil and replaced yesterday.
Today front wheel brake plate re-polished and now back on this morning
:man_mechanic: :motorcycle: :sunglasses:


WINS @ 260, BMCM @ 250.5 and VFIL @ 261 are back on the Ask . . . oops, sorry

Spread 256----257 . . already rising

There is a 12,083 @ 258.5 and a 18,859 @ 260 sat with WINS

The present High trade 258.5 is from 09.04.19

Maybe on for an over 260 finish today


WINS @ 254 is back on the Bid buying while BMCM @ 260.5 is still on the Ask selling.

Selling on the Ask at steadily higher prices each time, then going back to the Bid at steadily higher prices to buy more, is what’s happening, and whether it can continue depends on the AT traders selling in the Liquidity calls, then buying the back at the lows . . rinse and repeat

I doubt there is much new fresh Liquidity is coming at the moment so the question has to be how long it can continue.

By my reckoning the price needs to be closer to 300p, before PEEL starts feeding Liquidity into the Market from major Clients he has waiting to sell.

LSE Vols . . 894,1124
Spread 255----256.5 . . mid 255.75


111,913 @ 255 in the Auction


VFIL @ 249.5 on the Bid
WINS @ 249 . . . ditto
BMC @ 248 . . . . ditto

All presently Buying


Spread 252.5-----253

:thinking: :thinking: :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


Yesterday I said

Selling on the Ask at steadily higher prices each time, then going back to the Bid at steadily higher prices to buy more, is what’s happening, >>> “and whether it can continue depends on the AT traders selling in the Liquidity calls, then buying the back at the lows . . rinse and repeat”

Now by the look of it, many of the AT traders are holding on to the Shares they bought, which in turn reduces the amount of Liquidity that is available to Buy for the DMM’s to be able to continue the rise.

The relationship between the CFD traders is a symbiotic one, and if the CFD traders hold onto the Liquidity then the relationship fails and there may have to be a big tree shake to remind the CFD traders that they have to maintain the daily Liquidity calls/supply to maintain the rise.

In my opinion of course


Yesterdays high trade was 259.50p and was an O trade.
The AT high was 258.5.

The present Spread is 255.5----257 which has slowly crept up from a trade low of 251.25 on low Volumes.

LSE Vols . . 127,175 . . . 101 trades
AT Vols . . . 71 = 70.3%
OT Vols . . . 30

As I can’t “see” Alternative Venue Volumes either on the Book or in reported volumes it’s a tad hard to see if they are higher than normal, normal or lower, but on average over the last 10 days they have been around 22% of the total traded volume.

But it is as it is, which at 10am is presently hardly busting past days moves up or Volumes

Brew time


Thought. The Book Volumes have dropped from their 250,000+ on the Bid we have seen in the past days, which may have sommat to do with the slow down of the rise
