    Nice gap down on the ftse cash mkt....normally (93%) of the time this gap will within 5 trading days fwiw.
    Lets see if it does? One caution though....the longer it takes to fill the bigger the drawdown risk.

    Last week Marks and Spencer came out with disappointing results but the market gapped higher. We suggested to our clients to sell at this time, and this has gone very well.

    Today Tesco released disappointing results and gapped higher (Don't ask me!!) . We have seen selling from this strong open (Shock horrror!) ... Have a look at my chart to show the similarities (so far) in price action...

    Should drug deals and prostitution be included in GDP?

    The Week
    Britain will see a boost in measured economic activity later this year when activities previously never measured — specifically, drug dealing and prostitution — are incorporated into the measure.
    At first the changes will only include U.K. production of cannabis, drug smuggling, and prostitution, but it is expected that off-the-books employment, black market gambling, software piracy, and sales of stolen goods will also eventually be included.
