Wild days in September
Only to see two of my trading stocks down 50% - SEY and HAIK. SEY managed to hit water and not oil in Kurdistan - until now unheard of! HAIK was meant to have better results and not worse, so two big hits.
However, on balance it proved to be a good day overall with both GKP and XEL continuing their strong runs and MNR perking up - the day ended with my portfolio well in the blue.
Then we get to Eric Daniels retiring at Lloyds. Long expected, it nonetheless will be a big change as Eric has a whole Ex-Citi mafia and if one of them (Truett Tate) gets the top job all will be fine, if not then there could well be big changes at mid-management level at Lloyds too. Somehow I think Lloyds will go for an internal candidate; is there a betting market? Truett Tate and Helen Weir have to be the front runners.
