    Ignore him, he's an idiot. He got in trouble with the FSA for posting drivel, and he's making out they intercepted on his plans to reveal market sensitive information. He started dropping names, saying certain people (including the CEO of Exxon) have been in contact with him and have told him information. He's has been wrong so many times already, yet people are still listening to him. When something he says doesn't pan out, he just deletes those posts - it's truly comical. :lol:
    I dont take much notice of him, but was curious to know why he ant no longer post about gkp. He does seem comical tbh, seems to be spouting stuff about xel now lol

    no idea, it is being priced by pain tho, maybe it will take another 6 months before people decide they can't take it anymore or maybe it will have to go down further...200 is obviously a big level. given what happened today I would imagine it just became a "long-term trade" for a lot of people.

    being cynical, i would say that Freeman is probably getting paid by someone to boost the price, the spike is over so that is that.

    4000 shares (around £800 at the time)...I wish I had £4000 to throw at RBS...sadly im just a humble student!
    Went down to 21.2pps today. I think I'll hold off until next quarterly results are out. Though I really want to buy in, I do not have the money to tie up.

    I read GKP are planning a placement with a 160p placement price. They didn't want this news out, and are threatening the leaker with High Court. So I'd be wary about GKP.

    Gulf Keystone Petroleum Ltd. (AIM: GKP)
    ("Gulf Keystone" or "the Company")

    Response to Speculation

    Gulf Keystone notes the continued and unfounded speculation on various bulletin boards and other social media sites regarding an alleged planned placing of the Company's shares at 160p per share.

    Gulf Keystone does not normally comment on such unfounded speculation. However, due to the damaging and misleading nature of these various comments which have been posted on bulletin boards and other social media sites during the past 24 hours, the Company feels it must respond.

    Accordingly, Gulf Keystone is pleased to confirm categorically that it has no current intention of undertaking an institutional fundraising.

    The Company is also pleased to confirm that the process regarding the sale of its 20% stake in the Akri-Bijeel block in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, is continuing and negotiations are ongoing with several interested bidders. The Company will issue further updates as appropriate.

    Don't believe everything you read on Bulletin Boards.

    ahhh, that's fair enough...I took the plunge and bought 1500 at 22.26...currently trading at 22.87

    but yeah, if you don't want to tie your money up...then just wait until you have the capital and the time....people often rush in with the mind-set of "NOW's the time to make money"...but its always the time to make money...the markets are never gonna just disappear overnight....so a mature decision to hold off!!!

    the figure I have in mind is around 120p..its going to be a looong wait until it reaches that area again, RBS has gone through alot of consolidation of its assets and operations, so its a much smaller firm than it was pre-2009...but its brand presence is still recognised globally, so fingers crossed, it should still reach a figure of around 60-80p within the next few years

    until then...hopefully they'll start dividends on ordinary shares soon too

    no no, that's my exit kind of 'hope' as you will

    I totally agree that 120p in the next couple of years is optimistic...60p by around 2014-2015 is more likely

    same here...a year back...jumped in blind...read numerous articles on the internet with all these 'tactics' on how the markets can be 'predicted'...a load of tosh

    but i'm much more disciplined now, and touch wood, my new approach seems to be paying off !...but there's always more to learn!
