Re: Probate - Sanity Check

It was my mother (in a more lucid moment) saying she wanted to make legacy gifts so she knew where her money was going. She's always saved all her change for the grandchildren. It was myself and my sister thinking sensibly that it ought to be more of a 'returnable' gift in case her care costs more t...

Re: Probate - Sanity Check

Small gifts up to £250: You can give as many gifts of up to £250 per person as you want during the tax year as long as you have not used another exemption on the same person. Just out of pedantic virgoan nitpicking curiosity. Does this mean £249.99 is the max? It doesn't say on the gov. website 'up...

Re: Probate - Sanity Check

- As of right now, should we be doing anything else finacially for the long term? (e.g. small annual gifts to limit future care liabilities, etc.) My brother in law is a tax accountant. He said (if I remember it correctly) that gifts can be £250 a year as personal gifts per person/child and a one o...

Re: Probate - Sanity Check

Sorry for your dear losses to everyone here. Loss is hard enough to deal with anyway, let alone then have paperwork problems to solve whilst grieving. I am helping both aging parents at the moment and have POA of both health and financial activated for my mother who has advanced parkinsons. It strik...

Re: A question about graphs available online

All warnings are being heeded and the concern much appreciated. I do thank you genuinely for the finger wagging however it is put. I might argue if I was going to (which I'm not) that becoming accomplished in anything takes lots of practice and many mistakes. Seeing as the expertly managed funds - a...

Up, down or sideways. Hapless so far, maybe.... but the intention is firmly to be one of those who eventually has that clue you talk of.

Re: A question about graphs available online

And it's 'fun' playing until you get napalmed, when it's deeply unpleasant. What you're doing would scare me, and there is no way I'd do it; despite or perhaps because of my career having been on bank trading floors. Take care eh, and keep limits/stops on your downside is my suggestion. Thank you. ...

Re: Growing tomatoes

Update on the outside toms. All the small ones are ripening nicely in the late october sun. Aromatico are just delicious and so will definitely grow these again. Asda sell them on the vine and they're fairly expensive (but not when you get tons more from their pips). Tomkin are tasty but the skins o...

Re: A question about graphs available online

Another graph question if anyone would oblige.

What site gives a really nice candlestick graph image that can be:-
a) drawn upon very easily
b) enlarged and reduced easily
c) shows the candlestick types well for those wishing to learn the formations

You will need the official stamped copy, not just a copy. In my experience with Lloyds in the UK anyway.

With all this positive news about this share. Why the catastrophic share dip do you think? Is it just the state of the general markets?

Re: Growing tomatoes

Mine have begun ripening slowly outside in their tin troughs. No greenhouse but quite a sunny protected yard bit. The Aromatico are really small cherry tomatoes and very piquant. All ripening nicely and are like sweeties on the vine. The Tomkin have quite tough skins but maybe that's because they dr...

Yep. Tons of candles and matches. Seeds for growing food. Self winding torches. A powerful catapult/bow and arrows for shooting small livestock to eat once the bullets run out for the rifle.

Re: A question about graphs available online

All set alongside the ordinary share buying areas as buy and sell limit orders so far. It is merely an interesting point... because for making up short term strategies using the graphs as guides, they are then technically too inaccurate to base a firm figure strategy plan upon. The interesting thing...

Re: A question about graphs available online

Thank you. I thought that sell orders and limit orders left with a broker were like definite automatic computer function triggers for sales and buys. I hadn't realised they could be manual. I did realise the graph was only a representation. I usually keep the google version open as well because the ...
