I swear this market can read my mind!
This morning I had yet another incidence of what's happened many times before. I've watched the price of a share I'm interested in buying (opposite happens with selling though) and it's been up say 2% and sitting around there for some time.
Eventually I decide it doesn't look like it's going to drop back to give me a better entry price, and decide to buy at that price. I switch to another screen to prepare a buy order, then before submitting I go back and refresh the current price. Up 5% now!
C'mon, one minute ago it was only up 2% and had been there for quite a while, why has it suddenly shot up another 3% within seconds of me actually deciding to make the purchase?
I'm going to have to come up with some way of making the trade before I actually think about doing so...
