Hi, any ideas on where its going after the 30% for the day. A quite crazy run from the low 20's. Time to get out?

US services (banks, retail, healthcare) is slumping so looks like everyone is expecting QE4. Risk-on following data that likely indicated the only thing that could have kept the scales in balance (US economy) is also losing steam. My 2nd year in the market and I've already discarded all my economy text books.

You are 100% correct...short interest = entire free float = 14 days of trading. Problem is every man and his dog is short/underweight resource names. Watch EUR/USD...these names may squeeze a little while longer

So apparently all the custodians have run out of Kumba script for short, which means the amount of funds/investors out there that went short is on the maximum limit (and no one can add to their short positions now). Question is who is pushing the share??

Okay so Kumba says earnings plunge by 96% (which is worse than expected) and then the share rallies 17% from that point onward. Who is out there buying? Everything else is jumping over the cliff but Kumba opened the parachute and then the a gust of wind took it into the clouds. +60% since the low 2 weeks ago.

China cutting steel production should be interesting. Wonder how big an effect this will have on Kumba since companies like Macsteel have been moving more towards cheap Chinese imports.

I'm short. It did the exact same thing in December when like now, nothing has changed and demand for iron is still low. Bounce is temporary, fall is imminent.

Personally I wouldn't do that. Take a punt long that is.

Look at their results just released they're skirting break-even. What's gonna happen when their mega sister Minas Rio starts ramping up production....?

Iron Ore spot still gonna drop to around $40 ish a ton & stay for couple months there. Objective clearly stated by Rio Tinto CEO forced closures on higher cost producers. Look further down this thread & you'll get what I've been posting for months now.... Short any bounce....

 

Make that couple years now...

I think you can still make money by shorting this thing down to nothing lol.

 

Impala also seems to suffer the same fate

any ideas on how much lower this is going to go?

 

This could easily go to zero with current commodity prices.  Company not worth anything at the moment.
