The chart above shows the tip history by a particular tipster for a specific stock.
Here you can see each tip a tipster has made on a stock set against the stock's price movement since the original tip.*
Below the chart you will see a list showing the history of tips for the stock by this tipster. Click on any of these for more detail on each tip.
A tip will only close when a new tip with a change of direction supersedes the old tip, or the tip has reached a target price (if one has been set by the tipster).
For example: if a tipster places a 'buy' tip of the 1st Jan and a 'sell' tip on the 5th Jan, the 'buy' will close on the 5th and the 'sell' tip will be the open (active tip).
Some examples of the Tip Close logic
Sell -> Buy = This is a change of direction, so the 'sell' tip will be classed as Closed and the 'buy' tip classed as Open.
Avoid -> Hold = This is also a change of direction, so the 'avoid' tip will be classed as Closed.
Buy -> Hold = this will leave the tip classed as Open (active)
