This morning at 7am it was announced that the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty had lost yet another of its members. This time is was the turn of China Rerun (CHRR) to be executed quietly at dawn, making it the sixteenth of our forty to leave AIM. It is also the eleventh to be booted off the Casino following the resignation of its Nomad just this calendar year. There simply has to be a stewards' inquiry.
Over at Paternoster Square, above the headquarters of the London Stock Exchange the black flag was again raised this morning as Geong (GNG) took its final walk to the AIM casino execution chamber and was despatched.

The spread betters could be having a field day. Four more of the ShareProphets AIM-China Filthy Forty now on Death Row following Nomad resignations in just four weeks. Three in the past week: if this continues the whole lot will have gone by Christmas. But back to the question – which will be next? For some clues, we just have to look at what happened yesterday. Anyone still holding Jiasen (JSI) or JQW (JQW) is, in my view, certifiable.

Nomad Cairn has quit the China ReRun (CHRR) account and after less than two years on the Casino, its shares have been suspended. They will be booted off in a month when no other Nomad volunteers to take this on. No Nomad will touch this with a bargepole following this statement:
