Argo Blockchain, a sure thing?

#FTSE #France With Argo Blockchain, rather quickly, achieving and slightly exceeding our bounce target given in our July report, the share price is now showing interesting potentials. We should point out, in the market there is no such thing as a “sure thing”. But LSE:ARB, the only Crypto miner listed on the London Exchange, a now showing some strong scenario for the future.

Hey, chart goes here

There are a couple of things worthy of note. Back in July, we suspected the share price would bounce before 63p. This was a price level where virtually every logic we employ demanded it must rebound. The reality came a day after our report, the share hitting 82p and failing to drop further. Ideally, this promotes the concept of inherent strength and should this be the case, perhaps it shall prove important the share closed at 173p on Friday 17th Sept, just above our 170p bounce target. With the share price presently trading around 167p, it certainly does not require a great deal of work to create a further positive scenario for the longer term.

Next above 173p calculates with the potential of further recovery to an initial 199p. The visuals imply some hesitation should be anticipated around such a level, if only due to the folk trapped since April of this year opting to Bail at Break Even. Our secondary, should 199p be exceeded, works out at 227p.

An interesting, almost refreshing, aspect of Argo’ share price movements comes from a distinct separation between the crazy swings ‘enjoyed’ by crypto currency, when viewed against price movements of a crypto miner. At times, we wish gold miners would experience such a sensible distance between reality and rumour!

On the chart below, we feature a third level target of 250p, if it all starts moving fast. While some hesitation can be anticipated at such a level, again due to prior behaviour, in the event the share price actually closes a session above 250p, we shall regard it as entering a brave new world with some extremely interesting long term potentials.

GlaxoSmithKline, some price potentials

#Gold #SP500 When we previously reviewed GSK back in March, we provided criteria for movement to 1524p. Guess what, the share topped out at 1528p last month, a pretty accurate rise to target. It even closed a session at 1525p, falling pretty firmly since. In an effort to educate ourselves, we opted to read the Wiki page on the company, a truly eye opening experience.

Like most folk, we tend take Big Pharma conspiracy theories with a pinch of salt. But reading how, worldwide, GSK amassed quite an impressive range of fines and convictions for bribery, market manipulation, false claims, failing to recall defective products, even bribing doctors in China with sexual favours, the penny eventually dropped. “Conspiracy nuts” may actually have a point. Of course, GSK are just one of the Big Pharma corporates, rated 6th in the world in 2019, and it’s certain their particular playing field is equally sullied by others in the marketplace. It’s doubtless say to say all the organisations must maintain a department, tasking with sanitising their reputation across the web.

This all made receiving the Covid-19 vaccination something of a non-event as we weren’t even bribed with a lollipop prior to the jag!

 

Since achieving our 1524p target, GSK share price has experienced quite vivid reversals, even managing to wander below the immediate 2021 uptrend. The immediate situation isn’t particularly happy with the share price needing below 1377p to continue a cycle to an initial 1269p. If broken, we would hope for a solid rebound below 1236p makes itself known. If opting for a speculative short position, we can nominate 1,442p as a potential stop loss level.

In the event the company share price somehow manages to close a session above 1442p, some further hope for the longer term looks possible as while we can anticipate a climb hesitating at 1524p (or so) again, we’d now tend hope for continued movement to 1632p with secondary, if bettered, a longer term 1707p. We can calculate higher than 1707p for the future but visually, there’s a heck of an expectation for a price stumble at such a level.

Natwest and the price of Gold!

#Brent #DaxFutures Our Friday report here for the FTSE proved quite prescient. Our criteria provided a secondary target at 6949 points. The market bottomed at 6941 points. In addition, we’d been a touch hysterical regarding the dangers of an opening second spike. An initial 7096 calculated as possible, the best the market attained being 7092 points in an opening spike!

As expected, the index toddled off, thereafter, in the opposite direction. It almost felt like we’d written the script for the day and now, London needs actually close a session above 7022 to firmly suggest the 9th uptrend break in 11 months isn’t genuine. There are some slight hints it may not be, so we shall be interested if the FTSE staggers above 6994 points on Monday. If so, there’s a pretty fair chance the market may exhibit some surprise gains.

 

Basking in this ointment is Natwest, the share price fluttering around like a fly on steroids. The share has a Blue line, a downtrend since 2007 (arguably, thanks to consolidation) and price movements since August tend confirm the market is paying attention to this trendline. The inset on the chart below shows, aside from a brief break of Blue last week, the market has tended respect the trend and as a result, we’re apparently allowed to hope for gains, rather than a further thumping for the beleaguered share price. Generally, when the market promptly corrects a retreat below a trend, some optimism is suggested. The immediate situation appears quite straightforward as strength above 217p should now provoke a gain to an initial 225p with secondary, if bettered, at a longer term 251p.

Conventional “rules of engagement” suggest above 225p should prove significant for the longer term, taking the share price into territory conventionally described as happy. Perhaps this shall prove the case, if we could only forget about Brexit and Covid-19.

Hey, chart goes here

Trends and Targets. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.

 

GOLD USD is behaving a bit oddly, obviously capable of giving the mining sector a bit of a hammering if our fears play out. Mining sector shares rarely flourish when the price of gold melts down. At present, below 1739 should provide early warning of potential trouble. This risks triggering reversal to an initial 1720 and hopefully a proper rebound. The greater danger appears should 1720 break as this risks ongoing drilling down toward 1623 dollars.

Such a calamity allows a further calculation, should 1623 break, with ongoing excavation to an eventual bottom of 1450.

At present, the value requires above 1837 to create a scenario for future gains, given an initial potential at 1862 with secondary, if bettered,  at 1950 dollars. Such frivolity would place the metal in sight of a future 2079 high, should everything become flamboyant!

Our popular FTSE for Friday

#FreeFutures

“Wake up Calls” come in all forms. While we await the FTSE experiencing its own one, a personal incident occurred at 07.15am on Thursday. My phone started its self-congratulatory alarm tone, demanding it be shut off. Unusually, there wasn’t the standard “Dismiss” notification, so through tired eyes, I entered the usual Samsung “Close All Applications” screen to buy myself some piece and quiet.

It kept going.

I told the phone to restart itself. The noise continued.

I tore the phone out of its protective case, removed the back, removed the battery. The noise continued.

My wife, plaintively, said, “Maybe it’s holding a residual charge”.

I stuffed the Galaxy Note under the pillow, the case and the battery on the bedside table. This didn’t even diminish the beeping.

Then I noticed my wife’s phone was also on my bedside table. Unusually, she’d set an alarm as we’d a big delivery due, the time unspecified. At bedtime, we’d also swapped sides on the bed, a last ditch effort to try and find the cause of her sore back. It can be assumed, my humour had slightly improved by the time the FTSE opened at 08.00am, the hi-jinx 20 point swing in the opening minute tending confirm the day was going to be confusing.  Needless to say, it was, and rather spitefully, our delivery arrived just as London closed at 16.30. And my wife couldn’t help, due to her back…

 

We’ve reason, yet again, to be slightly nervous with the FTSE from a Big Picture perspective. The index is now on its 9th uptrend, since October last year. Most of the ducks appear to be lined up, just awaiting a final trigger for reversal to commence to a potential 6830 points. It’s not a pretty picture and below 6998 points looks like providing the final trigger. In terms of reversals, this certainly isn’t a crash of biblical proportions, but below 6830 would certainly justify real concern. To escape this mess, the FTSE need only close a session above 7069 points.

Hey, chart goes here

Trends and Targets. Our incredible past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.

 

 

 

As for Friday, the market is mildly interesting as weakness below 7016 points looks capable of triggering reversals to an initial 6985 points. If broken, our secondary calculates at 6949 points. Given the market closed Thursday at 7027 points, very little movement is required to light the touch-paper but we’d advocate extreme caution, if such a trigger is hit by a spike down (again) in the opening minute of trade. The tightest stop appears to be 7059 points.

 

Our alternate scenario comes, should the FTSE stumble above 7059 as this apparently makes 7096 a viable ambition. If exceeded, our secondary is at 7116 points, along with a strong hint of some further recovery in the coming week. The tightest stop, in this game plan, is quite attractive at 7025 points. Our usual caveat, regarding any opening second spike remains..

Is Brent Crude heading to $122

#CAC40 #WallSt We last reviewed Brent as recently as June, warning of implications should the price manage to bubble above the 75.50 dollar mark. Today, noticing the commodity was again tickling this level, panic ensued with an immediate call to our oil dealer. Here in Argyll, we’ve been turning the heating on in evenings as the weather has sharply deteriorated. As there’s no regulatory body keeping an eye on oil prices, heating oil purchases can become an alarming cost, when world oil markets soar. Our tank is being filled this week, the price thankfully not surging yet.

 

The chart below is a weekly view for Brent Crude and the Blue line dates back to 2012 when Brent hit a high of 130 dollars. The market is clearly showing a lot of respect for this trend line and we’re expecting the worst. As a result, we’ve taken a further look at the tea leaves as the visuals now imply the price need only exceed 78 dollars anytime soon with fireworks possible thereafter. From a near term perspective, there are plenty of arguments suggesting such a movement is very possible.

Above the 78 dollar level now suggests continued travel toward $96 initially. If exceeded, our secondary calculation brings the potential of a high at $122. This will doubtless be great news for those holding shares in oil companies. But folk forced to purchase heating oil will doubtless remember the ‘jaw drop’ prices being asked, last time crude oil surged above 100 dollars.

Air France KLM share price potentials!

#FTSE #France I’ve a soft spot for Air France, so was interested to see the airline rated as “Strong Sell” in the listings of ‘Most Active Shares’ on the French exchange. This alone made Air France a useful candidate for this weeks delve into European derivatives. The, unusual for me, fondness for an airline, dates back to a boss saying “Take as long as you want” when I took a spur of the moment skiing holiday.

Not bothering take a holiday for a couple of years and feeling a bit burnt out, vanishing to the French Alps seemed a good idea and a 5 day trip had stretched into nearly a month. A panic call from the company asking me to return as soon as possible wasn’t exactly welcome. Apparently, the boss was malfunctioning, unable to cope with pressure. Staff were walking out of branches due to his behaviour and the admin dragon lady who called, admitted she was at her wits end.

Knowing the company would pay my expenses, an immediate taxi was called to the nearest station where I caught a TGV to Paris. Another taxi to CDG airport for a flight to London, the ticket agent advising I must rush through the terminal to catch my flight as the gate was apparently closing in minutes.

Thankfully, this was all before everything changed with 9/11, me and my guitar case charging through the crowds (the bar / hotel were sending my luggage), charging to the head of each queue with single minded determination. Eventually, I found myself being welcomed by a flight attendant, taking my seat at the front of the aircraft. The following 20 minutes enduring angry glares of people I’d elbowed aside, now boarding behind me, were not fun. While the jet bumbled its way around the tarmac, I explained my error to the stewardess sitting opposite in the jump seat. She was kind enough to ensure I’d fail a breath test when we landed at Heathrow, this making the usual unpleasantness with UK officialdom easier to handle. Carrying a guitar, long hair, tanned, and smiling inanely somehow made me a target, especially as I’d no baggage!

 

It’s amazing how a little kindness can influence the way in which a corporate is regarded but unfortunately, it looks like Air France should be giving free whisky to the entire marketplace. Their share price is starting to look quite fragile. Similar to everything else, the price took a hammering with the pandemic drop last year and, in common with other companies in the sector, is failing to show any great recovery. Ryanair, amazing to note, are unusual in this regard, recovering to the price height pre-Covid19.

As the chart below shows, Air France has been slithering down the Blue downtrend, breaking though but failing to make a solid movement. Rather unhelpfully, this sort of nonsense tends end with a sharp, vivid, price movement, the only question being; ‘which direction?’. We fear, in this instance, some excuse shall be discovered to provoke a sharp reversal.

Weakness below just 3.75 Eu calculates as capable of reversal to 2.67 euro, a level at which we’d hope for a bounce. If broken, our secondary works out at 1.56 eventually. Should this number appear, the price ‘almost must’ rebound as we cannot calculate anything below such a point. Glancing at the chart, there is already an argument favouring bounce potentials at 2.67 Euro, this matching the lows of 2020 and doubtless becoming attractive to those who will decide “Double Bottom” and take a long position.

 

Air France KLM, thus, shall perhaps prove worth keeping an eye on in the weeks ahead.

When we refer to a price CLOSING above a specific level, we are viewing the point where we can regard a trend as changing. Otherwise, we are simply speculating on near term trading targets. Our website is www.trendsandtargets.com.

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.

Marks and Spencer Plc looking encouraging!

#Gold #Nasdaq Working with wood is a personal hobby, usually without pressure or consequences but Monday produced a foul up of epic proportions. A promise to build an interior for a new mirror wardrobe kept being put on the back burner and eventually my wife produced her “ideal layout”, everything carefully drawn to scale. Pretty key to the plan was her desire for a 12 drawer unit and she’d even bought the drawers. All I needed do was built something for drawers to slide in and out.

With the mirror doors due to arrive later this week, Monday was spent finishing a long, low, drawer unit, built from scratch and by late afternoon, we were able to slide all the drawers into my 2.4 metre creation. I called her through for a query on the height of a rail to hang her epic collection of jackets from, but really, expecting praise for my work. The pine top for the unit was especially noteworthy and none would realise it had once been a dining table! She sat on the bed, looking at her initial plan, frantically measuring depths, and ultimately working herself into a panic.

“When you fit the mirror doors, I will only be able to open 3 of the drawers! Unless I lift a sliding mirror door away…”

My idea of cancelling the floor to ceiling mirrors, instead using a curtain, didn’t find favour. It appears Tuesday shall be spent creating two separate 3 drawer units. Somehow, this calamity was my own fault as I ‘should have known’. Alas, as she’d done the plans, at no point had I felt the need to step back and view the overall concept.

 

As always, there’s a point behind the story, aside from revealing our household to be idiots. Never forget, when viewing a chart, to zoom out to the maximum possible as the Big Picture can be revealing. Since our glance at M&S a year ago, the price has performed according to expectations and now, offers further hope for the future.

The share is currently stuttering as it frolics playfully at the same value achieved, pre-pandemic. However, as the chart below shows, the price has exceeded a very obvious downtrend since 2015. In itself, this is never a guarantee of a coming uptick in values. But in addition to this, the share has also bettered is initial high, since breaking the downtrend. This allows considerable hope for the future, perhaps indicating the threat of supply chain trauma may prove unfounded.

The immediate situation suggests strength above 189p should now make an attempt at 211p next, solidly breaking the high before everything went wrong in 2020. With closure above 211p, we can calculate a longer term potential at 271p, a point where we’d really need take another look at M&S movements.

For everything to go wrong, the share price needs below 130p, risking reversal to 87p. Currently nothing on the chart below suggests this is a risk.

Hey, chart goes here

Trends and Targets. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.
