Our world popular FTSE for FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX)

#FTSE #Nasdaq Perhaps it’s an election season thing but we must admit we’re experiencing some difficulty making sense out of many recent market movements. At times, such as on Thursday, the look on our faces was probably akin to US President Bidet when he’s searching for a clue as to where (and who) he is. The FTSE had enjoyed a fairly well travelled day, yet market futures from 5pm simply ran out of inspiration.

From our perspective, it was a fairly big deal!

 

The market was “supposed” to reach 8140 points and bounce, according to our Big Picture calculations yet the lowest it achieved was just 8147 points followed by a weak bounce. Sometimes, a price drop bouncing above a target level is an indicator of inherent strength.  What was interesting came from the nature of the bounce, market recovering to around 8170 before effectively spending the next four hours flatlining. With the actual market opting to close the day around 8160 points, we thought we’d witnessed an early signal of Friday providing some upward entertainment but this has not been reflected in after hours futures. Instead, the Futures market ended the day at 8160, causing a degree of head scratching.

If we choose to take a pseudo optimistic viewpoint, perhaps what we witnessed was the Futures market closing stable, creating a situation where the FTSE shall open without the danger of any spike upward or downward, letting the market do its own thing for a change. Should this scenario indeed prove to be the case, some hope is presented with an initial hope movement next above 8165 will next trigger index recovery to an initial useless 8178 points. If triggered, the stop loss can be at 8145 points, fairly tight given our next scale of ambition. In the event 8178 is exceeded, our secondary is more useful at 8207 points. In this scenario, we’re able to give a third tier hope at 8242, along with a fairly strong hope next week shall be upwardly buoyant on the FTSE.

 

As always, we’ve a converse scenario and this one is quite unpleasant, calculating with the threat of weakness below 8145 triggering reversal to an initial 8090 points with our secondary, if the initial target breaks, working out at an unlikely looking 7996 points. In this instance, we rather think Friday should provide a day of gains on the FTSE. Unless, of course, the UK ruling party appoint Truss & Boris to replace the deity PM Sunak, simply because either one of them achieved higher polling ratings than the highly esteemed current Prime Minister.

National Grid Plc (LSE:NG.) at around 877.5 at time of writing

#Stoxx #SP500  Few things get our attention more quickly than when some fairly respected writers start describing a share as “cheap” or a “bargain”. Quite how their vast reserves of wisdom allow them to use such hyperbole utterly escapes us as there is no such thing as a “cheap” share. At best, there’s a balance of probabilities but more usually, it’s a case of how impressed the analyst may have been about whatever ‘Important Presentation & Dinner’ they were invited to. Or maybe they’ve actually done the work and given the fundamentals a seriously hard look.

I’ve an abiding memory of an acquaintance waxing lyrical about a particular hotel group and their hospitality. He and his wife had been flown to a presentation, wined and dined all weekend, the Sunday afternoon spoiled by a 45 minute presentation on the companies plans for expansion. His enthusiasm lacked any bounds, especially as he was now on first name terms with the board. Deciding to wait a week or two after his first enthusiastic article appeared, we presented our (usual) dispassionate look at the companies prospects from our perspective. The prospects were foul, the market already having drawn its own conclusions, and despite a mini share price rally with some positive articles appearing, the writing was on the wall. The usual script was followed thereafter, a profit warning, a panic share price consolidation, but within 18 months they were delisted from the AIM, the company entering liquidation.

 

In any case, how can National Grid be described as “Cheap”. Their share price is at levels repeatedly seen since 2014, so at best it should be described as stable! Here in Scotland, the company are certainly not well thought of, charging producers £4.70 per MWh to connect, along with £7.36/MWh to connect in the Scottish Highlands. Meanwhile, in Englands and Wales, the same action is currently just 49p and in the south of England, electricity generators are actually paid by National Grid to connect to the grid. Unsurprisingly, Scotland has the most expensive electricity in the UK, despite covering 52% of National Grids network, being a net exporter of energy. In summary, are we’re based in Scotland, we obviously have a distinct bias against National Grid, the company complaining the price disparity if due to actions by the UK Government and their hands are tied.

 

National Grid share price is currently down 17% from the point they started 2024, at 1057p. An irritated series of share price movements (circled) toward the end of May saw the share price break below the uptrend since 2018. This is a worry, following on from two strong Gap Down movements by the market and maybe giving early warning for further falls ahead. It’s certainly now the case where below 859p risks triggering reversal to 822p with our longer term secondary, if broken, at 714p. Visually, there’s a fairly solid implication some sort of bounce can be anticipated, should this secondary make a shocking appearance.

 

Our usual, converse, scenario examines what to expect, if National Grid intends head upward. We’re inclined to assign a share price of 950p as a trigger level, one which if exceeded should promote price recovery to an initial 1,000p with our secondary, if beaten, at 1,077p. Thanks to the collection of large gaps, we’re unable to confidently predict anything above 1,077p at present but we shall revisit this in future, if things start to attain any degree of sanity.

*** End of “Updated Today” comments on shares.

Eurasia Mining Plc (LSE:EUA) at around 3.475 at time of writing.

#Gold #FTSE  When we previously reviewed Eurasia back in August 2021, we projected a drop target of just 10p, an ambition it achieved just a few months later at the start of 2022. Unfortunately, the initial drop to 10p substantially broke this drop target (circled) and despite a bounce thereafter, the share price slithered into the realms of incalculable, a zone where we could no longer work out any sane drop targets.

 

Despite a deluge of emails asking our opinion of what’s going on at present, about the best we can give is a deep intake of breath as price movements look like they reflect over-enthusiasm from internet chat rooms. Essentially, the ebb and flow of price changes has the usual 30 minute surge based on optimism in chatrooms, inevitably followed by reversals due to selling pressures. But unfortunately, the rises appear unable to adhere with the result, we suspect the share shall retreat back to the levels before any chatroom driver optimism.

Arithmetically, it needs below 2.25p at which point we expect it shall trigger reversal to 1.21p, a level below which we cannot calculate.

 

However, when we review price movements since its recent high, they don’t seem totally random and invariably have created a scenario where some recovery is hopeful. Above 3.8p presently looks capable of presenting a surge upward to an initial 5.1p, not the worst ambition. Our secondary, if 5.1p is exceeded, calculates at 7.4p and almost exactly matches the previous high. Unfortunately, this has the potential to create a chart picture where the doomsayers shall sagely pronounce “double top”, anticipating another price crash and creating a self fulfilling prophecy for chatroom consumption.

And at this point, there’s a reasonable chance they could be utterly wrong. Share price closure around the initial target level of 5.1p is liable to present a game changing potential for the longer term. Hopefully the company don’t start issuing further “We know no reason for recent price movements” RNS’s.

*** End of “Updated Today” comments on shares

Breedon Group Plc (LSE:BREE) at around 388 at time of writing.

.#DJI #Nasdaq  A UK company with a substantial pedigree, FTSE 250 member Breedon are starting to show early signs of some share price recovery. It’s unlikely any enthusiasm is coming from Scotland, however, with the company’s 37% ownership of Bear, the company who fail to maintain Scotlands roads on behalf of the Government. Locally, it’s quite a big deal, the A83 being a primary trunk road yet the most useful thing the company has done is emplace a massive LED sign to advise locals if the road is open or not. This discrete sign, complete with maintained generator, has been disappointing folk for 5 years as we already know heavy rain is followed by a landslide.

This lack of road maintenance also makes itself known in other ways by causing MOT failures. Modern diesel vehicles employ a device called a Particulate Filter, a gizmo designed to be self cleaning when an engine is run at higher speeds for 30 minutes or more. Argyll, the largest region of the UK, is noteworthy due to its utter lack of motorways. The “A” class road which Bear Scotland fail to maintain used to provide a route for a high speed run, a facility which is no longer available. And as a result, folks cars are failing MOT’s, due to Particulate Filter warning lights. The immediate fix is to remove the bulbs from the dashboard or cover the indicator with a bit of plastic but it’s still a real nuisance, affecting vehicle performance and fuel consumption. Our own household, with 2 Toyota 4WD’s, has a fix and we tried it today. Both cars are due MOT tests, so we took both across to the mainland and dropped one off at an MOT testing station in Edinburgh, following a fairly high speed drive across the central belts motorway. Though the dashboard light for a DPF fault was still on, scissors and a small square of black Duct tape cured the issue. The other 4WD is being left, when we return to collect the original vehicle.

There’s no doubt this Diesel Particulate Filter scheme is a spectacular failure by governments, keen to pretend they’ve worked with manufacturers to “do something”. All the poisonous gunk in the filter is burnt out in a hot orgy, once the vehicle runs at over 60mph for 30 minutes. The concept is frustrating MOT stations, motor mechanics, and car owners who face an automatic MOT fail if a warning light is visible on their dashboard. And in our own region – Argyll – Breedon Group (owners of the company who don’t maintain roads) conspire to ensure the only high speed route is generally unavailable. Did we mention it rains in Argyll? Always has, always will, and someone has even built the framework for The Ark at the top of a local hill.

 

And thus, it saddens us to suggest something positive may be happening with Breedon’s share price!

It’s currently trading around 100p below the pre-pandemic figure of 5 quid and playing footsie with a downtrend since 2021. There are signs it wants to enter a price recovery phase but we’re inclined to suggest waiting to see if the share price manages above 409p as things should happen. Movement such as this should hopefully trigger a gain cycle to an initial 495p with our secondary, if beaten, a longer term 559p and almost certain hesitation. But it’s funny, we never appreciated we could dislike a company, simply due to a big LED sign reading “Rest & Be Thankful Closed”.

Perhaps the landscape has become worn out, due to the number of tourists taking photographs of the world famous incredibly spectacular scenes. We note, without comment, Breedon Group also own a majority stake in a company tasked with providing Traffic Management Services. So they even make money out of the signs which advertise their subsidiary isn’t doing its job… But to be fair, Breedon Group appear active in the rest of the UK, often with considerable success. Plus, what’s not to like with a company whose trading epic is named after our favourite cheese, Brie.

FTSE for FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) Is it Party Popper time?

#FTSE #GOLD Our local petrol station doesn’t muck around when it comes to fuel prices. With Brent spending this week below the 80 dollar level, we shouldn’t have been surprised to see Cothouse Services here in Argyll flogging diesel for just £1.38/litre and £1.32 for Petrol. But while across on the mainland today, Tesco were trying to convince me to pay £1.49/litre for the same stuff. It used to be the case fuel in the Islands and Highlands was always sold at eye-watering prices, the blame given to our remoteness. Nowadays, the tables have turned, the local saving paying for the rip-off ferry fares!

Maybe it shall be the case lower fuel costs will make folk feel better about the markets, perhaps exerting some sort of influence on the FTSE which, similar to other markets currently, probably would identify as Magnolia if it was a colour. But we central banks starting to introduce sanity with interest rates, hopefully this shall also been seen as an upward driver for the market in the week ahead. The grudging admissions Government interest rate policy has actually been causing untold damage to economies is amusing but then again, it’s an election year.

Currently for the FTSE, above 8311 should ideally be quite useful, calculating with the potential of a lift to an initial 8340 points. In the event such a level gets bettered, we can present an amazing 8405 points as our secondary ambition. This secondary is quite a big deal as market closure around such a point shall make a future journey toward 8537 points very possible.

If triggered, our tightest stop is fairly wide at 8261 points.

 

Our alternate scenario speculates on what happens, if 8244 points breaks. Such a game plan threatens reversal to 8206 points with secondary, if broken, at 8166 points. Visually, there are already fairly strong suggests of some sort of bounce, if either ambition comes to fruition on any initial drop.

 

Have a good weekend and enjoy the hopefully wet Canadian Grand Prix.

Yellow Cake Plc (LSE:YCA) at around 627 at time of writing. Party time?

#Gold #WallSt  Still believing Nuclear Energy remains the only “green” solution for the longer term, it occurred there’s a delicious irony about my personal support for the nuclear industry. Here in Argyll, we’ve the secret nuclear submarine base, just beside the secret nuclear weapons store for Europe at the spectacular Glen Douglas hollow mountain. It’s truly worth a drive through the discrete Glen, if only to be amazed at the security which is, to be fair, unobtrusive. But it’s probable the invisible guards will know every tourists information in detail, along with their internet browser history, long before they gawk at the massive doors on the hillside and very little else. Aside from being visually pretty, there’s nothing about Glen Douglas which should attract tourists. But as the crow flies, it’s only around 10 miles from my house.

Of course, there’s a lot more to Nuclear than big fireworks and the Rolls Royce campaign for modular power stations continues to reap positive attention from the media.

The irony I refer to is a bit rubbish. I’ve a “non-fatal if treated” incurable Leukaemia, a cancer often related to nuclear exposure but aside from a bunch of x-rays following a skiing accident in France, I don’t think I’ve ever been more exposed than watching submarines being tested at the local secret base. Returning from France, I handed the folder of x-rays to our local A&E, the folks horrified at the number of pictures which had been taken. Apparently, the French had been quite “shutter happy” when taking x-ray snapshots of my ribcage and lung. The edge of a ski had made it between a couple of ribs and given the lung a good talking to. In terms of discomfort, this proved to be quite a baddy, so hospital staff gave me big morphine pills to make the journey back to the UK tolerable. When the staff at A&E realised I’d taken just 2 and had 10 left, they were immediately confiscated, a real pity as the drug had made the journey back to the UK quite tolerable, though I maybe shouldn’t have washed them down with whisky. The moral of the story, even though I’d apparently been exposed to more radiation than the UK permits, French doctors almost made it like party time. My liking for things nuclear remained.

 

The company Yellow Cake Plc provide investors with direct exposure to the Uranium market, rather than the product itself. The share price is a reflection of this and when we reviewed ’em nearly a year ago, the price indeed increased and achieved both our target levels. It’s now time to revisit the tea leaves and try and figure out what’s coming next. Our secondary target had been 655p, a number the company exceeded and also one which the share price has been fluttering above and below since meeting our secondary target level.

This sort of behaviour is generally quite positive as it carries an implicit suggestion further movement is possible. In the case of Yellow Cake Plc, above 719p looks like the next trigger level, one which should prove capable of launching the share price to an initial 832p. Our longer term secondary is now at 893p, a price level where we shall once again expect some turbulence in the future.

Obviously, we need give a converse argument, just in case this overdose of positive bias has coloured our interpretation of the numbers. Share price closure below 600p looks a touch dangerous, perhaps proving able to force reversal to 478p and hopefully, given the Red uptrend since 2020, a bounce. Our secondary, should such a drop target break, calculates down at 407p and visually, considerable hope for a price rebound as historically, it appears the 400p level had some sort of meaning for the Uranium price for a few years.

It’s a bit of a quirky one but, we suspect worth keeping an eye on, while speculating if the company staff start every week with the ‘Village People YMCA’ dance…

JD Sports Fashion Plc (LSE:JD.) at around 132.30 at time of writing

#FTSE #SP500  In news from the town of Reading, it was revealed a man has been jailed for stealing a single £49 t-shirt from JD Sports. Personally, an initial reaction would expect the headline to read “Main detained under the Mental Health Act for stealing a T-shirt valued at £49.” Perhaps I’m being a little cruel but suspect for most folk in the UK, the life cycle of a T-shirt invariably ends with it becoming an oily rag and even then, only once it has suffered punishment duty as bedtime wear for a while.

Maybe a little cynical but unless a T-shirt has been signed by all the members of the UK Royal Family, it would be difficult to attach any sort of value to it. My wife has long ceased buying me ridiculous T-shirts as she appreciated Teletubbies, Tinkerbell, or Trump (for comedic value) would provoke a willingness to look ridiculous. The only time I drew the line were a series of UK political garments as they journeyed directly into their oily rag destination as abhorring anything to do with funding our incompetent UK politicians makes sense. Most of them already know the way to the trough.

Nowadays, probably all our household T-shirts are sourced via Temu, a shopping source which always entertains with their terrible sizing for products, along with incomprehensible designs and slogans. Often suspecting Temu must make charity shops look expensive for this sort of rubbish, an unwelcome opportunity to wander round a shopping mall recently proved “interesting”. Many outlets are retailing product which my wife knew as fact was available via Chinese company Temu, many factors cheaper. While an outlet in a shopping mall does give the opportunity to feel the fabric, it must be asked if the price hike from Temu for a 75p future rag to a shelf priced future rag at £7.50 is questionable. Obviously this is a personal rant as we think Temu actually has a primary aim of earning foreign currency, prior to the company eventually deciding to seek a listing in London or New York. With the companies now legendary quality control issues, it often feels profit is not the real motive.

 

As for JD Sports, it has experienced a pretty awful six months since our review in January. While the share price did achieve our upward targets, at no time has it closed above our secondary of 136p, so we’re a bit jaded if trying to report confidence for the future. There are some early signals something positive may be about to happen.

We’ve chosen to assign 137p as a major trigger level, believing closure above such a level should now prove fairly game changing. Such a miracle would dump the share in a zone where we can calculate future recovery to an initial 161p with secondary, if beaten, at 167p and some probable hesitation, if only due to the presence of the Blue downtrend since 2022. Surprisingly, in the future, closure above this historic trend shall place the share at the mercy of a long term attraction from 232p!

Our converse scenario risks reversal below 110p bringing a visit to an initial 99p with secondary, if broken, a less likely 82p.

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. ‘CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.

Our commentary is in two sections. Immediately below are today’s updated comments. If our commentary remains valid, the share can be found in the bottom section which has a RED heading. Hopefully, this will mean you no longer need to flip back through previous reports. HYPERLINKS DISABLED IN THIS VERSION

Please remember, all prices are mid-price (halfway between the Buy and Sell). 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.
