#Brent #Dax “Why don’t you just buy a classic British motorcycle?” said my wife. We were discussing weight loss and she had a vivid memory of my fitness levels improving, along with sharp loss of weight. Unfortunately, the machine in question was a 1949 AJS 500, a sod of a machine which usually broke down, needing pushed home when I ventured out.
Needless to say, I loved it, even the day I fractured my neck (and still had to push the damaged bike home). Years later, an X-ray revealed the historical damage but I still recall the bang when my helmet touched down first. Perhaps this is a strange way to start writing this weeks banking article and, while it’s tempting to draw analogies with banging ones head off a brick wall, the truth is stranger. Someone emailed asking if we’d take a look at an Australian company called “BSA”. Immediately remembering another British machine which needed pushed, often (A BSA Bantam), any assumption the Australian BSA were a reincarnation of the UK company proved incorrect. They’re a technical services contracting company and their share price is pretty boring at 0.28 AUD. Only if it wanders above 0.4AUD shall it risk becoming useful.
Bank of America, unlike BSA, already looks capable of some useful movement. Around a year ago, Warren Buffet bought BoA share price at somewhere around the $24US mark, almost doubling his $2bn investment value while the rest of the world coughs politely in the background. With US earnings season announcements proving positive, we shall be fascinated if the share price wanders above $47. Presently, the share is trading around $46.4, so this isn’t one of these vaguely distant potentials. Above the trigger calculates with the potential of further growth toward an initial 49.1 with secondary, if bettered, at $51.8 sometime in the future.
We cannot calculate above this level presently as it implies a new high for the price. However, we suspect some hesitation, should $51.8 make itself known. The share price needs diminish below $38 to justify panic.
Lloyds Bank. Lloyds, yet again did something useful following our previous update. Presently trading around 49.1p, the share price met our recovery scenario and moved, pretty precisely, to our target levels. Now, the situation exists where we can advance another set of circumstances, this time presenting some rather more useful target levels.
Above just 49.3p currently looks perfectly capable of triggering a nod in the direction of 51.9p. Our secondary, if such a target level exceeded, calculates at 54.7p, pretty close to the pre-pandemic high. Should the share price follow the footsteps of BoA above, some reversal is probable at this level, hopefully short lived. It would be especially nice if Lloyds followed a similar upward trajectory but we’re not inclined to hold our breath!

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.

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.
