Trends and Targets for 25/06/2018

FTSE THIS WEEK (FTSE:UKX) Last week managed to pretty much conform to our expectations, right until the point when the FTSE opted to go slightly mad. Our problem was, the market ticked every box for the 7,500 level, flattened 50 points higher then erupted like a surprise pimple.

There’s a fairly large however lurking in the wings. And as always, it’s a BLUE line!

Currently, the FTSE requires exceed BLUE at 7,750 points to escape a path to 7,500 initially with secondary, when broken, at a bottom of 7,360 points. Unfortunately, it appears the high jinx of Friday only imparted sufficient near term strength for growth to 7705 points.

What happens in the event 7705 is bettered?

In theory we shall be looking for miracle recovery continuing to 7750 initially, essentially a donk against the downtrend. In the event 7750 is exceeded, things get a little more interesting at 7790 points along with the requirement we update our thinking.

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.
