Trends and Targets for 1/08/2018

#Hummingbird (LSE:HUM) #CAC40 #SP500 It’s almost fraudulent claiming this is the end of July. We all know the month ended last week as there’s sod all happening. Brexit, Novichok and Meghan are all the media are concerned with. But the FTSE has powered up!

Oddly, this time of the year can also produce some surprise movements amongst shares and we’ve had a bunch of mails asking about the prospects for Hummingbird. If nothing else, it appears people are looking at it. As usual, we have taken absolutely no interest in what the company do, opting to focus on the numbers and strength potentials. Generally we find this approach fairly safe unless something game changing comes along.

With Hummingbird, we’re a little bit concerned though, due to the share price now managing to close marginally below a prior low of 29.8p. This unfortunately stuffed it into a region where traffic continuing below 28p will tend drive the price down to 25.75p, a point where a bounce can be hoped. It’s critical the price does not close below 25.75, due to our next drop target lurking at 24.75p along with a clear break of the RED uptrend since 2016. A move such as this stuffs the price into a region where “bottom” calculates at 11.5p.

However, there share price has been messing around aimlessly for most of this year and now need only find an excuse to exceed 33p to enter a cycle toward an initial 36p. Something like this will tend change direction quite rapidly, bettering the ruling downtrend and placing the price in a zone where above 36p is very liable to provoke further recovery to a game changing 44p and a region with 67p as an extremely viable longer term ambition.

In summary, despite it breaking below this years boring 5p price range, we rather suspect this to be a harbinger for some future upward travel rather than a warning the price intends hit the 11p floor level.
