Trends and Targets for 13/08/2018

The #FTSE. A big picture view. #BRENT #DAX Every now an then, we feel the need to torment ourselves by looking at the FTSE since 1995. The index has certainly provided entertainment over the years and now, appears heading for pastures new.

A favourite in-house approach is fairly basic. “If it were a share, what would we expect?”

In the case of the FTSE, the ruling argument favours 8750 as a sane future point where some stumbles should occur. The only thing more ridiculous than this calculation is the width of drop needed to cancel the number. At present, the FTSE requires slip below 6280 to nullify the growth equation!

We’ve painted the historical glass ceiling at 6,900 points and thus far, from a charty perspective, the index has done everything right. Once the market broke upward, it achieved a series of new highs before “testing” the prior glass ceiling (no idea why this should happen). Since “testing” the historical ceiling, the index has again moved higher – for two days – and is now just waiting sufficient excuse to better 7904 points and commence some further acceleration.

That’s about the end of any immediate positive spin on things as despite all these healthy growth ambitions, we rather suspect some relaxation shall be required first. Unfortunately, the immediate situation is the index requires break below 7490 to confirm our fears, bringing 7360 into view. A drop such as this, while spectacular, would do nothing to alarm us. Below 7360 would give cause for concern, suggesting somewhere around the 7100 level as a viable bounce point.

For now, it’s August, it’s boring, and if you’re in Scotland, it’s also raining constantly. Roll on mid-September.

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.
