Trends and Targets for 23/08/2018

Lloyds Bank LSE:LLOY #BRENT #CAC40 As usual, like a dog mess on a park walkway, we’ve been avoiding our monthly visit to #Lloyds share price. However, unlike cutting the grass, it’s a task which can be delayed as sod all is happening. Yet!

Okay, to be completely transparent, the “Yet!” was a ruse in the hope of giving the illusion we expect a major commitment either UP or DOWN anytime soon but in fairness, the share price seems to be messing around a bit. The Big Picture still demands it intends a visit to 50.75p as a bottom hopefully. The price needs exceed 63.3p to nullify the prospects on the immediate drop cycle. A serious issue calculates as possible if the price somehow makes it below 50p as “bottom” works out at 32p.

At present, trading around the 61p mark, the price needs above 63.3p to send a message playtime is over, due to the potential of fairly near term growth to an initial 64.4p. If bettered, continued oomph toward 67.5p becomes possible, coming close to challenging the downtrend since 2015.

For now, despite the presence of RED, an uptrend since 2012, we suspect it shall find its way down to the 50p level and hopefully bounce with some integrity.

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.
