Trends and Targets for 28/08/2018

FTSE for this week (FTSE:UKX) It remains difficult to divine exactly what the market intends. While the holiday season has tended paper over the cracks, there remains a heck of an argument demanding the FTSE fall. The flaw; it hasn’t fallen!

Like a broken record, we’ve been mentioning 7360 since May and the drop ambition remains as elusive as a politicians integrity. Presently, the index requires better BLUE (7760) to trash our Bigger Picture drop fears, fears which now have two distinctly separate formula pointing at 7360 as a major point of interest. Perhaps less obvious is the secondary at 7120, should our drop target break.

Quite amazingly, this 7120 thing rather neatly co-incided with a contrived uptrend since the day following the Brexit vote. It’s one of these things we’re filing in our “that’s bloody strange” vault.

The FTSE closed last week at 7577 points and now required above 7620 to suggest Some recovery shall be real with 7677 as an initial ambition. If exceeded, secondary calculates at a rather less likely 7830 points as this would take the market into the realms of Higher Highs and a bright future ahead.

For now, we’re perhaps not clueless but certainly frustrated! However, life is rather brightened up by some sort of international water skiing championship, quite literally outside our windows here in Argyll. Speed boats at over 100mph are impressive and the noise a welcome change from silent yacht races.
