Barclays 16/12/2019

#Brent #Dax The Xmas Gestapo never forget! After an elm tree in the front garden was decorated with twinkle lights, the lady of the house drove past repeatedly, clambered down to the shore to inspect the job, eventually admitting the display was ‘safe’. A “Top Gear / Grand Tour” inspired illuminated manhood shape still has not been forgotten nor forgiven. Talking of which, Barclays springs to mind and their surprise elevation on Friday with the election result.

Our previous report (link) suggested criteria to drag Barclays up to 187p, a feat it achieved on Friday. We now need examine its potentials with greater scrutiny than Mrs T&T employed with the exterior Xmas light placement. (Thankfully, she did not fly a drone over the back garden! With LED lighting available at 4 quid for 10 metres, creative design proved easy.)

A detail of enormous importance and one worth watching for is the risk of the market finding an excuse to reverse Barclays below Blue on the chart. This could easily create one of our GaGa movements, a Gap Up/Gap Down. The formula we employ with this sort of nonsense indicates should Barclays share price now be trashed below Blue (presently 173p), it’s going to find its way down to 110p eventually.

At present, absolutely nothing suggests this is coming but it’s worth remembering something important about politics. Often, something which looks good on the day, looks rather jaded, when examined in detail!

For now, we’re pretty impressed with the shares immediate performance and now, movement above 188p is supposed to be capable of an initial 204p. Despite the 2 quid level visually suggesting a ‘glass ceiling in waiting’, we’re not so sure as above 204p should make 224pp difficult to avoid.

In summary, quite a lot of hints are saying this intends 204p. Beyond such a level and we start to develop doubts.

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. ‘CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.

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.
