Trends and Targets for 27/03/2020

#FTSE #GOLD Is this how it ends, not with a bang but with a cough? A trip* to the mainland was frightening. Rows of unused Jets at the airport, a Chinese supermarket with staff wearing masks & surgical gloves, a Pet Food supermarket with many empty shelves, roads deserted of traffic, businesses closed everywhere. A usually cheery expedition felt quite scary, especially as neither Tesco nor the Pet Food place issuing staff with protective gear. Meanwhile, the FTSE jumped 2.2% and Wall St managed a 6.4% day!

*Thanks to panic buying, our local town is devoid of 
pet food. Due to NOT panic buying, we were nearly out 
of rice, a staple for my gluten-free life. 
Thai Jasmine rice rocks, you buy a 10kg sack and forget 
about it, thinking it lasts forever! My job during the 
shopping adventure was driver, not allowed to get out 
of the car.

Without a doubt, something stinks, society in paralysis does not gel with buoyant market behaviour. Normally, bad US jobless figures tend to be reflected quite firmly on Wall Street movements. We’d expected the worst with a 10 fold jump in weekly claims. Instead, Wall St celebrated or perhaps, the market opted to react against those with short positions! Obviously, we suspect the latter argument and it’s probable the index shall pay the price in the days ahead.


If we suspend disbelief, it’s now the case of movement above 5815 leading to an initial 5900 points. If exceeded, the secondary is at 5950. Importantly, perhaps, we have two very different criteria currently suggesting some volatility at the 5950 level. Above 5950 remains with 6474, an “it was all a bad dream” target level.


It was almost reassuring seeing the FTSE rise stumble at the level of the immediate Blue downtrend. It carried a suggestion some sanity remains in the marketplace and normally we’d expect push-back anytime now. That being the case, traffic now below 5668 looks capable of reversal to an initial 5618 points, pretty useless given the severity of recent swings. If broken, secondary calculates down at 5487 points.


Have a good weekend and stay safe.
