Natwest Group Plc and Sleeping Beauty

#BrentCrude #WallSt Except for the stock markets, there’s a lot to be said for “nothing really happening” as we’re all in favour of a bit of peace and quiet, especially following the unpleasant year we’ve all experienced. Unfortunately, the FTSE 100 remains a fully paid up member of “The Lethargy Club” and this boredom has encompassed unpleasant numbers of shares. Thankfully, with the FTSE, the last week has given early warning for a change in fortunes and with Natwest, perhaps we should see the bank share price finally do something interesting.

The core issue with Natwest took place 6 weeks ago, a triggering movement which thus far has produced nothing. This has been so utterly frustrating we’re still featuring our irritation in this, our 3rd analysis since March 7th 2021. Despite moaning we’re not great with timeframes, it has been very frustrating witnessing the rest of the world enjoy stock markets which perform according to logic while in the UK, we’re a stock market which models itself after “The Sleeping Beauty”. We should maybe console ourselves with the sentiment, ‘while nothing good has happened, neither has anything bad’.


Our immediate hope comes from easing of many UK Lockdown restrictions from 26th April. Perhaps this, finally, shall provide an excuse for the UK primary market to wake up and dance (or whatever Sleeping Beauty did) as we can calculate some interesting potentials from a Big Picture perspective, along with a fascinating near term ambition.

For Natwest share price, next above 201p remains with a hope for 212p next, this number fascinating us since March. The bank share price has done nothing to dispel the notion, just joylessly failed to make the final step to our target level.

What sparks our interest comes should the movement to 212p occur as this risks a cascade effect. Or at least, it would if the UK market opts to follow the examples being set in France, Germany, the USA, Japan, Australia, etc. Achieving 212p should prove important to The Big Picture, triggering a longer term cycle toward 251p with a longer term main attraction residing at 307p. It’s not often we can present a scenario for a retail bank which gives the prospect of 50% growth. If it were not for the visuals on the chart below, our inclination would be to distrust the game plan as a pipe dream.


At time of writing, the share is trading around 194p. The price needs below 183p to give reason for panic, allowing weakness to an initial 171p with secondary, if broken, a scary looking 141p.
