FTSE for FRIDAY & another bite at Ripple

#FTSE #DAX #FreeFutures We’ve a few clients holding Ripple and while we’d prefer use a UK “travel traffic light system”(always set at Red) we’re opting to feature it as a headline item once a week. This also begs the question, just how did the UK manage to install traffic lights in the sky to ensure aircraft behave in accordance with whatever directive is issued to confuse the travel industry?

The crypto blockchain, device, Ripple, has enjoyed a fairly placid week and is presently trading around US$1.09. The surprise comes if it manages above just $1.10 as apparently we should anticipate recovery to an initial $1.40. If bettered, our secondary is a bit more exciting at $1.87. Exceeding this secondary amibition is liable to be a really big deal, allegedly threatening a cycle to commence to $2.5 and some hesitation.

We’d now have significant concern, if the price of this crypto manages below $0.70 as we cannot calculate drop targets below such a level.

Hey, chart goes here

FTSE for FRIDAY The FTSE continues to move slower than our Golden Retriever, when she realises her time at the beach is over for the day. In our part of Scotland, brilliant weather, coupled with a lack of tourists (during the week) has ensured a daily visit to the local sands with the dog. She’s developed the habit of staying in the sea, just out of reach, when we return toward the car. This dog should have been on the UK’s Brexit negotiating team, her skill in getting her own way unparalleled.

For the FTSE, May managed a less than spectacular trading range of just 160 points. It also manages a pretty dull gain from 6969 points to close the month at 7022 points. In percentage terms, the UK 100 grew by a stonking 0.7%, impressing no-one.  At time of writing, the index is trading around 7064 points and we hope the current, mid term, ruling attraction from 7185 points shall not be doomed to represent a high point for June. It just wouldn’t be fair!

Near term, FTSE movement exceeding just 7075 points calculates with a potential gain toward a pretty useful 7117 points. We’re less optimistic with our secondary arithmetic as it works out at 7157 points. The tightest stop is unpleasantly wide at 7013 points, the low price of Thursday.

Our alternate scenario, if it all goes wrong (it is US Non-Farm Payrolls Friday, after all) suggests any weakness continuing below 7013 risks triggering reversal to an initial 6982 points. If broken, our secondary is a hopeful bounce level of 6922 points.

Have a good weekend, enjoy the Grand Prix, and don’t visit Argyll during the week! Our dog will thank you.

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.
