#Brent #Dax_Futures It’s always quite pleasing when the market chooses to confirm a theory. We often bang on about the importance of a share price closing above (or below) specific levels as a method of confirming whether a trend line is bogus. One such scenario involves up-trends, along with the point of a trend break.
Natwest, in recent weeks, demonstrate exactly what we’re talking about.
The two chart extracts below highlight an interesting stance by the market. The Red uptrend since September 2020 looks pretty important and it appears the market shares this viewpoints. In the period since the market broke this uptrend at the end of last month, considerable care has been taken to ensure NWG’s share price has failed to close a session above the point of trend break. To us, this is a pretty big deal, confirming this historical uptrend was indeed valid and worse, suggesting the break of the trend should be viewed as a precursor to some coming reversals.
For three quite different reasons, this is a bit of a surprise, thanks to us taking time to read the financial press.
Firstly, the constraints on Dividend Payments came off last week, the UK big three expected to introduce 5%+ payments within a year or so.
Second, we’re approaching another Earnings Season for the banks and it appears we should anticipate them doing better than expected. Apparently losses due to the Pandemic were nothing like expected.
Thirdly is a bit left field. The ex-CEO of Barclays has called for an end to the requirement for banks to ring fence capital, joining a growing clamour to enable the institutions to explore more exotic ways of earning money. It must be admitted, there’s a strong chance the level of regulation inflicted on the industry has become over-regulation to the point of actually causing harm.
Collectively, the three arguments above should produce a picture of a share price desperate to go up but instead, we’re now a little flummoxed, starting to suspect some reversal make be on the cards.
Near term, below just 199p for Natwest suggests imminent weakness to an initial 188p with secondary, if broken, at 178p. In the event the 178p level breaks, all that’s left is a real hope for a rebound before a third level calculation of 164p.
Our alternate scenario demands the share price trade above 210p to introduce the potential of a gain to 215p. At this level, it all becomes a story of whether the share closes a session above the Blue downtrend, due to some spectacular movement becoming possible. Closure above Blue shall allow us to confidently mention 253p and beyond as ambitions for the future.
For now, our suspicion is the share price risks being a little bit stuffed but we’d suspect if 164p (ish) makes a guest appearance, a future bounce is liable to prove interesting.
As always, our thanks to the folk who find adverts on this page fascinating. Keeps the ‘Taylors Lazy Sunday’ coffee beans coming. <not kidding, our favourite>

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.
