#FTSE #CAC40 Over the last five years, we’ve often sung the praises of the UK’s junior market as it appeared to have left its, often questionable, behaviour behind. Instead, it tends perform with considerable strength, far outstripping the once respectable FTSE 100 both in performance and also, adherence to what passes for logic in the marketplace. In fact, since the March 2020 pandemic drop, the AIM has tended mimic the North American markets in strength, leaving the FTSE languishing far behind.
To illustrate just how strong the AIM has become, we’ve presented the FTSE 100 as a chart overlay in dark blue. By May of last year, the AIM once again left the FTSE in its cloud of broken dreams, soaring onward with true superhero strength.
Thanks to the recent market corrections, which are spoiling the party internationally, there are early signals the AIM shall face some reversals. As a result, it may prove wise in the days ahead to glance at the index before becoming convinced a share is “cheap”. Even in normal times, there’s no such thing as a “cheap” share, internet chatrooms stuffed full of people who felt their 10p bargain could never go lower as everyone said it was ‘cheap’.
Our hesitancy comes from AIM market behaviour over the last 5 sessions. Currently trading around 1195 points, the index needs above 1250 to convince us the recent trend break was fake. The immediate situation isn’t terribly dreadful, suggesting weakness below 1191 shall commence a reversal cycle to an initial 1167 with secondary, if broken, at a hopeful bottom of 1150 points. There is an unpleasant implication, if the 1150 level breaks, as the index faces future reversals to a hopeful bottom of 1041 points.
At present, we’re inclined favourably toward a viewpoint of 1150 eventually providing a “bottom” level on the immediate cycle.
In the unlikely event the index somehow finds reason to exceed 1250, we calculate an initial target of 1292 with secondary, if bettered, still at our long term 1368 points, this being a level where we suspect some real turbulence shall prove possible on the AIM.
Yet again, huge thanks to those kind folk who find adverts on this page worth visiting.

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.
