Natwest and the price of Gold!

#Brent #DaxFutures Our Friday report here for the FTSE proved quite prescient. Our criteria provided a secondary target at 6949 points. The market bottomed at 6941 points. In addition, we’d been a touch hysterical regarding the dangers of an opening second spike. An initial 7096 calculated as possible, the best the market attained being 7092 points in an opening spike!

As expected, the index toddled off, thereafter, in the opposite direction. It almost felt like we’d written the script for the day and now, London needs actually close a session above 7022 to firmly suggest the 9th uptrend break in 11 months isn’t genuine. There are some slight hints it may not be, so we shall be interested if the FTSE staggers above 6994 points on Monday. If so, there’s a pretty fair chance the market may exhibit some surprise gains.


Basking in this ointment is Natwest, the share price fluttering around like a fly on steroids. The share has a Blue line, a downtrend since 2007 (arguably, thanks to consolidation) and price movements since August tend confirm the market is paying attention to this trendline. The inset on the chart below shows, aside from a brief break of Blue last week, the market has tended respect the trend and as a result, we’re apparently allowed to hope for gains, rather than a further thumping for the beleaguered share price. Generally, when the market promptly corrects a retreat below a trend, some optimism is suggested. The immediate situation appears quite straightforward as strength above 217p should now provoke a gain to an initial 225p with secondary, if bettered, at a longer term 251p.

Conventional “rules of engagement” suggest above 225p should prove significant for the longer term, taking the share price into territory conventionally described as happy. Perhaps this shall prove the case, if we could only forget about Brexit and Covid-19.

Trends and Targets. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.


GOLD USD is behaving a bit oddly, obviously capable of giving the mining sector a bit of a hammering if our fears play out. Mining sector shares rarely flourish when the price of gold melts down. At present, below 1739 should provide early warning of potential trouble. This risks triggering reversal to an initial 1720 and hopefully a proper rebound. The greater danger appears should 1720 break as this risks ongoing drilling down toward 1623 dollars.

Such a calamity allows a further calculation, should 1623 break, with ongoing excavation to an eventual bottom of 1450.

At present, the value requires above 1837 to create a scenario for future gains, given an initial potential at 1862 with secondary, if bettered,  at 1950 dollars. Such frivolity would place the metal in sight of a future 2079 high, should everything become flamboyant!

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.
