Glencore Plc, an impressive little company?

#NK225 #DAX As the American markets close for Thanksgiving, their final holiday before Xmas, we can only rue the state of a holiday parsimonious UK, our last trading holiday being in August. Traditionally, Thanksgiving Thursday witnesses very little happening with European markets while the US is closed, the day inevitably ending pretty flat. Perhaps this year shall be different, thanks to markets recently tending to do their own thing. Wednesday saw Wall St close slightly down, whereas the Nasdaq and S&P both managed slightly up.

Long story short, we’re NOT currently expecting fireworks from the FTSE, despite low level indications pointing at gains for Thursday.


As for Glencore, the share has proven tediously slow this year. We reviewed the price back in February, giving a trigger level of 295 which was to provoke gains toward 408p. The pace of movement has been such, the price took until last month, just to reach 400p. We’re not convinced this glacial movement is wrong, just painfully slow, and suspect our target level can now be refined slightly. Price gains now bettering 400p suggest gains coming to an initial 416p with secondary, if bettered, a pretty confident looking 463p.

We do suspect some hesitation shall take place, should 463p make an appearance within living memory!

Something pretty important is worth consideration from a Big Picture perspective. In the event Glencore manages to close a session above 416p, the share exceeds the highs of three years ago and shall now be regarded as entering a cycle toward a longer term 578p.

One thing about Glencore surprised us. We’d known of the companies metal & mineral mining business, always assuming copper etc was their mainstay. It was therefore a surprise to discover they also mine thermal coal for the energy market, a source which somehow or other received a blessing of sorts from the recent Climate conference. Perhaps their stance as the market leader is recycling of copper earned them brownie points from the green folks. In addition, the company also market the products they mine, handling the international transport from sale to delivery.


To summarise, we feel Glencore enjoy many positives, perhaps just needing favourable market conditions for their share price to flourish properly. As the chart below shows, there’s an obvious glass ceiling at the 400p level and should this finally break, the pace of acceleration may improve somewhat. To cause concern, the share would need reverse below Blue, presently 340p. as a cycle to 188 becomes possible.

Our thanks, as ever, to those who discover a fascinating advert on this page and visit it. It buys us a welcome coffee.

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. ‘CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.
