Our popular FTSE for FRIDAY & Wall St too

It’s quite curious how both the FTSE, along with Wall St, each managed to attain pretty important target levels at the start of 2022. These levels had been calculated as viable since the lows of March 2020 and we were inclined to anticipate some hesitation across the markets, if they made an appearance.

What really surprises us is the coincidence of each market reaching similar milestones at the same time, despite the trading patterns on the FTSE and Wall St being utterly different. If there were any true similarity between the two index’, the FTSE would currently be trading around 9,600 points, rather than the 7450 level. Alternately, if Wall St were exhibiting similar lack of strength to the FTSE, that particular index would presently be trading around 28,000 points rather than 36,000. Yet, for some mysterious reason, both markets reached a level we regard (from a Big Picture perspective) as pretty important, perhaps explaining the currently case of volatility.

For Wall St, the immediate situation sounds serious as weakness next below 36,200 calculates with a reversal potential toward 36,542 points. We’ve a pretty strong argument hoping for a bounce at such a level, ideally just above this target. But if 36,542 breaks, we can work out a “bottom” potential down at 34,900 points or so. It’s amazing to note such a “bottom” also virtually coincides with the Red uptrend since March 2020, again providing an argument for some sort of bounce.

However, despite these slightly gloomy potentials, it’s worth remembering until such time Red breaks on the Wall St chart, the market has marginally exceeded our Big Picture target level and this tends imply the index is in an uptrend. If this is indeed the case, anything next above 36,955 shall be regarded with impressive potentials, allowing growth to an initial 37,880 with secondary, if bettered, now at 40,080 points sometime in the future. We do expect a degree of hysterics and volatility, if the 40,000 level makes an appearance.

As for the FTSE, the recent visit to 7,530 was fascinating, taking the index into an important region where the Big Picture demanded the index close a session above 7,518 points to promise a future of wine and roses. Alas, on the day, the best the FTSE could offer was closing at 7,516 points on Wednesday with Thursday providing a logical slight reversal. We take considerable hope from Wednesdays high of 7,530. Movement now above such a level (or closure above 7,518 points) now confirms a Big Picture potential of future movement to 7,696 points. If exceeded, our longer term secondary comes in at 8,080 points.

Even from an immediate stance, above just 7,496 points apparently should attempt near term growth to 7,536 points. Obviously, such a target again exceeds Wednesdays high, also giving London a fair chance to close a session above 7,518 and triggering the foregoing Big Picture expectations.

It’s almost difficult to pour misery on the FTSE’s future chances but, of course, we’ll take a stab at it. Currently, below 7,395 looks like it shall prove capable of triggering some reversals down to 7,314 points. Should the market opt to break such a level, our secondary works out at 7,240 points and a hopeful bounce.

 

Finally, we didn’t anticipate starting the year with such a statement but we suspect this particular analysis shall prove worth printing out and sticking on the wall. From our perspective, quite a few of the foregoing numbers look pretty important for 2022.

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.

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.
