#Brent #Dax The final week of January always tends prove quite traumatic. Historically, we’d felt it was either the Economic Forum in Davos (May this year) or the proximity of the Chinese New Year (1st Feb). On occasion, China has made some sort of announcement which impacts negatively on the world, then closes its own stock market for the New Year holiday in the hope the dust settles for their return.
But this year, the trauma has started a few days early and lots of commentators are running around in ‘headless chicken’ mode, predicting the worst for the markets. We’re not entirely convinced, despite some traumatic reversals on Friday.
Did anyone notice FTSE Futures closed the week at 7,421 points at 9pm on Friday? This was exactly the level we’d proposed a bounce from in our ‘FTSE for FRIDAY’ article. Unfortunately, we’re no longer quite as confident, thanks to FTSE Futures opening for the coming week, gapped down by a further 15 points. This provokes some suspicion the reversals may not be quite finished yet but when we review shares, a heck of a lot of them are running out of steam for drops, instead approaching levels where some bounces can be hoped.
Natwest are in such a position, the immediate picture suggesting weakness below 237p risks near term weakness down to an initial 234p with secondary, if broken, at 231p and hopefully a real bounce. Things certainly risk becoming problematic with any break below 231p as our next best hope is loitering at 215p, matching the level of the trendbreak through Blue, a line which dates back 15 years in time. For now, we remain optimistic thanks to Natwest share price doing many of the right things. Overall, despite near terms downs and ups, the share is trading in a region where 261p shows as the next major point of interest in a path which leads to 330p hopefully.
The bank needs reverse below 215p to promote a bout of navel gazing as the consequences could become pretty unpleasant, destroying our calculations for 330p and instead ticking the first box in a cycle which could end at 160p. Visually, none of this makes any sense currently but we must remember, Natwest are a retail bank and very little about retail bank share movements made sense until very recently.

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.
