Will Vivendi SE nosedive?

#FTSE #Nasdaq

By unspoken agreement, when my wife arrived home from an expedition to the mainland, I’m always “on duty”, able to help unload whatever garbage she’s bought from garden centres, home hardware stores, and of course, Tesco. But today, she drove up the driveway and despite me working with the garden strimmer, felt able to empty the card on her own. The reason was quite simple. We’ve a petrol strimmer and there’s a Big Rule with petrol driven garden machines. Once you’ve got the things started, under no circumstances dare you stop the engine unless you want a fight with the pull chord.In a fit of inspiration, came the realisation the stock market is nothing like a garden strimmer.


Due to the machines warped sense of humour, once started you must keep it going whereas with the stock market, there is no reason to always have a play in place. Often (like currently) quite the opposite applies and deciding to step away can often be the most important winning trade. Many traders will doubtless not talk about these incidents, substantial losses caused by a feeling they “had” to trade despite a small voice saying the opposite. In-house, we’ve currently got a hysterical pretend position with one of the Spread Bet organisations. For reasons which should be obvious, we maintain several demo accounts as it can prove quite surprising how different organisations present the futures markets. The numbers never vary that greatly but it can prove a mild shock, when ‘after hours’ market spikes occur as some providers exaggerate just a little.

Our in-house faux pas occurred toward the end of January, a spur of the moment decision to “buy” Nasdaq at 13,807, thanks to a spike down on one of the demo platforms. Of course, as it was a pretend trade, it was also completely forgotten about until this evening, when a glance at that particular Spread Bet platform revealed the trade was now 1,000 points down. Placing even a demo trade, out of boredom, was silly, especially one which had neither a Stop Loss order nor a Close Position & Profit order.


To escape the above epiphany and return to the real world, our glance at various European shares revealed Vivendi appear on the edge of some troubling behaviour. Since their parting of ways with Universal Music last year, the share price has described a pretty boring path, fluttering around the 10-12€ level. However, it appears to be knocking on the door of some dramatics at present, the share price needing below 11.05€ to trigger reversals to an initial 10.5.

It’s crucial to note, should 10.5 break, there’s a very real risk for ongoing reversal down to a bottom of 8.77€, hopefully a level the share price decides to bounce. From a Big Picture perspective, the share is already lurching around at bottom levels, resulting in a mild hope 10.5 may be deemed “bottom” and with any bounce capable of bettering 12.2€, travel to 13.5 calculates as possible.

Perhaps worth keeping an eye on.

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.
