Will Lloyds Banking Group escape the wolves?

#Brent #Dax

Lloyds Banking Group share price starts to feel like it has a lot in common with 11 year old girls, afraid of everything. A misplaced joke managed to spoil Saturday night, grand-daughters having an “adventure” staying in our caravan. The caravan is parked on the driveway, motion sensors and security lights in abundance, along with CCTV with motion sensor alerts. It’s also around 10 metres from the front door. All this stuff has nothing to do with paranoid security*** but rather, a lack of lighting in the highlands where nights can be pitch black. And the CCTV lets us know when the supermarket driver appears with a delivery!

The offending joke? Telling the girls if they heard wolves prowling around outside, to just come into the unlocked house…

Around 1am, all hell broke loose. Two roe deer triggered the outside lights. The girls decided they were wolves, the holiday weekend took a turn for the worse. My daughter proved quite condescending at breakfast on Sunday, both little girls finally sound asleep, probably enjoying wolf puppy dreams. Worse, all plans for Sunday were cancelled until the girls surfaced.


Lloyds share price has spent the last three weeks, cowering in terror from hopefully imaginary wolves. There has been a pretty obvious downtrend since the middle of January, one which gives hope movement bettering the trend should provoke recovery to an initial 50.5p with secondary, if bettered, at a confident looking 56p. Unfortunately, there has also been a well defined Red uptrend since March, one which was broken last week.

This results in a scenario where weakness now below 45.25p risks promoting reversal to an initial 43p with secondary, if broken, at 40.6p and hopefully a bounce, faster than a child being chased by an invisible wolf.


*** The final level of security for the children was myself. Needing only three hours of sleep a night, in theory there was a “responsible” adult watching telly just 20 feet away, nice and warm indoors!

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.

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.
