Barclays Plc & a Nasdaq thought

#Brent #DAX On Friday, we piled on the doom & gloom but gave a crucial caveat; “Perhaps the Nasdaq is an early indicator the wildly mooted stock market recession is perhaps not currently scheduled.” It’s interesting to note the Nasdaq has also now produced a pretty classical Lady Gaga moment!

With shares, when a price is Gapped Down below a trend, shortly thereafter the price finding itself Gapped Up above the trend (hence, GaGa), it generally provides a pretty safe and solid indication some strong movement should be anticipated. In the case of the Nasdaq, if we let out all the string in the metaphorical kite, the two circled areas on the chart below allegedly are now suggesting this index intends commence recovery to 14,400 points. Given the media are full of warnings for a coming market crash and recession, we’re now officially puzzled but we cannot ignore Friday producing a 3.5% gain on the Nasdaq! Couple this with the market exhibiting a very deliberate movement to correct a forced drop, things may become quite positive.

Barclays We’re inclined to apply similar recovery logic from the Nasdaq to wider markets, especially as we expressed curiosity relating to last weeks movements and this suspicion proved correct with Fridays surprise movements. Obviously, Russia etc is still going on, the Pandemic still inflicts a headache, and supply chain chaos is on ongoing issue. But far too many positive movements occurred last week, many of which cancelled our Big Picture drop logic.

With Barclays trading at 159p at time of writing, the share price currently need only exceed 162p to suggest the potential of “surprise” movements to an initial 172p with secondary, if bettered, at 186p. Should we opt to apply the Nasdaq model as delineated above, the price could simply keep trundling upward to 203p as a major point of interest.


If things intend go pear shaped for Barclays, the price needs below 146p to risk triggering reversals to an initial 133p with secondary, if broken, a hopeful “bottom” at 114p.

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.
