FTSE for FRIDAY & RippleUSD Thoughts

#FTSE #Gold 

As the daily massacre of crypto currency appears to be continuing, our chum who once enjoyed a substantial belief in Ripple has raised an eyebrow, asking for an update. Last time we glanced at Ripple, we finished with a throwaway comment giving criteria for reversal to 0.40. Currently, it’s around 0.32 which is pretty close to his original entry level…


Strangely, a few days ago, Ripple hit a logical bottom level and, while it hasn’t exactly bounced with conviction, there is slight hope the 0.28 level “may” prove to be a floor level. Since reversing to such a point, the price has certainly gyrated just above the floor but has neither recovered nor broken the floor. Maybe it’s a ‘fingers crossed’ moment as we’re seeing similar behaviour with Bitcoin and Ethereum. Of course, there’s always the risk the cryptocurrency market is awaiting a magical point, when it will decided everyone is convinced bottom is “in”, enacting a gotcha drop immediately thereafter. Certainly, with Bitcoin, sufficient argument remains threatening a final plunge to the 10,000 dollar level.

But we’re a little sceptical, ‘cos it’s all getting a little too obvious.

In the event Ripple does manage below 0.28 (or close a session below 0.308), further reversal to 0.208 looks possible with secondary, if broken, at 0.151 and hopefully an ultimate bottom, due to us being unable to calculate below such a point.


However, if our suspicion proves correct regarding the 0.28 level, Ripple need only exceed 0.37 to light the first spark of hope. This should apparently trigger movement to an initial 0.561 with secondary, if beaten, a more useful 0.735.


FTSE for FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) Last night, I watched something strange happening. A moth was fluttering around, utterly directionless like the FTSE, when suddenly it dropped and flew directly to some yellow flowers growing in the garden. These flowers are generally awash with bees and wasps during the day, going about their business collecting nectar. The moth, illuminated by garden floodlights, behaved in exactly the same fashion as a bee, fluttering from bloom to bloom. For some reason, I’d always though moths existed solely on the shrieks of women, anxious not to gather one in her hair!

This, obviously, has everything to do with the FTSE as the unexpected can happen at any time…

The chart inset below is quite fascinating, from our perspective. Despite the FTSE experiencing a truly awful Thursday, it emulated the moth by deciding to visit the uptrend which it had broken during the day. But curiously, almost as if it were intended, the FTSE did not close the session below the uptrend. As a result, our immediate inclination is not to anticipate July starting with a 1st of the month massacre. Instead, above 7193 points looks capable of triggering surprise recovery to an initial 7257 points with secondary, if exceeded, calculating at 7298 points. At risk of being ‘a tease’, there’s a curious phenomena shaping up which also suggests above 7298 risks provoking a further recovery cycle to 7551 points sometime in the future.


If everything intends go horribly wrong, below 7110 has the potential to inflict some real trouble, calculating with the risk of reversal to 7090 points with secondary, if broken at 6985 points.

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.
