Tesco, sailing in the doledrums

#Gold #Nasdaq  

A weekly yacht race takes place across the sea loch, here in our bit of Argyll. Some weeks (vanishingly few), the ‘race’ can prove less than interesting to watch, the die-hards refusing to concede an utter lack of wind and instead, being carried in whatever direction the tide is running. We fear Tesco share price faces a similar future as currently there’s very little wind filling its sails.


At present, trading around 258p, Tesco share price needs move above 264p to give hope of some gains as we can calculate the potential of this triggering an initial visit to 271p with secondary, if exceeded, working out at 279p. A glance at the chart below makes our lack of enthusiasm pretty simple to explain. Neither target price appears capable of creating any sort of high, above the market peaks of 2022. Instead, a picture forms of a share trapped in the doledrums until a creative change comes along to force movement of strength.

Should this vision of real life prove correct, there’s a serious risk of the “if it ain’t goin’ up, it’s goin’ down” theory kicking in.

Tesco need only trade below 249p to enter the early stages of significant discounting on their share price as we can calculate the risk of this triggering reversal to an initial 227p. On the chart, such a target even makes some sense, matching the uptrend since 2016. A reversal such as this is liable to prove significant, due to weakness below 227p calculating with the potential of ongoing reversal to 204p, placing the share price in a region where a long term reversal cycle to 157p becomes possible.

However, the visuals on the chart tend suggest a bounce, should 204p make an appearance.


Similar to our weekly yacht race, perhaps Tesco are not worth watching closely but perhaps worthy of an occasional glance, just in case something happens and some of our parameters trigger.

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. ‘CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.

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.
