Our popular Free FTSE for Friday

#FTSE #Gold

We suspect the FTSE is performing in a similar fashion to the UK prime minister, essentially avoiding doing anything useful during the holiday season. For the FTSE, there’s the extremely obvious Blue line currently at 7646 points and despite several arguments favouring movement toward it, the index assiduously avoids taking the initiative.


This nonsense is creating a situation, where we suspect the FTSE shall spend the rest of the month dodging around between the 7,420 level and 100 points higher at 7,520. If we’re correct, this certainly creates a profitable potential scenario for those brave soles with patience, effectively enabling anyone to take their best shot from half way with a 50 point stop. Obviously, the half way mark is at 7,470 points and by amazing coincidence, the FTSE closed Thursday 11th at 7,469.83 points, pretty much bang on half way.

The immediate situation presents a picture where weakness now below 7,460 is supposed to present reversal to an initial 7,444 with secondary, if broken, at 7,420 points and hopefully a rebound. This, certainly, would be in accordance with our scenario, also presenting a situation where a Long position could be opened at 7,420 with a reasonably tight stop, perhaps around 15 points below. The choice is yours though.

Should there be a successful bounce from the 7,420 level, we’d hope it’d make its way toward an initial 7,450 points with secondary, if bettered, around 7,480 points. Then, suspect it shall settle back to the half way mark before next time, attempting a surge upward.


Perhaps it’s the holiday season, permitting such whimsical nonsense but it’s quite strange how recent price movements are tending adhere quite firmly to our calculations, almost confirming our often repeated suspicion of the FTSE being “parked” for August unless any world events start to drive contrary behaviour. This would be a bit of a pity, ‘cos we’re starting to enjoy the wonderful weather and feeling increasingly smug we haven’t scheduled “leave” until October.

Have a good weekend and remember the Factor 50.

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.
