Somewhat half heartedly, Barclays apparently triggered a recovery cycle to the 200p level a couple of weeks ago. Alas, the share price failed to complete the job, failing to close a session above 174p, instead – somewhat spitefully – opting to close at a high of just 173.96p. By 4/100th of a penny, it carefully avoiding committing to a trigger level, an utterly frustrating movement.
This sort of thing would be funny, if it weren’t real people with real money being played with. At least the price shuffle effectively confirmed we’d been following the correct trend, despite the market pushing us to the edge of a temper tantrum. Unfortunately, in the period since, the share price has found itself under threat by wider market influences (aka, interest rates, inflation, Russia).
Presently trading around 161.86p, the immediate situation suggests weakness below 160.5p risks triggering reversals to an initial 155.3p with secondary, if broken, at 150p and a very probable bounce. This “threat” of a bounce is further compounded by the present a the Red uptrend since the pandemic low of March 2020. It’s also quite important such a level justifies a bounce, thanks to a very real implication of a further 1/3 drop to an eventual ridiculous looking 100p!
There’s a bit of a however, thanks to the current market wide series of reversals all feeling a bit contrived. We harbour a suspicion the series of reversals shall suddenly cease, potentially by the time the FTSE troubles the 6,700 level. Hopefully, this shall tie in quite neatly with Barclays hitting the 150p level.
Amusingly, from a near term perspective, Barclays share price need only exceed 167p to once again give the prospect of a visit to 174p. Closing above this level remains utterly crucial for longer term hope, recovery to 198p with secondary 202p remaining very possible. The close proximity of this pair of targets tends suggest a stumble should be expected around such a level. Visually, this would make sense given the previous highs at the start of this year.

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.
