Sometimes, it feels like our three weekly visit to Lloyds comes around faster than talk of the UK changing Prime Ministers! Our current great leader must be wondering how big an archive of inappropriate photographs TV show, “Have I Got New For You”, hold in reserve. For Lloyds, we’ve one snapshot below which appears worthy of discussion.
Our eye was caught by the share’s Closing Price movements during 5 sessions in September, shown in the r/h inset on the chart. On July 19th, the share price broke above what was assumed to be the 2022 downtrend, lunging upward to 44.3p before settling back down. For the next four sessions, the case price closed each day, carefully placed just above this immediate downtrend. Eventually, curiosity reared its ugly head and we extended this downtrend back in time, wondering where it may end up. The trend commenced on September 19th, 2008, a day where the market somehow decided to spike up to 393p before opting to close the session a pound lower.
We often warn of opening spikes proving capable of fuelling reversals but, by any standards, this one proved a humdinger.
Thankfully, while we’re fascinated in discovering this Blue line can be dated back 14 years, it’s also worth recalling this particular Blue trend line is now regarded as a historical downtrend, the market clearly very aware of it. Despite the current song and dance being enacted by Lloyds share price, it’s usually the case when a historical downtrend is broken, a new trend commences UNLESS a price once again retreats below the previous trend. From a charty perspective, this is a bit like grabbing a pole on the underground, one previously fondled by someone with Covid-19, also Monkeypox, and a liking for ‘I’m A Celebrity’ on UK TV. It’s frightening to note there’s no medical treatment for the last illness.
To pretend optimism, currently Lloyds share price is languishing in a zone where our Big Picture can start to make arguments favouring an eventual 222p as a sane target for the (distant) future!
For now, despite our breathless excitement at discovering a trend we’d only suspected, we’re a little worried at current movements as they risk dumping Lloyds share price once again below Blue on the chart, with all the misery it entails. The immediate situation allows for weakness below 40.4p to trigger reversals to an initial non-threatening 39.1p. If broken, our secondary becomes rather more worrying at 35.5p, along with an implicit risk of the share price closing a session below Blue. Our hope, given the market is clearly very aware of the parentage of this trend line, is for a surprise upward change in direction for nails start being hammered into coffins.
We’re always quite fond of trying to identify a point which needs passed to rubbish a series of calculations. In the case of Lloyds, we can argue closure above 43.5p should serve to marshal the share price away from imminent doom, taking the first steps of a journey which should lead to a relatively near term 51p with secondary, if bettered, at 53.5p and some probable hesitation.

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.
