Will Rio Tinto (LSE:RIO) hit 7700p?

#FTSE #WallSt

Due to celebrate their 150th birthday next year, Rio Tinto (named after a Spanish river) have much to boast about, when reviewing the history which got them to the present. Active in 35 countries, they’re currently ranked as 2nd largest miner in the world but probably shall always be remembered for destroying a cave in Australia, a prehistoric site containing evidence of 46,000 years of continual human occupation.

Their PR department initially appeared to do a good job, giving the impression is was all a bit of a surprise. A little bit of research revealed Rio Tinto had been given permission 7 years earlier, a decision which had been under review when the company opted to blow it up. From an Australian perspective, the event appears to be on a similar scale, should the UK Govt opt to repurpose Stonehenge as a missile testing site with accommodation for free range illegal immigrants & LibDems too.


Prior to the financial crash of 2009, Rio attained a share price high of £72 an impressive number it hasn’t (yet) attained in the years since. Currently pottering around the 5450p level, their share price look like it has a trigger level at just 5510p. In the event the price exceeds this level, ongoing movement to 5892p initially calculates as possible. Should such be exceeded, our secondary works out at 6112p and the potential of a major change for the future.

This is one of these events where closure above 6112p is required to give the price a long term impitus to make a charge at an impressive 7792 and a new all time high.


To indicate trouble ahead, Rio Tinto share price requires to dig below Red on the chart below, presently around 4450p as this looks capable of provoking reversal to 3834p with secondary, if broken, at 3700p and hopefully a bounce, a distinct possibility doe to the proximity of each target. Real problems shall make themselves known if any excuse is unearthed for the share price to close a session below £37 as this calculates with the potential of a future excavation down to 2784p.

Given many of Rio Tinto’s extracted products are currently fetching record prices in world markets, we’re inclined to look favourably on the future.

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.
