Persimmon Plc (LSE:PSN) hotting up?

#FTSE #Nasdaq

Before we dig into Persimmon, along with the wider construction industry, it’s maybe worth mentioning it looks like folk will be able to heat their home! The price of Natural Gas, which has been falling all year (okay, the last 12 sessions) has become interesting, now reaching levels last seen in June 2021. Hopefully, this shall drive energy prices down, along with the rate of inflation, as gas looks capable of returning to its historical trading range.

Currently trading around 3.445USD, it appears a bucket of Natural Gas (or however it’s priced) fetching below $3.3 risks promoting reversal down to 2.65 next with secondary, if broken, an improbable looking long term 1.07 dollars. Perhaps the Ukraine thing shall decide to stick its oar in to spoil the logic pointing at reversals. Natural Gas requires above $4.60 to cancel the reversal argument.


As for Persimmon, our inclination is toward some optimism for their share price. After all, if people can afford to heat their house, perhaps they shall also be inclined to buy a new one. Aligning with this theory, it appears the construction industry index, the catchy named FTSE:NMW501010 is doing all the right things, even trading above is level pre-pandemic. If things go in accordance with other indices, this market (presently trading around 7600 points) is heading toward an eventual 8,500 points, a level at which we shall need revisit the numbers.

With the builder trading around 1427p at present, above 1445p looks capable of triggering a lift to 1645p next, coming close to regaining the Red uptrend which dates back to 2009. Above 1645p, our secondary calculates at a longer term 1911p, a price level where the visuals almost certainly mandate some hesitation. For the distant future to become rosy, share price closure above 1911 shall be regarded as sufficient reason to once again stare hard at the tea leaves as considerable strength allegedly becomes available.
