The AIM and the FTSE for FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) at around 8381 currently

#FTSE #Gold  The most recent 16 sessions have experienced just three days  where marginal FTSE reversals occurred. And even the word “marginal” may be too expansive as only 1st May only managed to lose 23 points before things again became interesting. Oddly though, from a Big Picture perspective, there appears to be a slender chance of the 8403 level provoking some near term hesitation, despite the underlying trend still pointing upward.

But first, the UK AIM market has finally taken an interest in proceedings, recovering above the Red uptrend and also achieving a higher high. We hope this shall prove an indication many of the beleaguered traders in the junior market are also finally about to experience some succour, rather than their permanent feeling of being suckers… Above 793 points should next enter a cycle to an initial 824 with secondary, if beaten, at 858 points and some possible hesitation. But for the longer term, the AIM has just tentatively ticked the first box for recovery to an eventual 1107 points. It’s certain a 41% growth potential should contain sufficient pixy dust to start some of the more stagnant shares moving.


The FTSE is bothering us a little, due to it now trading in Big Picture territory with some of our future ambitions sounding a little enthusiastic. It’s now the case where movement above 8403 points should next trigger a visit to 8513 points with our secondary, if beaten, at 8609 points, taking the market into a zone where we suspect some real hesitation shall make itself known, doubtless due to the collective disbelief of those holding FTSE 100 shares. Should this trigger, the tightest stop loss looks like 8335 points.

If things intend go horribly wrong, below 8301 now risks triggering reversal to 8099 with our secondary, if broken, at 8014 points and a return to where everything was before it started go right!


Have a good weekend, hopefully with the chance to enjoy some decent weather.
