Trends and Targets for 28/04/2017

FTSE FOR FRIDAY & THE SPECTACULAR AIM (FTSE:UKX & FTSE:AXX) The UK market has behaved with a surprising degree of sanity in the last couple of days with the immediate situation giving a reasonable clue for what's coming next. On the other hand, the chart below on the AIM market shows it performing like a house trained politician.

A FTSE sermon & San Leon (LSE:SLE & FTSE:UKX)  Our brief FTSE lesson is basic as we like to present illustrations of trend behaviour. So if you're looking for a near term tip on the index, this isn't the place to find it today. But if you're looking for a pretty certain sense of direction, read on.

Trends and Targets for 26/04/2017

Royal Bank of Scotland (LSE:RBS) Completing our monthly look at the circus FTSE sector is RBS, the bank that likes to say "Gotcha, Sucker". Except on this occasion, it appears possible a different utterance is about to escape its vile portals.

Trends and Targets for 25/04/2017

BARCLAYS BANK (LSE:BARC) Barclays has an immediate magic number at 219.718 currently, the share needing to close above this point to convince us some real movement is perhaps around the corner. It's not a great secret understanding where this number appears - the BLUE immediate downtrend on the chart gives a decent clue.

FTSE for the week (FTSE:UKX)  Even by our usual standards of gullibility, it'll probably be silly to anticipate the market to make much sense in the next few months. A combination of National Elections, Local Elections, French Elections, and Britains Got Talent will doubtless foul things up.

FTSE for FRIDAY & FRANCE (CAC40) It seems a few folk harbor a suspicion the French index will "Do A FTSE" if the electorate are sufficiently stupid to elect a candidate of whom the media do not approve. Will we be, once again, facing a "petulant child" barrage of headlines once France declares?

LLOYDS GROUP (LSE:LLOY) Self abuse takes many forms. It can be body piercings, tattoos, or perhaps the worst of all, trying to deal with a UK retail bank. In other words, it's that time of the month where we update our Lloyds Bank outlook. Why can't everything be like our YouGov report which moved to target the next day?

Trends and Targets for 19/04/2017

FTSE (again) & YouGov (LSE:YOU) Starting the week with a grump about our marketing abilities was to produce a comprehensive example of why we despise politicians and also, a pretty good example of our work. We'd spent time calculating potentials for a WEEK and Mrs May ensured the market did everything in a few hours. Did she open a short on her Interactive Investor platform before stumbling outside No 10 with Trumps hair? (joke?)

FTSE FOR THE WEEK (FTSE:UKX)   Marketing is, perhaps, not a strong point for Trends & Targets. We're rubbish at blowing our own trumpet. Just last week, someone apparently commented that "if they were any good they'd shout it from the rooftops". Were we to point out it took Sirius just two days to reach our 26p target (link here) - heck, it gets boring.

Trends and Targets for 13/04/2017

A FREE FERRARI & HAYS (NYSE:RACE & LSE:HAS) There's sometimes a strange phenomena with the markets, one we always hesitate to comment on as it's perhaps a bit stupid. But when we allocate shares for manual analysis once the markets End of Day data is imported, recently the bulk of the action takes place in the "A to M" part of the alphabet rather than the back "N-Z" half. The inevitable conclusion, if you're day trading, things tend happen faster at the start of the alphabet.
