Trends and Targets for 16/02/2018

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) Market performance last Friday once again confirmed why our weekly FTSE mumble is, by far and away the most read headline section, literally worldwide. As can be assumed, this is truly flattering but blooming terrifying also. Real people, real money, real responsibility!

Galliford Try (LSE:GFRD) We received a few plaintive emails asking us to look at this lot from our Trend perspective as ideally everyone wants to know where bottom might be. The answer(s), given the days 19% reversal, are probably not terribly encouraging. In fact, they stink.

The AIM Market (FTSE:AXX) As we enter the Chinese Year of the Dog, one (we suspect like every Chinese year) which will be blessed with luck and good fortune, a look at the AIM market appeared a good idea. Unfortunately, there's quite a lot not to like about the AIM, currently.

National Grid (LSE:NG.) It can be quite strange, how some days the FTSE shows as 1%+ up yet from our perspective, nothing is happening. This nonsense occurs when the market moves within trigger levels, essentially pretending to be interesting. On Monday, the action happened between 8:09am and 9am and a trading range of 28 points.

FTSE THIS WEEK (FTSE:UKX) We should find a way of building our articles which gives folks an idea of which bit to read. Due to our habit of giving "if x then y" and "if a then b" scenario, it would be useful if we could always position each scenario in a way which told the reader what to expect.

Trends and Targets for 9/02/2018

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) It's rare for us to approach the weekend with a "thank goodness it's over" but the last week has been rather foul. We love market volatility as it makes life bearable but the FTSE has shown more movement in the last 3 weeks than it did all last year!

GSK (LSE:GSK) This week, we've been taking the easy option for 'headline' subjects by choosing shares from our email. Today, it's GSK's turn under the spotlight, a well established share currently showing some rather unexpected potentials for the future.

Trends and Targets for 7/02/2018

Versarien (LSE:VRS) & some FTSE thoughts. Obviously, we're in a bit of a tizzy with FTSE movements but thankfully there are early indications today - Wed - promises some recovery. Whether it's genuine or not remains to be seen but even above 7302 points will give some hope.

Trends and Targets for 6/02/2018

IQE (LSE:IQE) & some DOW thoughts The media will be awash with scare stories of the DOW JONES suffering its biggest drop ever, all designed to grab headlines and frankly misinform. Aug 24th, 2015 was considerably worse, -6.67% while 16,000 points, but as the DOW is now 24,000+, mislaying 1600 points in a single session was frankly careless.

FTSE THIS WEEK. (FTSE:UKX) Something quite off colour happened on Friday evening with FTSE Futures. We'd been bathing in a smug afterglow (due to our prediction on the FTSE proving pretty concise) when a loud flushing noise on the Futures market at 6:30pm scared us silly.
