Trends and Targets for 22/12/2017

THE GRAND TOUR (EX:BBC) & SPAIN For some reason, doubtless related to the immediate prospect of grandchildren arriving for the next weeks, Jeremy Clarkson's latest episode of Grand Tour superseded the usual Thursday night flip flop through the Asian markets. Some say, it was more interesting.

Trends and Targets for 21/12/2017

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (ish) (FTSE:UKX) Past experience has taught, doing a "FTSE for..." when the day is Xmas eve will be an exercise in futility. Normally, the holiday morning spends the session doing nothing until the final few minutes, then the FTSE will make a movement. Usually the one it should make the previous day!

Trends and Targets for 20/12/2017

BARCLAYS BANK (LSE:BARC) A day spent, applying nail varnish, tends explain the ridiculous sums people spend in "Nail Bars". It all started when a favourite keyboard began needing healthy thumps to make the space bar work, along with someone noticing only the 'F' & 'Q' keys were actually visible.

Trends and Targets for 19/12/2017

The Royal Bank of Scotland (LSE:RBS) It's time for our monthly moan about RBS, the bank that likes to say "doh". Oddly though, for four days earlier this month, the company share price actually managed to close a session above the trend since 2008 - currently 279.25p. Usually this is something giving some hope, suggesting a downtrend which can be bettered.

Trends and Targets for 15/12/2017

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) Sometimes we wonder at our logic. For instance, the FTSE is now regarded as probably going up but from the point at which it closed Thursday, it'll probably go down a bit first. Closing the day at 7448 points, we'll not be aghast to witness weakness toward 7431 points, then a bounce.

Lloyds Bank (LSE:LLOY) It's time for our monthly visit to Lloyds where we shuffle words around to try disguise the fact we're saying the same thing we've said for the last few months. Oddly though, this time we are saying it with a vague expectation something is about to happen.

CARD FACTORY - again (LSE:CARD) When we gave this as one of our ISA shares for 2017 (link here) the share price has performed in a fashion which makes the UK Brexit bloke seem sensible. It went up, it met our targets, it collapsed. But thankfully, with nothing close to our expectations.

Trends and Targets for 12/12/2017

MARSTONS PLC (LSE:MARS) The current meteor shower (think it is The Haemorrhoids) reminded just how bright Mars shines in the current dark winter sky. It also served to remind us to update our outlook against Marstons share price as we last glanced at them in early 2015

Trends and Targets for 11/12/2017

FTSE this week (FTSE:UKX) & GBP EUR In common with, we suspect, most of the UK, we've some doubts as to the integrity of any vaunted agreement between our esteemed leaders and the European mob. However, currency markets appear on the verge of taking it seriously.
