Trends and Targets for 1/09/2017

Share this

FTSE FOR FRIDAY and BMR GROUP (FTSE:UKX & LSE:BMR) Sometimes, we see a share behaving strangely and feel the need to say something, if it's one we know but don't cover on a daily basis for clients. On Thursday 31st Aug, BMR did something stupid, so we looked at moves from 8am until 11.30 then Tweeted about the potentials of 6p appearing, perhaps even 7.25p. Once suspension was lifted, it shot up to 6.5p before being murdered!

The unpleasant inset on the chart below illustrates our dismay. Despite a stonking surge to 6.5p, considerable care was taken to ensure the share price actually CLOSED the session below the uptrend since the start of 2016. This particular uptrend does appear important, given the circled movement at the end of June when the share was forced below the trend. It's almost like someone doesn't actually want the price to go up just yet as it closed the session at 3.75, indicating anything continuing below 3.75 should find 3.25p hopefully coated with trampoline juice.

Any bounce now continuing above 6.15p looks capable of 7.15p next with secondary coming in at 9.375p. Fingers crossed time, as usual!

FTSE FOR FRIDAY  Our comments about a 'surprise' recovery at the start of September looks close to fruition. Perhaps we saw this on Thursday (usually a negative day on the FTSE) with the market appearing quite uppity. This situation now expects anything near term above 7444 to continue to an initial 7472 points with secondary, if bettered, at 7545 points. Recent behaviour has tended legislate against 100 point days on the FTSE but who knows, a new month, new optimism, and all of the USA are fully employed building an Ark apparently.

If triggered, the FTSE needs below 7416 to cancel any immediate optimism, a dangerously tight stop loss when viewed against a 100 point potential. If we attribute our lower low laws, the stop should really be 7364 points!

So what happens if 7364 is broken?

Initial weakness to 7314 looks about right. Secondary comes in at 7255 points. If triggered, stop can be at 7381 points, again surprisingly tight!

Have a good weekend.

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.
