Trends and Targets for 11/09/2017

FTSE FOR THE WEEK (FTSE:UKX) A sneaking suspicion the FTSE has been reacting to the US Hurricane business makes us wonder whether any one the US fruitcake element will prove successful is blowing, shooting, praying, or looting the storm away. Watching CNN news, the excitement was palpable when a wheelie bin blew over in Miami 10 hours before the storm made landfall. FTSE behaviour reminds of the old adage, when the US catches cold, the UK develops pneumonia.

If this indeed is the case, the coming week is liable to be trashed by a UK market rushing to the emergency department but to be realistic, we'd refrain from panic unless the FTSE finds sufficient excuse to slither below 7300 points. In fact, if looking for early warning of coming troubles, even below 7350 permits a raised eyebrow. We've some doubts as to whether any storm effects actually shall stick, mainly thanks to so called 'social media' and its ability to illustrate reality despite an entire world media becoming excited due to a Miami wheelie bin falling over in the early hours of Sunday morning, long before the hurricane actually arrived.

So, if the market is in trouble, below 7350 gives early warning whereas if it's all probable fakery but above 7388 gives an early clue of media hysterics being ignored. The interesting aspect is the proximity of both numbers, essentially suggesting the market doesn't have a clue what to do.

Our own thinking is to resort to looking at recent lows as they suggest should the future break below 7300, a drop toward 7250 now makes sense with secondary 7183. And this, unfortunately, takes the index into the realms of lower lows with 7020 proving to be the ruling attraction.

Equally, if we look for "higher highs", while above 7388 gives some hope for an upward break, we'd prefer waiting see the FTSE better 7440 as 7525 looks about right with secondary 7600 points. And as mentioned on Friday, above 7600 represents a game changer for the FTSE with 7,900 possible with secondary, if bettered, at a long term 8,700.

And if you think this means you can go long at 7,388 with a target of 8,700 and a stop just below 7,350... you're on your own. Sometimes we don't take numbers too seriously. And sometimes we regret this flippant attitude.

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.
