Trends and Targets for 13/03/2018

Share this

ASCENT RESOURCES (LSE:AST) To judge by emails, it appears a few folk are keeping a weather eye on this lot. Our most recent analysis (link here) had suggested it would probably find its way to 0.91p. As it's now trading at the 1p, it's certainly within a nod and a wink of target.

As always, there's a problem!

Will the sodding share bounce? We've a fairly big issue should the price make it below 0.91 as theoretically it enters a region where drop targets are prefaced with minus signs. In a normal world, we certainly would anticipate a bounce, ideally just before the 0.91 level is reached and in plain English, this means anytime soon.

Before expanding on bounce potentials, there's a little nasty the marketplace has proven capable of playing. Should the share price be gapped (aka manipulated) below 0.91p at the open, any inclination of a share price jump would tend vanish, for now anyway. A price shuffle such as this simply will suggest the market isn't ready to let it run free and equally, our calculations which provoke minus signs are complete tosh.

For now, any bounce exceeding 1.25p is liable to be serious, essentially lighting the fuse for some growth to 1.6p. Better still, in the event 1.6p is bettered, a longer term (or within a day or two) 2p becomes available.

Of course, it's worth remembering common sense and the adage about falling knives. A bounce is NEVER guaranteed.

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.
