HURRICANE ENERGY (LSE:HUR)  It's truly unusual for May to do something without reaching the inevitable conclusion the UK PM has, once again, embraced "silly". But in the case of Hurricane, May certainly has a lot to answer for and the very deliberate decline in the share price bothers us rather a lot. Apparently the magic number is currently 32.925p.

When we view the somewhat artificial decline since May, the share price requires exceed 32.925p to exceed BLUE and hopefully suggest it's ceased dropping. Alas, we're not terribly comfortable with this calculation as the FOUR price moves which define BLUE tend come with the threat of the market having a cunning plan, proving single minded in their devotion.

Or to cut through the flowery language, it looks like the sods want the price to hit 25p, maybe even 20p if "they" intend playing games with the folk who jump in with the assumption the circled gap will provoke a bounce.

If this is indeed the markets secret plan, we'd tend distrust any break of BLUE as it's liable to prove short lived.

While perhaps it may appear absurd we apply such larcenous notions, the illusion of a stock market driven by Malthus theory of Supply & Demand has long vanished, along with any residual respect for a certain Economics lecturer! (Clue: he also believed in Moving Averages as a reliable trend indicator...)

So, what happens if BLUE - currently 32.925 - is bettered. In theory this should generate growth toward 36p initially and while a 3p rise isn't of particular interest, in the event 36p is bettered we'd tend anticipate 39 fairly soon thereafter. Our logic runs along the lines should 36p be exceeded, it ticks the first box to confirm bottom is "in". This being the case, beyond 39p is a visually pleasing jump to 47p.

Oh, and if it breaks 20p, it's stuffed and risks 10p.

Please remember, all prices are mid-price (halfway between the Buy and Sell). When we refer to a price CLOSING above a specific level, we are viewing the point where we can regard a trend as changing. Otherwise, we are simply speculating on near term trading targets. Our website is

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.
