Trends and Targets for 14/09/2017

Share this

Royal Dutch Shell (LSE:RDSB) By bettering 55 USD (marginally), there's a theory Brent Crude has enabled a game changing movement and is supposed to be on a cycle to 60 USD next with secondary, if bettered, at 71 USD. Of course, how much of this is due to hysteria over recent storms or the usual winter fakery remains to be seen! Perhaps we're placing undue credit on a day high of 55.20, especially as Brent Futures only reached 55.065...

Sometimes, when the Futures market is outstripped by the real market, it can be wise not to fire off party poppers. However, it certainly gives an excuse for an updated look at one of the oil majors, so we've selected Royal Dutch Shell as the test case.

Currently trading around 2192p, the immediate situation suggests any growth bettering just 2207 commences a cycle toward an initial 2339p. Visually, this even makes some sense, suggesting a challenge against BLUE on the chart, the downtrend for the last three years. While secondary, if bettered, calculates around the 2600p level, there's a fly in the ointment at the very deliberate refusal to permit the price above 2400p. In keeping with the law of Higher Highs, it makes a massive degree of sense to wait the share price actually closing above 2400p before making too many plans for a rosy future where we get to mention 3000p.

As Red on the chart signals, there's been quite an impressive degree of respect paid to the uptrend and it currently demands the share price break 2120 before rushing off to change underwear as this would tick the first box for reversal toward the 2000p level, perhaps even 1745p if negative news is involved.

For now, we tend regard it as heading to 2339p.

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.
