Trends and Targets for 16/02/2018

Share this

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) Market performance last Friday once again confirmed why our weekly FTSE mumble is, by far and away the most read headline section, literally worldwide. As can be assumed, this is truly flattering but blooming terrifying also. Real people, real money, real responsibility!

Friday is looking mildly interesting as, while the FTSE continues not make movements of any substantial strength, there's a heck of an argument favouring movement toward a useless 7286 with anything continuing beyond 7268 points. Our secondary, if such a level is bettered, comes along at 7328 points but given the paucity of strength recently, let's just say we have our doubts - at least in a single session. If triggered, stop is pretty wide at 7202 points.

Worldwide, the recent massive swings have provoked a need for some truly ridiculous stop loss levels. This need was never more in evidence that the brief drop on the FTSE at 1.30pm on Wednesday. While there may have been a sound reason for the sharp downward spike, we were not particularly amused at how it really appeared designed to collect stop losses, prior to a rise. The movement down to 7144 really challenged our sense of humour.

The reason we're mentioning this particular blatant piece of engineering designed to harm traders is due to the current drop scenario required against the FTSE. Essentially, should the market now make it below 7144, a trip down to 7112 looks viable with secondary, if broken, at 7060. As can be seen, such an ambition breaks RED, the Brexit Vote uptrend, and will prove capable of provoking further drops. Alas, the tightest stop loss looks like 7235 points.

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.
