FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) As feared, our 100% success rate fell apart last Friday when the expected FTSE scenario didn't even happen. At least this should not have caused any friendly fire incidents but it does worry us, due to potentials being shown from Friday 2nd!

There are quite a few arguments favouring some sort of coming bounce, not least being the number of "our" shares getting very close to drop trigger levels. Invariably these trigger levels, when they start to appear in mobs, become points at which a bounce can be expected and equally inevitable is the effect on the overall market should a bounce be genuine.

Last Friday, in what was supposed to be a near term commentary, we mentioned the dangers should 7575 break as a dribble downward toward 7450 makes sense. It was to take until Wednesday evening futures before 7575 was damaged and now, the immediate situation is of weakness below 7476 still suggesting 7450 as a point where a bounce makes sense. A break of 7450 looks capable of bringing fire and pestilence, along with 7430 points. Such has been the pace of decline since January 30th it appears a stop can be placed at 7520 points.

What happens if the market oozes up above 7520 points? (the dashed line on the chart)

We're looking for growth commencing toward 7556 points initially. Secondary, if bettered, comes in at 7613 points, unlikely unless China decided to keep PM May or the US Non Farm Payrolls "guesstimate" numbers surprise everyone.  Or perhaps more probable, GBPUSD makes an expected surge toward 1.45

There is something a little odd about our 7613 ambition as it donks against the solid blue downtrend, almost certain to provoke some hiccups.

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.
