Trends and Targets for 23/05/2017

Share this

GAME DIGITAL (LSE:GMD) & #Nutters Hashtag Nutters is a reference to ourselves and a favourite area of irritation. The "Alphabet Game" which the stock market often indulges; earlier alphabet entries being more active, has once again made itself known. In shares we monitor, 131 "A-M" shares feature against just 81 "N-Z" stocks so far in May. The conclusion remains, if you want a faster mover then look at the first half of the alphabet.

GAME DIGITAL (LSE:GMD) has experienced a pretty torrid time over the last few years, proving an early entry in the alphabet does NOT mean fast growth, just faster movement regardless of direction! The situation now is a bit fragrant as the price dare not - from our perspective - close below 40p as it tends make travel to 20p almost inevitable. Perhaps of greater concern is we cannot calculate a secondary without using minus signs. The conclusion therefore is should this appear at 20p, some sort of punt is possible in the hope of a bounce but it's dangerous.

Some slight hope can be taken from BLUE on the chart as, despite the share price sleep walking through the trend, it has only experienced a 6p range in the period since. Perhaps BLUE will prove to be valid as anything now above 47p should provide an initial 53p with secondary, if bettered, at a longer term 61p. As always, there's a necessary limit to our optimism as the price ideally needs an excuse to better the prior bonk against the trend at 69p before we'll gush enthusiastically about its future.

For now, about the nicest we dare suggest comes from movements through most of January where a glass ceiling was poured at 60p. Perhaps closure above this level will prove an early harbinger of good times ahead.

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.
