Trends and Targets for 3/11/2017

Share this

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) We always joke about our Friday FTSE report being world famous, literally due to website visitors from all over the world taking this specific report. Hopefully accuracy for a near term punt also has something to do with it!

From the point at which the index closed Thursday (7556 points), we're tending view 7584 points as presenting a fairly reasonable target. Secondary, if bettered, comes along at 7606 points. Unfortunately, the tightest available sane stop looks like 7509 points which is a bit wide when viewing the Risk / Reward for a near term trade. Part of the reason for this width comes from the playground the FTSE is about to enter. Had the index closed just two points higher, we'd be adjusting that secondary upwards, perhaps by 70 points.

Complicating things has been FTSE Futures during the evening of 2nd November. Futures reached a high of 7570 points, this often indicating the market will probably open UP for the day - potentially as high as 7570. Our rule of thumb is, should the FTSE spike UP at the open, unless this spike bettered within the first 90 minutes, expect a rewind day.

However, in keeping with a craven need to produce more "rules", if the index actually opens above 7570, this will indicate strength beyond near term influences and therefore, even if it does rewind, it'll probably go higher later in the session.

Confused? Try being us while BoE play with interest rate announcements.


As the chart below shows, the FTSE has NOT yet closed above 7556 and created a new "ALL TIME HIGH". While we harbour a suspicion the index intends further upward movement during November / December, we'd be remiss not covering our arse by viewing drop scenario.

If 7509 indeed breaks, weakness toward an initial 7480 looks about right. Secondary, if broken, comes in at 7450 points. Should this scenario trigger, stop can be comfortably tight at 7525 points though, in reality, it's possible 7514 will suffice.

Have a good weekend. It certainly feels the FTSE intends experience a reasonable Friday. Hopefully nothing occurs overnight to spoil our optimism for the day 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.
