Trends and Targets for 4/09/2017

Share this

FTSE FOR THE COMING WEEK (FTSE:UKX) The current 'Korea Thing' reminds of the John Wyndham's (the Day of the Triffids bloke) book, the Kraken Wakes. It's a usual 'The Worlds Ending' short story and in it, the two hero's discuss which shares they've bought due to sea shipping lanes closing. Both had gone for airline stocks and now, we wonder if the building sector will face a surge! Even though the world is ending apparently.

The FTSE certainly completed August with some reasonable potentials for the future as movements now above 7460 signal continued traffic toward an initial 7528 points with secondary coming in at a thermonuclear 7,600 points. The BLUE line on the chart coincides with 7528 later this week...

We've a bit of an issue with the 7,600 ambition as once the FTSE starts bettering this point, a further 200+ point surge becomes very available. However, it certainly appears any bonk against the 7,600 level is liable to provoke a stutter, if only due to the challenge facing a market attempting to beat the June high. And this, despite us facing financial ruin due to avaricious Europeans and physical ruin due to North Korea.

This is why we tend ignore the news. According to UK headlines, we should all be digging holes and puling it in over ourselves!

There's a slight issue with current growth potentials, due to the immediate growth curve. It's essentially too steep and presents the situation where the FTSE needs slip below RED - currently 7296, before becoming worried about upward travel. As this presents an unpleasantly near 150 point stop loss width, it's not entirely useful.

But what happens if 7296 now breaks?

Initially, we calculate weakness now toward 7175 but should such a level break with any substance, it seems 7025 comes in as a bottom where a bounce can be hoped. But "normal" rules say the market is going to 7,600 as top on the current cycle.

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.
