IQE (LSE:IQE) & some DOW thoughts The media will be awash with scare stories of the DOW JONES suffering its biggest drop ever, all designed to grab headlines and frankly misinform. Aug 24th, 2015 was considerably worse, -6.67% while 16,000 points, but as the DOW is now 24,000+, mislaying 1600 points in a single session was frankly careless.

And 800 points were dropped in just 8 minutes of the session.

We were not entirely surprised at the miracle recovery toward 24,800 as it carried a vague promise for continued oomph to around 25,500 points. Alas, it was not to be as the miracle faded like a politicians promise, refusing to budge beyond 24,800. Perhaps tomorrow will yield a surprise...

For some reason, IQE was a share we were continually asked about during the Monday. It's 'one of ours' and quite oddly, managed to close the session at a target level we've been postulating for over a month. We're a little perturbed at the movement below 102 during the session as it hints, very dangerously, 87p should provide a bottom.

This notion worries as, especially as it risks challenging RED, the immediate uptrend. The implication, should RED break, is of further dismal travel down to 57p, rather effectively undoing all the good work of the last year.

Who knows though, perhaps the low of 89p shall prove sufficiently close to our 87p calculation to promote a bounce?

In the event of the price managing a miracle above  112p, we'd view it as beating the immediate downtrend and capable of continuing growth to 116p. Then, it becomes a matter of where the price closes as above 116p and we're expecting future recovery toward 135p.

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.
