SPORTS DIRECT (LSE:SPD) Mr Ashley appears anointed with similar levels of adulation the media reserve for Mr Trump, Mr Corbyn, Brexit voters, or the Scottish Govt. It creates a situation where we tend filter out "white noise" styles of opinion masquerading as reporting. His appearance in the news this week demanded a further look at the company share price potentials tho' as there's always a risk the people crying wolf will finally be right about something.

Perhaps not this time.

Sports Direct share price has been essentially flatlining for a while, keeping us muted on future potentials. We can isolate a few trend lines which, if exceeded, will tend signal the direction the market intends take the share.

First, along the bottom of the chart is a discreet RED line. As is our preference, we've started this line from the most recent point of market manipulation (gap circled) as it indicates clearly SPD needs below 280p currently to justify the purchase of running shoes. After all, the share price has respected this trend with amazing clarity and it results in the situation where we need consider weakness below 280 driving the price to 240p initially with secondary, if broken, at 209p.

It's worth remembering we're not the only folk able to wield a RED crayon. When we witness such a neatly defined uptrend, we harbour an expectation the market will exhibit a fake drop prior to any rise and it provokes the conclusion we'd need see Sports Direct below 260p - the low following the start of the trend - before we'd dare assume any weakness below RED is actually valid. The market is perfectly capable of throwing a scare into people prior to any rise, something worth remembering.

After all, who'd complain at picking up some cheap shares due to a fake drop?

Identifying a rise is somewhat harder as we've a plethora of trends to select.

The most obvious - Dark Blue - currently demands SPD better 304.25p before any rise is considered serious. The more likely, Dashed Blue, suggests the price requires above 318p currently and the Light Blue one hints 333p is the key number to be bettered. This nonsense creates a cascade of reasons for taking a blooming hard look at near term potentials. Firstly, the most obvious signal should be movement above 301.5 as this is supposed to generate growth to 320p initially. At this point, it all gets a bit interesting as we'd require the share price to actually CLOSE a session above Dashed Blue prior to showing enthusiasm for the future. If it does, we're calculating a visit toward 365p further in the future.

With a movement like this, we can start speculation of some real price recovery as it becomes fairly easy to view 600p as presenting a seriously longer term attraction.

But for now, it's stuffed, tying itself in knots on a straight line. And do remember our warning about a probable fake droop prior to any growth.

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.
