Versarien (LSE:VRS) & some FTSE thoughts. Obviously, we're in a bit of a tizzy with FTSE movements but thankfully there are early indications today - Wed - promises some recovery. Whether it's genuine or not remains to be seen but even above 7302 points will give some hope.

The trigger level of 7302 broadly equates to that presented for the DOW yesterday though we do hope the FTSE shows more conviction for recovery than the DOW JONES. To cut to the chase, above 7302 calculates with the potential of FTSE recovery toward 7375 points fairly near term. Stop is quite ludicrous, due to recent volatility, at 7200 points. And it is worth remembering the market is trading in an overall zone where "bottom" calculates at 6,800 eventually. Though, to be honest, above 7386 tends lessen such a potential considerably.

As for Versarien, movement this year has been quite worrying, now presenting the probability of weakness below 87 driving the price down to an initial 71p, along with a short lived bounce. Secondary, if (when) 71p breaks calculates at a bottom of 47p and challenge of RED, the most recent viable uptrend.

There is, however, one important facet to this lots price movements since last November which is worth considering. The growth rate has proven extraordinary, regularly exceeding upward target levels by 50%. This is very unusual and hopefully an indicator the market has a plan for its future. It allows us to mention any miracle bounce bettering just 106p now should have an ambition of an initial 118p with secondary, if bettered, at 138p.

And then, we need to review the tea leaves again.

We suspect it shall prove worth watching if it actually does bounce at 71p as maybe, just maybe, the market is playing "hunt the gap"!

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.
