FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX)  Thursday proved rather indecisive on the FTSE. At lunchtime, we issued a report which laid out criteria for a drop on the market but some sort of sixth sense kicked in at the last moment. A shorthand note to clients warned should the FTSE better 7331 points, it felt like movement toward 7353 was pre-ordained. To our surprise, the index tripped the scenario and surged to 7354 points.

We're not happy, nor convinced.

This unusual client alert was issued as we were attempting "prove" the day low of 7303 was actually bottom. Depending on how our 7353 target was bettered, it would give ample ammunition to provide future upward predictions. Bettering our target by a single point was less than useful. Here's the problem - moves in the last week have failed introduce encouragement for any surprise upward surge as we're naively hoping to see the index better 7600. Instead, by closing Thursday at 7337 points out the FTSE is trading in a region where anything now below 7300 should provoke an initial 7269 points with secondary, if (when) broken at 7159 points. In theory, if the drop triggers, the market requires better 7354 points to squash the immediate drop potential. This, unfortunately, is the tightest stop loss level. The ideal stop loss would be placed just above a ridiculous sounding 7483 points.

There's a couple of small caveats making us nervous at proposing a full flavoured drop. Currently, apparently the top 20 world leaders are fighting the public around a Hamburger van somewhere in Germany and generally markets hop on the spot during these events. Fans of double bottoms will be eagerly viewing the FTSE as the index has painted 7300 twice recently, needing only above 7387 to make their dreams come true. Private clients are aware we've a slightly different trigger level as we tend prefer that exotic moment when our software stops reporting 2+2=4 but instead reports 4 is now greater than 2+2. However, it certainly appears anything now above 7387 theoretically will prove capable of 7451 next. If bettered, the longer term secondary calculates at 7590 points. And if triggered, stop can be just below 7353 at tightest although 7300 makes an uncomfortable load of sense.

Hopefully the G20 leaders succeed in getting better hamburgers than those usually available at roadside vans. We used to rate them in minutes with a particularly interesting one near Glencoe, Scotland, rated at just 45 minutes. This was the length of time it took to find a toilet following buying one of their offerings. The nearest town, alas, was Fort William which took 50 minutes of blind panic driving...

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. 'CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.

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.
