Trends and Targets for 8/09/2017

Share this

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) As with hurricanes, sometimes an occasional satellite photo of the markets isn't a bad idea and in the case of the FTSE, it also provides one of our rare  "print it out and stick it on the wall" comments. In addition, the second chart below is especially curious when viewed against its 21 year old parent.

Firstly, there's something important about The Big Picture. It tells us, once again, should the FTSE now trade above the 7,600 point mark, it enters a cycle to 7,900 next. Secondary comes in at a very probable 8,700 points. Additionally, amazingly and even astoundingly, our software advises if the movement triggers then no stop is required!

This particular proposal is given as a result of just two criteria. Either the stop should be as tight as heck OR the width of a required stop is too stupid to suggest. When this sort of nonsense crops up, here's a reasonable rule of thumb; if the movement triggers, stick in a stop loss just below the prior days lowest level. Or accept your trading software' default and crucially, go do something else for a while and stop paying attention to the markets.

For now though, it's quite curious how market conditions in the last few weeks tend mimic the FTSE big picture. It's certainly something we don't recall seeing previously and if this microcosm of the Big Picture behaves the same way, allegedly the FTSE is about to experience a near term boost. If this is the case, here's the key numbers.

Near term, should the FTSE better 7414, it enters a position where we're looking for some growth to 7465 points initially. Our secondary, if such a level is bettered, comes in at 7550 points. About the sanest stop appears to be 7350 though, if we resort to drawing lines, there's a suggestion a stop could be placed at 7399 points.

Have a good weekend.

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.
