BARCLAYS BANK (LSE:BARC) We always tend hold Barclays in slightly less contempt than the other two retail banks, simply due to the strength with which it recovered from the shambles back in 2009. Alas, as history shows, "how little did we know..." For a giggle, we've given two charts below, one showing BARCLAYS in recent times, another with a bunch of overlays featuring other bank' comparative performance since 2009.

LLOYDS BANK (LSE:LLOY) Whatever provoked the misery in market fortunes during the FTSE afternoon session was a bit weird. Generally, when this sort of nonsense happens, we experience a raft of shares with drop triggers being hit. But it didn't happen so therefore, we smell rodent. Even the retail banks, always the first to mimic a Champions League footballer being assaulted by an aggressive buttercup, avoided flinging themselves off a cliff.

Royal Bank of Scotland (LSE:RBS) It's easy to dislike banking shares at present. Everything is in hiatus, feeling like there's a major news event about to happen. Maybe Australia and New Zealand will finally sort out which has the worst accent? We last viewed RBS at the end of last month (link here) and frankly, very little has changed.

FTSE FOR THE WEEK (FTSE:UKX) It gets boring writing about the doomsayers always being proven wrong by the UK market but apparently we continue to go to "hell in a handcart" while the index' continues to sing from a different songbook. The odd thing, a disturbing number of FTSE 100 components should be going up but are failing to do so and worse, some seem intent on Lemming behaviour.

FTSE FOR FRIDAY (FTSE:UKX) The UK market continues to befuddle the 'experts', all of whom know BREXIT, TRUMP and the SCOTLAND thing are really trashing the markets and believe the markets only paint new highs out of spite. It's really quite odd, though nothing like as odd as the price of BRENT Crude. This product is behaving really oddly but below 51.125 would doubtless now present a sensible short entry with a tight stop.
