And the second is RBS.

Has three times faltered approaching 1800 and has slid back fast over the last few days. Another weak looking chart?

good trading

RBS is becoming quite tradeable again. 1620 area seems to be providing reasonable support for now off the DT at 1780. Next supprt level is 1550. Given the recent falls it is likley to bounce first from here I think. Indicators would suggest that we will go up at the start of the week ( 18/08 ). 1660 would be my first target. The one problem I see creeping in is how high the FTSE will go before it has a retrace. Have been trading it again recently and will do this week as well.

yes, I agree- been long since third failed attempt to close the
10/11 June gap (1620 and didn't regard Thursday 1619 as a
penetration). Looking for 1690 but will run if there's a close
below 1615 ( assuming there's no sharp intraday down
that exits me before that)

Well it was damn stuborn today. Got up quickly, early in the session, almost hit 1660. Thereafter it faded and seemed to go against every ftse move that happened. For the first time in a while I walked away with a loss today :(

yes, another weak looking bank chart imo. At current level,
729, it's sitting on fib 60% so it might bounce, but I wouldn't
bank on it.

Hi money

all the big banks took something of a hit today with HSBC and
RBS the worst.

Looks pretty weak to me now 1620 has gone (tho' it's only one
day) unless it jumps back quickly. If not, can't see much support
on the chart 'til around 1550/1520. Don't know if your trade is
long, medium or short term. Expect you'll be watching it very
closely if it's short term.

Very difficult to trade RBS when the markets are near static. Very frustrating. Wll just have to leave it for now as the risk is not worth the return. For anyone long from 1580 ish I would expect abounce of sorts on Thursday. US not ready to collapse just yet and FTSE likely to be pulled up by the fact that US markets appear to want higher in the short term.

I notice RBOS has tested the support at 1520 and bounced up off this on Fri 5th Sept.
I have been looking at RBOS with a view to going long on Dec futures and would be interested to see your views on this.

Probably a bit late now, but I've been away.

The bounce was a hopeful sign near a support area - with the
May low @ 1516 and fib 50 support @ around 1510 (almost co-
incident with the double top target measure of around 1504).

However, I won't be convinced the intermediate down trend has
changed until there's a significant move above 1612 which I have
as a swing reaction high on 8 May (followed idc by a move
beyond fib 50 resistance @ around 1660 - by which time your
long will have made a few bob of course!!!)

My system gives me a short signal if there's a close below 8 May
low 1570 (assuming it stays below 1612) but I doubt I'll trade it
because it's a bit close to the support area for comfort.

All imo of course. All the fancy analysis in the world won't impress
the market - it'll go where it will, with us (hopefully) hanging on
its coat tails.

Thanks for that Jon,I am still looking to go long for a quick profit.
Will wait a little longer to see if it continues with the short term up trend and will keep in mind the 1612 point.

Regards.
