Greggs: the awesome power of a vegan butty

Recommended Posts

Apparently this is all driven by sales of a vegetarian sandwich.

Will be a good opportunity to short at some point.  :D

16 point spread on the IG platform.

Must be one of those 'too good to miss' BUYS.  The only way is up!  (Till the next flash crash stops you out and takes your money before carrying on ...)

2802 is the 161% target and might be worth a shot with a stop beneath the 100% level (2400) :)

Could be the beginning of a good short brewing if we get a daily close beneath 2402.  Going to have to redraw the Fibonacci so that it 'snaps' with the high at around 2500.

A nice little 33 - 50% correction would be awesome, if 2495 is not broken in the next few days 😎

We are girding up our loins to fight the goodly fight for a second attempt at 2500 and if we fail, could be a good time for a short with a stop just above 2500! 😺

@dmedin I know this is too late as the market is now closed but looking at your RSI indicator, this afternoon did look like a good time to short ready for next week.

It has been said that one should only use overbought readings in an uptrend as an excuse to liquidate existing long positions (take profit), not to initiate new shorts.  However ... it's also been said that big long bull markets are often followed by a 33 - 50% correction and I think Greggs is done for one of those.

So, how far will Greggs drop?

Looks like the bulls are trying get a bounce up off the recent low after the gap down around 2416 which is a 50% retracement from that last impulse move, though by the last white volume candle they are having to fight for it.

I seem to have been fortunate and caught a wave down.  There isn't much volume so it could gap up, so I've a stop near 2500.  Even a shallow retracement (23.8%) will give a REALLY nice R:R payoff.

Crikey, Greggs reports earnings next week.  Seems like just yesterday when it last reported its earnings.  I still think it's on a wave down but I should probably get out asap until after the earnings are reported.

I had to close out at a small loss, can't bear the thought of keeping a position open when earnings is released.  But hopefully it will be clear which way to go at about 9am tomorrow 🤓

but were they as good as expectations? it''s expectations that get price into the market and if the data disappoints bets come off.

Looking at the daily chart since the beginning of July, the market started to pave the way for a drop. Quite a bit of divergence in both the RSI and Stochastic. Does anyone think the gap up in May is likely to be filled in the coming months?

Still got a bit further to drop, until it realizes its 'fundamental value'?  Notice my extremely poor timing here.

I wonder how much further it has to fall.  The spread is still unusually (?) large (buy is 14 points more than sell)

I remain hopeful that it will fall further in order to 'converge' with its 200 day SMA (regression to the mean?)  At that point we will think about going long and holding 😺

 

Again my timing is pretty bad!

@dmedin don't forget the gap on the daily chart around 1804. Looks like their is a good chance it will reach that. Least I hope it does.

It's still snaking its way down.  When it bounces off (rather than breaking through) the short-term MAs then I feel better about being short; the 'proper' daily MAs still suggest it's coming down.

The daily MAs also look like the price will fall a bit more - 10 is sharply negative and 50 is flattening out.  There is a wide gap between 50 and 200.

Also: the bid/offer spread is still enormous.

For a daily chart choose a higher level pivot, the monthly here is quite interesting.

    • Everyone, it seems accepts the result of the recent  US elections, except the President and half of the GOP.  Convinced of his own meritless delusions of fraud and other voting chicanery, he now pursues a policy of obfuscation, denial of service and general spite while mad dog Giuliani and even madder Sidney Powell pursue laughable cases in various courts in the vainglorious expectation that 6 million perfectly legal votes will somehow be annulled/ cancelled and cease to  exist. This is not to be, though the only realists in the GOP are keeping their own counsel on the subject, thereby enabling the Presidents' persistent delusions. That's the problem when you believe your own propaganda, it is easy to become confused with reality. Apart from hiding rotten fish behind the radiators of the White house and carving his name on the Resolute desk, soon to be ex president Trump is doing his best to make the transition for "sleepy" Joe as difficult as he can. This includes a tacit refusal to provide more stimulus.  He has instructed Steve Munchkin to end funding for various emergency programs to the tune of $438 billion., thereby hampering the incoming Treasury secretary before he/she even walks through the door. This has rightly upset Jerome Powell who has the interest of the US economy as his overarching priority. Unfortunately, the President is unmoved by the needs of the American public as he feels they have betrayed him.  Why reward treachery? Trump is known for his heartless ardour when crushing those he deems as unworthy, which in this case is the American people as a whole, overcome as he is with nihilistic zeal.  Playing golf while ignoring a health crisis , at the same time as full denial in the face of outright defeat, does not an effective president make. Indeed, might I venture his very legacy as president and future GOP kingmaker hang very much in the balance, indeed may have been irretrievably  lost. Like Trump, lost with nowhere to go. Though he will surely be welcomed in Turkey, Russia, not to mention North Korea.  The markets really want to break higher and gap up to new ATH's but Trumps intransigence, denial (of Covid and the election results) and general spite ( no new stimulus)are causing a state of intermarket bearish divergence, with the SP and Nasdaq refusing to break into new ATHs(all time highs).  I guess we will have to wait until he is forced out come 20th Jan. 
    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
