This is a share which generally moves with quite startling integrity. This makes our miserable forecast of weakness below 219p provoking an initial 195p with secondary, if broken, at 150p as something we distrust.
The inset on the chart shows recent share closing price behaviour against the ruling blue downtrend.
The price of Qinetiq (QQ.) only needs to close above the blue line to trash our drop calculations and it seems recent movements are tending to take this blue line into consideration.
To cut to the chase, if QinetiQ manages to close above 231p currently, we’d abandon our immediate drop thoughts and instead anticipate growth toward an initial 238p with secondary, if bettered, coming in at 253p
Perhaps this is worth keeping an eye on in the days ahead as an attempt to regain the long-term red uptrend may be coming.
