|About time this one was put to bed. That's the trouble with investing in Barclays. Staley promised to clear the decks of all the bad news but it still goes on
|We always tend to hold Barclays (BARC) 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 banks' comparative performance since 2009.
One 'amusing' aspect of this exercise comes from Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) (gold line on the chart), as since the market did its 1/10th trick with the share price, movements are proving volatile and useful, whereas Lloyds (LLOY) - shown in teal - are as boring as heck.
One funny aspect comes from Standard Chartered (STAN), a share which has more than doubled in price during the last year from its low of 378p. Barclays has almost doubled, RBS gained 70% and Lloyds has gone up a bit.
We've been fascinated with STAN for some time, due to it outperforming other sector members. For now, it has fallen back into line, but next time the share betters 800p we'd suspect it'll be worth close attention.
And so, Barclays remains tarred with the same brush as RBS & Lloyds, though it consistently outperforms each. The magic number for the share to now better is at 254p, something we've written about repeatedly and something the share has failed to attain.
It's fairly critical, as should Barclays manage to close above 254p, it joins STAN in the outperforming club and enters a phase where 323p becomes the next major point of interest in the longer term.
The immediate drop cycle is calculated with a bounce point around 220.75p, this being a fairly key point. The danger with any excuse to move below 220p is of coming weakness in 20p dollops.
The important 'however' is the 'red' uptrend since the Brexit vote manipulation, as this is currently at 219.414p and just a few days from coinciding with our bounce point potential.
As a result, Barclays is probably worth keeping an eye on as usually, when a software projection matches a 'red' line, a bounce is indeed justified.

|Barclays PLC (LON:BARC) (LSE:BARC.L) has a P/E of 17.8 using 2016’s EPS. In my view, this can be justified by investors because of the double-digit EPS growth forecast in FY2017 and FY2018. Barclays has a strategy which I believe could be good news for its share price. I like its continued focus on financial strength and in reorganising the bank in order to become more financially flexible in the long run. I also feel the banking sector could be undervalued, which may lift the Barclays share price in the long term.|

|Looks like bargain hunters buying from the lows of today|
|Bookbinder yes support @ 221p|
|Most of the shares that have dropped this morning have gone down 2-3% - including barc. Contrasting that to a FTSE fall of less than 1% is not an indicator of poor performance or a return to sub 200p levels. The whole market is going to be turbulent through BREXIT, and barc will not be exempt from those choppy waters. However interest rates are forecast to rise, DoJ will almost certainly settle and the FSA are drawing a line under the PPI debacle. Unless the whole market implodes or a new scandal crawls out of the woodwork then I expect barc will trend upwards for the next 24 months.|
|That it has but just expecting a couple of days of negativity so I might get lucky and squeeze a couple more pennies out of it. Can I be that lucky ?|
|U mean support!|
|It's had good resistance circa 221p|
