Barclays Share Price Forecast: This Could Be The Last Chance For The Bulls
Barclays (LON: BARC) share price is knocking at a critical resistance and a rejection may lead to lower price levels in the coming days and weeks. This is the 142p resistance level which was previously a strong support level.
The shares of the British financial giant closed at 140.2p on Monday as the FTSE 100 index reflected a bearish sentiment in the market. The benchmark index in itself is at a key breakout point and is awaiting some bullish momentum.
Technical analysis of LON: BARC validates this cautious outlook as the price can be seen struggling to break above the above-mentioned resistance level. However, a breakout above this level might throw all the bearish theses out of the window.
