NatWest Group Share Price May Fall Below 200p – Here’s Why

NatWest Group (LON: NWG) share price is giving a lot of bearish signals ahead of its earnings release. The British banking giant is set to release its financial results for Q2 2023 on Friday. The technical analysis predicts more downside for the stock.

The FTSE 100 index gained 12 points on Thursday as the energy stocks extended their gains. However, the rest of the market gave mixed signals as the bank shares tumbled. NatWest shares were also down 0.99% till press time.

Why Is NatWest Stock Falling?

The negative price action by the shares of NatWest Group can be attributed to the Farage ‘debunking’ scandal. The bank’s Chief Executive Alison Rose has stepped down this week after admitting her role in the whole controversy. The group’s chairman Sir Howard Davies is also under pressure to resign.

NatWest share price is experiencing high volatility ahead of tomorrow’s release of its H1 financial results. If the results fail to satisfy the investors, the sell-off may get intensified. Another reason behind the bearish sentiment on bank shares is the recently released financial results from Barclays. In its latest results, the bank revealed a significant decrease in revenue while also downgrading its margin outlook.

NatWest Share Price Forecast – August 2023

The upcoming earnings will be a key event affecting LON: NWG price action. The technical analysis reveals that the shares have confirmed the breakdown from the upward trendline. The first downside target for the bears seems to be the June low of 226p.

Considering the high timeframe analysis of the chart, NatWest Group share price forecast is not looking very bullish. If the bank earnings keep disappointing the investors, a move below 200p is a real possibility in the coming months.
