NatWest rally may have further to run

Already up 25% in 2024 so far, there are further encouraging signs at the high street lender after the shares closed above independent analyst Alistair Strang's initial target price.

NatWest Group (LSE:NWG)'s share price recently visited 278p, the initial target from our analysis three weeks ago and it still looks dangerously encouraging and, judging by some big picture moves, things could be interesting.

Optimism remains present due to the price managing to actually close (very slightly) above our 278p target level on four occasions.  It’s now the case where above 281p calculates as capable of an initial 295p with our secondary, if bettered, now working out at a game changing 315p

Share price closure around the 315p level shall prove to be critical for the longer term due to Big Picture calculations entering the picture.  To cut a long and boring story short, we shall be forced to regard a long-term 465p as exerting a magnetic attraction for the future.

If things intend to go wrong, below 237p shall be viewed as troublesome, suggesting coming reversal to 218p with our secondary, if broken, a hopeful bottom at 197p.
