I suspect the new chairman will talk to the investors to see if they accept the current strategy. If they think it too slow he will break the bank up, in effect forcing it back to NAV or more. The UK retail bank and Barclaycard are fine, ditto the African division. They can trade, like Lloyds, at a premium to NAV. He was extremely aggressive at Aviva and I suggest he will be here too. I think Jenkins is okay as the operator of a strategy but McFarlane/the institutions will end up demanding more speed.

Price

Barclays PLC (LON:BARC) has seen a soft start to 2015 but the bigger picture confirms to us that the upside scenario for the stock remains alive.

For us there are two support levels that are of significance - the first located at 224p and the second at 200p.

The 224p is important in that should it remain unbroken a positive case can be argued for the near-term outlook in BARC.

A break below here could well see the second support point at 200p come into play and should a break of 200p occur the prospect of a downtrend becomes alive.

Momentum indicators are positive with the RSI, MACD and MA advocating for further climbs.

The first obvious target for buyers of Barclays plc would be the 250p round level.

Oil's dramatic fall in price will have serious effects on revenues and spending in the sector, according to some industry analysts, with one investment firm predicting a sector-wide "recession" that will last for several years.

Both U.S. crude (New York Mercantile Exchange: @CL.1) and Brent (Intercontinental Exchange Europe: @LCO.1) futures fell to fresh 5½-year lows on Tuesday , with the former slipping below $49 before paring some losses.

Weak global demand and booming U.S. oil production are seen as the key reasons behind the price plunge, as well as OPEC's (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) reluctance to cut its output.

This sector slump will lead to a fight to the death for oil firms, according to analysts at Bernstein Research. The research firm likened the current environment to the Hollywood movie "The Hunger Games", which portrays a dystopian post-apocalyptic future where the main protagonists battle each other to survive.

"Our research convinces us an oil services recession is largely unavoidable at even $80 a barrel...The Hunger Games have begun," Nicholas Green, a senior analyst at the company, said in a note on Tuesday morning.

Bernstein's Green believes that offshore activity will also face a "structural recession." He predicts that there will be only half of the new work available in 2015, compared to last year, and forecasts no material recovery before 2017.

Other possible casualties of the sector's struggle for survival are the high-risk and reward exploration and oil production companies (E&P), ratings agency Moody's said Tuesday.

If oil prices average $75 a barrel in 2015, then North American E&P companies would likely reduce their capital spending by around 20 percent from last year, according to Moody's. It could even be cut by 40 percent it oil starts at below $60 a barrel, it added.

Oilfield services companies, or OFS, are companies that provide services to the E&P industry, and could face an earnings crunch of 12 percent to 17 percent if oil averages $75 a barrel in 2014, according to Moody's.

An average price below $60 a barrel in 2015 could drive earnings down by 25 to 30 percent, it added.

Meanwhile, midstream operators - which are involved in the transportation of oil - would come under significant earnings pressure if this spending is cut, according to the ratings agency. The warning adds to similar claims last year by the International Energy Agency which predicted that falling oil prices may cut investment in U.S. shale oil by 10 percent in 2015.

Oil majors have also been sounding the alarm with BP announcing a restructuring and cost-cutting program in December. Drilling further into individual stocks, Moody's said Tuesday that majors such as Shell (London Stock Exchange: RDSA-GB), BP (London Stock Exchange: BP.

Hi,

Re your earlier reply to me, sorry for tardy reply. I think I'm very even handed actually. Surely you are merely 'reaping what you sow'? Which was rather the point I was trying to make to you.
I agree that many on here have a go at you. And I see you constantly having endless digs at them. So, do you not see the common link there?
For what it's worth I have serious doubts that you actually trade. But each to his own I guess.
