Special Market Rally Pricing Until July 31 - see below
Our equivolume charts provide an excellent visual summary of the state of the major indexes. Published daily in our Market Analysis section they convey at a glance the action for the day and the recent progress of the indexes. Learn more about equivolume charts here.
Our equivolume chart for the NASDAQ over the last 20 sessions shows clearly that more money is coming into the market from the sidelines and driving prices higher. The index closed higher on twelve consecutive days from July 9 until Thursday with seven of those days being accumulation days. (An accumulation day occurs when the volume exceeds that of the previous day). The price rises when demand exceeds supply so we can see from the width of the bars that demand is increasing each day. This can only happen if money is being redistributed from other sources into the market.
After such strong gains, it was not surprising that the index faltered slightly on Friday on profit taking but the white box on the chart shows that the index recovered almost all of its early losses. This shows traders and investors still found value in the shares comprising the index.

|Tips for getting the most out of our site
Using The Sell Assistant
The Sell Assistant uses our Sell Model (see Sell Model Methodology) to determine if it thinks it is time to sell yet. By completing the form below and clicking the 'What's Your Opinion' button, we will produce a chart of the stock and if the Sell model thinks you should have sold it already, it will annotate the chart with the sell signal date and calculate a return based on the next day's opening price. Note that the Sell Assistant does not use a stop loss figure, but relies on its internal model to determine when to issue a sell signal. The Sell Assistant can be used for any stock, although it is only useful on stocks that were in a confirmed uptrend on the date of purchase.
If the Sell Model does not find a sell signal, you can click the 'Create Sell Alert' button and create a sell alert. You now have several options:
Use of the Sell Assistant is now available to all Platinum subscribers.
