summarizes the breakout events of the week and provides additional guidance

The major indexes closed higher for the week but gains for the NASDAQ were curtailed by three consecutive days of losses leading to Friday's close. The index pulled back from its upper trend line on Thursday and it appears we are in for a few days of consolidation. Next week is a short week due to Good Friday so volumes may be lower causing prices to drift a little lower.
This week's downward revision to fourth quarter GDP indicates that the recovery is even more anemic than it appears. This could lead to disappointing employment figures next week from the ADP private sector employment report on Wednesday which would add to the pullback momentum.
The number of breakouts improved slightly to 24 this week, all from a cup-with-handle pattern except one high-tight-flag and one flat base. Five stocks met our target criteria of a high RS Rank and strong recent earnings: DAN, LVS, CVGI, JBL and KID.

|This Week's Top Tip||Tips for getting the most out of our site|
We are always pleased to hear from or meet our subscribers and this week I met with a long term subscriber vacationing on Maui.
My first question always is 'Since you have been with us for many years, you must find the site valuable so how do you use it?. In this case, the answer was to cross-check our rankings against other sources and if there was agreement, then to consider buying after a confirmed breakout.
This subscriber was unaware of our Personal Watchlist feature so for his benefit, and for others who may do something similar, there's a recap of that feature below. But instead of reading the text, why not watch a video tutorial? (This is the first time we've done this so excuse me if it's somewhat amateurish).
The Personal Watchlist (PWL) is a means to input stock ideas from multiple sources to determine if any of those many ideas are near a buy price as determined by our CANTATA methodology. Then you can choose to send an alert for the identified stocks on your lists.
Note that email alerts for PWL's are locked at 9:29AM EST for that day. Changes to your PWL's are possible while the market is open and will show up on the alert monitor page, but email alerts are locked in.
The PWL is designed to allow you to create or cut and paste a list of up to 500 stock symbols into each PWL. There are four PWL’s for a total of 2,000 stock symbols. Not that you would normally use that many but, for example, you could add one stock daily for over one year from a daily stock idea source.
Each stock list can be from a different source that you subscribe or read about in an article, or hear about from your stock investors’ group. Even stock ideas from business television programs can be put into a list for comparison with breakoutwatch.com’s stock timing and alert service.
You can select a column from a spreadsheet or a postscript (pdf) file or a Notepad file and copy/cut and then paste into the box for the selected PWL.
To cut and paste from a column of stock symbols in a postscript (pdf) file into the PWL.
1. Open the pdf file page with an Adobe Reader.
Four PWL’s are the maximum at any one time. If you want to add an additional list, you must first select and delete a PWL you no longer need. You can combine many lists into one list of 500 stock symbols if you choose.
Now you can compare the PWL with the latest breakoutwatch.com chart patterns.
Under “Compare BoW watchlists” is a list and selection arrow. Select the pattern you are most interested and a table will appear showing which stock symbols on your PWL’s matches that pattern. Also listed is the number of occurrences that symbol appears in your PWL’s and the BoW watch list.
By doing this you can now identify which stocks meet your fundamental requirements and breakoutwatch.com’s technical and timing requirements.
You can change your PWL email alert preferences under the Take Action - Alerts > Alert Preferences menu choice.
You can change your email address for alerts under “Account Management” and “Update Account” tabs on the left side of any of our site pages.
