 Weekly Commentary  

The NASDAQ Composite is testing its 200 day moving average support level. Unless there is some reassuring announcement over the weekend, Monday could be 'black'.

NASDAQ Composite

Our market signals for the DJI and S&P 500 turned positive on Tuesday as our algorithm detected a bottom reversal. Due to the lag inherent in any trend reversal recognition algorithm, the trend signal has not yet reversed although it will very likely do so on Monday unless there is an (unlikely) significant bounce.

 New Features this Week Additional Value that we added this week

We have had difficulty getting reliable data, particularly volume, for the Russell 2000 futures charts and have therefore dropped the Russell 2000 from our daily and weekly analysis charts.

This Week's Top Tip Tips for getting the most out of our site

I had hoped to publish a new analysis suggested by a subscriber in this newsletter but was unable to get it completed in time. The analysis proposed was to buy MTC stocks on breakout if they were above both their 8 and 21 day exponential moving average, and the NASADQ was in an uptrend, and to sell when the 8 day ema turned down.

We should be able to complete that by next week.
