 Weekly Commentary  

The NASDAQ Composite continues to roar ahead, easily outrunning the other two major indexes. This is good news because most successful breakouts come from stocks listed on the NASDAQ exchange.  The chart shows the index tracking the upper Bollinger Band and we know from experience that that can go on for some time, although eventually the index will consolidate. The consolidation may just around the corner. I've added the money flow index to the chart this week because it is showing an overbought condition. That too, can continue but it indicates you should be watching our trend indicators and not opening any new positions if they turn downwards.

NASDAQ Composite

There were an above average number of breakouts this week with 3 making intraday gains of over 10% and 9 making intraday gains of over 5%. Most breakouts came from the cup-with-handle pattern.
