 Weekly Commentary  

The shortened trading week saw volumes fall and consequently the number of breakouts also, as significantly increased volume is a pre-requisite for a confirmed breakout. Despite the lower volume, the NASDAQ made a very health 1.7% gain for the week in anticipation of on-line retailers making increased holiday sales.


November was a particularly strong month for breakouts from our cup-with-handle list with three stocks making over 50% gains.
  • ONVO broke out on Nov. 6 and hit an intraday high 77% above its breakout price 12 days later. Profit taking followed but the stock is still up 15%
  • GNE broke out on 11/15 and hit an intraday high 51% above the BoP. It is still showing a 46% profit.
  • We mentioned UVE last week which hit a 50% intraday gain on Friday

There were many more strong breakouts during November. You can always see a list of breakouts in the last 90 days at menu choice Monitor > Recent Breakouts.

We hope you are enjoying a safe holiday weekend and are duly giving thanks for the goodies we brought you during November ;)
