 Weekly Commentary  

The NASDAQ continued its rise this week and is positive for the year while the two other major indexes slip behind. I've added the Keltner Channel to this week's chart because it is notable how well the index has respected the channel's  lower bound, and coincidentally the 50 day moving average, while the upper bound of the channel has been a good  predictor of an overbought condition. On this evidence, we can expect a few days of consolidation before the upward trend continues.


I'm spending the weekend in Hana with the family so the newsletter is very short this week. I'll return with more developments on the squeeze indicator next week.
 New Features this Week Additional Value that we added this week

Squeeze Play alerts were fully functional by Wednesday of last week.

Reporting of Squeeze Play results is not yet operational so breakouts from that watchlist are not yet included in end of day report or the recent breakouts report. That should be completed in the coming week.

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

This feature will return next week.
