 Weekly Commentary  

Although the NASDAQ continued to rally through Thursday, Friday's collapse left our market signal for the NASDAQ Composite pointing down, while the DJI and S&P 500 have reversed and are showing an upward trend developing. Only the S&P 500 showed a positive gain for the week, however. The positive trend for large cap stocks must be viewed with some skepticism considering the Ukrainian situation. With new sanctions to be imposed on Russia on Monday, the possibility of a renewed global recession is looking plausible, so caution is still advised.

 Weekly Breakout Report  

The rally in the NASDAQ which started the week produced a larger number of breakouts this week. Three stocks produced intraday gains of over 10% with only 4 out of 15 breakouts closing down.
