 Weekly Commentary  

The NASDAQ Composite is testing resistance at 4271. It briefly surpassed that level but closed lower on Thursday. Friday's trading did not test resistance so we may see a brief consolidation before another breakthrough attempt is made. The Big Picture identified several reasons for the gains, despite the rise in oil prices and the Iraq situation:
  • Homebuilder sentiment climbed from 45 to 49 vs 47 expected.
  • Philly Fed came in higher than expected for the 4th straight month.
  • Fed continues to taper $10B a month, market likes, S&P 500 closes at all-time highs.
  • Empire manufacturing index came in at its highest level since 2010
  • Industrial production grew by 0.6% m/o/m, better than expected, April #’s were revised up.
  • Initial jobless claims 4-week moving average moved down to 312k, continuing claims hit the lowest levels

 New Features this Week Additional Value that we added this week

Following the success of the squeeze indicator, I've developed a more comprehensive report that lists all optionable stocks that are in a squeeze, no matter what pattern they are in. This report is "responsive" meaning that it adapts to the viewport of the device on which it is being displayed. Try it on your mobile device(s).

This is a beta test version that will undergo further enhancement in the future.
