 Weekly Commentary  

I'd like to welcome a number of new subscribers this week. For their benefit, I'd like to mention that in our weekly newsletter we first look at the performance for the week of the NASDAQ Composite as it is from stocks included in that index that mor breakouts occur.

The index continued to move sideways as it consolidates gains made in August. Support at 4546 was tested on Wednesday and Thursday, as it was in the previous week, That level has proved quite robust on three occasions now and a break below it would be decidedly bearish in the short term, although as long as interest rates remain low, the longer term outlook for stocks is positive

NASDAQ Composite
 Weekly Breakout Report  

Despite the sideways movement of the NASDAQ index, breakouts remained numerous and quite strong. Land's End was the standout performer as institutions bought heavily on Wednesday and Thursday. We issued an alert at 9:36 eastern time when the stock was still within buyable range. Quick action at that time could have delivered a 20+% gain in two days.

Alert Price: $36.880
Breakout Price: $35.64
The 5% maximum price: $37.42

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

How to Use out T/A Charts.

T/A stands for technical analysis. Since our chart pattern recognition methodologies all rely on technical analysis, it's natural that the charts we present are all T/A based.

How we use them on our watchlists, how to use the Chart Browser, and how you can use them is the subject of a short video I've prepared. You can see it here.
