 Weekly Commentary  

I hope you are enjoying the Santa Clause relay and I wish you a happy and safe New Year's eve. I'm taking a break until the New Year when the newsletter will resume in greater depth.

Despite low volume during the holiday season the NASDAQ Composite closed at a 14 year high on Friday.

 Weekly Breakout Report  

 Low volume meant that few breakout attempts were able to meet the volume requirement of 1.5 times 50 day average volume. Consequently we recorded fewer breakouts than usual.
