 Weekly Commentary  

This week I got an email from a subscriber saying:
 "Ha-ha, yes it turns out that your data does help significantly in picking tops. Don’t know if it’s my additional intuition or pattern recognition of my equations. But your data is awesome! We backed off a little, but still up 40%." Emphasis mine.

That was nice, so let me brag a little. Last week I warned of a bearish head and shoulders top and also drew attention to my NASDAQ market signal that had turned to sell on August 13. There was no brilliance on my part, I was simply looking at what the technical indicators said.

So that's the value in subscribing to breakoutwatch.com. We are a provider of information that aims to help you in making rational investment decisions based on sound technical analysis. And the value we offer just got better. The market is down and so are our subscription fees - see our Top Tip  below.

So what now? Well our trend indicators are all down, and are likely to remain so. Watch them every day (they our published in our daily update email) and if you are risk averse, don't go long until they turn up. I suspect we will not return to the highs of July in the near term as markets will continue to fret over the Fed's next interest rate decision due September 17.

 Weekly Breakout Report  

Volatility Squeeze breakouts dominated the week with very few cup and handle stocks able to climb out of their very deep handles. Of the week's breakouts, none were under water by Friday's close and the average gain for the week was a healthy 4.1%.
