 Weekly Commentary  

The week began with the markets moving higher on the expectation that  the FOMC would hold interest rates steady. This was confirmed on Thursday but delivered only a brief respite before fears emerged that Janet Yellen may yet become the "Grinch" who stole Christmas. At her press conference, Yellen maintained that FOMC members are still looking to raise rates before the year ends. So rate uncertainty remains and the markets tumbled on Friday on double the average volume ahead of new elections in Greece to take place on Sunday which could threaten the Eurozone bailout agreement.

The NASDAQ composite did maintain a slight gain for the week but our market trend indicators continue to point down.

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

Use our Trend Indicator Tool on any Stock Symbol

Did you know you can learn the latest trend of any stock in our dataabase?

Suppose, for example, you were contemplating taking a position in QURE, (our top breakout this week) when it appeared on our Volatility Squeeze watchlist on 9/14, the day before breakout. If you looked at a 3-month closing price chart, you would have seen a stock moving sideways, with a possible slight upward trend.
close price chart for QURE
To determine if the trend was really up, you could use our Trend Reversal Signals tool. As of 9/14 the tool would have shown that QURE was in an uptrend since 9/10. Armed with this additional information, you are now better informed.

Trend Reversal Signals for  QURE
The Trend Reversal Signals tool is accessed from the Analytical Tools Menu.
