 Weekly Commentary  

After starting the week  with a downward move, the NASDAQ Composite moved sharply higher on Thursday and comfortably outperformed the two other major indexes overall. Thursdays move followed falling CPI and PPI figures which fueled speculation that the Fed will hold off raising rates a while longer. This implies that US markets will continue to move higher due to continued low borrowing costs for speculators and negligible returns in other asset classes.

 Weekly Breakout Report

 New Features this Week Additional Value that we added this week

New Report Formats

The majority of the information on our site is presented in tabular form. This presents challenges if viewing  the data on tablets or smartphones, whose use is increasingly prevalent. Consequently have begun the process of modifying the  tables  so  that  they can be viewed in a "responsive" way. "Responsive" is a term of art that refers to tables that automatically adjust their width and structure so thay can be viewed on different sized viewports.

You will notice these changes first on the Watchlists and Recent Breakouts reports and they will be extended to all other tables in the coming days and weeks.

A nice feature of teh new formats is that you can adjust the  number of rows displayed on a "page" and also search  the table for stocks, industries, companies etc.

The new formats have been tested on Firefox and Chrome. They may or may not function correctly on IE. If not,  please use either Firefox or Chrome  as your preferred browser.
This Week's Top Tip Tips for getting the most out of our site
Viewing Collapsed Responsive Tables

Depending on the  width of  the viewport in your browser, tablet or phone, you may find that the new table formats are collapsed, meaning that some  columns are not immediately viewable. For example, if you may find the watchlists shown as follows:
