 Weekly Commentary  

The NASDAQ Composite gained only 0.4% for the week, but it was sufficient to more than double the S&P 500 (0.2%). For the month the NASDAQ gained 9.4%, beating the  DJI (8.5%) and the S&P 500 (8.3%).

The gains for the week were strengthened by better than expected earnings by Apple which gained 4% on Wednesday giving the index its only above average volume for the week.

A slowing economy (just 1.5% annualized in the 3rd quarter) and continued expectation of an interest rate increase in December by the Fed, is likely to hold  back gains in the near term.

 Weekly Breakout Report  

This was another strong week for breakouts with 7 out of 100 gaining more than 10% to their intraday high. These 7 were dominated by breakouts from a Volatility Squeeze and Head and Shoulders Bottom pattern indicating that it is  the  beaten down stocks that have the most to gain from the current market conditions.

 New Features this Week Additional Value that we added this week

I have continued work on making the site more responsive so that it plays better on mobile devices. This week's innovation is to the "Alerts Issued Today" page. This page now consolidates now  includes informatin about the current state of each alert, which was previously only available on the "Alert Monitor". because of this consolidation, I have now dropped the alert monitor page.

Use of the page is described below.
 
This Week's Top Tip Tips for getting the most out of our site

New Breakout Alert Monitoring Features

The first time you open the new Alerts page, you will see this popup window (assuming you allow pop-ups). I suggest you read it and then click the "Don't show this explanation again" so you won't be bothered by the popup again.

About alerts page

If you are viewing the page on a phone with a 600 pixel wide view port, will see something like this. The Balloons explain how to use each feature.
