The NASDAQ rose 1.8% this week and has racked up 8.5% since the start of the year. The index again closed the week on a record high. The week's gains came in spite of Janet Yellen's testimony to Congress that another interest rate hike may come as early as March. Normally, this would have put a brake on market activity, but instead markets moved higher after her testimony as it implied interest rates will rise in response to stronger economic growth. Markets are anticipating, even before any legislation is introduced, that "yuge" growth benefits will come from infrastructure spending, less bank regulation, and corporate and individual tax cuts. Is this "irrational exuberance"? We shall see, but make hay while the sun shines.
Cup and Handle pattern and Volatility Squeeze breakouts delivered average gains of 4.5% this week.
No new features this week. A bug in the display of short sale candidates (head and shoulder top and 50-day breakdowns) was corrected.
Our latest strategy suggestions are here.
