|The NASDAQ Composite lagged behind the
DJI and S&P 500 this week with a gain of 0.4% but comfortably
leads year-to-date with a 9.1% gain compared to 6.3% for the DJI
and 6.4% for the S&P 500.
The chart shows the index still performing strongly although a near certain increase in the Fed Funds rate in March may curtail enthusiasm somewhat. Note that the market gapped up on Wednesday after the "presidential" speech but fell on Thursday as sounder analysis returned and Friday's low volume may have been in response to Chairman Yellen all but confirming there will be a rate increase this month.
The week produced some very strong intra-day breakouts averaging 9.9% from breakout to end-of-day close. The average return of 5% by weeks end was also very good.
I noticed that the performance reports for each watchlist were not accurate and these have been corrected. I also see that performance of Volatility Squeeze stocks is not included and I hope to correct that next week, time permitting.
Our latest strategy suggestions are here.
Have you Considered Call Options as a Trading Strategy?
As CALA broke out from a High Tight Flag pattern on Wednesday a subscriber bought a call option. The next day he emailed me to say
"Thanks Mike. Got out of those CALA Apr Calls at the high today when CALA was $13.70, made 168% in 1 day on the trade, paid for about 3 years worth of subscription with profit on first trade. Lol."
You can read about call options here.
