|Our market trend indicators remain
positive despite the three major indexes losing over 1% as traders
took profits in response to heightened tension with North Korea.
The NASDAQ Composite was the biggest loser as it gave up 1.5%.
Friday brought some relief as threats and counter threats
continued but volume was well below the 50 day average.
Inflation remains low which implies that investors need not fear a fed funds rate hike in the near future. "The fed funds futures market now points to the June FOMC meeting as the most likely time for the next rate-hike announcement with an implied probability of 57.5%. Last week, the market expected the next rate hike to occur in December with an implied probability of 50.4%." (briefing.com)
The negative sentiment kept confirmed breakouts to just 10 with the cup and handle pattern again providing the bulk of the successes with 8 breakouts and 2 from the Volatility squeeze pattern.

Our latest strategy suggestions are here.
The breakout of GDOT (gain of 15% on breakout) is a further example of the tip I gave last week, which is that strong gains in the handle can portend strong breakouts. Also important, was that the RS Rank was 97, well above our strategy suggestion that the most important factor in strong breakouts is an RS Rank of 94 or above. If you apply our recommended filters for cup and handle stocks and examine the charts carefully you can easily spots potential breakouts such as these.
