Patterns Dominate Breakouts
Until Friday, it seemed likely that the NASDAQ would fail to set another weekly successive new high. That changed on Friday when technology stocks, led by Amazon (AMZN), took the index to a 2.2% gain over Thursday's close. The index closed well above the two standard deviation Bollinger Band. This doesn't necessarily mean that a pull back will be immediate, but certainly suggests there will be some profit taking on Monday.
Friday's news that third quarter GDP rose at an annual rate of 3% lifted other sectors too, but briefing.com put the result in perspective, commenting "the headline number was inflated by a change in inventories, while real final sales decelerated to 2.3% from 2.9% in Q2. In other words, the U.S. economy is proceeding largely at the same ho-hum pace."
Breakouts jumped to 23 this week from 14 last week. Cup and Handle pattern stocks dominated with 14 breakouts followed by Volatility squeeze pattern stocks with 7.
| At the request of a subscriber.
I've added a new watchlist filter allowing the selection of
NASDAQ stocks only. While I don't suggest limiting your search
for candidates to just NASDAQ stocks, it is certainly true that
the majority of breakouts come from that exchange.
I also fixed a bug in the watchlist chart browser. This allows you to quickly review that charts of stocks selected by your filters and is a useful way to compare possible breakout candidates. There is an example of the chart browser here.
Our latest strategy suggestions are here.
I noticed that the image showing my suggested filters was incorrect in the strategy document and that has been corrected. I also added a reminder that to limit email alerts to your filters only, you must set your Account Management > Alert Preferences as follows:
