Rare DB and Volatility Squeeze Breakout
Despite setting a new high on Wednesday following the White House's announcement of a trade deal with the EU, the NASDAQ closed the week with a 1.1% loss. There were two distribution days (Tuesday and Thursday) and surprisingly heavy selling volume on Friday, which during the summer is usually the lowest volume day. Facebook and Twitter were the biggest contributors to the loss with losses of 19% and 20% respectively.
The best performer this week (UNP) came from an unusual combination of Double Bottom and Volatility squeeze. The double Bottom (DB) pattern is shown with the squeeze with accelerating momentum on the chart below. A Volatility Squeeze occurs when The Bollinger Band (a measure of volatility) falls within the Keltner Channel. We will only show a stock to be in a volatility squeeze if the squeeze is also accompanied by rising momentum as this may indicate an imminent breakout. Note also that the breakout was preceded by an accumulation day (higher close on increasing volume).
