|Several Strong Breakouts Despite
Signs of Investor Indecision
The NASDAQ closed 0.4% higher but a series of doji candlestick patterns for Tuesday through Friday showed that bulls and bears are in near equilibrium. This implies uncertainty about the market direction which was evident on Thursday when the index pulled back before testing the all time high set on July 25. The retreat continued on Friday although this can be partially explained by a reaction to Trump's doubling of tariffs on Turkey. While this looks like an overreaction given the relative unimportant of steel and aluminum purchases from Turkey, it is indicative of the nervous market mood as the rally
continues to extend.
The cup and handle pattern continued to deliver the most breakouts with Amyris (AMRS) delivering a 12% gain after a strong growth report. On average though, the Volatility Squeeze pattern delivered the highest gains overall with BCRX delivering a 20% gain by Friday's close.
