|NASDAQ Loses 3.2% Week-on-Week
The NASDAQ (and S&P 500 ) crashed through the 50 day support level on Thursday and continued to fall on Friday as 'The 10-year Treasury note yield hit its highest since 2011, while the 30-year bond yield trades at its highest since 2014' - Marketwatch. Higher Yields altered the risk trade-off between stocks and bonds resulting in a movement out of stocks (which are at an historically abnormal high Shiller PE ratio of 32.71). The NASDAQ closed at 7788 on Friday and is 4.2% below it's recent high so well short of an official correction (10%) and our market trend indicators remain positive. The next support level is at 7604 (-6.5%) and then the 200 dma at 7483 (-8%);
Consequently, this was a disappointing week for breakouts with only 2 of 8 finishing with a positive gain.
On a brighter note, I've added two new filters to our watchlists this week. See new features below.
| Two New Watchlist Filters
I have often remarked that the potential for a breakout can be foreseen by a rise in price and volume on the day before breakout. Technically, this is called 'accumulation' and I've added a filter allowing the selection of stocks that were under accumulation on the day the watchlist was published.
I also had a request from a subscriber to allow a filter on Market Cap. The filter will select watchlist stocks that are either above (or below) a specified total valuation on the day the watchlist is published. The value should be entered in 000's. So a market cap of 1 billion would be specified as 1000000.
Our latest strategy suggestions are here.
