|Our NASDAQ Trend Indicator Turns
Positive; Number of Successful Breakouts Leap 3 Fold
The NASDAQ Composite gapped up at Tuesday's open and closed for a 1.3% gain on well above average volume which caused our trend model for the NASDAQ to turn positive. The upward movement continued through Thursday as the market reacted to statements from the Fed implying that a rate cut could come soon in response to signs of weakening international and domestic economies. Volumes spiked on Friday due to it being a so called 'quadruple-witching' day and a 'doji' candlestick pattern showed uncertainty among buyers and sellers as to the future direction of stock prices. For the week, the NASDAQ Composite gained 3%, comfortably beating the DJI (2.4%) and S&P 500 (2.2%).
The strong performance of the indexes, led to a surge in the number of successful breakouts from 9 last week to 27 this week, a 3 fold increase. The strongest performer was SunPower Corporation (SPWR) which closed the week with a gain of 20.1%. SPWR has appeared several times on our cup and handle pattern watchlist several times since it's base bottomed in December last year. The chart is noticeable for the length of the base (13 months) and the very short (2 day) handle.
