|New Highs and Positive Earnings
Yield Increasing Volume and Strong Cup and Handle Pattern
The NASDAQ set a new high this week and with a gain of 2.3% comfortably outpaced the other two major indexes. Earnings season mostly produced better than expected earnings, which, along with anticipation of an interest rate cut next week, delivered 5 days of above average volumes. As we require a 50% increase in average volume to confirm a stock breakout, along with a close above breakout price, the number of confirmed breakouts increased from 14 to 18 this week.
Cup and Handle breakouts were the most plentiful and also delivered the highest returns with an average gain of 4.3%.
No new features this week
Set Trailing Stops with our Trailing Stop Calculator
We have been advocating that you use Average True Range to set trailing stops for some time. You may not be aware that we have a Trailing Stop Calculator which is accessed from the Take Action - Alerts menu. To illustrate it's use, consider the case of this week's top breakout, SAH. By entering your stock symbol, buy price and buy date, the tool will advise you what trailing stop should be set for the next session. To get maximum benefit, of course, you have to use the tool each day until the stock has been sold.
