|Trend Signals are Up; NASDAQ
Bearish Double Top Canceled; New Industry Rankings
Our trend signals returned to pointing upwards on Tuesday and the NASDAQ closed above the bearish double top confirmation level effectively canceling that bearish signal. The resurgence this week was mostly due to a positive start to the 3rd quarter earnings reports with Healthcare, Financials and Real Estate sectors leading the way higher and a rising tide lifting all boats. Notably volumes were below the 50 day average indicating some doubts remain, particularly relating to China's drop in GDP, unresolved trade deals, threats of higher tariffs, escalating tensions in the middle east,Brexit, the Fed's interest rate direction, impeachment. In short, there is plenty to worry about.
The week's action produced an uptick in the number of breakouts with most coming from the Volatility Squeeze pattern than any other with an average gain of a very healthy 5.34%.
Last week I introduced a new Industry Browser page and for this week I've concentrated on improving the industry rankings page. Check it out under the Evaluate > Industry Analysis > Industry Rankings menu choice.
