|Cup and Handle Breakouts Average 7%
Gain,Volatility Squeeze Averages 5%
The markets continued to set new all time highs bolstered by earnings reports, economic data and trade news. The NASDAQ outperformed the other major indexes rising 2.3% while the S&P 500 added 2% and the DJI 1.8%.
There were many strong breakouts this week, with the strongest being CYBE. The two charts below show the cup and handle base developed over almost 12 months. A significant clue to the coming breakout was the volume which was at or above the 50 day average since Jan 7 Even when the stock set its pivot on Jan 10, the volume dipped only slightly and remained above the 50 day average in the handle showing strong buying interest. Usually, the volume dips more significantly after the pivot is set. The proximate cause of the breakout was the announcement of a new product on Jan 16 which clearly had been highly anticipated.
