|New Highs and 25 Breakouts
Delivered Average 5% gains
The markets initially shrugged off fears that the coronavirus would deliver economic setbacks and set new highs on Tuesday of this week. The bullish mood moderated on Thursday as news came of increasing cases and deaths. Friday's doji pattern indicated uncertainty of the market's next move before the long weekend. Nevertheless, the NASDAQ ended the week with a strong 2.2% gain.
Breakout stocks had one of their strongest weeks for some time with 15 cup and handle breakouts averaging a 5.6% gain and 10 Volatility Squeeze breakouts averaging a 5.5% gain
|This week I look at
a chart from Friday's Cup and Handle watchlist. I am not
suggesting you take a position in this stock, but it could be of
interest if an alert is issued on Tuesday (the markets are
closed on Monday).
ALB formed a long cup during which it fell almost 50% from its Left Cup price but started to form the right side of its base i in November. Since then there has formed three handles and broke out from two of them on strong volume. The latest strong breakout on February 4 formed the pivot point of the current handle. The latest handle shows classic behavior with profit taking immediately after the breakout and then buyers returned and volume increased. Volume on Friday was 16% above average indicating that buyer interest is increasing.
