|New Feature: Alert Only if Breakout
The NASDAQ gained 3.4% this week, mostly on Monday when the the markets surged in response to a report that Moderna (MRNA) reported a Phase 1 study for its COVID-19 vaccine candidate yielded positive interim clinical results. There was also support from the Fed on Wednesday as Chairman Powell said the Fed had plenty of ammunition in reserve. Thursday brought a downturn as a further 2.4 million jobless claims were reported and Friday saw profit taking ahead of the 3 day weekend.
The NASDAQ Chart shows the index has set up its fourth cup and handle pattern since the recovery, each followed by a breakout to the upside. The outcome of this one may depend on how successful the reopening is seen in contrast to the expected resurgence of the virus outbreak, particularly in southern states. If cases and deaths mount the markets may take a more cautious view.
Successful breakouts fell to 15 this week with cup and handle pattern breakouts dominating. Average gains to Friday's close were constrained by the pullback on Thursday and Friday.
|Real Page Inc. (RP)
shows a strong V shaped recovery and is now in a 'high handle'
formation. The handle action looks very promising with 3 days of
above average volume since the handle low. While we do not
recommend RP as a buy, it is certainly a stock to watch.
| Beta Test: Alert Only if
Breakout Volume Reached:
Many subscribers complain that they receive too many emails. While the number can be constrained by limiting alerts to those only matching filter settings, there can still be a high volume of alerts. I am now introducing a new constraint, which is only to receive alerts when the daily volume has reached the breakout volume level.
To implement this feature, 2 changes have been introduced:
1. New Option on Alert Preferences page: specify that you want to receive alerts only if the breakout volume has been reached.
2. You no longer set that alerts are to be limited to filter settings on the filter selection box. This is controlled by the Alert Preferences as shown above.
This has required some complicated coding changes so I ask your indulgence if this does not work as expected, as testing of this feature can only be done in real time. Please let me know through the Support Forum if it does not work for you as expected.
