|Market Conditions Favor Cup and
Handle Pattern and Volatility Squeeze Breakouts
The DJI outperformed this week with a gain of 3.7% while the NASDAQ was the laggard with a gain of 1.8%. The S&P 500 gained 3.0%. However, the DJI has yet to crest its 200 day moving average while the NASDAQ is well above that level and the S&P 500 did so on the Tuesday. Some uncertainty was generated on Friday when President Trump announced the elimination of special treatment for Hong Kong. However, he did not announce new tariffs or that the trade deal with China was in jeopardy. It is unlikely he will take actions that could threaten the economic recovery, or the rise in the markets which he sees as critical to his re-election prospects.
Cup and Handle Pattern breakouts were in the majority this week with 10 breakouts delivering an average 4% gain, while Volatility Squeeze breakouts were close behind with 8 breakouts and an average 3% gain.
That cup and handle pattern stocks would be in the majority is evident from the NASDAQ chart as we see a succession of new pivot points since the March low followed by a short pullback creating a handle pattern. At the same time, each pullback provides a short reduction in volatility setting up a volatility squeeze for some stocks. As of Friday, there were 135 stocks in a cup and handle pattern, and 49 in a volatility squeeze pattern. In some cases, this sets up both patterns simultaneously (see below).
|One example of a
stock that is simultaneously in a cup and handle pattern and a
volatility squeeze is The Kroger Company (KR). While I am not
promoting KR as an immediate buy, the constructive action in the
handle, combined with the squeeze and increasing momentum
suggest it is one to watch in the coming days.
