|Market Trends Still Positive, but
for How Long?
The three major indexes retreated this week, with the NASDAQ sustaining its second consecutive weekly loss. Technology stocks led the NASDAQ lower after the week began with Microsoft (MSFT) and Tesla (TSLA) reporting better than expected earnings, but fears that the mega-caps still to report, Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Alphabet (GOOG), and Facebook (FB), may not match their performance, took the index down.
Overall, the economy is showing a mixed performance with home sales and construction rising due to lower mortgage rates, but an increase in unemployment as Covid-19 ravages the south and west will put further pressure on small businesses.Furthermore a wave of rent defaults and evictions will create more homeless, and hurt landlords and banks.
The NASDAQ may test its 50 day moving average in the near future, but with low bond yields and gold at its highest price ever, where else can investors put their money, other than in the stock market.
|With the Volatility
Squeeze pattern performing well over the last week with an
average gain of 5.4%, this week we look at the most likely
breakout from that pattern from Friday's watchlist.
Food Distributor, SpartanNash (SPTN) broke out from a cup and handle pattern on 7/21, but has moved sideways since then and is in a Volatility Squeeze pattern. Momentum has been strong, although volumes have been below the 50 day moving average. SPTN ranks second in the Food Distribution industry with an RS rank of 91, which puts it in the top 10% price performance of all companies over the last 12 months.
