|Why We Focus on the NASDAQ for
I get asked why do I show the NASDAQ chart each week? The simple answer is that that's where most breakouts come from. For example, since March 13, which was the bottom of the COVID-19 crash, 72% of all breakouts have come from the NASDAQ, 25% from the NYSE and 3% from the AMEX exchange.
The stunning rise of the NASDAQ is evident in the chart since the beginning of the crash. It took only until June 10 to recover to its previous high and has gained a further 9% since then.
The index was knocked of it's perch this week, though as the DJI gained 1.8% and the NASDAQ barely 1%. Analysts are starting warn that the rise in the tech sector may soon be moderated as investors rotate in cyclical stocks. The sectors that performed best were industrials (+3.1%), energy (+2.3%), consumer discretionary (+1.6%), materials (+1.5%), and financials (+1.3%). Source (briefing.com).
|In my view, the
most promising High Tight Flag (HTF) stock this week is Emergent
BioSolutions (EBS). After setting a recent high, there was some
profit taking which has now reversed. This may be the result of
Cramer's interview with their CEO last Wednesday.
The 9 month chart puts the HTF qualification in context.
