|Breakouts Average 6.9% as Trend
Indicators Turn Positive
Our market trend indicators for the three major indexes all turned positive after Monday's session. This proved quite providential as the NASDAQ Composite gained 4.6% this week. Technology stocks re-assumed a leadership role but investors also saw future value in small cap/value/cyclical stocks and pushed the Russel 2000 higher by 6.4%. The DJI and S&P 500 lagged by 3.3% and 3.8% respectively.
Earnings season is ahead and there will likely be many upside surprises as expectations are low. This will likely improve optimism for 2021 and the markets should respond positively. On the other hand, the potential for uncertainty about the election outcome, that could last for several weeks, will depress markets until there sis a resolution the country can accept.
There were 19 confirmed breakouts this week delivering an average return of 6.9% above their breakout price. Volatility Squeeze (SQZ) breakouts dominated in quantity and didn't disappoint in outcomes. This Friday, there were twice as many on the SQZ list as the previous Friday, so they will probably dominate again in the coming week.
|When it became
known last weekend that the The President was given Regeneron,
the stock broke out from a SQZ pattern on Monday. Since then,
the stock moved sideways and was still left in a SQZ pattern on
Friday. Now that The President is apparently Covid-19 free, we
may see renewed interest on Monday and a further breakout.
