Quiet But Positive Start to Earnings

As I suggested last week, earnings has got off to a quiet but overall positive start. A couple of stocks not in today’s review but worth keeping an eye on are GS and MS, but the financial sector is by no means clustering uniformly. Remember, while our method involves playing OVI breakouts from flag patterns […]

Strong Upward Reversal But Challenges Remain

Last week I mentioned that the market could see whipsaws (as opposed to a comprehensive down-move), and to a certain extent that happened on Monday, and following the reversal bar on Monday, the major indices followed through and kept running upwards. Big thanks to Glenn for stepping in for the last two weeks … as […]

No Breakout No Losses – Focus on Strength

Well that was a bit of a damp squib wasn’t it?! Last week looked poised for more upside with many stocks setting up bullishly, but then along came a trade war escalation and the breakouts didn’t materialize. This is one of the many great reasons for playing breakouts as per my EDGE trading plan. It […]
