Welcome to our weekly newsletter where we provide an overview of the main US and UK indices, along with analyses of selected stocks that are outperforming the market.
Let’s get into this week’s newsletter!
US & UK INDICES OVERVIEW
This week the S&P 500 continued its recovery with a gain of 2.2%, to close at 4514. The momentum we have discussed in recent weeks continues to build. On the monthly time frame, November has gained an impressive 7.6%, in turn fully recovering the declines we saw in September and October.
On the weekly time frame, price is trading above both the 50 and 200 SMAs (Simple Moving Average). Whilst on the daily time frame, price is also trading above the key moving averages, the 20, 50 and 200 SMAs, however the moving averages are not yet fully aligned. Price is now 29% above the October 2022 lows and, given the return of price above key moving averages mentioned above, we are actively seeking new positions from our watchlist.
We continue to see individual stocks perform well. Our portfolio currently compromises 16 US stocks and 3 currencies. We have compounded a number of these assets, in turn, delivering excellent profit for our Phoenix community members.
The FTSE 100, the UK’s premier index, had its best week since 11th September, gaining 2.0%. However, price remains range bound between 7200 and 7700. On the weekly time frame, price remains below the weekly 50 SMA, but remains above the weekly 200 SMA. Should strength return, the next major area of potential resistance is the pivot high from 17 April at 7936. The all-time high is 8047. We continue to monitor this index, waiting for confirmation of direction.
