Welcome to our weekly newsletter, where we offer insights into stock setups that we share with our Phoenix members. 

In last week’s newsletter, we discussed the likelihood of the recent bullishness abating, as the markets could move into a period of consolidation during the northern hemisphere summer. This week we have seen such a pullback.

Many traders will often panic during pullbacks, as they lack a process and alignment with the natural movement to price. Good investors simply look to support levels where the declines will find exhaustion.

We offer our Phoenix members the key teaching points to understand long-term price action, technical patterns, and market cycles. During periods of consolidation, savvy investors and traders will exercise patience, recognising that the markets never move in a straight line. We expect our patience will be rewarded, as it repeatedly has been in the past, with new opportunities along with compounding existing positions.

Looking deeper into the main indices:

  • The S&P 500, this week price created a new all-time high at 4482, before a pullback in the latter part of the week to the daily 20sma.
  • The Nasdaq 100 momentum paused again this week, with a pullback to the daily 50sma. Price remains just below the all-time high of 15,186.
  • The Dow Jones 30, earlier in the week price created a new all-time high at 35,630, before a pullback to the daily 50sma.
  • The FTSE 100 couldn’t sustain last week’s momentum, and this week also pulled back to close below the daily 20sma and 50sma.

The overall trend in the main indices remains bullish, and the probability remains weighted towards the continuation of the long-term bull trends established in 2009.

We continue to hold high-performing stocks in our portfolio, which we have been adding to during this round of breakouts. Good quality opportunities continue to present themselves, which allows us to diversify further. We continue to share setups and signals with our Phoenix members.

OUTPERFORMING STOCKS COVERED THIS WEEK

UK Stocks

US Stocks

FTSE 100

On the monthly timeframe, for several months price has struggled to break above the pivot high from 2015 at 7124. Earlier this month price showed strength, however this week price has weakened to move back below this key level. The patience we have applied during this time should reward us with opportunities in stocks that break out from long periods of consolidation.

Following last week’s strength, where price reached 7221, an 18-month high, this week price has pulled back to support at the 7000 round number. The Sublime trend filter continues to remain green on the weekly timeframe, with price above both the 50sma and 200sma.

On the daily timeframe below, the pullback has resulted in price moving below both the 20sma and 50sma. Price has been moving sideways since 10 May this year, and this week the Sublime trend filter turned grey. However, our bias overall remains bullish, and we continue to look for stocks outperforming the Index.

UK STOCKS

Admiral Group - ADM

Overall price is looking strong. The strength displayed in July has continued in August, with a gain of 8% to date. This follows a growth of 7% in June. The next level of resistance is the £40 round number.

On the weekly timeframe, price is trading above the 50sma and 200sma, and the Sublime trend filter is green.

On the daily timeframe below, the Sublime trend filter is green and price is above the 20sma, 50sma and 200sma. Price was in a period of consolidation between 4th March to mid-July 2021, and has since broken out and formed a linear pattern. A continuation of this move could offer Phoenix members an opportunity before the next level of resistance.

Croda International - CRDA

On the daily timeframe below, price is above the 20sma, 50sma and 200sma, and the Sublime trend filter is green. The patience we have previously discussed is paying off, as there is evidence of a strong, linear trend. The bullishness of the trend is demonstrated by small pullbacks not reaching the 20sma. We will continue to share signals with our Phoenix members, particularly if we see such a trend develop towards the next round number at £100.

 

Dechra Pharmaceuticals - DPH

A stock with a good history of trends, price is currently in a strong uptrend. The momentum from July has continued into August, and this stock has gained 54% year to date.

On the daily timeframe below, price is above the 20sma, 50sma and 200sma, and the Sublime trend filter is green. Since price broke above the major pivot level of £32 in August 2020, price retested this level several times and has since formed a bullish trend, using the 20sma as support. A continuation pattern above the £50 round number could offer Phoenix members an opportunity in a good trending stock.

S&P 500

To date, August has been a quiet month, with a small indecision candle. However, as we are only halfway through the month, the candle may change by month-end.

We will continue to update our Phoenix community with signals in this high-performing stock.

Brown & Brown - BRO

The overall trend in this stock has been strong over a number of years. Prior to the pandemic price, rose to the $50 round number. This level became a strong area of resistance where price failed to break through in the latter part of 2020.

A linear trend could offer Phoenix members an opportunity in a good trending stock.

Price is now developing into a potential long-term linear trend which it has also achieved in the past, increasing the likelihood of this occurring during the current trend. Now that the price has closed above $50, the next resistance area is the $100 round number. We will continue to update our Phoenix members as the trend develops further.

Edwards Lifesciences - EW

A stock in an overall trend, but with periods of pullbacks. Since price broke above the previous year high at $92 in April 2021, price has formed a linear trend. July’s gain of 8% has been followed up with a gain to date in August of over 5%.
