As previously discussed in our weekly newsletter, the main indices remain inside areas of consolidation. Following the bullish moves of previous months, this is expected as price takes a breather before its next move.

The overall trend on the indices remains bullish, and the probability is weighted towards the next market move being a continuation of the long term bull trend. As savvy investors, we remain patient and ready to pounce once the markets move again. A continuation of the bull trend will reward our patience with new opportunities along with compounding existing positions.

Looking at the indices:

  • The S&P 500, since bouncing off the daily 50sma, is now using the 20sma as support.
  • The Nasdaq 100 found support at the high of last year and is now using the 20sma and 50sma as support.
  • The Dow 30 also bounced off the daily 50sma is now using the 20sma as support.
  • The FTSE 100 found support at the high of January 2021 and now continues to use the 20sma as support.

During these periods of indecision in the market, many panic and abandon their plan – if they have one. However, good investors remain and not only expect these periods but embrace them. Periods of consolidation initially offer pullback entry points but are also healthy for the next leg up. 

We remain bullish and long and continue to hold a number of stocks in our portfolio. We will add to these assets on the next round of breakouts. New stocks are also being considered and being added to the portfolio. Throughout the process, we continue to share signals with our Phoenix members. 

Let’s get into this week’s newsletter!

OUTPERFORMING STOCKS COVERED THIS WEEK

UK Stocks

US Stocks

FTSE 100

In May, price closed as an indecision candle as price found resistance at the 2015 Piv9 level at 7128. The 7000 round number continues to hold as support. Therefore, there is little surprise that price is currently consolidating in this zonal area.

On the weekly timeframe, the Sublime trend filter continues to remain green, with price is being further supported by the 200sma.

On the daily timeframe below, we can see that price continues to use the 20sma as support. The Sublime trend filter is currently green, and price remains above the 50sma and 200sma. Our bias overall remains bullish, and we continue to look for stocks outperforming the index.

On the daily timeframe below, the Sublime trend filter is also green, and price continues to trade above the 20sma, 50sma and the 200sma. All three MAs are consistently angling up, confirming a neat, linear trend. Following a close above the £50 round number, price formed a neat flag formation and continued higher in the past week. We continue to update our Phoenix members with any signals on this high-performing stock.

St. Jame’s Place - SJT

A stock to watch as a trend could be emerging. In May, price continued its strong move, which started in November 2020, and price has now increased during this period by an impressive 60%.

Blackrock Throgmorton Trust - THRG

A strong history of long-term trends and a fresh breakout makes this stock one to watch. Since price broke the Piv21 level in December 2020 at £7.25 price has moved up 19%. In May, price formed an indecision candle which was not unexpected following April’s 11% increase.

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

On the daily timeframe below, price reached £9 where it then pulled back to between the 20sma and 50sma. Price has since rebounded, and this week created a new ATH at £9.09. A continuation pattern above the recent ATH could offer Phoenix members an entry opportunity before the next level of resistance, being the £10 round number.

Price remains in an overall bullish trend. Price in May closed the month with an indecision candle. During the earlier part of May price experienced a 3.8% pullback, but price recovered in the latter part of the month to close with a modest 0.13% gain. The overall strength continues to sit with the bulls, who will seek to continue the long-term trend.

On the weekly timeframe, price continues to trade above the 50sma and 200sma, and the Sublime trend filter remains green. 

On the daily timeframe price continues to trade above the 50sma and 200sma and the Sublime trend filter remains green.
