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

This week FACEBOOK defied its sceptics and ‘expert’ commentators by printing another all-time time, despite a broad market pullback. FACEBOOK has performed strongly since it broke above the $300 round number, gaining 24% in just 5 months.

Successful trading is based on a very simple set of principles that, when applied consistently, can deliver incredible, stress-free results. Our Phoenix community is made up of people from all walks of life, and no finance or trading experience is necessary to take advantage of our training and previous success in the financial markets.  

We offer our Phoenix members the key teaching points to understand long-term price action, technical patterns, and market cycles. We teach our members how to take advantage of periods when the markets are trending, along with opportunities when the markets pull back. 

Successful trading is a game of discipline and patience. 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 pulled back from last week’s all-time high to tag the 20 simple moving average. The all-time high remains at 4546.
  • The Nasdaq 100, this week briefly created an all-time high at 15710, before retreating into a tight area of consolidation just below the all-time high.
  • The Dow Jones 30, last created an all-time high on 16 August, and this week weakened further to close below the 50 simple moving average. The all-time high remains at 35630.
  • The FTSE 100, initially found strength but in the latter part of this week weakened to close below the 50 simple moving average.

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. Whilst 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. In early August price showed strength, however since then price has weakened, and this week moved back below the 2015 monthly pivot level.

On the weekly timeframe, price remains above the 7000 round number, along with the 50sma and 200sma. The Sublime trend filter is currently green. At its current level, price is at the base of the consolidation range, which commenced in April 2021.

The stock with an attractive history of bullish, long-term trends, however has also experienced periods of short, impulsive pullbacks. In July 2016 price broke above the monthly pivot level, and formed a linear trend up to mid-2018. Price then went into a period of consolidation, before it once again broke through the monthly pivot level at £6.50 in April 2020. Price then formed another bullish, linear trend until February 2021. Price has since been in consolidation.

This stock has a history of forming bullish linear trends following periods of consolidation, which is currently the situation. We continue to monitor the stock and will update our Phoenix community if a linear trend develops.

The month of August closed with a strong end, displaying a bullish candle with a 2.9% gain. August was the seventh consecutive month of gains in a very bullish trend. In September the S&P is initially showing weakness, but we are only a few trading days into the month, and it is anticipated there will be some adjustment following the return from the northern hemisphere summer break.
