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

This week we have seen the markets pause, which is to be expected, as we are in the middle of the US earnings season. 

One of the many benefits of trend trading is that skills such as patience allow us to wait on price, which we consider to be the most important indicator.

In last week’s newsletter, we discussed the possibility of a ‘Santa Claus’ rally into the end of the year – as we have seen many times over the years. Our view remains that, considering where the indices are currently positioned, the probability of this occurring is high, and we await price to dictate our next move.

Let’s get into this week’s newsletter!

Now that price has broken through a strong level of resistance, Phoenix members will have this stock on their watchlist. The next level of resistance is the £4 round number.
