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

This week the markets demonstrated continued strength, with a new round of ATHs in each of the main US indices. The US markets are currently in a broad pattern of new highs followed by pullbacks to areas of support, followed by new highs. As we mentioned last week, price never moves in a straight line, and pullbacks are a part of trading that experienced traders embrace; whilst novice traders often panic, resulting in positions closed prematurely and missed opportunities. As trend traders, these patterns indicate overall strength and predictability, particularly as the markets are moving in unison.

Looking deeper into the main indices:

  • The S&P 500, following last week’s pullback to the daily 50sma, price rebounded with a new ATH of 4,431.
  • The Nasdaq 100, also pulled back last week, this time to the 20sma, and similarly rebounded with a new ATH of 15,146.
  • The Dow Jones 30, maintained its strength above the daily 20sma and 50sma, also creating a new ATH of 35,183.
  • The FTSE 100, following last week’s pullback, price this week rebounded to close above the daily 20sma, 50sma and 7,000 round number.

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

Continuing from last week’s observations, for the past three months price has struggled to break above the pivot high from 2015 at 7124. Whilst price is supported by the weekly 200sma, daily 50sma and the 7000 round number. As trend traders, we remain patient, and aware that long periods of consolidation are often followed by large breakouts and long trends.

The Sublime trend filter continues to remain green on the weekly timeframe, with price this week closing above the 200sma.

On the daily timeframe below, we can see that since mid-May price has been using the 50sma as support. Last week price pulled back to the pivot low of 13 May, and subsequently found the strength to close above the 20sma, 50sma and 7000 round number. The Sublime trend filter continues to alternate between grey and red, indicating price is in a period of indecision. However, our bias overall remains bullish, and we continue to look for stocks outperforming the Index.
