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

 This week the S&P recorded its 50th all-time high of 2021; a rare event, only occurring seven times in nearly 100 years. As the markets continue higher, characterised by regular pullbacks to areas of support, along with higher highs and higher lows, we continue to take confidence that the long-term bull market that commenced in 2009 will continue.

Last week’s pullback to support was short-lived, with the indices rebounding this week. 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 rebounded from last week’s pullback, to close above the 20sma and create a new all-time high at $4,502.
  • The Nasdaq 100, similarly found support at the 50sma and rebounded to create an all-time high at $15,402.
  • The Dow Jones 30, also bounced off support but could not find the momentum to create an all-time high, however is trading above the 20sma and 50sma.
  • The FTSE 100 found support to move back above the 20sma and 50sma, however price is struggling to break above the pivot level from 2015 at 7125.

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, in the latter half of the month price weakened and consolidated around this 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 weakness, where price retreated to the 7000 round number, price this week regained strength to consolidate above the 200sma. Price remains in a period of consolidation. The Sublime trend filter is currently green.

On the daily timeframe below, price this week bounced to close above both the 50sma and 200sma. The Sublime Trend filter is interchanging between green and grey, indicating indecision. Our overall bias, however, remains bullish, and we continue to look for stocks outperforming the Index.

The next level of resistance is the £40 round number.
