6:00 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

It’s been a rather tame couple of weeks for the major averages as trading volumes cool and price ranges remain tighter.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“I surround myself with good people who make me feel great and give me positive energy.”
– Ali Krieger


After closing slightly lower the previous week, the Dow Jones gained +147 points this week, up +0.56% to close at 26,559.

The index has closed up three out of the four past weeks and is 392 points below its all-time high.

The Nasdaq Composite gained +14 points on the week, or +0.17%.

It did trade above 8,000 intra-day on Wednesday, before closing the week 2 points below at 7,998 on Thursday.

A definitive break above 8,000 would be only somewhat significant, as a clearing of the old highs at 8133 is the bigger challenge which the index faces.

Chart services courtesy of stockcharts.com. Annotations by James Taulman.

The S&P 500 index lost just -2.4 points or –0.08% this past week.

That was, however, enough to put an end to a 3-week win streak.

The bellwether closed at 2,905, just 35 points shy of its all-time high of 2,940 (red line) set late Sept 2018.

We had just 1 breakout from the week’s watch list on Tuesday in PCTY which struggled, then closed the week with a loss of –2.88%(see below)

Looking for a Like-Minded Professional Who Manages Money ?
   – James F. Taulman

One question that I am regularly asked is – “Can you recommend a professional who manages money using the same methodology which your services are based upon?”

Over the years, there has been just a handful of these professionals who have stood out from the rest, and who I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for professional guidance.

One of them is Jack Elvestrom and here’s why…

Paylocity Holding Corp. (PCTY – Nasdaq)

This Software-Enterprise leader broke out on Tuesday as it cleared our posted TRIGGER PRICE of $91.71.

The volume on the breakout was well above +100%, or more than twice the normal rate.

Although those were the characteristics of a strong breakout, shares did close the breakout day well off of the highs and actually back below the TRIGGER PRICE.

That is never a good sign.

Wednesday morning, PCTY opened with a gap up and that started to negate Tuesday’s near-negative reversal. However, shares did also close that session well off of the day highs.

On Thursday, the stock fell below our previously posted 1st SUPPORT of the round-$90 on as volume was slightly above average.

Although there is some support at the round-$80, I am going to note our 2nd SUPPORT as N/A . The $80 price is too far below our MAX STOP LOSS GUIDE of $85.16.

Our 2nd SUPPORT is at the rising 50-day moving average, currently at $85.79.

Any definitive trading below there (50 DMA) would be a clear SELL signal.

I ran my routine stock screens over the weekend and added 2 new stocks to add to our watch lists.

There are now a total of 17 stocks on our watch lists. – see here.
