Part of the blame for Friday’s sell-off was a rise of the yield in the benchmark 10-year Treasury, which was the highest since 2014.
All three of Wall street’s benchmarks closed below their respective 50-day moving averages, a level each just reclaimed during the previous week.
We now have a total of 16 stocks which we will be watching for a buyable breakout here.
One stock in particular is AIT which is building a base above its 50-day moving average and near new highs.

No one has to wait for me to issue any type of alert. Any gains above the stock’s TRIGGER PRICE while the day’s volume is at least on pace to make the TRIGGER VOLUME would have this set up confirming a BUY signal up to the MAX BUY PRICE.
