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…

MON 12/10: Rally Under Pressure – EPR Sets Up in a Base

Richard-James– James F. Taulman, former Editor-in-Chief of the first independently licensed website to offer stock reports and services based on the CAN SLIM® investment system.


5:30 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

NOTE: Today’s watch list can be found here.

Drama remained high on Wall Street this past week as there were hopes of a resolution to the trade war with China, then the arrest of a Chinese executive, all while the Dow was making 1000 point swings.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“God gives the nuts, but he does not crack them.”
– Franz Kafka


Recent rally hopes were destroyed as the major averages turned again volatile and negative.

We started the week off strong, and on the heels of a solid previous week where we had a “follow through day” in the market on Wednesday, then more bullish action on last Friday.

First thing, Monday morning, the major averages opened with a gap higher. This quickly put the Dow and the S&P 500 just above our noted technical points of resistance of their respective moving averages.

However, the gains and the bullish optimism wound up being very short-lived as on Tuesday we had another fierce sell off. Seems there was some confusion over the terms of a deal that was struck over the weekend between China and the United States. Main-stream investors have been closely monitoring the trade conflict between the U.S. and China while looking for the Fed to back off from its tightening bias.

The exchanges were closed on Wednesday which gave many of us a needed pause.

The ride continued with another, although less severe,  gap lower on Thursday morning followed by continued declines before a positive reversal took hold mid-day. The Nasdaq made a 200 point run and actually closed with a gain on the session.

The indices looked poised to continue higher for Friday morning, however, stocks resumed their sell-off following a weaker-than-expected jobs report.

It became the biggest weekly percentage decline for all three benchmarks since March, while also marking the worst start to a December since 2008, according to Dow Jones Market Data.

As we can see on the charts below, the Dow Jones shot up right to our chart-noted resistance, and remained in its previously noted longer-term downtrend losing -4.5% on the week.

Chart courtesy of stockcharts.com

The Nasdaq shed another -4.9% on a weekly basis, and fell back into its downward channel.

Chart courtesy of stockcharts.com

The S&P 500 index lost -4.6% this past week as the benchmark pulled back from near previously noted resistance of its moving averages.

Chart courtesy of stockcharts.com

We called the caveats in this latest rally last week with – “…let’s keep in mind that there is still a good deal of overhead supply – leftover from the recent selloff, and several points of resistance for us to watch. Two out of three of the major averages are below their respective 50- and 200-day moving averages – with only the Dow being above its 200 DMA.”

Based on the environment and noted technical concerns with the major averages I said – “We will let our breakouts continue to be our guide.”

From our watch list high-ranked stocks, we had
breakouts this past week.

SYM LAST ADDED TO WATCH LIST BUY PRICE BUY DATE % P/L
STOR $30.68 12/3/18 $30.78 12/6/18 -0.32%
ICLR $139.63 12/2/18 $147.03 12/3/18 -5.03%
EL $137.12 12/2/18 $147.33 12/3/18 -6.93%

As I say – you should always maintain a watch list of high-ranked leader which are setting up in bullish technical bases.

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

We now have a total of stocks which we will be watching for the next buyable breakout – see here.

THU 12/6: Dow Futures Down -450

Richard-James– James F. Taulman, former Editor-in-Chief of the first independently licensed website to offer stock reports and services based on the CAN SLIM® investment system.


5:30 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

NOTE: Today’s watch list can be found here.

This morning trading resumes after Wednesday’s observance of the death of former President George Herbert Walker Bush.

After a huge sell off on Tuesday where the the Dow closed down -3.1%, the S&P 500 dropped -3.2% and the Nasdaq shed -3.8%, Dow futures are currently off another -450 points this morning.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”
– Maya Angelou


The chief financial officer of Chinese tech giant Huawei has been arrested in Canada.

The arrest sent major shock waves through Asian stock markets. The main index in Hong Kong fell more than -2.5% and Tokyo stocks dropped nearly -2%. Shanghai’s market slid about -1.7%.

Markets were also unsettled in Europe, where major indexes fell by up to -1.5%. US stock futures were pointing down more than -1%.

The arrest could overshadow talks between the United States and China aimed at defusing their damaging trade war. Investors were already worried that a truce negotiated at the G20 would not hold.

As far as earnings, we have Duluth Trading Co (DLTH), H&R Block (HRB), Kroger (KR), Lands’ End (LE), Michaels Stores (MIK) and The Children’s Place (PLCE) will release earnings before the bell.

Lululemon Athletica (LULU) and Ulta Beauty (ULTA) will follow after the close.

The US Census Bureau will release its October trade balance report at 8:30 a.m. ET.

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…

Just when a new rally got going with a confirmed follow through day last Wednesday, some solid breakouts through the week, and a strong close on Friday, we have what happened on Tuesday with a huge selloff day, and today looks just as bad.

The only thing we can do is pay close attention to the recent breakouts. Take it one stock at a time.

Of course, we can expect some pullback in those individual issues, so support areas and price and volume comparisons should be watched closely.

Our two latest buyable breakouts from our watch list were on Monday as both EL and ICLR blasted above their posted TRIGGER PRICE.

Each has pulled back, yet remain above support.

SYM LAST ADDED TO WATCH LIST BUY PRICE BUY DATE % P/L
EL $152.65 12/2/18 $147.33 12/3/18 -2.20%

ICLR $147.17 12/2/18 $145.00 12/3/18 -0.99%

I ran my routine stock screens this morning yet did not add any new stocks to our watch list.

We now have a total of stocks which we will be watching for the next buyable breakout – see here.

One of those is COLM which broke out on Tuesday, yet the volume did not confirm a BUY signal.

MON 12/3: Futures Soar – 10 Stocks on Our WatchList

Richard-James– James F. Taulman, former Editor-in-Chief of the first independently licensed website to offer stock reports and services based on the CAN SLIM® investment system.


12:30 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

NOTE: Today’s watch list can be found here.

After a very strong week on Wall Street last week, this morning stock futures are sharply higher.

Last week both the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq logged their best weekly performance since December 2011 while the Dow Jones Industrials posted their strongest week since November 2016.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Rank does not confer privilege or give power. It imposes responsibility.”
– Peter Drucker


We also had a confirmed follow through on Wednesday after Fed Chair Powell announced that interest rates are “just below” neutral. The Fed has appeared to soften its stance on monetary policy. Investors had been concerned the FMOC would raise rates aggressively in 2019. A rise in interest rates is sure killer of any bull market.

BEIJING, CHINA – NOVEMBER 9: U.S. President Donald Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping arrive at a state dinner at the Great Hall of the People on November 9, 2017 in Beijing, China. Trump is on a 10-day trip to Asia. (Photo by Thomas Peter – Pool/Getty Images)

The market continued to get further excited on Friday after upbeat comments from a U.S. trade official who suggested that a trade deal looks possible during a meeting between Trump and Xi at the G-20 summit in Argentina.

This weekend, it was announced that the leaders agreed to a 90-Day tariffs cease-fire. Each stating they would stop the introduction of new tariffs and step up their trade talks.

The Dow closed with weekly gains of +5.16% while the Nasdaq rose +5.64%, and the S&P 500 jumped +4.85%.

After a follow through on Wednesday, then a solid day on Friday, futures are now currently pointing to a strong opening. Looks like the Dow and the S&P will be bullishly taking out the above noted technical points of resistance of their respective moving averages.

We will let our breakouts continue to be our guide.

If you have been using any of my daily or weekly watch lists, or working more closely with me through one of my other services – you should have picked up several breakouts recently and are now, at the least, partially poised to take advantage of today’s potentially positive action.

I ran my routine stock screens over the weekend, and added 5 new stocks  to our watch list. Four of those are TrendLine SetUps.

We now have a total of 10 stocks which we will be watching for the next buyable breakout – see here.

One of those is STOR which traded +0.74% on Friday with a +37% increase in volume and now is -1.22% from its TRIGGER PRICE.

The NYSE and Nasdaq exchanges will observe a moment of silence on Monday and be closed all day Wednesday in observance of the death of former President George Herbert Walker Bush.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bush family.
