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

Wall Street looks set to end the year on a high as U.S. stock futures are pointing up this morning.

The Dow closed Thursday at its highest ever close and is up an impressive +25.7% this year. That’s its best annual performance since 2013.

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq are close to all-time highs as well.


“The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.”
– Melody Beattie

Also, many stock market indexes around the world have outperformed the U.S. by a wide margin.  Argentina’s Mervel index is up +77% this year, while the main Turkish index has surged +46%.

European markets are mostly negative in early trading Friday, but the majority of Asian markets ended the day with gains.

As far as our watch list for today…

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

We have a total of 25 stocks which we will be watching for a possible breakout here.

One stock in particular is CE which traded +1.25% higher yesterday, and is nearing its TRIGGER PRICE.

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.

Current Portfolio Members can access all watch lists with updated trading criteria including – TRIGGER PRICE, TRIGGER VOLUME, and MAX BUY PRICE for every stock here.

NOTE: If you would like to be notified via email or text message when one of these stocks breaks out, make sure you are on the BreakOuts Alerts list here.
