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

The major indexes finished another week at all-time highs after Friday’s December jobs report showed that the labor market remained strong.

It was the fourth straight closing record for the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq, while the Dow carved out its third in a row.

The broad-market benchmark has closed at a record on the first four trading days of the new year, the first time it has done so since 1964, according to WSJ Market Data Group.


“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.”

For the week, the Dow rose +2.3% and notched the biggest weekly gain since the period ended Dec. 1, 2017

The S&P 500 gained +2.6% – its best weekly rise since Nov. 11, 2016.

The Nasdaq added +3.4% and logged its best climb over the same period since Dec. 9., 2016.

The small-cap Russell 2000 ended +0.28% and at a new high close.

The market remains in its uptrend and breakouts continue to be buyable.

As far as our watch list for today…

I ran my routine stock screens over the weekend and added 8 stocks to our watch list.

We now have a total of 20 stocks which we will be watching for a possible breakout here.

One stock in particular is PHM which traded higher to near its TRIGGER PRICE yesterday.

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.
