QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.”
– Rudyard Kipling


European markets were closed on Monday. Asian markets ended mixed.

With the markets closed in observance of Good Friday, Thursday was the last trading day of the week, the month, and also the first quarter.

The major benchmarks did rally on the day, but posted losses for March, and for the quarter with the Dow Jones and S&P 500 posting their first quarterly declines since 2015.

For the week, the Dow rose +2.7%, while the S&P added +2.1% and the Nasdaq was up +1%.

For the month of March, all three booked steep declines, with the Dow off -3.5%, the S&P 500 down -2.7% and the Nasdaq losing -2.9% in its biggest monthly drop since January 2016.

For the quarter, the S&P 500 closed down -1.2%, the Dow lost -2.3% as both indices fell into correction, and also ended nine-quarter win streaks; for the Dow, that represented its longest such streak since 1997.

The Nasdaq, however, did actually end Q1 up +2.3%, the seventh-straight quarterly gain for the tech-laden index.

On the bright side, the S&P 500 and Dow Jones found support at their 200-day moving averages. The Nasdaq composite rose above Wednesday’s session high. There were many stocks making gains with an increase in volume.

I ran my routine stock screens over the weekend, and added 1 new stock to our watch list.

We now have a total of 14 stocks which we will be watching for a possible breakout here.

One stock in particular is ENV which is trading just off of new highs and above support of its 50-day moving average.

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.
