Economists expect the central bank to keep rates on hold, but they will pay close attention to any details that give a sense of the bank’s plans.

The Fed signaled in March that the path of future rate hikes could be “slightly steeper” over the next few years than previously thought.

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

We still have a total of 15  stocks which we will be watching for a buyable breakout here.

One stock in particular is PRTY, which traded +1.6% higher yesterday with a +121% increase in volume.

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.
