Another insightful issue of the ChartWachers Newsletter has arrived!

Delivering The Web's Best Financial Commentary Straight To Your Inbox

February 4, 2017

Hello Fellow ChartWatchers!

Well folks, you asked, and we've delivered!

After the success of last month's "2017 Market Outlook" webinar, Tom Bowley and Greg Schnell will be back again next weekend for another exclusive show! Join us live on Saturday, February 11th at 11:00am EST as Tom and Greg debate current market positioning, share their outlook for where the market is heading and provide powerful insights into how they use the charting tools and features on After back-to-back presentations from these two experts, they'll open things up for live Q&A, giving you a chance to get involved and become a part of the show!

Tom will dive deeper into the strategies he uses to trade gaps. As the latest earnings season winds down, this is a topic that couldn't be more timely. Thousands of companies have reported quarterly earnings in recent weeks, creating both bullish and bearish gaps throughout the market. Tom will describe the various types of gaps (common, breakaway, continuation and exhaustion), explain the importance of volume in analyzing gaps, and discuss the various support levels you should be watching in each gap type.

Greg will examine the recent lack-luster performance of the Energy sector, which has been drifting lower for nearly two months as crude holds above $50. This period is traditionally quite bullish for energy, so he’ll share his take on what needs to happen for this historical strength to kick in. Greg will also demonstrate how to most-effectively use our CandleGlance tool and customize its settings to quickly analyze a group of securities, such as the components of an industry group.

The webinar will take place next Saturday, February 11th at 11:00am EST, and will be reserved exclusively for StockCharts Members. Keep an eye on the webinar calendar, either on the home page or the Webinars page, and register for the show to save your spot. Registration will open up early this week.

If you're not already a StockCharts Member, this is a great time to start your FREE 10-day trial! You'll unlock all of our most powerful tools and features AND get access to Tom and Greg's exclusive webinar. There's nothing to lose! To get started for free, Click Here!

Dow and S&P 500 End Week On a Strong Note

Article Image What started off as a soft week for stocks ended on a strong note. Friday's gain was enough to keep stock indexes basically flat for the entire week. But there was some improvement on the charts. The daily bars in Chart 1 show the Dow Industrials jumping 186 points (0.94%) on Friday. That was more than enough to keep it well above its 50-day average and chart support along its...

New Highs Expand in the Healthcare Sector

Article Image New highs are a sign of underlying strength and chartists can measure this indicator using High-Low Percent. In particular, I like to rank the nine sectors by High-Low Percent or a moving average of High-Low Percent. Note that High-Low Percent equals new highs less new lows divided by total issues. Chartists looking for the weekly leaders in High-Low Percent can look at the 5-day SMA. The table...

No Chasing Allowed

Article Image At EarningsBeats we are steadfast in avoiding being involved in stocks into a company's earning's report because one can never tell how the market will respond to a company's numbers. Case in point is Amazon who reported their numbers last week. Just look at the chart below and you will see that the stock was poised to break out the day earnings were reported which was February 2. However when...

Stocks Relative to Their 52-Week High-Low - SPX v. NDX

Article Image Today during my DecisionPoint Report webinar, I pulled the intermediate-term indicator chart of SPX Stocks Relative to Their 52-Week Hi-Lo to show my viewers the divergences that are all over this chart.
