My  Market  Observations

Two weeks ago, it appeared that the institutions were rotating out of the Technology Sector and into Health Care, Transportation, or Home Builders sector.   On Friday July 14th,  $JPM,  $C  and  $WFC   reported earnings and the market did not react very favourably.   That put a dent in the Financial Sector.   Since the institutions primarily dictate the movement of the stocks, it is prudent for retail investors to monitor the stocks on their Watch List.    $CPA (Copa Airlines)  broke out on Wednesday  July 12th  in volume that was twice the normal average daily volume. Stock was being accumulated by the institutions soon after the July 4th holidays.   They favoured this stock out of all the other airlines.   Retail investors should have made the decision to follow the institutions and start accumulating this stock on Wednesday July 12th  when it punched through its resistance of   $125.78 (buy point of   $125.88  which is 10 cents above the resistance).   Volume was the confirmation signal that the retail investors should have been paying attention to.        


Market  Status

I still have a bullish bias towards the market.   Markets don't always go straight up and there is always a counter trend in a bullish trend before the market adjusts and goes back into its uptrend trajectory.   Currently,   IBD(Investors Business Daily)   has   "Market Uptrend Resumes"    as a market status.    Volume  on the major indexex ,  $SPY   n  $QQQ  is low and we generally would like to see volume higher than average daily volume when the market resumes its uptrend.   Don't let that stop you from taking a small position in the leading stocks that are in the leading sector.   Last year we had a  "Follow thru"   day on July 1st  and the market just took off for a   +10%   gain within 6 weeks.  


Stocks  to  Monitor  This  Week 

My analysis of the market performance since the beginning of July is as follows:
  1. $DJI   ...    +0.74%
  2. $SPY  ...   +1.38%
  3. $QQQ  ...  +5.93%
  4. $XLK  ...    +4.64%
$XLK (Technology Sector)  has been the leading sector during the last 2 weeks.   We are starting out with the second quarter earnings season this week.    $V, $MSFT, $SWKS   and   $NFLX  are just some of the stocks that will be in the earnings confessional booth this week.   They have been up  +4%  to  +10%   in two weeks of July,  leading up to the earnings this week.   Their earnings will propel the market up or down, depending on how the institutions react to the earnings.   These are the stocks that I plan to watch this week.   Their performance for the last 2 weeks is highlighted.  

  • $AMAT    +12.46%
  • $LRCX    + 12.93%
  • $NVDA    +18.39%
