Monday Monday

Markets once again closed in a boring fashion. Again, as the old adage goes, never sell a dull market. Volume will not pick up until the new year commences. Until then, breakouts will be few and far between. They may move past buy points but the lack of volume will lessen the impact of the move. The markets did prove their resilience by finishing on their highs of the day after early weakness due to the Chinese interest rate hike.

Stocks near specific buy points are: ADP @47.27, LRCX @53.01, FAST @60.25, PCAR @57.85, FCS @15.90, LLTC @35.17 all 3 week tight patterns. Flat bases are WSM @36.92, RAI @33.51. Cup with high handle is ANR @56.52. Cup with handle is APC @71.99, MTL @29.84 (handle needs 2 more days to form), X @59.56 (handle needs one more day to form). CCL is holding just above a 45.00 buy point in a flat base which occurred on 12/21.
