Weekend Video – Short-term Breadth Wanes, QQQ Leads with New High, Clean Energy ETFs Form Bullish Setups, Copper ETFs Pull Back (Premium)

Check out the Premium Page (click here) for articles and videos covering trading strategies, seasonality, exits, patterns and more.

The bull market remains in place, but we are seeing some short-term weakness in the breadth indicators. This weakness is reflected in small-caps, which pulled back the last two days. Pullbacks from new highs are normal and this could produce a bullish setup in the coming weeks. The bond market remains a mess as TLT bounces within a triangle and holds up well in spite of inflationary pressures. Oil and energy related shares are pulling back after advances. My eyes are on the three clean energy ETFs (ICLN, QCLN, TAN) as they form short-term bullish patterns after breakouts. The copper-related ETFs are also on the radar as they pulled back after their breakouts. All this and more in the weekend video.

Black Friday Specials

Black Friday week is perhaps the best week of the year if you are thinking of signing up to a charting service. StockCharts.com, TrendSpider and TradingView (affiliate link here) all run great promotions. These are all great platforms and the preference is largely a personal choice based on one’s needs.

Personally, I find myself using TradingView more and more because the default data is not adjusted for ordinary dividends, it is easy to add/remove names from lists, the interface is simple and fast, and you can see the earnings dates right on the chart.
