6:00 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

SEE ALL MY CURRENT WATCH LISTS HERE: James’ Stock WatchLists

The market got back in a confirmed uptrend this past week as stocks booked one of their best weeks of the year.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug.”
– Patricia Neal


After closing lower for 6 consecutive weeks, the Dow Jones traded sharply higher this past week.

The index advanced every session, sprinting back above its 200 DMA, to gain +1169 points or +4.7%. This was the biggest weekly gain since November.

The blue chips crossed back above 26,000, an important psychological level for many traders, before settling in just below that level, and just below their 50 DMA at 25,983.

The Nasdaq booked its best performance since the week ended Dec. 28th.

For the week, the composite gained +289 points, or +3.8%, to close at 7742.

The tech-laden index decisively bounced from its previous low set on March 8th.

The S&P 500 ended with a net gain of +4.4%, or +121 points closing at 2873 and bounced from its March 8th lows as well.

The S&P 500 ended the week just above its 50-day moving average. It’s first close back above the 50-day since a single session on May 16th.

Friday’s action is officially being called a follow-through day although there are some who question the volume on the Nasdaq, as it was +0.17%, and not the required +0.2%. The way I see it is – we had 4 breakouts on Friday from a watch list of 9 stocks. Those are buys.

This morning, the announcement of a deal between the United States and Mexico to stave off U.S. tariffs is boosting global markets.

U.S. stock futures point higher. The Dow is set to rise 85 points, or +0.3%. The Nasdaq and S&P 500 could jump +0.4% and +0.3%, respectively.

European markets opened up after stocks in Asia posted significant gains. Britain’s FTSE 100 rose +0.5% in early trading, and France’s CAC 40 climbed +0.2%. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng shot up +2.3%, while Japan’s Nikkei rallied +1.2%.

Armstrong World Industries Inc. (NYSE – AWI)

It all started Monday with a breakout in Armstrong World. This very highly ranked leader was just added to the watch list in last week’s Sunday Stock Report as it was building a bullish base of consolidation.

After Monday’s breakout, shares continued to advance the entire week. However, Thursday’s an Friday’s action was a clear technical SELL SIGNAL (+6%) for short-term traders as the stock quickly got extended on lighter (below-average) volume.
