Recent Breakouts

Our recent breakout scan returned some promising stocks in the USA and the UK but none in Canada or Australia. We look for shallow corrections and Trend Index troughs above zero which indicate healthy buying pressure.


Assura Plc (AGR) – Recovery from shallow trough. Rising Trend Index troughs indicate increased interest from buyers. Retracement respecting the new support level at 70 would confirm the up-trend.

Quote for the Week

A bull market is when you check your stocks every day to see how much they went up. A bear market is when you don't bother to look anymore.
