GMI back to 6; 4 green line break-out stocks from last week and 2 prior winners–FLT and TSLA

The GMI is back to 6 (of 6). I have to “fly by instrument” and stay invested long in spite of my emotions from the news.   My university pension has remained 100% invested in mutual funds.   My trading accounts are now holding long positions. (Long means I am expecting the equity to rise.)

I did a lot of work the past few days looking for green line break-outs.Check out my TC2000 webinar   from December 2012, link posted to the right of my blog page. for an explanation of my green line strategy.   I like to buy green line break-outs and to place my sell stop somewhere below the green line. A lot of stocks break above the green line and then re-test it before resuming their advance.   Because one never knows if the advance will resume, I sell when the stock closes below the green line and may buy back if it rises above it again.   In an IRA, I am not concerned with wash sales tax rules.   Here are a few weekly charts of stocks that broke above their green line tops last week or the prior week and had   recent earnings up at least 100%. These stocks (TPLM, URI, EEFT, GENT) are well worth researching.

FB has continued to rise after its green line break-out. (I own it.) Ignore the annotations from my class.

Lest you think that buying at a green line break-out is too late, feast your eyes on FLT.   You may also want to see what TSLA has done since breaking its green line last April around $40. Of course not all green line break-outs perform this way.   The challenge is to ride those that do and quickly abandon those that do not.

  1. Looking back a week or so on a purely technical basis, the URI trade didn’t seem to have the volume you would want from a green-line breakout. It also happens to be the only one of the five you mentioned that isn’t at least even or up a bit from 10/4.
