The Euro Stoxx 50 fires the year with heavy losses

European indexes bounce the year with heavy losses (-1.16% Dax, Cac and FTSE -1.03% -0.42%) and irregular Ibex our head again, losing 1.23% to of 9859.10 points, which will open the year looking into the abyss and with the dubious honor of being the fourth worst rate in the world.

With these falls, the EuroStoxx 50, leaving a 1.20% to 2807.04 points, with a strong bearish surround drilled a stroke averages of 50, 70 and 25 sessions and found support “in extremis” in the support of 2,800.

Wrong end of the year in Europe, if in stock, we can speak of a Europe in which Germany up by 16% and Spain fell by 17% and bad business, we have made year-end rally upside down absolutely uncorrelated Wall Street, that by performing the script reaching new highs.

This good performance of U.S. rates, contrasts sharply with the Europeans in comparison with the Eurostoxx 50, which closed with losses of around 6%. U.S. suffered from the crisis before, but also measures progress in macro data and begin to reflect, while the debt crisis in the eurozone is still far from solved. The decorrelation for U.S. rates will remain in the 2,011.

Therefore I am confident that New Yorkers index, ended 2011 with very good results and hopefully one year ahead. However, short-term rates are going very overbought and showing signs of fatigue, so once the magical effect of the first days of January, there is every chance of a sharp correction, for which there will be very vigilant and prepared the stops.

Buying Stocks On Breakouts part 3

Step Six: The next step is to identify when you will add additional capital to your trade. First you will want to see the stock follow through on the breakout putting in at least a couple of positive days, adding to the stocks gains. The second half of your capital should not be invested until you see the stock pull back slightly and then resume its up-trend. Like the original breakout the resumption of the up-trend would be identified by the stock trading at a level higher than the high of the most recent up-trend. The chart below depicts a pullback and a resumption of the up-trend in Apple Computer (AAPL).

Step Three: The third step is to take your new list of stocks (preferably 10-15) and begin watching them daily. You will want to watch for the stock to make a breakout to the upside. This breakout will be defined by a move above the trendline which we have drawn to connect the tops of each peak of the trading range. When the stocks makes its move you will want to do some research, you don’t want the stock to make a jump because of news and if it does you will want to see it follow through for at least 2-3 days before getting in. Often time’s stocks that break out on news alone will have a tendency to drift back down after the news subsides. The best case scenario would be to have the stock make the breakout on its own merit. On the chart shown below you will see an example of Apple Computer making a breakout. Another factor to take into consideration is the stocks volume on the breakout day. You will want to see a substantial increase in volume on the initial day that the stock breaks out.

The following strategy outlines the technique of buying stocks on technical breakouts. Although this is one of the most basic investment strategies, we found the need to outline it for the less experienced investor who may be buying into a stock for the wrong reason. Many times if you ask a new investor why they got into a stock the answers can be quite unbelievable, ” I like their food, I shop in their stores, a friend told me it would take off, etc.”. If you are buying a stock for any of these reasons you might as well hang the financial section of the newspaper on the wall and throw darts at it.

If by chance you happen to make money on this type of trade, trust me you were lucky and chances are that the stock gods will take the money away from you on your next trade. Investing is serious business, and if your going to put your hard earned money into an investment you had darned well better be basing this decision on a technical or fundamental characteristic of the stock and not on a prediction form the guy down the block. The next time the guy down the block recommends a stock to you, ask him how much money he put into it and why exactly he thinks it’s worth buying.

Step Two: The next step is to watch our stock on a daily basis and continue to extend our trend line as the stock moves higher. While extending the trend line we do not want to change the angle of which the line is progressing. If the stock begins to break through our line we would proceed to step three.

Step Three: You will notice on the chart shown below that our stocks momentum is beginning to slow and its daily bars are beginning to break through our trend line. It may help to envision the first part of the stocks move as a golfer teeing off, the stock shot off the tee and was moving upward and outward with increasing momentum.
