The major market indexes again rose slightly, on continued buying by institutional investors in the absence of any negative economic/political news.

Our particular stocks were a mix of ups and downs, however, a reminder that our stocks are not all necessarily correlated to the broad market (and possibly an early indicator of a pending market correction?).  A number of long positons continued rising, but just as many retreated a bit, so that new weekly highs are fewer than in recent weeks.  A week of generally modest gains.

Half-way through October and no large market correction.  This interesting and atypical year continues.

Analytics:  Note that the number of trades signaled weekly is now lower, and expected to remain lower, than in previous months – as expected – in response to recent revisions that made the analytics less sensitive.

Also, each Level continues to hold a few positions that remain deeply in the red – a result of a different signal from the revised analytics a few months ago and subsequent decision to hold them through the counter-trend until they recovered.  While some are recovering, a few remain stalled or even worsening – these are being watched for potential exit if a productive reversal does not materialize soon.

Highlights:  6 new weekly highs in long positions.  6 stocks with double-digit long gains:

     FIVN +18%                                                                              BZH +53%                                         LPSN +109%           

     HUN +14%                                                                              FMSA +51%

     MESO +18%


2 new weekly lows among short positions.  1 stock with double-digit short gain:
