TradeProphet Triggers

Trigger issued by the TradeProphet system are based on criteria other than technical, so despite the fact that the market broke resistance line, the triggers are not yet clear. Leaving the Nasdaq 100(the trigger was issued two weeks ago),the DOW was issued a Long position, and the S&P500 issued a trigger to close the Long position.
Taking it all in, the market may have started a long move up, We will have to follow the TradeProphet triggers for next week, maybe the long position will be issued for it as well.

Lets now look at the Growth portfolio, growth stock were out of favor lately, TradeProphet system issued the triggers below for the growth portfolio :

TradeProphet Triggers

I must say that the attractive stocks seems to be KORS (though the Alpha isn't that high..) and XRS which issued a Log position with P/L of 16.85 (look at how uncorrelated the stock with the market, another good vibe..).

Any good triggers in the Value portfolio ? lets look at the issued triggers

It looks like a high risk-high return for the value stocks right now, HLF looks on a good position to move up(keep a tight stop, loss or let TradeProphet do it for you).

So, to conclude, I think the market as a whole is ready to move up,some gems in the growth list(KORS,XRS) and the risk is high but maybe worth it(NYSE:HLF).

Happy trading,
The TradeProphet team.

Disclosure: I am long HLF, SPY.
