A vast difference in the markets this week compared to last week with a recovery in the S&P 500 from the pullback of the last 2 weeks and with that a recovery in stocks and also the emergence of new trends.
Our scanning and analysis process has been in overdrive as we filter through all the opportunities to share the very best signals with our Phoenix members.
This week has once again highlighted the following:
- The trend is always your friend.
- The importance of patience.
- The need for a proven process.
- Why holding and compounding is king.
- A grounding in what trading psychology really means.
- Ego before profit will always be a one way trip to disaster.
Top-callers will once again have disappeared into the woodworks and those who had closed their positions in panic will now be regretting their decisions. Both the need to be right and trading on emotions have no longevity in the markets.
By applying patience and following our proven trend following process, we have allowed our positions to recover, added pullback positions to the portfolio and we are now loading up on the next round of breakouts.
Simple, effective and extremely profitable particularly when using leveraged spread betting or CFD accounts.
And that is with risking no more than 1% to 2% on each asset and a stoploss in play on every single position placed in the account.
We focus on the downside and let the profit come to us, the hallmark of good investing.
The FREE Facebook Community called the Launchpad is a great place to get involved in conversations around stocks mentioned in this newsletter and opportunities that may arise during the week.
And with that said, let’s get into this week’s newsletter…

CVS Group – CVSG
A new stock shared with our Phoenix members and one that displays all the hallmarks we look for in order for a stock to be added to the portfolio. It has a good history of performance, volume is good, it has broken out from a long-term area of consolidation and is now printing new ATHs.
The weekly is bullish with price trading above the 50sma and the 200sma and the Sublime trend filter is green and has been green since July 2020.
The daily timeframe below shows the trend that has been in play since the recovery from CV19. The trend, on the whole, is linear but does have the tendency to pullback to the 50sma.

We will continue to share signals with Phoenix members.YES, I Want Access To The Monthly Top Stocks!
Now is the perfect time to start preparing for when stocks do make a move. A recovery in this index will mean we can start looking to place long trades. Further declines and we can start looking to short stocks like we did back in 2008.
The market is poised to hand out some unique opportunities for excellent profit and growth for those who have learned to position themselves correctly.
A complete turn around in price from the PB of the previous 2 weeks with a move of almost 6% to the upside from the low of last week.

We continue to compound on stocks already in our portfolio that were not stopped out during the recent pullback as well as adding new emerging stocks being picked out by our scanning process.

Comcast – CMCSA

We will continue to share signals with our Phoenix members.
Darling Ingredients – DAR
A stock that has moved over 650% since the recovery from CV19 from $10 to almost $80 and one we have been sharing signals on with our Phoenix members since last year. March has seen price move over 23% printing new ATHs in the process. Investors are being very handsomely rewarded.
Little change on the weekly timeframe with price continuing to trade above the 50sma and the 200sma and the Sublime trend filter remaining green.
The daily timeframe below shows how well the 20sma and then the 50sma have held strong as support even through the recent pullback pushing price further onto new ATHs. The daily timeframe continues to angle confirming a long-term bullish bias. Given how long price has been in trend, there is likely to be a period of consolidation in the near future with the $100 mark the likely area. If you are not in this then you are better off focusing on new emerging trends as opposed to chasing a trend that has moved as much as this one has.
Walt Disney Company – DIS
A position was taken on this stock this week and shared with our Phoenix members. This is a stock that has performed very well for us back between 2012 and 2015 with a 170% move to the upside from $45 to $123. A break and close above $200 was the catalyst to add this back into the portfolio. We do like to keep an eye on stocks that have performed well for us in the past as they are likely to perform well in the future.

Starbucks – SBUX
A stock we entered in on, got stopped out of and now waiting patiently to re-enter in on. March has seen price remain in consolidation so far but with price pushing higher, a breakout is on the horizon.
No change on the weekly timeframe since January with price trading inside consolidation but above key support and the 50sma and the 200sma. The Sublime trend filter is still green confirming why we are still bullish.
