BUYABLE GAP-UP™  Click here for archived reports

Just because a stock is "extended" on a gap-up move doesn't mean you can't buy it. The fact is that in many leading stocks, a Buyable Gap-Up™ can often be your most profitable buy point!
Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX)
on January 8, 2015 at $154.10
Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX) had a rough time in the latter half of 2015 after questions arose concerning its business practices. This led to a massive decline from its early August 2015 peak price of 263.81. However, what goes up in the stock market can indeed go down, and the sell signals were there following what was in fact a very profitable upside price move that began in January of 2015. The initial buy signal on January 8th was a buyable gap-up that led to a steady price ascent that finally topped out in August.
Skechers USA (SKX)
on April 23, 2015 at $28.96
Skechers USA (SKX) posted a huge-volume buyable gap-up on April 23, 2015 after a strong earnings report. To those who follow more orthodox base-breakout "rules" this large gap-up move coming out of a well-formed base looks "extended." However, using our concrete rules for handling and buying into such price gap-ups one could have easily entered a position on the gap in order to participate in the ensuing price move that carried to a high of 54.53 in early August of 2015.

Acuity Brands (AYI)
October 21, 2015 at $182.88
The market rally following the huge downside break and wash-out in the general market in late August 2015 did not provide many buyable opportunities. However, Acuity Brands (AYI) was one stock that offered some reasonable profit potential given the difficulty of that particular market period. The early buy point represented by the October 15, 2015 pocket pivot would have gotten one in before the standard base breakouts that occurred later in October and November. The ensuing move gave investors a shot at banking a roughly 20% upside move from there, which was quite good given the uncertain and difficult market period leading into the end of 2015.
Facebook (FB)
on October 15, 2015 at $95.96
The latter part of 2015 was a difficult period where profit opportunities were far and few between. For that reason investors had to take advantage of any edge offered to them, and the pocket pivot buy point proved its worth once again in Facebook (FB). FB posted a very subtle pocket pivot on a trendline base breakout that occurred before a more obvious and standard high-volume base breakout several days later. The pocket pivot itself came on light volume, but it was still enough to qualify as a pocket pivot volume signature and a bona fide buy signal. While the ensuing move was rather shallow, just exceeding 10% from the pocket pivot buy point, it was typical of the rare profit opportunities offered to investors in a very difficult market period.

Our timing strategies can help you profit from identifiable market trends, whether up, down, or sideways. Use it to implement an ETF-based investment strategy that can simplify the process and put you in a position to produce big profits during strong market trends. See our results to understand how the models function in actual market environments. The market has been through its toughest years so far for market timing, let alone the trendless volatile markets of 2011-2012. Indeed, market timing strategies have been well underperforming the general markets since 2013. The trend following wizards which are a group of top fund managers who have been interviewed in books such as Michael Covel's Trend Following and Jack Schwager's Market Wizards series are collectively down once again in 2015 (as of November 2015 which are their latest results at the time of this writing). This is unprecedented in the long histories of these elite fund managers which sometimes exceed 30 years. Most recent results of these wizards are shown here. Fortunately, such periods always come to an end, new trends begin, and the model's gains in catching these trends have more than made up for the small losses. It is often darkest before the dawn.
