Plenty of sectors running hot at the moment as the momentum stays in the market. Today we have a look at all of the sectors as usual, while also taking a deeper look at some of the more interesting stocks held within and identifying a few opportunities. This week we are looking at daily Heikin-Ashi candles once again. A reminder of what that means:
"Heikin-Ashi charts combine candles over a couple of periods (days or weeks for our purposes) to produce a “combo” candlestick. In so doing it essentially averages the price action over a couple of periods in one candlestick and in so doing manages to cut out a lot of the noise that you get using one candle a day. In so doing the turning signals, the buy and sell signals, become less frequent but more meaningful."
Podcast if you prefer to listen:
ASX 200 – Tracking sideways and once again threatening to "melt-up". Just seen a little MACD buy signal on the chart.
S&P 500 Index – Continues to hit fresh all-time highs as the punters keep piling in. RSI still hovering around the overbought line.

RESOURCES SECTOR – Finding a little resistance after a stellar run. Recent Heikin-Ashi buy signal.
South 32 (S32) – Just seen a nice little rally to keep the medium-term uptrend alive. Base metals rallying helps.

Altium (ALU) – Oversold on RSI. Heikin-Ashi buy signal. Showing signs of bottoming and being held in the growth portfolio for the recovery.
Afterpay (APT) – Seems to be hitting fresh all-time highs daily. Approaching $150 – far cry from the $9 it traded at when the market was "peak fear". Affirm IPO helped, displaying the addressable global market.

Wisetech (WTC) – Remains in uptrend – RSI, MACD and Heikin-Ashi buy signals.
