Technical Speculator ...your financial market review

The August 2016 Newsletter and TS Model Growth Portfolio has now been posted

Topics in this month's research report are: Commodities - At a crossroads; International Equities - Recovery takes hold; U.S. & Canadian Equities - Bullish mid-year continues; Breakouts! - TSX stocks; and our new section: Small-cap Breakouts!
This page is the first of the 17-page newsletter.

The research report covers the target that was reached for WTI, the expected next move for gold, the next upside goal for the US$, global markets stabilize, Asian indexes require more time, signs of recovery for European markets and the UK's FTSE is in a recovery bounce.

On North American markets, multiple breakouts develop for the NYSE, the S&P 500, the Dow and NASDAQ, the topside advance for the TSX continues with new targets, the healthcare sector starts to shine on the S&P 500 and materials still has the top performance spot on the TSX.

Due to the popularity of our Breakout! section, we have added a new segment to our newsletter - small-cap Breakouts!  These are stocks under $10 with high upside potential.

And finally, our TS Model Growth Portfolio continues to outperform the benchmark S&P 500 with holdings in the financials, healthcare, home construction and consumer products.
