Dashboard Indicator Review – Two Positive Changes
Indicator #2 NASDAQ Composite Index and 100-dma. This indicator finally broke above its 100-dma on Friday after closing below it on May 29, 2019. It is now on a new BUY signal (see chart immediately above and notice the red line in the green circle)
Indicator #5 NASDAQ Composite with MACD. This indicator issued a slow MACD SELL signal (upper one) on May 1, 2019 while the faster MACD (lower one) had a SELL signal a day earlier. Please refer to upper chart to review these signals.
Indicator #6 AAII Weekly Investor Sentiment Survey Bullish Percentage. The latest June 5, 2019 Bullish Percentage reading was 22.5% down from 24.8% 7 days earlier. This indicator remains on its BUY signal of November 29, 2018, but it is still below the critical 25% level for the third consecutive week Any move higher from this level will signal another buy signal confirmation, as is has been on a BUY signal.
Indicator #8 NASI Summation Index and MACD. This indicator is still on its April 23 SELL signal, but a market advance next week could turn it positive and create a “4” maximum BUY condition. Currently, only the fast MACD has had a positive MACD crossover on Friday. See chart below.

BDH Decision Page – BDH Dashboard ETFs
Copy and paste the DecisionPage link into your browser:
On ETFscreen.com, the Decision Page indicated that 29 ETFs out of 44 have “pass” ratings compared to 11 for the prior week. This is a huge turnaround in one week. Note that 6 of the top 11 ETFs on the Decision Page are Technology related and all but SMH now have “pass” ratings, a complete reversal from the prior week.
You can easily check the top performers for the past 5-days and one month by going to the “Additional Fund Stats” tab on the right side of the BDH Decision Page, and arraying the Rtn-5d and Rtn-3mo column, respectively heading from high to low.

Game Plan Going Forward
The NASDAQ’s next resistance level, if the NASDAQ moves higher, is at 7946.23 that was reached on May16. If that level is surpassed, then 8176.08 reached on April 29 is the next target, and is currently the high for the year. It may take a while for that to be achieved in the normally weak summer period, but anything is possible at any time, as we all have witnessed since 2016.
With the BDH strategy now on a “3” BUY signal, and possibly a “4” BUY signal when Indicator #8 signals one next week or later, investors can buy ETFs with appropriate STOP LIMIT orders in place. The ETFs selected for this new BUY signal are only being sent to subscribers today. Non-subscribers will be given that information next weekend.
