1) MARKET SUMMARY
         > >From "The Daily" by Jon Johnson at InvestmentHouse.com


Friday the market did not give us the perfect setup.

- Stocks get more upside help from the Fed, trade possibilities.
- Instead of another pause into the weekend, the news fuels more upside and pushes indices to next resistance.
- Some really solid moves on the week leave less positions to consider for next week. A pause Monday and Tuesday would cure that . .
- Still waiting on Trump/Xi meeting resolution, but based upon the likely outcome it likely won't add much more as the market has priced in expectations for some minor deal.
- Would not be surprised to see the indices pause to start the week given a lot of good news is built into the past week's move.


Market Summary (continued)
Friday the market did not give us the perfect setup; as noted Thursday, it often does not. That does not mean it was a bad session. Hardly. The indices rallied nicely.

What we wanted, however, was another pause following Thursday's sluggish session, a pause to better setup a new move higher in the coming week to continue the move with a new breakout.

Stocks did start lower pre-market and by the open improved but were still mixed and near the flat line. The problem was the Fed was active again. Wednesday Powell confirmed the Fed-speak of the Fed vice chair Clarinda, i.e. that the FFR was just below neutral. Friday the New York Fed reiterated the FFR was not far from neutral and indeed the FFR was to remain 'low.' Okay, the top three on the Fed all agreeing rates were near neutral, meaning quite limited upside in terms of more rate hikes. Ultra-ultra Fed dove Kashkari also threw in that the Fed should not hike rates when job creation is strong and inflation tame. What more could you want?

How about the administration suggesting a US/China trade deal Saturday was a done deal. Mr. Lighthizer, a White House advisor who has been very negative about the possibility of a deal, stated he would be 'surprised' if the Trump/Xi dinner was not a success. Okay, so even the negative folks were pushing for a deal.

DATA (Tableau Software, Inc.)
Company Profile
We saw the major indices setting up a potential double bottom late November as they tested the October lows with rising MACD.  Some stocks such as DATA had already tested and started to bounce.  DATA gapped lower on 11/20, coming near the 200 day SMA and reversing intraday.  It rallied to the 50 day EMA to close that week and we put it on the report to play an overall market rebound off the October low test.

The following Monday DATA gapped upside, tested the gap, then started back up.  We used that to enter the play, buying some January $115 strike call options for $6.40.  DATA held its gain Tuesday, then Wednesday gapped upside and rallying.  Thursday upside again, nearing the early November highs and our initial target.  Friday DATA rallied again, moving to our target.  It then started to stall.

That was our cue to take some gain.  We sold 2/3 of our position for $12.90, banking a nice 100+% gain on the calls.  Now we see if it can continue higher or if the prior high was the top of this bounce.  If the former, we let the last part of the position work.  If the latter, we take the rest of a solid gain in a nice, fast bounce.

ARWR (Arrowhead Research--$14.52; -0.08; optionable): Biotech
Company Profile
EARNINGS: 12/11/2018
STATUS: Double bottom. ARWR gapped higher in early September on earnings, tested, but it was not a good time. In early October ARWR dropped hard in the market selling to near the 200 day SMA. Bounced starting late October into November then tested back mid-month, again coming to the 200 day SMA. Last week ARWR jumped Wednesday, then tested Thursday to Friday, holding the 50 day MA it just broke. Note MACD was higher at the second low, showing momentum turning as seen in so many stocks. We are watching for a new break higher with good volume as our entry point. Earnings are 12/11, but ARWR has performed well on its results.

3) IH ALERTS

ILMN (Illumina--$337.50; -0.45; optionable): Biotech
Company Profile
EARNINGS: 01/22/2019
STATUS: Double bottom. Nice solid rally to late September. Long run, needed a break, taking it. Fell into October, making the 200 day SMA late month. Rebounded into November then faded back to the 200 day SMA two weeks back. Nice doji test and rebound intraday on the reversal session. Through Thursday ILMN rallied up through the 50 day MA's to near the early November 'hump' in the double bottom. Paused Friday with a doji, and would not be surprised to see it pause another session or two. After that when it breaks higher, we want to move in for a rally to near the prior high. That move lands an 80%ish gain on the call options.

Volume: 1.213M Avg Volume: 1.232M
