A rare Momentum Monday here on Tuesday due to Labor Day and the markets being closed.

As always, Ivanhoff and I tour the markets looking for the momentum. My dog Lindzee joined for the open. Not much has changed in the last few weeks, we continue to see strong tech and semi’s and financials and crypto, but we did see some fresh breakouts in software stocks and we went through that in the video. You can watch the show right here on YouTube. I have also embedded the show here on the blog:

The summer is over, but the crypto summer rages on with Solana up another 100 or so percent last week. I try and explain what I am seeing and hearing about the incredible run in the episode.

Here are Ivanhoff’s notes:

Most of last week’s price action can be summarized in one sentence: tech stocks continue to outperform the rest of the market while cryptos are outperforming the tech sector.

Semis are hovering near all-time highs – SMH, NVDA. AMD, AMAT, and LRCX are setting up for a potential breakout.

Software stocks have been extremely strong – not only cybersecurity but also application and infrastructure software names – IGV, SKYY, ZS, OKTA, S, NET, MDB, WDAY, TEAM, U, SNOW, CRWD, BILL, SHOP, LSPD, etc.

The payment stocks – PYPL and SQ are both working on new bases. PYPL seems ready to close its earnings gap and push towards 300. SQ is setting up for a breakout near 275.

Covid-related stocks are perking up again. The mRNA vaccines – MRNA and BNTX finished on a high note last Friday. The testing stocks like DGX, TMO, HOLX, QDEL, have been slowly climbing as well. Health pass stock YOU is also setting up for a potential bounce.
