Programmatic buy signals for 78 shares in the QV portfolio

April 8, 2021

The chart above of the Nasdaq 100 looks very positive as do other charts of US indices. I have been going through the QV for Shares portfolio looking fr programmatic buy signals and I have found 78. These are listed below. There are so many I am keeping the details as succinct as possible, just the code and the price. As always all these alerts will go in the table. I will mark them with a W so I know that they are weekly-based programmatic alerts.

I would emphasise that these are important buy signals well worth acting upon. The hard thing with QV for Shares is not to trigger a programmatic buy signal but to get in the table in the first place. Shares are in the table because they are 3G (great chart, great growth, great story) plus some magic (often great management) and something new and exciting happening to keep the shares climbing.

Seventy-eight alerts may seem a large number but that compares with over 1630 alerts made in total (many for shares in the same company) since QV for Shares was launched. If somebody had acted on every single alert their portfolio would have appreciated over 50pc and these alerts would represent an additional investment of less than five per cent of their total investment.

I am on a learning curve with my new system of programmatic buy signals but I am very hopeful that they will become an important part of the strategy going forward. If market trends stay healthy, as I expect, there will be lots of signals, which will make it easier to stagger the process of building a holding in each stock you have in a portfolio. This in turn, over time, should help ensure that the investment becomes profitable. How profitable will depend on the strength of the uptrend in that particular stock, which explains why stock selection is still critical to the success of the Quentinvest strategy.

The fact that there are so many buy signals is a positive sign for the stock market as a whole. What is also noticeable is the number of very large companies like Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Microsoft, which are giving buy signals. This should be a good omen for both share trends generally and for ETFs of which these giant stocks are often important constituents.
