Chart Picks – Two weeks ago, we added 3 picks to the list, and they’ve done ok as shown in the table below.
Today, there were 4 buys and 31 sells from the swing trade screens of 52 gold mining stocks from Monday’s action. The rest had no signal. The big edge to the sell side isn’t a good sign. Even the 4 charts with buy signals weren’t inspiring. So I added no new picks.
Because of the weakness in the screening data and the fact that most stocks remain in longer term downtrends. I’ve added tight stops to the existing picks.
Picks closed out over in November-December had an average gain of 10% on an average holding period of 46 calendar days.
