Chart Picks – The numbers surged over the past week but 6 month cycles remained deeply negative. That needs to show much more improvement for us to have confidence that there will be an extended rally. But this is a start. So I’m continuing to nibble.
I’ve tweaked the method to use screens from each day of the past week instead of just the last day of the weekly period. Charts that show up more than once, with buy signals yesterday are preferred. From that list I pick those with structures I like. This week I’m adding one to the list as shown below. I’m staying with the existing picks, and allowing breathing room with no, or very loose stops. Currently open picks show an average gain of 9.4% on an average holding period of 3 weeks.
Picks closed out over in November-December had an average gain of 10% on an average holding period of 46 calendar days.
