  1. What about RS rating? Weak market demands higher RS readings which this stock does not have. Also, weak acc/dis profile and group chart looks weak. I know you can do better.

  2. Sheldon,
    You are right – the RS is currently weak and the group is nothing to write home about but I am looking at the trading range and the past history of the young stock.

    The stock did gain 51% from September to November but has since hit the resistance from the weekly chart.

    The RS was 99 in 2005 and early 2006. I don’t own the stock but will buy according to what I say in the post.

    We’ll see what happens – the stock may fall-over and never give the entry opportunity I am looking for.

  3. Rich Illing says:

    Very insightful. So the price will go up if it stays above the 200 dma, and the price will go down if it drops below the 200 dma. Can I then conclude that the price will go up if the price goes up and the price will go down if the price goes down?
