  1. Ron/BC Says: couldn’t hold onto support at $47 and broke down today. Next support is at the two year uptrendline and price support at $45. has pulled back to its two year uptrendline and is very oversold.

    The large U.S.Utility ETF:XLU on the NYSE is also very oversold at testing the $50-$51 support level. remains in a very tight $46.60-$47.26 range.

  2. Sandra Says:

    Hi Ron/BC:
    Do you think Teck.B/TO will pullback down after red today or go to R2 on daily chart? Is at 35.51 recovered from drop to 35.09 today.


  3. NRG Says:


    Which stocks are you dividend investors putting your $5500 contribution into this year?

  4. Mick/NV Says:


    I moved 50 shares of from my margin account to my TFSA, have about $300 of room left, that will be just cash.

  5. Ron/BC Says:

    TECK/ broke out over the November high of $35 but is also very overbought. Support is the previous breakout point at $31.40 which is also the present Pivot Point P. With the breakout price could run up to R-2 at $37 but with the present overbought level I’d keep a tight stop on it meanwhile. I’m not a big fan of Pivot points but put them on the chart if you follow them. The long term chart (2nd chart) shows the strong resistance level at $37. You can only get so much milk out of one cow…………..

    NRG – For me it is BEP.UN

  7. Sandra Says:

    Thanks for #5. Agree, time to look for another cow!

    Mining stocks are pulling back or may be just profit taking after a nice ride for last couple of weeks. SU, CNQ and so many others look so overbought. Can’t find anything to buy!
    Dividend paying stocks (defensive sector mostly) on my list are still pulling back.

  8. Sandra Says:

    Oil bullish …

    Re: TFSA
    I plan to go with a new momentum focused strategy in my TFSA starting later this month. I’ll be trimming my AD.TO and CJT.TO. Then, depending on valuations, new purchases will likely be PEO.V, IBG.TO, AGF-B.TO, CGY.TO and RME.TO.

  10. Bernie Says:

    Speaking of TFSA’s, I like the way this guy thinks and acts:

    Definitely a DGI.

  11. Sandra Says:

    Dividend stocks pulling back :

  12. dave/ab Says:

    nrg #3. I have been focusing on stocks that have been down for a while with a western Canada focus. Look at Liquor Stores- liq. Just broke above long-term resistance of 11.00.
