    If you are day trading, look at the 1 hour chart for a possible head and shoulders, target approximately 2564

    Revising that target to 2574

    Morning Ron/Bc,

    Any chance of getting your thought on BCE.TO charts please ? Do you think the next strong resistance and retreat is at 56.25 or 56.60 ?


  4. Ron/BC Says:

    KC is breaking out over $55.50 which is a significant breakout. “IF” price can hold above that breakout point the pattern suggests a run up to a double top of $59.66 with ‘some’ resistance at $58.
    Some Canadian banks are selling off to important support levels and showing large positive divergences on the oscillators. EX:BMO and others. Then again RY is breaking down below important price support. Perhaps this is just the market continuing to go over the waterfall and taking back all the gains made along the way.

  5. John Says:

    Weid. I purchased BCE.TO on 28-Nov-2018 for $58 CDN, still have it for my retirement.

    Today I noticed that shows very different price for BCE.TO for 28-Nov-2016.

    Does anybody know why the price difference ?

    Does it have something to do with Dividend adjustment somehow …

  6. Bernie Says:

    Thought some of the retirees on here might be interested in this article. Tough to find 5% bonds these days.

  7. Mary Says:


    Thanks for the update. Almost there. As per Armstrong turning point Nov. 21 and 22nd.
    Hopefully reached soon. Banks are encouraging to buy Mutual Funds now. Opportunity!

  8. Bobj Says:

    thank you for the article.
    Do you own green energy Bonds ?

  9. Paula Says:

    John re: #5
    I assume you mean that you purchased it in November 2016. I believe the difference in price would be due to the dividends. Stockcharts adjust for dividends. If you want to see the unadjusted price, put an underscore in front of the stock symbol. Here is RonB/C’s chart (without any annotations) showing the unadjusted price:

    Re: #8
    I don’t own any bonds outright, only in funds. I put the link out there mainly for discussion. After posting I searched 5i for their take on the CoPower Green Bonds. Their summation comment is almost a year old but its enough to deter the small interest I had in this product.

    Their reply/comment was dated January 29, 2018 so I don’t think they’d mind me copying and pasting it here for non-subscribers. Here goes:

    “We do not have major concerns here, but we have not followed the space much at all. The main issue is liquidity. The bonds cannot be sold prior to maturity. We do not like this. In addition, as a private company managing the bonds there is very little financial information to go on in evaluating the manager. There is a leap of faith needed here, and we do not like that with any investment.”

    I would add please to do due diligence before purchasing any security and don’t buy what you don’t understand.

    Armstrong today:

    “The US share market is still finishing its consolidation here in 2018. The future will depend greatly upon the closing for year-end. In the Dow, we have elected 2 Weekly Bearish so far whereas we elected 3 in the S&P500 and the NASDAQ.

    We have a Weekly Bearish Reversal at 24077 but the main bank of support starts at the 23995-23340 level. The maximum retest of support may reach the first Monthly Bearish at 21600.

    We can see that the S&P500 advanced following the Dow, but where the Dow moved about the uptrend channel, the S&P fell below it and then rallied to new highs in September but test the channel from beneath.

    Here we have a Weekly Bearish Reversal at 261075 and a Monthly Bearish at 259460.

    The NASDAQ also was pushing through the top of the uptrend channel and it has yet to penetrate the bottom as has been the case for the Dow.

    Here we have a Weekly Bearish at 708480 and the Monthly Bearish lies at 699100

    Keep in mind that a lower closing beneath the 2017 closings of 2501744 in the Dow, 269073 in the S&P500, and 702848 in the NASDAQ Composite will suggest the retest of support should unfold in 2019 before advancing.”
