    Hello Paula,

    It was me that had asked you about I sold mine on tuesday as well for a small profit. Will be looking to get back into it when the time is right. Would be interested in knowing if you jump into it again.


  2. Paula Says:

    Hi KC,
    I thought maybe it was you and I saw that you sold it. I still have a position but wanted to sell some to take profits/raise cash and will be buying back in when there is another pullback, which I expect, like everyone else. The reaction to the earnings this morning seemed a bit on the negative side but the overall market is down, so I expect that it’s mostly a sell into resistance, which I guess is what you and I did. It still seems to be holding up well – I do believe the high dividend supports the stock price, especially when interest rates don’t seem to be going up, at least not in the foreseeable future.
    Here is RonB/C’s chart from Jan 30 with ADX added on the bottom. Green was above red and ADX on the recent run up but green has now crossed below ADX and red is turning up. Also, ADX seems to be making a lower high, so I expect a trading range with a possible pullback to ~ 55. This is the adjusted for dividends Canadian stock. It will different on the US side, which Ron/BC prefers.

  3. Ron/BC Says:

    The Canadian dollar $CDW has pulled back to the important 75 support level. This needs to hold here or price will breakdown and selloff sharply once again. The 2nd chart of Seasonality doesn’t suggest a positive outcome for $CDW in February and March.

  4. Ron/BC Says:

    BCE (NYSE) had good support at $38-$39 which was tested again in Nov/Dec. Price is very overbought and has rolled over and is testing $43 support. Not worth chasing a couple of bucks here I don’t think. A pullback to the 200ema that price has shown respect for in the past might be worth a look at the time but price action is volatile with this stock. March and April Seasonality charts look good.

  5. Ron/BC Says:

    KC NTR

    The latest weather report for Victoria and other West Coast areas here predicts snow and bitterly cold temperatures the next couple of days at least. The old saying: Speak of the devil and he’s sure to appear” seems to fit. Mind you they often talk bad weather news here but seeing is believing as it’s usually not much to be concerned about. BUTTTTTTTTTTT “Maybe it’s different this time”………………

  6. Paula Says:

    Thanks for the NYSE BCE chart and comments. Will try to wait patiently for a pullback.

  7. Paula Says:

    It also helps to see the CDN dollar chart – appreciate you posting that. Keep warm!
