    Good Morning Ron/BC,

    If you have a few minutes, I’d love to have your TA on CAE.TO please. Have you ever owned it?


  2. Larry/ON Says:

    Market Strength – A lot of traders were wondering if the market was going to roll over yesterday from overbought to make some kind of minor correction. Looking at pre-market today the buyers are back in charge and it probably is on the headline this morning that China invited US negotiators for another round of talks.

  3. Ron/BC Says:

    KC has been in a nice uptrend for many years with the 50ema above the 200ema consistently. Presently price is at a double top and very overbought. A pullback to the 200ema would be a better entry point than where it is now. I wouldn’t buy a breakout here either. The overall market looks vulnerable for bad news with far too much confidence in being all in. Too many eager beavers in the market……………….
    And no, I’ve never owned it.

  4. FishFat Says:

    Precision Drilling (
    A double bottom may be forming. Several indicators have positive divergence.

  5. Larry/ON Says:

    Fish Fat – PD and if you look at XOP, which Tech Talk states has extended an intermediate downtrend. both have descending triangle chart formations. On top of it I would not touch any energy stock this close to tax loss selling season. I would wait at least for a confirmed break of the downtrend line before buying any energy stock. IMO don’t buy an energy stock until after Christmas.

  6. FishFat Says:

    You make some valid points. This is a risky counter-trend trade.
    PD has dropped nearly 42% since the beginning of the year – so it is likely to take a few hits during the tax loss selling season. On the other hand, PD has been at or near these levels for two months now. Many of the weaker hands will have caved by now. Also, the risk-on seasonal for small-cap stocks starts mid-December – as does seasonal strength for Precision Drilling.
    The price is near solid support, and as such a valid entry point considering the positive divergence of several indicators. However, waiting for a breakout above the downtrend before entering the trade (or trend change relative to the $TSX) would also be legitimate strategies.

  7. Larry/ON Says:

    Who thinks the Leafs will win against Arizona? If they blow-out Arizona on their first game with Sheldon Keefe it will be a major statement about how bad the situation was with Babcock. I think they will be fired up to prove something.

    Grey Cup this weekend!!!

    Who will end their long drought? Winnipeg last won in 1990, Hamilton in 1999.

    Go Bombers Go! …takes me back to the days of Kenny Ploen and Angela Mosca.

  10. Bernie Says:


    Me too. My first experience with the CFL was watching the 1962 Grey Cup on TV. It took 2 days to complete due to the fog postponement. I was hooked and a big fan since then. I had Edmonton Eskimo season tickts for 30 years, rarely miss a game on TV and have attended 20 Grey Cups.
