    Another bullish looking chart…………….

  2. Larry/ON Says:

    LB – Up the most today of the Cdn banks at the moment. Cleared resistance at 42.83 now at highest level since July. 2021 high is 44.29 which is the next stop. The stock gets pounded for months on end by short sellers and then has huge gains on the rebound. When it clears 44.29 the next level of resistance is ultimately $50. This is a turnaround story that is a bit speculative. New CEO took over in March who was an exec at BNS.

  3. Ron/BC Says:

    The Small Cap has finally broken out over its 10 month sideways channel. Very impressive. Just a nose poke over the line so far and must hold above to confirm a valid breakout.

  4. Larry/ON Says:

    There was some bifurcation between tech and financials in reaction to interest rates and growth prospects. It is really nice to see tech pick up at the same time as financials move strongly higher post Fed announcement.

  5. Paula Says:

    GDX seems to reversing from earlier weakness. Dead cat bounce to resistance around 20 and 50 EMA or possible right shoulder of head and shoulder bottom?

  6. Ron/BC Says:


    Re:GDX: “IF” Price can stop about here and turn up and clear 33.50 that would be wildly bullish being an Inverse Head and Shoulder pattern starting from August. Wild and crazy Gold markets for some time now…………………

  7. Paula Says:

    yes, anything is possible. I don’t like chasing so this has my attention as something that hasn’t made a big move yet, unlike other parts of the market.

  8. Ron/BC Says:


    Here is a chart pattern you don’t hear about much more. Don’t know why because it’s a very good one and quite reliable. It’s called “The Squeeze”. When a variety of moving averages come together like this it tells you investors and traders are waiting for “something”. Then you see price breakout above them and run up. You probably know this but I just thought I’d mention it. Whenever you see The Squeeze it pays to take a 2nd look at the chart in any stock. No need for some sexy news story to buy.

  9. Paula Says:

    Thanks for the chart with the squeeze pattern on the moving averages. I hear the same thing re Bollinger bands but in this example I don’t think they add anything. I do own some banks and recently added to ZWB.TO. nice yield close to 5%. Bruce mentioned this one yesterday.
