    Yup, it has been a rough year. And like a typical bear market it has been volatile. I’ll be glad when the sun comes out again.

    Manulife Financial ( … may have some potential. The stock price has been moving sideways for nearly two years. A double bottom has formed recently (at support) with positive divergence on several indicators. Watch the MACD (50,200,10) for a bullish cross of the signal line. There is some overhead resistance that needs to be overcome, but any pullback would be a good entry point (for my risks tolerance). Not a recommendation, just an observation.

    Well the sun has been shining often in Victoria along with the golfers enjoying the day. Doesn’t help me much as it’s too soon to golf after my surgery. (so they say). Very aggravating driving by a golf course and seeing them all golfing in the sunshine. I can’t see it lasting much longer but you never know.

    If I recall Manulife is very sensitive to interest rate changes………….
