Horse racing

Today, I got an email from Barcharts with a Chart of the Day ....BDX

You will notice the author Jim Van Meerten from Barchart, found a Trend Spotter signal on 2/24 which by the looks of the chart in Horse racing analogy, the race is already around the first turn and there is no way of catching the winner. Or thanks man, why didn't you tell us on that date. For others, ya missed the Bus.

Jim does this tease on almost every chart he posts. I have looked at almost 500 stocks so far.

However, we the kewl dudes would have mounted up on BDX on 2/11 or 2/16 per the CCi 14 rules right out of the starting gate. If you look at his Barchart technical indicators, he must have cherry picked BDX from a list of candidates on that day as we would have done.

Let's look on the FW chart to see how the race began. 2/11 vs 2/24.

BAX (a potential June seasonality trade stock) was yesterday. DEI a few days ago. And of course, CINR is still climbing.

Hope you're getting the answer to being Healthy Wealthy and Wize and run the scan/s accordingly.
