CN 5-Year Logarithmic Chart

When did you board the train for this ride? In most cases, the simple rules make the most profit and are the easiest to trade. Buy when the stock crosses above the 200-day moving average. Or buy when the 50-day moving average crosses above the 200-day. Sell when the stock crosses below the 200-day or the 50-day crosses below below the 200-day. Add a filter so you don’t get whipsawed. You have your trading rules. It can be even programmed as a simple algorithm and let your computer make the trades. It doesn’t get any simpler than that!

CN released the Quarterly Results today.
