Great-West Life (GWO:TSX) candlestick chart analysis

Another breakout for Great-West Life on the daily chart
Another breakout for  Great-West Life on the daily candlestick chart.  RSI is confirming the uptrend.

Great-West Life Candlestick Chart

The Lifecos are having a good run as the bond yields increase and the US indexes advance. Combine this with an above average dividend yield and the rally may continue. Great-West Life, Power Financial, Manulife and Sun Life are all moving to the upside.

Reference the Great-West Life website to review the fundamental data for the company.

Reference my last chart analysis for the TSX Index which is currently struggling in a consolidation range due to the energy and materials components.

“If rates drop 100 bps, Great-West would see its core earnings drop an estimated 9%, compared with 33% for Manulife and 45% for Sun Life. As a result, Mr. Aiken prefers Great-West Life based on its smaller exposure to interest rates.”

PetroBakken Energy (PBN:TSX) candlestick chart analysis showing the morning doji star candlestick pattern. And a bullish white candlesticks gaps away from the previous white candlestick with a confirmed breakout at $17.00. Volume, On Balance Volume (OBV) and the Relative Strength Indicator (RSI) are confirming the uptrend.

The morning doji star is a major reversal pattern which called an end to the near-term downtrend that started on February 23. It is comprised of three candlesticks. The first candlestick is the dark tall bearish candlestick that appeared on March 5. The bears were in control at this stage but the volume was relatively light. Then on March 6, a gap appears with a doji (narrow or the same opening and closing) which is the second part of the pattern. Then on March 7, there is another gap and a tall white candlestick associated with above average volume. The reversal pattern is now completed. This particular morning star formation is rare and would be properly called an abandoned baby. It has two gaps where there is no overlap of the shadows.

You must always be cognizant of the fundamental news for a company and the reaction on the chart. View the following release for the details: PetroBakken Energy Ltd. is pleased to announce our fourth quarter and year-end 2011 financial and operating results.
