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.

The major trend is down, the intermediate trend is sideways and the near-term trend is up. I am focusing on the near-term trend (last three weeks) in this analysis. The near-term trend is up and the resistance zone is identified on the above chart. A break above the resistance zone would indicate a target of $3.80. The price of copper is a good proxy for the growth in the world economy:in particular for China. A breakout above the resistance zone would bode well for the TSX Index which has a relatively large weighting in base metal stocks. A failure for copper to breakout above the resistance zone would indicate that the TSX Index will not breakout above the 13,500 resistance level.

U.S. Treasury 10 Year Note chart analysis

Intermediate uptrend with support at 1.900%

The U.S. Treasury 10 Year Bond is one of the four asset classes that I monitor which include stocks, bonds, commodities and currencies. The intermediate uptrend for the 10 year bond yield (bond price and yield have an inverse relationship – bond price drops then the yield rises) represents the increased movement of capital from the relative safety of this U.S. Treasury to stocks and to a lesser extent, commodities.
