Technically, this has a pretty good chart. The stock recently broke out above its trading range, so it is definitely in an upward trend. Relative strength is also a positive. Seasonally, we are just entering into the period of seasonal strength. It looks like it is going to go higher both technically and seasonally in the next 3-4 months.

This just broke out to an all-time high. Canadian bank stocks have very distinct seasonality. Historically they have gone up as you get close to the end of the year. Normally they peak around the end of December. This year we have had an extension which has taken it into a higher level and an all-time high. Stocks like this, once they get into a new year, have a tendency to have an underperformance in the new year, the beginning of January through to the end of March.

This has been in an upward trend, but struggled a little recently, and has been underperforming the market. It's in a trading range of between $67.50 and $80. If you own this, you should probably continue to hold it. If it breaks below its support level of around $67.50, that would complete a double top pattern. If it moves above its previous high, of about $78, that would be quite encouraging.

This has very strong seasonality. It normally starts around the end of January, and moves through until springtime. It’s been in a trading range for the last couple of weeks, and will probably be there for another 2-3 weeks until about the middle of January. That will be the time for an opportunity.
