In the past, this has had very strong seasonality from approximately from the middle of December right through until the end of February. This year nothing happened. We are not getting the normal seasonality you would expect. (See Top Picks.)

Traditionally, Canadian bank stocks do very well right through until the reporting of 4th quarter results, the last week in November and the 1st week in December. After that, this one has a history of underperforming. Right now, the stock is struggling, hitting its head against its all-time high. As you get close to the end of the year, the bank stocks have a history of underperforming right through until March. If you are a trader, you probably want to take some profits between now and the end of the year. If you are a longer-term investor, a bank is a bank and you are going to do okay.

He is not sure about the seasonality of this, but technically, it has been in a longer-term downward trend, and just recently broke the downward trend. It's now trending higher and is outperforming the market. It’s broken above 2 resistance points. He would stick with this for a trade coming into springtime.

Historically, steel stocks like this do very, very well from October right through until the end of the year, and then have another move into the spring time. Right now, we are just about ready to enter into the period of seasonal strength. If it moves above its trading range now, that will confirm that once again it is going through its period of seasonal strength.

We’ve just entered into the period of seasonal strength for copper and zinc stocks. Now is usually the time when copper stocks start to show positive seasonality. Currently it's in a trading range, but has started to outperform the market. If it moved above its current trading range, which would take it into a multiyear high, that would be very, very bullish. This is a nice opportunity to buy the stock on any kind of weakness in the next couple of weeks.

This has very strong seasonality. Historically it has done very well from approximately October right through until approximately February of each year. That doesn't work all the time. In 2016, we started to get into squabbles with the US on tariffs, etc. His chart shows it is working again this year. On a seasonal basis, it’s time to be an owner right through until the end of February. Technically it’s in a trading range right now. A move above its resistance at around $80 would be a very positive indication that seasonality will continue right through until about the end of February.
