HSE: Husky Energy

Crew Energy (CR) broke resistance a few weeks ago and is now retracing to test the new support level.  Respect of support would confirm the primary up-trend.

CR: Crew Energy

Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) is testing resistance at 55.00. Breakout would confirm the strong buying pressure and 63-day Twiggs Momentum recovery above zero.

BNS: Bank of Nova Scotia

Canada: TSX 60 and potential breakouts

The TSX 60 index is consolidating in a narrow band between 700 and 715. Upward breakout is likely and would signal a primary up-trend. Recovery of 63-day Twiggs Momentum above zero would strengthen the signal. Target for the initial advance is 790.

* Target calculation: 720 + ( 720 – 650 ) = 790

A screen of stocks with low Momentum but high buying pressure, as indicated by 21-day Twiggs Money Flow, reveals a list of 93 potential breakouts (after filtering out stocks with daily Value/Turnover traded of less than $1 million). Husky Energy [HSE], Crew Energy [CR] and Bank of Nova Scotia [BNS] are three that look interesting.
