The macd and Person's Proprietary Signal moved into bull phase today, joining the parabolic sar, which is in its third day of a bull run.
The price remains below the 20-day simple moving average, and a push above that level ($43.25) would be strong confirmation that rise had legs.
On the three-month chart, TSX hit a swing high of $48.50 in April and has since traced a gentle decline, hitting the chart low of $40.93 on July 8.
The stock has been trading flat for three days running, and I would like to see some higher highs day by day before opening a position in my accounts.
