Monday: No Trade

Five symbols survived my initial screening, all having broken out to the upside. Each can quickly be disposed of as not worth a further look.

The most liquid, LUV, has a negative win/lose yield spread on even odds of a winning or losing trade since its present trend began in April 2012. I like the yields to be in my favor if the odds aren't.

Two symbols have historical odds in favor of unsuccessful trades. The success rate for GWW is 40%, and for GIII, 29%. It's a preference that I go against if the chart has a redeeming feature that shows things might well be changing. There are no such features on these two charts.

IHS and GHL are both in upside corrections within bear trends, and arguably near the top of the corrections. My opinion would change for IHS if it traded above $118.93, and for GHL, above $61.99.

No trade today.
