See "Monday's Prospects" for a complete run-down of the first-wave analysis.
IMAX has the highest volume of the surviving symbols. It sent a bear signal on Friday. Its chart, however, is in an ambiguous uptrend following a sharp price decline in 2011. I say ambiguous because because it remains below the peak and so could be counted as either an uptrend or a downtrend, and nearer term it has yet to attain the lower low required to count it as a downtrend.
PGI's chart, a bull signal, shows an uptrend, but it is a lower liquidity stock that can be seen as nearing the end of an upward correction within a downtrend.
HWAY, a bull signal, has a bearish chart, and JMPLY, also a bull signal, lacks sufficient liquidity for me to trade.
The two survivors on the supplemental list of highly liquid bear signals, JCI and UAL, both are correcting within an uptrend. JCI is prone to whipsaws and UAL has no history of bear signals during the period analyzed.
Not great choices. I'm going to write a full analysis of IMAX. The chart is sufficiently ambiguous that a full analysis might well show it to be better than it seems. I'll post the write-up prior to the closing bell.
