Two symbols, ARUN and FGP, passed my first round of analysis. (See "Thursday's Prospects".)
They are potential bull plays. Their charts, however, suggest that the break above the 20-day price channel in each instance is an upward retracement within a downtrend.
That makes any bull play on the stocks a counter-trend play, which is something I avoid under my rules.
I won't be performing further analysis or trading those symbols based on Wednesday's signals.
