The Chart of the Day belongs to Aptargroup (ATR). I found the plastic products stock by using Barchart to sort today's All Time High list first for the most frequent new highs in the last month, then again for technical buy signals of 80% or more. I then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistency. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 1/29 the stock gained 8.00%.
