The Chart of the Day belongs to Baxter International (BAX). I found the medical products stock by using Barchart to sort today's All Time High list first for the most frequent number of new highs in the last month, then again for technical buy signals of 80% or more. Then I use the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistency. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/2 the stock gained 16.10%.
