The Chart of the Day belongs to the IT systems design company Jack Henry & Associates (JKHY). I found the stock by using Barchart’s powerful screening function to find the stock with the highest Weighted Alpha and technical buy signals that are closest to their 52 week highs, then used the Flipchart function to review the charts for consistent price appreciation. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 2/9 the stock gained 16.08%. The stock is within .05% of its 52 week high.
