    How we found the Chart of the Day:

    We found the "Chart of the Day" by scanning the Barchart "All Time High" list. In order to get to that list, we first clicked on the Stocks menu item on the Barchart home page, then on the "All Time Highs" menu item on the left menu bar. A stock that has posted a new All-Time high is typically showing strong upside momentum. We then used the Filter pull-down to select just Large Cap stocks.
