The Blackstone Group - Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes:The Blackstone Group L.P. (BX)

The Chart of the Day is The Blackstone Group (NYSE:BX). I found the stock by sorting the New High List for frequency in the last month, eliminated the stocks not having positive gains in the last week and month and reviewed the charts with the Flipchart feature. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 11/7 the stock gained 20.57%.
