  • Old Line Bancshares - Barchart's Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Jan 21, 2014 3:47 PM | about stocks: OLBK

    The Chart of the Day is Old Line Bancshares (NASDAQ:OLBK). I found the stock by sorting today's New High List for frequency in the last month and eliminated the stocks that did not have positive gains in the last week and month. I used the Flipchart feature to review the charts, since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 11/19 the stock gained 14.47%.

    It is the parent company of Old Line Bank, a Maryland chartered commercial bank headquartered in Waldorf, Maryland. Old Line Bank's primary market area is the suburban Maryland (Washington, D.C. suburbs) counties of Prince George's, Charles and northern St. Mary's. It also targets customers throughout the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

    Watch the 100 day moving average very closely for signs of momentum weakness.
