The Chart of the Day is Incyte Corp (NASDAQ:INCY). I found the stock by using Barchart to sort the Percentage Advances list for frequency in the last month, skipped the stock that didn't have positive gains for the last week and month and then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 10/16 the stock gained 68.47%.
